Levante consolidated sixth spot after coming from a goal down to beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 on Saturday afternoon. Aduríz got on the end of a Susaeta cross to head the opener for the visitors in only the sixth minute, but Iraizoz had to make a first class save from Roger before Lell picked up El Zhar's pass and ran on to equalise midway through the first half. With half time approaching Laporte got himself sent off for bringing down Roger as he advanced on goal, and although Iraizoz kept out Michel's free kick, Ballesteros and Roger played the ball back in for Iborra to head past the keeper. And after the break Iraizoz had to make another good stop from Roger before El Zhar beat him for a third time, controlling Michel's pass and firing a low shot inside the near post from outside of the area.
