Eibar 1-2 Real Valladolid: Stoppage time goals see visitors snatch the points

Real Valladolid scored two goals in stoppage time to snatch all three points against Eibar on Sunday.

Once again, La Liga proves to be competely unpredictable but entertaining as Valladolid sprung a late surprise at the Ipurua.

Eibar have been good in large parts this term and went into the game having picked up points from 19 of their 28 league games, whilst Valladolid have struggled and arrived looking over their shoulders at the bottom placed sides.

As expected the hosts had more of the possession, controlling 62% of the ball throughout the 90 minutes and they did test Valladolid’s goal but sadly their poor finishing cost them as they only managed to get three of their 15 attempts on target.

One of those on target was that of Fabian Orellana, who opened the scoring for Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side in the 54th minute and such was the lack of attacking threat from the away side that most expected Eibar to go on and win.

However, the 91st minute saw drama as Daniele Verde scored from the penalty, giving the home crowd a stunned look on their faces and that shock became even more so when Sergi Guardiola scored with virtually the last kick of the game.
