First Half Eibar 0-1 Deportivo Alaves April 15 2018
In a hardfought Basque derby, John Guidetti‘s fifth minute pinpoint strike from outside the box into the bottom corner proved the difference.
The Swede’s effort was his team’s only shot on target of the game, and only one of two attempts at all, compared to Eibar’s 15 shots as they enjoyed plenty of possession but were wasteful in the final third.
The home side went more direct as they battled to find a way through but it wasn’t as fruitful as hoped as a physical Alaves side rose to the challenge.
Alaves hung on by the skin of their teeth to secure another three points in their quest for safety in LaLiga whilst, for Eibar, defeat resigns them to falling further adrift of the Europa League places.
