Football really does teach you to be humble. Not long ago fans had already started to celebrate the impending treble, and now, all of that has crash-landed. This being the final league game, Ernesto Valverde really needs to produce a dominating win, if he is not to be fired, despite almost delivering two domestic doubles in two years.
Eibar fought well for a European spot, but the competition was incredibly tough in the Spanish league this season. The team may have come up short, but they really will be back next year, primed to go toe-to-toe with some of the biggest clubs in the world. It was the road games that let them down, which will need to be addressed in the next edition of the competition.
