Sevilla's poor run continued when they lost 2-1 at home to Athletic Bilbao in an earlier kickoff, their fifth successive game without a win.

Andoni Iraola fired Bilbao ahead in the sixth minute at the Sanchez Pizjuan and Spain winger Jesus Navas equalised nine minutes later before a defensive error allowed Oscar de Marcos in to net the winning goal with around 20 minutes left.

Bilbao had to wait until October 2 for their first league win under new coach Marcelo Bielsa but have since gone unbeaten in six, including a 2-2 draw at home to champions Barcelona.

Sevilla stayed in fifth on 18 points and Bilbao climbed to sixth on 17, level with Malaga ahead of their game at Racing Santander on Monday.
