Athletic Bilbao moved up to sixth in the table pending Sunday's games after beating Levante 1-2 on Saturday evening. Gabilondo put Joaquín Caparrós's side ahead in the ninth minute with a well struck free kick, but Caicedo equalised ten minutes later after running on to Xisco Nadal's pass and getting between Iraizoz and Aitor Ocio to score. The locals dominated after the break, Caicedo heading wide, Nano having a header cleared off the line by Aitor Ocio and Juanlu curling a corner on to the crossbar. But Athletic restored the lead when Javi Martínez headed in Orbaiz's free kick, and they held on against prolonged local pressure after that to tie up the three points.
