He Eibar he finally achieved his first win of the 2020-21 season in Ipurua, thanks to a double by one of the young pearls of Spanish football, Bryan Gil, who liquidated the Pomegranate and slowed its progression.
The international southpaw U21 from Barbate threw the team on his back on a heavy playing field and with conditions that were apparently more unfavorable for a player of his characteristics. This victory drives Eibar, which puts land in the middle with the descent, while Granada slows down in their attempts to get closer to the European zone.
Despite not having turned twenty yet, Bryan Gil, on loan from Sevilla, is showing his category and quality thanks to the confidence and continuity that José Luis Mendilíbar is giving him. Not only did he make his debut as a scorer in LaLiga Santander, he did it twice and to also give the gunsmith team the first victory at home.
The Andalusian has become the new ‘dagger’ of the Mendilíbar team, which this time he was able to squeeze his traditionally brave bet, something complicated against an opponent as well ordered as Diego Martínez, who remains in the fight to repeat European classification.
Bryan Gil was the protagonist of some of the best actions in the first half of a game that as progressed became more and more locked, with difficulty of the two teams to control the ball due to the abundant water that fell on the grass and with an even game of fighting it continues and dull work on the part of the 22 players.
The clearest chance of this entire first half came in the 29th minute through, how could it be otherwise, an individual play by Bryan Gil, who after dribbling two defenders crossed into the area and Kike García’s shot ended on the right post of the goal, after Rui Silva deflected the ball with a save.
But the real explosion of the left-handed local player did not come until after the break. The young international was the one who made the game uneven. He opened the account by taking advantage of a rejection of the goal from Granada to the launch of a penalty by Edu Exposito that Venezuelan Yangel Herrera had committed on Sergi Enrich.
Not happy with it, and despite the fact that Diego Martínez opted for a triple change to change the decoration since Luis Suárez had the tie in his boots, he pointed the game with a very tight shot to the left post and with hardly any gap.
With the victory practically settled, Eibar was able to even increase its advantage against a Granada that had already yielded to the Bryan Gil festival.
