MADRID (AP) - Eibar stayed in contention for European competition next season by routing struggling Granada 4-0 for its third in a row in the Spanish league on Monday.

Adrian Gonzalez and Sergi Enrich each scored in the first half, and Pedro Leon and Ivan Ramis added on in the second to leave the hosts in seventh place in the 20-team standings.

The top three teams automatically advance to the group stage of the Champions League, and the fourth-place club goes through a playoff. The teams in fifth and sixth places secure a berth in the Europa League.

Eibar also won at Valencia 4-0 in the previous round.

Granada remained second-to-last in the league with its third loss in four matches.
