Getafe CF 0-1 Athletic Bilbao highlights: Athletic Bilbao holding out their fifth place spot in current Spanish La Liga standings after their recent success in defeating home team Getage on Monday.
Eager to maintain their top five seat from their rivals, Bilbao set off on an attacking shape since kick off and that positive approach earned an immediate result when Aymeric Laporte puts them in front after finishing an assist by Sussaseta after just eight minutes of play. That early strike triggered a much more interesting situation with Getafe eager to get an equalizing goal.
After the break, both sides continue to push forward in search for goals, but they failed that mission as that game ended in a 1-0 victory for Bilbao as they hold on to that slender lead up till the final whistle was blown. That win temporarily stopped Getafe's ambition in stealing that top five seat from their opponent, though the home side still sitting sixth in current standings.
