Bebe earns Eibar a point at 10-man Leganes

A second-half strike from Bebe earned Eibar a 1-1 draw away to Leganes, who were hamstrung by the dismissal of goalkeeper Iago Herrerin in the 26th minute of the match.
Miguel Angel Guerrero had given the home side the lead at the Estadio Butarque in the 23rd minute but Herrerin's red card, for a foul on Takashi Inui, changed the complexion of the game and the former Manchester United forward earned Eibar a point.
Herrerin recovered well to make a smart stop from Japanese midfielder Inui in the 12th minute, before the home side forged ahead 11 minutes later.
Eibar full-back Antonio Luna gave the ball away to Guerrero, who made no mistake and finished well past Yoel in the Eibar goal.
Herrerin then received his marching orders for up-ending Inui, with Diego Barrios being brought on for Ruben Perez just before the half-hour mark.
Inui fired over the top in the 37th minute after Barrios had punched away a cross into the box, before Yoel held on well to keep out a Guerrero header three minutes before the break.
Gonzalo Escalante was the first to go close for Eibar in the second period as his 53rd-minute strike fizzed wide of Barrios' goal and the Argentinian then headed a chance just over on the hour mark as the visitors sought an equaliser.
The leveller finally came with 15 minutes to go, as Bebe's deflected strike gave Barrios no chance.
Luciano was brought on for Guerrero in the 84th minute and thought he was going to have the opportunity to win it as he raced clear on goal in the 89th minute, only for the referee to whistle for offside.
