Eibar grabs late equalizer against Getafe in Spain
MADRID (AP) — Borja Baston scored late to give Eibar a point in a 1-1 draw at Getafe in the Spanish league on Friday.
Getafe took an early lead when defender Emiliano Velazquez headed in a free kick by Pablo Sarabia in the seventh minute.
Getafe, which is just above the relegation zone, held on until the 87th minute when Baston tapped in Japan midfielder Takashi Inui’s pinpoint pass.
Inui had charged up the left flank, entered the penalty area and delivered a perfect ball for Baston to push into the net with his heel.
Eibar is provisionally eighth on 38 points, 10 more than Getafe.
Barcelona leads the standings on 75 points.
