Athletic Bilbao saw their positive home record in La Liga this season tarnished when they suffered a disappointing defeat against Espanyol this past weekend. The home side were keen on maintaining their current top four seat and grabbing all three points on that Sunday clash would made things much easier for them. Things didn't look that good though for Bilbao as after only six minutes of play they found themselves trailing by a goal when Sergio Garcia scored for the away side.
The home side tried hard to get back into that tie and on 56 minutes they did manage it as Gurpegi equalized for them. However, Espanyol continue to cause problems for Bilbao and on 65 minutes, they regained their lead on that tie thanks to an effort from Daniel Colotto, who sealed an important three points for the away side.
