Eibar has a bad relationship with the goal. Their forwards lack a razor edge and, although they persevere in the face of the rival goal, they cannot quite find their way. Bad business against Getafe, which takes advantage of the opponent's weaknesses, even if it is, like Mendilibar's team, a tenacious, insistent group that tries to crush like a hammer. But neither the blows to the anvil of Getafe, nor the stabbing of the tips were of any use to him. And that was Bryan Gil.
Monchi chose well when he sent the Catalan footballer, raised in Andalusia, to forge a future Sevilla away from Pizjuán. Possibly, the young players get a little scared when they enter the Deba valley and cross the city on their way to signing the contract in Ipurua, between factories on one side and the other. Surely they will get a lump in their throats the first time they travel to Atxabalpe, the training ground, on winding mountain roads, and arrive at the meadow where the team exercises, with the road 15 meters away, without the possibility of having a minimum of privacy

But those things shape the character of good footballers. It happened to David Silva at the time, it can happen to Bryan Gil, who begins to show his delicate left foot, and who in front of Getafe threw his team on his shoulder. He drove Nyom mad, then Damien, and whoever stood in front of him. From his boots came the clearest chance for Eibar in the first half. It combined well with Muto, who is also making the league, and the ball reached Kike García, who finished off against the body of David Soria. The rejection fell again to the forward, who with the defeated goalkeeper crashed his frank shot off the crossbar. The knife was blunt.
Bryan Gil continued to demand the most of the Getafe defenders who, of course, did not shy away from the boy's ambition and deployed, when he could, on the backlash, but the verve of the left-handed winger, of those who already They are not popular, it slowed down the offensive capacity of the visitors, who immediately realized that any mistake could be used by the outside of Eibar to scare. Only Mata, in the 20th minute, was able to unbalance in favor of Bordalás's team, but Cucho Hernández's pass caught him in a bad posture and finished loose. Eibar arrived much more. The last rush of the first part was again led by Gil. Kike García fired and Soria responded with his save
Everything was the same after the break. Bryan Gil was stopped as they could by the Getafe bandmen, but his spirit tempered with the passing of the minutes, and that of the Madrilenians did not increase, despite the entry of Ángel, his usual revulsive. With two classic coaches, the bench movements were unusual for what is fashionable in times of pandemic. Mendilibar made two changes, both offensive; Getafe, only one, also attacking, but the scoreboard did not move, despite the clear chance of Eibar already in the discount. Bryan Gil took a free-kick, Kike García wanted to finish off with a header, but a cross came to Enrich, who also hit the post with a header. In this action, Kike hindered Soria's serve, saw the second yellow card and left his team with ten. There was little left, but Getafe had no ambition. He settled for the tie.
