first_imgTwo months have passed since Eibar’s last victory in the league this season (2019-2020), which has been stopped for almost seven weeks by the coronavirus.On Saturday, February 29, the First Division team from Gipuzkoa beat Levante in Ipurua (3-0), which has never won at the Eibar stadium. Although this time the Valencian team had several opportunities to get ahead on the scoreboard, they did not and lost in a duel on Matchday 26.Those trained by José Luis Mendilibar were more successful before the goal and won with two goals from Charles and another from Orellana, which allowed them to break a streak of 4 games without winning and reach 27 points.The score is the same as Eibar now looks, since the Eibar team then lost twice in a row at Ipurua – they played three games in a row at home – against Mallorca (1-2) on Saturday in a match on matchday 27, and Real Sociedad (1-2) on Tuesday, March 10.Eibar-Real Sociedad was the first football game in history played behind closed doors in Spain by COVID-19. Gipuzkoa’s First Division derby was played in Ipurua three weeks after it was postponed due to air pollution due to a fire at a landfill in Zaldibar. It was a match on Matchday 24 that should have been played on February 16, but in the end it was played on March 10 without spectators in the stands.Aitor saved Charles a penaltyAt Eibar-Levante the most positive thing for the Valencians was the performance of their goalkeeper, Aitor Fernández, who was the best in the match. The Levante goalkeeper from Gipuzkoa made numerous interventions – he is the one who makes the most stops in Primera – and stopped a penalty kick taken badly by Charles Dias.Those led by Paco López, who came from winning the Real Madrid leader in Ciutat de Valencia, missed their chances and returned to show that they continue to receive many goals as visitors.Charles overtook the locals in the 27th minute by touching a ball that had been headed by Orellana, coming to rest with 1-0. As soon as the second half started, Charles himself put the second goal (m. 47) on the pass from Sergi Enrich. Although the Spanish-Brazilian striker was able to make his third goal from the fateful point, Aitor stopped the penalty that allowed his team to continue with hopes. But already in the end, Orellana made the final 3-0 pass by Sergi Enrich. Yoel played for Eibar; Arbilla, Paulo Oliveira, Pedro Bigas, José Angel ‘Cote’; Pedro León (De Blasis, m. 83), Pape Diop, Cristóforo, Orellana; Charles (Escalante, m. 77) and Sergi Enrich (Kike García, m. 87).Levante lined up Aitor Fernández; Jorge Miramón, Postigo, Bruno González, Toño García; Morales, Vukcevic (Sergio León, m. 66), Campaña, Bardhi; Roger and Borja Mayoral (Melero, m. 65).Igor Jauregi’s birthdayThe 29th was also the birthday of Igor Jauregi, an Eibar psychologist, who is helping the Barça players who are confined at home by the coronavirus to stay mentally strong at a distance.The ex-footballer of Eibar and Real Sociedad, who has turned 46 years old, played for the Barça team in two different periods (seasons 1997-1998 and 2001-2002). Igor Jauregi (Tolosa, 1974) arrived in Ipurua in 1997, at the age of 23, and made his debut in the Second Division with Periko Alonso as coach.The good role of the midfielder from Toulouse in Ipurua in the 1997-1998 campaign allowed him to make the leap to Real Sociedad, where he enjoyed the First Division for 9 years (from 1998-1999 to 2006-2007), when he had to withdraw due to physical problems after having played 135 matches in the highest category. During his career, Jauregi demonstrated his versatility by converting himself into central defense, which allowed him to play regularly, either as a midfielder or behind.In the midst of his realistic journey, he returned on loan to Eibar in the 2001-2002 season to recover from an injury. Again, his arrival in Ipurua helped him greatly. His good role in the 12 league games he played with the Barça team trained by Blas Ziarreta allowed him to return to Real Sociedad in the second round in the same 2001-2002 campaign.His last league game for Barça – in total he played 50 – was unforgettable, Eibar-Levante (7-0) in Ipurua on Wednesday November 7, 2001, as it is the biggest win scored by Eibarres in all its history in Second division.In that historic last duel with Eibar, Igor Jauregi played central defense with Blas Ziarreta, in which another player loaned by Real Sociedad, José Félix Guerrero (brother of Julen Guerrero), scored 3 goals, while Egoitz Sukia scored 2 goals. , and one was achieved by Jorge Sánchez and Gaizka Garitano (current coach of Athletic Club), who opened the scoring in the first minute. Also contributing to the win were Manolo Almunia (the 2001-2002 season ended with the Zamora trophy being awarded as the goalkeeper with the fewest goals scored in Second A), Luis Prieto, Jon Solaun (both signed later by Athletic Club), and Aitor Aldeondo, who it was also on loan from Real (as was Peiremans, which did not premiere at Eibar).last_img
