Loan Round-Up: Jota helps SD Eibar into last 16 of Copa del Rey

23 December 2016

Attacking midfielder plays 90 minutes as Eibar cruise past Sporting Gijon

SD Eibar are into the last 16 of the Copa del Rey after a 3-1 victory over Sporting Gijon on Wednesday night gave them a 5-2 aggregate win and a place in Round Five. On loan Brentford midfielder Jota played the full 90 minutes as Enrique Garcia Martinez scored in the first minute of both halves, either side of an Adrian Gonzalez strike late in the first period, to wrap up the win. The only blot on an otherwise perfect night for SD was Ruben Sanchez Perez-Cejuela's 89th minute consolation goal for the visitors. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Athletico Madrid, and Sevilla are all potential opponents for José Luis Mendilibar's side in today's last 16 draw.
