Málaga are level with Mallorca in joint second spot after a dull 0-0 draw at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday evening. Both teams had played in European competitions midweek, and they already appeared tired after their efforts. Susaeta went close a couple of times in the first half, and either side of half time Jesús Gámez, Isco and Eliseu all tested keeper Raúl Fernández, who was standing in for the injured Iraizoz. With ten minutes to go Caballero kept out Susaeta again, but even the introduction of Fernando Llorente couldn't change things, and in the end both coaches settled for a point.
