Half-Time Report: Atletico Madrid being held by Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid are all square at the interval after Diego Costa cancels out Iker Muniain's earlier goal.

Atletico Madrid have come from behind to level the La Liga contest against Athletic Bilbao at half time.

Bilbao took the lead with just six minutes on the clock through Iker Muniain, who lifted his effort over the onrushing Thibaut Courtois after being played in by Mikel San Jose.

Diego Costa almost levelled the match shortly after, but he was unable to beat Gorka Iraizoz when in a one-on-one situation, with the Lions' keeper making a fine save.

Costa did find a way past Iraizoz on 22 minutes, however, collecting a loose pass from Ander Iturraspe and finishing into the bottom corner.

It could have been even better for Atletico ahead of the interval when Filipe Luis combined with Costa before finding Raul Garcia at the back post, but he put his effort high and wide.
