Eibar 3-2 Sevilla: Cote scores winner to complete Eibar comeback as Sevilla surrender two-goal lead

  • Cote scored the winner in 82nd minute as Eibar came back to beat Sevilla 3-2 
  • Lucas Ocampos and Oliver Torres were both on the scoresheet for the visitors

Sevilla threw away a two-goal lead in the second half to lose 3-2 away to Eibar on Thursday, missing out on the chance to go second in La Liga.

Argentine winger Lucas Ocampos put Julen Lopetegui’s side ahead in the 11th minute by firing through the legs of goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic and Spaniard Oliver Torres gave them a two-goal cushion by nudging the ball home in the 33rd.

Eibar pulled themselves back into contention midway through the second half with a penalty from Chilean winger Fabian Orellana and turned the game on its head with two strikes in the space of five minutes.
