Aritz Aduriz of Athletic Bilbao

David Barral put Levante ahead from close range but a couple of half-time substitutions from Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde altered the flow of the match.

First Mikel Rico fired into the bottom corner to equalise before Aritz Aduriz placed a superb header beyond the reaches of Keylor Navas with six minutes remaining to complete the turnaround.

Getafe remain in sixth after being held 1-1 at home by promoted Elche, Richmond Boakye cancelling out Pedro Leon's first-half strike for the hosts.

Rayo Vallecano moved off the bottom of the table after battling to a 2-0 win over Celta de Vigo.
