Eibar, on the other hand, have had a battle on their hands this season. Outperforming themselves even by being present in the Primera, they sat in 15th place going into the game, but having never lost the mantle of being exceedingly tough to play against.
Remarkably, in the 12th minute, it was the hosts who took the lead, and they did it through their goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic. He stepped up for the spot-kick and finished with aplomb, going hard left before being mobbed by his teammates.
Suarez won it late on. He earned a penalty in the game’s dying minutes before stepping up to convert it without problems, earning his side an additional two points that could have massive implications in the title race.
