Jose Luis Mendilibar has hit out at his side’s poor defending as they lost to Getafe on Friday evening.
Despite dominating possession, Eibar lost out 2-0 to Getafe ensured that it was two defeats out of two league games.
Mendilibar’s side approached the game having lost on the opening day of the season and in need of a win, but they could do little about Getafe’s excellent counter attacking play, which in the end – proved decisive for the three points.
Angel Rodriguez (pictured below) played a somewhat quiet but starring role for the home side last season and he got his goal-scoring off to the perfect start after 18 minutes, beating Marko Dmitrović.
In total, the visitors had nine shots on Getafe’s goal but they failed to hit the target on any of them – and as the game filtered out – the home side made them pay once more.
Amath produced some fine wing play and found veteran striker Jorge Molina, who tapped home in the 90th minute to seal all three points for Jose Bordalas’ side.
“We have dominated, we played better than them, they had it very complicated to create danger, a long ball, up, we let them control when it fell from the sky, we let them pass, they shoot at goal … we have to improve there.
“We have had an improvement in intensity, from midfield to forward we are fine, but in defense we are sinning, Getafe without danger scored two goals, we have to improve a lot in that sense.”
The result sees Getafe gain their win of the season, whilst Mendilibar’s Eibar have nothing to show in terms of points.
