Rayo Vallecano rallies to beat Eibar 2-1 in Spanish league

MADRID (AP) -- Goals by Alberto Bueno and Manucho helped Rayo Vallecano rally to beat Eibar 2-1 away on Friday in the Spanish league.

The match started badly for Rayo when its goalkeeper Cristian Alvarez brought down Federico Piovaccari in the area and Mikel Arrubarrena converted the penalty in the 35th minute.

But Eibar's lead was short-lived as Bueno equalized five minutes later when he athletically headed home Alberto "Tito" Roman's cross.

Two minutes later Angola striker Manucho added another for Rayo.

The match grew bad tempered and Eibar defender Raul Navas was sent off in the fifth minute of added time.

Rayo rose two places to provisional ninth in the standings on 38 poinst while Eibar is 14th on 27th.
