Málaga moved off the bottom of the table after they drew 3-3 against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, a first point of the season probably saving Michel’s job for the time being at least. With ten men and two goals down, the Andalusians appeared to be heading for another defeat before Baysse and Diego Rolán scored twice in the last ten minutes. Earlier in the first half a strike from Rolán had cancelled out an Aduríz penalty, but Williams netted two after the break before Michel’s team produced their come back.
