Osasuna tops Eibar 3-2 to post first La Liga win

IANS  |  Eibar (Spain) 

Newly-promoted Osasuna beat Eibar 3-2 for their first victory of the La Liga football campaign.

The hosts took the lead in the first minute of the match thanks to Gonzalo Escalante's shot from the edge of the area, which surprised goalkeeper Nauzet Perez here on Monday, reports Efe.

Perez was kept busy by Eibar from then on. He stopped a header by Sergi Enrich a few minutes later and it was the visitors who got the next goal, as Sergio Leon tucked the ball just inside the far post in the 29th minute.

Leon put Osasuna up 2-1 just three minutes later, taking advantage of a miscued shot by the home team's goalkeeper Asier Riesgo. But Eibar equalised just before half-time with a goal by Enrich.

Another mistake, this time by Eibar defender Ander Capo, set up what turned out to be the winning goal, a strike by Roberto Torres in the 57th minute.
