Spanish La Liga

Eibar 1-1 Valencia

Gary Neville was warned by the referee for showing anger on the touchline

Gary Neville drew his first La Liga game in charge of Valencia as they came from behind with 10 men at Eibar.

The hosts led before half-time when Sergi Enrich scored from close range.

Valencia had Lucas Orban harshly sent off in the 63rd minute for an aerial challenge on Dani Garcia, with Jaume Domenech saving the penalty.

Despite not managing a shot on target, Valencia equalised late on through David Junca's own goal, before Eibar's Ivan Ramis was dismissed.

Valencia remain ninth in the table, above their opponents on goal difference.

Neville, the former Manchester United defender and current England coach who replaced Nuno Espirito Santo this month, lost his first game 2-0 to Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday.

He looked angry throughout a poor first-half performance against Eibar, and was warned by the referee for his behaviour on the touchline.

Valencia's passing repeatedly let them down and a long-range shot from Andre Gomes that flew over the crossbar was their only attempt before they fell behind.

Ander Capa burst down the right flank with little resistance and crossed for Enrich, who bundled home.

Domenech saved brilliantly to keep out Berjon Perez's penalty after Orban fouled Garcia.

Valencia equalised when a smart turn and pass by former Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo, a 76th-minute substitute, forced Junca to deflect the ball clumsily into his own net.

Ramis was shown a red card in stoppage time for bringing down Paco Alcacer as he broke clear, with the striker firing the free-kick inches wide.
