Fourth placed Sevilla were unexpectedly held to a 0-0 draw by Eibar in the Sánchez Pizjuán stadium on Sunday evening. The Basques have been one of the revelation sides of the league this year, and Capa almost caught out Beto with an angled shot in the opening minutes. Irureta had to save from Banega and Diogo shot wide at the other end, but Beto had to keep out Boateng again as honours were shared in the first half. The Andalusians dominated play after the interval though, Krychowiak having a shot blocked and Irureta saving well from Gameiro, and M’bia got the ball in the net only for the strike to be ruled out as the shot went under the legs of Bacca, who was standing in an offside position. Substitute Denis Suárez also fired a couple of shots just wide, and M’bia headed another effort past the post, but in the end there was no way past a well ordered defence. Eibar finished the day in a respectable ninth place, still the highest ranked Basque team in the league. The match was the last that Sevilla will play this year, as their fixture next week against Real Madrid has been put back to February to allow Ancelotti’s side to take part in the Club World Cup.
