Athletic Bilbao's run of three wins in a row came to an end, although they were at least able to save a point against Salzburg thanks to two controversial penalties. The Austrian side went two up at the break, Leonardo setting up Wallner for the first on the half hour mark, and then scoring a second himself after Wallner returned the favour. Midway through the second half though Croatian referee Ivan Bebek awarded a spot kick to the locals after Ander Herrera fell under a challenge from Sekagya, Llorente laying the ghost of recently missed penalties by firing his kick past Gustafsson. And just six minutes later Athletic were given a second penalty after Lindgren handled in the area, the referee ignoring the fact that Amorebieta had pushed the substitute in the back to provoke the hand ball. Lindgren was sent off for a second bookable offence, and Llorente stepped up to score his second of the night, keeping Bielsa's side three points clear of their opponents at the top of the table.
