Eibar pulls clear

Eibar practically sealed its top-flight status by beating relegated Espanyol 2-0 away yesterday in La Liga. Edu Exposito scored both goals to earn Eibar its first win in four matches, giving it the lead by converting a penalty in the 25th minute. The visitors won a second penalty soon after and Exposito’s effort was saved by Espanyol keeper Diego Lopez but the midfielder pounced on the rebound to double his side’s advantage in the 36th. The victory took Eibar up to 15th in the standings on 39 points and it will be guaranteed survival if Real Mallorca, which occupies the final spot in the relegation zone on 32, loses at fourth-placed Sevilla later. Espanyol, relegated last Wednesday, stayed rooted to the bottom of the table on 24 points after losing a seventh successive game.
