Oghenekaro Etebo scored his first goal for Getafe but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Azulones from losing ground in their quest for Champions League football after they shared the spoils with Eibar at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Saturday.

With so much at stake for the Azulones, Super Eagles midfielder Etebo couldn’t have chosen a better time to break his duck following his loan move from Stoke in January.

 

In what was his sixth start and eighth appearance in LaLiga, the 24-year-old Etebo struck in the 30th minute off an assist from Angel Rodriguez to put Pepe Bordalas’ men in front.

 

TITLE RACE

 

Spanish league leaders Barcelona were held to a goalless draw at Sevilla, leaving the title race wide open with eight games remaining.

 

The result means second-placed Real Madrid could move level on points with Barcelona when they travel to Real Sociedad on Sunday.

 

Lionel Messi's free-kick skimmed the bar in the first half but Barcelona were frustrated by Sevilla's defence.

 

 

Lucas Ocampos also hit the crossbar for the hosts before the break.

 

Sevilla sat deep, often playing with five at the back, and it proved effective as Barcelona saw lots of the ball but failed to create many clear-cut opportunities.
