  • Kevin Gameiro (71')

Eibar 1-1 Sevilla FC

Sevilla came from behind to salvage a point at Eibar but their unconvincing away form should concern them heading into next week's Champions League visit to Manchester City.
Borja Baston gave in-form Eibar an early lead but the visitors improved in the second half and drew level through Kevin Gameiro's close-range effort on 71 minutes.
The Andalusians remain in mid-table and are still searching for their first away win of the season in all competitions, while Eibar missed out on an opportunity to cement their place in the top six.
Sevilla went the international week on back-to-back league wins over Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano but ran into familiar problems on a rare sunny afternoon in the Basque country and found themselves overpowered early on by Jose Luis Mendilibar's energetic side, who took the lead in the eighth minute.
Baston negotiated his way through a crowded Sevilla box to get on the end of Saul Berjon's cross and nod the ball in off the far post, scoring his fifth goal in four games.
Sevilla could only muster one real effort in the first half, a stinging shot from Jose Antonio Reyes which was well saved by Eibar goalkeeper Asier Riesgo.
Unai Emery brought on Yevhen Konoplyanka at the start of the second half and his side instantly improved as a result, playing with more purpose and strength.
The Ukraine forward had a strong penalty appeal turned down shortly after coming on as he was felled by Ivan Ramis, while Gameiro failed to make the most of a cut-back from Vitolo.
But the Frenchman's next opportunity was impossible to miss. Vicente Iborra drove forward down the right and sent in a deep cross along the goalline, and Gameiro arrived to help the ball into the net.
