Athletic Bilbao moved to within a point of the UEFA spots with a 1-3 win over Mallorca. Yeste started things off with a quickly taken free kick which caught Leo Franco napping in the eighteenth minute, but the home side equalised before the interval when the locals were awarded a free kick after Javi González tried to fool Delibasic into giving him the ball by shouting "leave it". Bruggink fired in a low kick from left of goal which deflected into the net off the foot of Gurpegui, who got a clip around the ears from angry keeper Aranzubia for his pains.
Etxeberría restored the lead though in the second half, heading in on the far post after Ezquerro headed back a cross, and Aranzubia kept out Delibasic twice as the Islanders came looking for the equaliser. Referee Ramírez Domínguez disallowed a goal by Urzaiz when he should have played the advantage rule, but Athletic got a third later on when Leo Franco and Lussenhoff bundled Del Horno's cross into their own net five minutes from time.
