Eibar heads its way to hell no matter how much Mendilibar tries to prevent it. The die seems cast for the Basque team, which added its 15th game without winning (11 losses and four draws), chaining four consecutive defeats after falling to a very effective Granada. The Basques are five points away from salvation. It is not an insurmountable distance, but the sensations are terrible. Eibar tried to rebel in the second half and Kike made a 2-1 that invited optimism. The forward broke his team’s drought with a great move against Vallejo. Granada, intelligent, pressed and took advantage of the extreme weakness of the Basque team to make a thrashing almost without disheveled. Soldier, always on guard, and Kenedy rounded off a magnificent result for the competitive Andalusian team, light years away from this completely fallen Eibar, caught on the backlash when desperately looking for a draw.
Mendilibar changes men, ponders new systems and his team seems to fight, until the first blow appears almost undeservedly. A ball won by Puerta reached Soldado, who fired with force enabled by a foot from Arbilla. Eibar did not believe it. His good staging was erased with a stroke of the pen. No matter how hard he tries, everything works against him. And more when the blows do not stop. A strange clearance by Arbilla on his goal that ended up brushing the crossbar ended in a corner kick. The ball then reached Puertas, which hit well from the edge of the area. The ball went in after it touched the young Atienza. So, simply put, it is impossible.
Kike García gave some hope, but everything was a mere illusion. Granada pressed 2-1 and ended up beating a broken toy. Eibar’s mistakes are too rude, like Cote’s header that allowed Kenedy’s last goal. The Andalusians, much more effective, is not that they scored without effort, far from it, but with solvency. In this way, they reach a formidable 42 points, seven from European places and with one game less to play. Granada cannot yet be ruled out from the continental fight, something that will begin to be defined in the next regional derby against Sevilla. A great merit considering the 51 games he has already played. Eibar has a lot of suffering ahead. Another derby also awaits him, in this case against Real, a clash that comes to an extreme situation.
