Sporting stun Eibar at Ipurua

  /  autty

If Eibar thought that Sporting's 2-0 win in the first leg of this Copa del Rey round of 32 tie was a fluke, that notion was soon put to bed once Alvaro Jimenez headed the visitors into the lead at Ipurua.

Worse was to follow when Pablo Perez added a second six minutes before half time.

A double substitution from the hosts had the desired effect and Marc Cucurella got the Basques back into the game if not the tie.

Charles' 87th minute second only succeeded in Eibar saving some face in front of their own fans, who let their team know exactly what they thought of being sent packing out of the competition after the full-time whistle.
