First-half goals from Dani Garcia and Raul Albentosa earned Eibar a 2-0 win at Elche in La Liga on Friday night.

The newly-promoted visitors, playing in the top flight for the first time this season, got off to a flying start when Garcia's low shot crept in after just three minutes.

Albentosa's header shortly before the break doubled the lead as Eibar made it two wins from their opening four league games.

The away side got off to an ideal start when Garcia fired a shot inside the near post from the left channel from 25 yards, the ball going in off the upright.

Garcia almost got a second, but his header was saved by Przemyslaw Tyton.

At the other end Ferran Corominas fired wide from deep inside the area.

Elche were finally starting to get into the game and Faycal Fajr saw his shot tipped around a post by Jon Irazusta.

They were undone three minutes before half-time, though, when Albentosa, playing against the side with whom he started his career, headed home a Saul Berjon corner.

The hosts came out fighting after the break and Fajr had a corner tipped over by Irazusta before Jonathas headed the resulting delivery wide at the near post.

Damian Suarez then forced another save from the busy Irazusta.

And the Eibar goalkeeper was alert again two minutes from time to turn a Fajr shot from long range around a post as his side sealed the win.
