It wasn’t meant to be be. The Azulgranas closured the season with a defeat. SD Huesca were unable to edge SD Eibar in an even game in terms of numbers that was determined by Pereira’s left-foot goal from outside the area. Like this, they already look at the next season, with renewed energy and hopes.
Both sides struggled to produce any real clear-cut chances at the start of the clash. Obeng, up top, managed an individual play after 20 minutes that ended with a powerful shot gathered by the keeper. Javi Martinez took his relay, who was confident after having scored against Ponferradina and Lugo, but Luca pulled off a wonderful save to preserve the clean sheet after his brilliant control and finish. The crowd rose again after one more shot from the midfielder, this time assisted by Obeng after a sublime move on the left.
The start of the second half began with a powerful shot from Vilarrasa that hit the post, in what was going to be end-to-end second 45 yet with neither side having caused many uneasy moments for goalkeepers. Both sides tried their luck from outside the area, and that’s exactly how Eibar found the net, with ten minutes from time. Pereira found the prize with a low shot that dodged all the Azulgranas in the area that prevented Andres from seeing well the direction of the ball. Gerard Valentin and Diego Aznar went on the pitch for the stoppage time and although Ziganda’s men pushed hard for a leveller, it wasn’t enough to avoid the final defeat.
