The ghosts reappear in the merengue team, when luck is over and individual errors give away goals, like Ceballos’ error that gave the goal that would open the score for Eibar and Odriozola’s error that would allow to extend the advantage and leave KO to the white team that lacked answers.
The first time was very even, any of the 2 teams could open the score, it was full of rhythm and intensity. The Madrid would waste 2 clear opportunities, one of Bale and another of Benzema to go up, but the Eibar kept its plan and found its prize, through a backlash with Cucurella as a protagonist, came the goal that opened the scoring. A bit in which the VAR had to intervene but finally, confirmed the goal of Escalante, with the bad clearance of Ceballos. From the goal, at minute 17 the soul of the white team disappeared.
The second half was for the forgetfulness, the Eibar with a great collective game and having as a figure the Catalan Cucurella did not take much time in extending the advantage. The intense pressure put on each of Madrid’s exits had an effect on the second goal. Cucurella managed to steal a ball from Odriozola to assist Sergi Enrich with a low cross into the area that the striker finished with his right leg at the back of the goal. In the same play Odriozola would be injured giving way to Carvajal and would only spend 5 minutes for Eibar to put the final thrust, a center of Cucurella culminated in the second goal. On this occasion and after playing in Sergi Enrich, Kike García signed the authorship of the third.
A tough defeat for the white team that leaves it 6th in the standings waiting for the end of day 13 of the Santander league.
