Athletic Bilbao still keeping their seat in that top four spot of current Spanish La Liga standings despite only grabbing a point from their weekend battle against Valencia. The home side made a bright start on that tie as they immediately pour forward in search for an early goal which they eventually grabbed on 23 minutes through Paco Alcacer's effort. Despite strong attempts from Bilbao to equalize as soon as possible, they failed to do it during that first period.
After the break, that weekend battle still looking very tight, but it was Bilbao that managed to get themselves a break through on that half as Aritz Aduriz snatched that precious equalizing goal on 53 minutes. Although those two sides kept on pouring forward vigorously , none of them were able to finish any of their remaining chances in that match and were forced to settle for a rather disappointing 1-1 draw.
