Struggling Eibar Thrashes Betis 5-0

EIBAR, Spain Ė Eibar broke its seven-match winless streak with a 5-0 rout on Monday of Betis, as the home side nearly equaled its scoring total for the previous 11 games.

The victory lifts Eibar to 11 points, but leaves the Basque side in the 17th spot in La Liga, just four points above drop zone.

Betis, meanwhile, remains in 9th place with 17 points.

Returning to the four-man backline that brought it so much success last season, Eibar seized the initiative from the opening whistle.

The hosts took the lead in the 6th minute, when Sergi Enrich sent the ball on toward the Betis goal after a fine cross from Takashi Inui and saw defender Jordi Amat deflect it past goalkeeper Antonio Adan.

Despite a high press by Eibar, the visitors continued trying to play out from the back.

It was not until the 22nd minute that Betis got anywhere near Marko Dmitrovicís net and their pleas for a penalty after the ball touched Charlesí arm in the box were turned aside by the official.

An unmarked Gonzalo Escalante scored from close range in the 26th minute to make it 2-0 for the home side.

Sergio Leon had a chance to pull one back for Betis in the 53rd minute, but faltered against Dmitrovic. A minute later, Charles drew a foul from Aissa Mandi that saw the Betis defender sent off on a straight red card.

Amid protests from Betis that the foul was outside the box, Charles converted from the spot to boost Eibarís lead to 3-0.

Charles scored again in the 71st minute and Enrich added a fifth goal in the 80th right before being substituted and leaving the pitch to an enthusiastic ovation.
