Deportivo La Coruna beats Eibar 2-0 in the Spanish league

MADRID (AP) -- Two bad defensive errors by Eibar gifted a 2-0 win to Deportivo La Coruna in the Spanish league on Friday.

Lucas Perez scored his third goal of the season after Eibar goalkeeper Xabi Irureta raced forward to the edge of the penalty area and parried Oriol Riera's shot straight to him in the 52nd minute.

Ivan "Cavaleiro" Neves reacted quickly and sprinted forward to follow Borja Ekiza's lazy backpass and skilfully stole the ball off Irureta for his third league goal in the 80th.

Deportivo rises to provisional 11th-place on 24 points while Eibar stays eighth on 27.

Real Madrid is top on 54 points after 22 rounds ahead of its derby clash with Atletico Madrid on Saturday. Barcelona is second on 50 before traveling to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
