Eibar make it 5 wins in 6

Two goals from Japanese midfielder Takashi Inui helped make it five wins in six for Eibar at home to Girona on Thursday evening.

The Basque club got off to the perfect start when the 29-year-old fired home after only 42 seconds, before Charles doubled their lead within the opening 10 minutes.

A stunning David Timor free-kick gave the visitors hope, but it was to be quickly extinguished as Inui restored Eibar’s two-goal cushion, before Joan Jordan struck a fourth in stoppage time.

Eibar rise to seventh in La Liga ahead of the Christmas break, while Girona stay 10th.
