Deportivo La Coruna wins 1-0 at Eibar for 1st victory of season in Spanish league


EIBAR, Spain — Deportivo La Coruna scored early and hung on for a 1-0 win at Eibar on Monday, earning the promoted side its first win of the Spanish league season.

Midfielder Juan Rodriguez scored what proved to be Deportivo's winner in the 13th minute when a poor clearance by Eibar defender Eneko Boveda fell to him in the area.

After failing to threaten in the first half, Eibar substitute Dani Nieto had the hosts' best chances with back-to-back solo efforts in the 58th and 59th. But goalkeeper German Lux parried his first shot over the bar before Nieto hit the side netting on a second try.

Deportivo defended well the rest of the way.

Eibar, playing its first season in Spain's topflight, has lost two straight after winning its first-division debut.
