Eibar wins 3-1 at 10-man Granada in Spanish league opener


GRANADA, Spain — Eibar won 3-1 at 10-man Granada on Monday to make a promising start to the modest Basque club's second season in the Spanish League.

Midfielder Adrian Gonzalez opened the scoring in the 22nd minute at Los Carmenes Stadium from Antonio Luna's pass, and the left back broke free to easily assist Gonzalo Escalante in the 35th.

Granada pulled one back when substitute Isaac Success set up Ruben Rochina in the 50th, only for the hosts' comeback to be derailed by Salva Ruiz's direct red card for a studs-first challenge of Dani Garcia six minutes later.

Mikel Arruabarrena made sure coach Jose Mendilibar enjoyed a winning debut in his second stint with Eibar by scoring one minute after being introduced in the 66th.
