He Elche, with a great goal from Argentine Lucas Boyé, achieved his first victory on Wednesday in his return to LaLiga Santander, and he did it at the cost of a Eibar still without winning, he missed a penalty in the boots of Edu Expósito and his future is complicated.
The match started with intensity and with two occasions practically in a row for Elche. The first, a boarding in minute 1 by Josan, and the second, a minute later, with a long shot by Argentine Lucas Boyé that Dmtrovic saved.
The party hardened and the fouls followed one another in the first quarter of an hour, reaching a total of 7: 4 for Eibar and 3 for Elche.
Eibar’s positional dominance was total, without being translated into plays of real danger, but when it was most noticeable, a counterattack from Elche ended after a rejection by an armored defender in the legs of Lucás Boyé, the Argentine on the turn and in a play of true talent crossed the ball stuck to the post, out of reach by Dmitrovic,
He Eibar came out on fire in the second half and then Arbilla forced a corner kick into the Elche area with a subsequent shot from Kike García that ended with a hand from Pere Milla. The referee did not whistle in the first instance, but after reviewing the VAR, he awarded the maximum penalty.
Edu Expósito missed it by sending the ball high and over the crossbar. A second blow to the spirits of Eibar after Boyé’s goal.
Koné’s entry, which replaced a tired Boyé, was a new booster for Elche and in just one minute he had a good opportunity in a boarding school where he went for speed and crossed a dangerous ball that he did not find a finisher.
He fatigue began to make a dent in the ranks of Eibar, that with more momentum than head continued attacking, but Elche would no longer have problems maintaining the result.
