Winning in Ipurua against Getafe became SD Eibar's main goal until last weekend. Defeats against Real Madrid and Alavés at home and before Real Sociedad at home dangerously brought the team into the red zone, but the crash against Bordalás deepened a crisis that was an open secret. Perhaps for this reason, Jose Luis Mendilibar appeared after the game visibly worried.

“This defeat hurts us a lot. They always mark us and we don't. We have been insisting to players for some time about the importance of the ball passing between clubs because there can always be a goalkeeper mistake. If he leaves, we have nothing to do, "Zaldibar said after the meeting at a press conference.
"Getafe competed well and there were times when we left the game, although at least today we play until the end," he added.

Also, after the cards seen by Orellana and Diop at the meeting, neither can be in San Mames this weekend. Two sensitive casualties that Eibar will undoubtedly notice in Bilbao: “Before we started we knew what kind of game it would be and yet they kicked us out for a player. We had to play normally, but there could be no red cards and there was. There will be no two players in the next game, there will be another 20 available, ”said Mendilibar.

Eibar are currently in 16th place on the table with 15 points, 2 of the descents marked by Celta de Vigo and 6 of Leganés and Espanyol, penultimate and last. A tricky situation that turns the game against Athletic this weekend and against Granada in the next two season finals almost mid-season.
