Sevilla drop two places to fourth after they were beaten 1-0 by Athletic Bilbao in the early kick-off on Saturday. Sergio Rico had to save from Susaeta early on, and Kepa replied with stops from Ben Yedder and Carole, but with two minutes to go to the break Mikel Vesga got what was to prove the only goal with a lob over the visiting keeper following a long throw-in. Vesga hit the post again after the interval, but the Basque side held off some late attacks by the Andalusians for a win which takes them back up to the top half of the table.
