Huesca missed the many opportunities they had in their confrontation with Eibar, which they supported the saves of his goalkeeper, Marko Dmitrovic and he continues without knowing the victory, which makes his situation worse, in the relegation zone, in the classification.
José Luis Mendilibar’s team, who added two wins and a draw in four away games, also took advantage of the problems of the Alto-Aragonese team to scratch a point in a game in which the great protagonist was their goalkeeper, who saved his team from clear defeat with their stops because the locals had plenty of opportunities to have won.
Miguel Angel Sánchez’s team “Michel” lacked effectiveness, something that his rival did have, supported by a stellar performance by his goalkeeper, he was able to score with just a couple of opportunities.
Both teams played a first half with the expected script, a dominating Huesca carrying the weight of the match and owning the ball and an Eibar waiting to steal and go with speed against it.
The plan worked better for the locals at first since arrivals on the Eibar goal were almost constant testing the strength of Serbian goal Marko Dmitrovic, who became the great protagonist with his providential stops.
The Aragonese team reached the rival area with some ease, especially in the left lane with the winger Javi Galán and put very dangerous centers that made the armera defense suffer.
The chances accumulated for the men of Miguel Ángel Sánchez “Michel”, even with a disallowed goal, with tight shots and with especially three very clear with Dmitrovic as great savior andn minutes 26, 32 and 36.
In the latter the goal made two stops almost point-blank to shots from “Sandro” Ramírez and Mikel Rico, so that in the third attempt it was Paulo Oliveira who saved a new shot from Mikel Rico under the sticks.
The Alto Aragonese team saw the goal closer and closer, but two minutes after this triple opportunity, and the only clear option for their rival, Eibar took the lead in a corner in which the two visiting center-backs were the protagonists, Paulo Oliveira prolonging a spur ball and Argentine Esteban Burgos clinching the goal.
Things got complicated for the owners of the land when shortly after returning from changing rooms the referee signaled a penalty on Paulo Oliveira which, after being reviewed in the VAR, was canceled giving a break to the locals.
Michel’s team, unlike the first period, did not find the way to the Basque area in the first minutes and hardly disturbed the foreign goal. The fast and fluid game of the first period was gone and Eibar did not suffer and also prevented the Huesca from having the ball in their power.
However, after half an hour he returned to produce with clarity and after two heads from Rafa Mir and Borja García who came out licking the post, the first hit in another chopped header in the 67th minute restoring equality on the scoreboard that finally it remained because neither was able to re-create danger.– Datasheet:
