Athletic Bilbao’s victory against Atletico Madrid has made the La Liga title race more competitive and open.

Atletico Madrid had poor first half against a Bilbao side while a late goal from Inigo Martinez’s gave his team the win.

Other goals that were scored came from Alex Berenguer, who scored early for the hosts but Stefan Savic looked to have rescued a point until Martinez struck.

With Sevilla a point further back in fourth, Atletico remain two points above both Real Madrid and Barcelona.

After this development, But Barca have an advantage of a game in hand and can go top by beating Granada on Thursday.

Athletic Bilbao had lost two Copa del Rey finals – the delayed 2020 showpiece to Real Sociedad and the 2021 edition to Barca – this month.

 Martinez scored a set-piece header to decide the winner, when it looked like Atletico had come back stronger after the break, Marcos Llorente drilling just wide from 20 yards before Savic glanced home a corner to equalize.
