Celta failed to get out of the bottom three after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Athletic Bilbao in this week's Friday night match. The Basques themselves still needed points to endure their safety for another season, and San José headed a corner against the crossbar as they got off to a strong start. Alex López also headed against the woodwork as the locals came back, but with three minutes to go to the break Iturraspe and Aduríz combined to set up De Marcos for the opener. The visitors came close to increasing their lead after the interval, Javi Varas making the save of the night from an Aduríz header, Ibai Gómez crashing a shot against the bar and Aduríz missing the easiest of chances after Muniain left him free in front of goal. However with seven minutes to go Iago Aspas picked up a through ball by Orellana to hold off two defenders and fire an angled shot past Iraizoz to level the match. Not the result either side wanted, but at least it was another point each in their fight for survival.
