Athletic Bilbao bring an end to their four-game losing streak in La Liga with a 1-1 draw at home to Malaga.
Athletic Bilbao have ended their four-game losing streak in La Liga with a 1-1 draw at home to Malaga.
The hosts were dominant during the opening half, but Xabier Etxeita, Mikel Rico and Aritz Aduriz all squandered chances in front of goal.
Despite those missed opportunities, Bilbao made the breakthrough on 71 minutes when Mikel San Jose got above his marker at the near post to head in from a corner.
However, Malaga earned themselves a share of the spoils just seven minutes later as Javi Guerra converted following good work by Miguel Torres out wide.
Both teams pushed forward late on in search of a winning goal, though neither provided the killer touch when it mattered.
