Tiny Eibar take down ten-man Granada

Basque minnows Eibar created essentially the most of their reprieve from relegation last season to move best of Spain’s La Liga following the initial round of matches having a 3-1 win at ten-man Granada on Monday.

Eibar finished third bottom in the table on their debut campaign in La Liga last season, but had been permitted to maintain their spot in the prime flight when Elche have been relegated for economic irregularities.

And the side using a 5,000 capacity stadium are now searching down around the giants of Barcelona and True Madrid soon after objectives from Adrian, Gonzalo Escalante and Mikel Arruabarrena handed them victory at Nuevo Los Carmenes. Ruben Rochina pulled a aim back for Granada early inside the second-half before Salva Ruiz was sent-off for the hosts.
