A 2-2 draw between Athletic Bilbao and Deportivo La Coruña left the two teams in the bottom half of the table, just a point or two above the relegation spots. Iraola could have put the locals ahead early on when he rattled the woodwork with a long shot, but a few minutes later they took the lead when Barragán headed the ball into his own net after Llorente had failed to control Iraola's cross.

Sergio fired a long shot just wide before the break, but soon after the restart Llorente played on Gabilondo's cross and David López got ahead of everyone to stab the ball in to the net. Ten minutes later though Depor got one back when Riki drove the ball past Aranzubia following a short free kick.

Llorente hit the side netting and David López brought a good save out of Aouate as Athletic looked to restore the two goal cushion, but with a couple of minutes to go Guardado picked up the ball on the right wing and swung in a cross which Taborda headed on past the keeper to level the scores.
