Fernando Llorente and Gaizka Toquero were on target to fire Athletic Bilbao to a 2-0 victory over Hapoel Kiryat Shmona in their postponed Europa League clash at Kiryat Eli'ezer.

The original game was scheduled to be played last week but was cancelled due to security concerns in Israel.

Victory for the Spanish side lifted them off the foot of Group I, ahead of their opponents on the night, but neither side harbour hopes of progressing from the pool stage of the tournament.

Llorente broke the deadlock on 34 minutes, pouncing after Toquero's effort from a corner was blocked.

Toquero then got his name on the scoresheet with 14 minutes remaining, the Spanish forward slotting home after a free-kick fell kindly for him.
