CWhen you can’t win, well it’s a draw. That feeling remained in the atmosphere of Ipurua after the draw between Eibar and Huesca. The armored team faced the visit of the Alto Aragón team with the mission of achieving the sixth consecutive victory: it was clear that ‘the challenge was huge’. However, could not add more than one point in a match in which he met a great rival at a defensive levelwhich conceded very few dangerous situations and, in addition, was fortunate to find itself at 0-1 in a play of very bad fortune for the locals.
The punishment with which Etxeberria’s team left at half-time was excessive, although to tell the truth it did not merit them to go ahead either. The circulations were not fluid, starting from the exit from the back. He accumulated many losses and had a hard time finding superiority in any area of the field.. There was a lack of patience to move Huesca from their position, although it is also true that the positional defense of the Hidalgo team was of a very high level and the three centre-backs with which they defended did not give any options in the lateral centres.
Better in the second half when lateralized Matheus Pereia, which allows Ros Reina to gain height. However, what really changed the scenario was the appearance of Ager Aketxe on the grass The ’10’ gave the team more presence between the lines and, above all, posed a threat thanks to his aggressiveness in trying the shot from a distance. The only two shots between the sticks in the entire game were his and he even had another very clear situation in which the ball went high.
This was the ‘cross’ of own goals…
It was not a brilliant match for Eibar, especially with the ball, but There are positive aspects, such as the ability to not throw in the towel and find a tie thanks to insistence. In fact, victory was not that far away in the final stretch of the match. Without the ball, the gunsmith team was once again at a good level, giving the rival very few options to pass, and although it is still something anecdotal at this point in the season, the tie allows them to place themselves in the zone for the first time in the entire season. of ‘playoffs’, when just a month ago it was in the last position of the classification.
Eibar continues to offer green shoots, chain their sixth consecutive match without knowing defeat and now he is preparing to face a very tough calendar. Zaragoza, Valladolid, Espanyol, Albacete, Oviedo and Levante will be the next rivals of the gunsmith team in a most demanding month, in which they must confirm the good level offered in the last few days to consolidate themselves in the ‘noble zone’ and confirm that they want to fight for everything in a Second that is once again as tight as always .
