Inui helps Eibar earn La Liga draw


Takashi Inui set up the equalizer as Eibar drew 1-1 away to Getafe on Friday in the Spanish top flight.

Inui, who has three goals to his name in his first season in La Liga, had a low shot from 18 meters cannon off the left-hand post in the 68th minute but helped his team secure a point three minutes from time, picking the ball on the left inside the box and timing his pass perfectly for Borja Gonzalez to score off his back heel.

Emiliano Velazquez opened the scoring for the hosts with a seventh-minute header from a free kick.

Eibar is six games without a win in La Liga but sits eighth on 38 points, while Getafe is 16th with 28 points. Both teams have played 30 games, one more than the rest of the league.
