MADRID (AP) - Defender Alejandro Galvez scored early in the second half to give Eibar a 1-0 win over Leganes in the Spanish league on Friday.

Galvez netted the winner after stealing a ball near midfield and making a long run into the area to finish off a cross with a header into the top corner.

It was Eibar’s second win in four matches this season, and the first at home.
