Sergi Enrich and Borja Baston both scored twice as Eibar thrashed Granada on Monday.

Two goals apiece from Borja Baston and Sergi Enrich helped Eibar to their biggest Primera Division win for 13 months as they beat hapless Granada 5-1.

The home side made it four wins in a row to move back into the top six and in contention for European football after an impressive response when Youssef El-Arabi had briefly made it 2-1 in the second half.

Winger Keko was the star of the show in the opening 45 minutes as he ran the visitors' defence ragged and it was his cross to the far post which picked out the unmarked Takashi Inui to cushion home a left-footed volley in the 35th minute.

Three minutes later the 24-year-old crossed for Enrich to guide a shot inside the far post and the striker could have doubled his tally from another Keko cross only to fire over.

Granada offered slightly more attacking threat after the break and pulled one back in the 65th minute when Eibar defender Mauro Alonso deflected the ball into the path of Adalberto Penaranda who stepped aside to allow El-Arabi to run through and score.

But any hope Granada, just one point above the relegation zone, had of a fightback was extinguished as they conceded a third just three minutes later, the first of three in an 11-minute spell to cap their capitulation.

Enrich fired home from the edge of the area from Borja's pass to take his tally to eight in 13 matches before Borja himself finally got in on the act, blasting home a rebound after goalkeeper Andres Fernandez had parried Keko's angled shot before the on-loan Atletico Madrid striker converted Enrich's cross from close range for his 13th of the campaign.
