Eibar win on Liga debut

A Javi Lara goal gave Eibar a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in Los Ameros’ first ever Liga game.

Lara struck from a free-kick almost on the touchline shortly before half-time and Gaizka Gartiano’s side held on for three points.

Eibar and La Real are separated by little more than 30 miles, making the match a Basque derby and Coach Garitano spent three seasons at Anoeta, between 2005 and 2008.

Before that he represented Eibar for four years, making more than 100 appearances for the club and returned in the dugout in 2012, having been assistant and Coach of Eibar B before then.
