Villarreal won 3-1 away to penultimate Eibar in a match of the 27th round of La Liga. The guests managed to start well and scored in the first minute, when Gerard Moreno passed deep into the penalty area, and there My Gomez beat the guard of the hosts with the first play of the match. The hit was examined with VAR, but was nevertheless confirmed.
Shortly after half an hour of play, an excellent counterattack boiled Eibar`s defense completely unprepared and Carlos Baka was able to control calmly and left no chance for Marko Dmitrovic for 2-0.
Five minutes before the end of the first half, the hosts got a perfect opportunity to return to the match after a penalty was awarded for a handball by Pervis Estupinan. The situation was re-examined with VAR and the penalty was upheld. Esteban Burgos stands behind the ball, but only to see Sergio Asenjo save his shot.
The hosts still managed to reduce by 2:1 ten minutes after the start of the second half, when Sergio Enric shot very accurately in the left corner and this time overcame Asenjo. Ten minutes later, Villarreal were close to regaining a two-goal lead, but Baka`s shot was saved by Dmitrovic.
The visitors` players were left with a man less in the 80th minute when Etie Capo received a red card. However, the visitors improved to a third goal in the 92nd and thus put an end to the dispute after a goal by Alfonso Pedraza.
