Fourth placed Atlético Madrid lost ground on the leaders after a 2-2 draw at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday afternoon. Koke put the visitors in front in the third minute with a centre into the penalty area which bounced past everyone in to the net, Griezmann’s dummy putting off Iraizoz. With half time approaching however Lekue fired home the equalizer after Williams played on a pass from de Marcos, and some ten minutes in to the second half De Marcos headed the Basque side in to the lead after Raúl García crossed in from the right. Both keepers had saves to make after that, but with ten minutes to go Griezmann picked up a pass from Fernando Torres to level the scores with a low shot which squeezed past Iraizoz and in off the post.
