Eibar went from 13th to seventh courtesy of a better goal difference than Granada.
La Real came into the game emotionally and physically drained following their Europa League clash with Napoli in Italy last Thursday.
The Basque side qualified for the last 32 of the competition in dramatic late style. Eibar, by contrast, hadn’t played since last Monday.
The hosts welcomed back David Silva to the matchday squad with the playmaker returning to the bench after a period out.
He came on in the 69th minute to mark his return to first team action with an appearance against his former club. Silva spent 2004/05 on loan at Eibar while on the books at Valencia.
The hosts thought they had found a winner inside the final ten, but Igor Zubeldia‘s effort was ruled out after a VAR review.
