Derek Boateng stayed on the bench for newly-promoted Eibar who began their Spanish La Liga with shock 1-0 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.

The Ghana international signed for the Basque-side early this week but lacked the requisite match-fitness to earn game time.

Eibar coach Gaizka Garitano’s side needed a Javi Lara goal in the 45th minute at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua for the win.
