Unbeaten since the start of the season, Bilbao missed the opportunity to take the Spanish elite podium on Tuesday by falling in front of Rayo Vallecano in the 6th round of La Liga.
At home, the Athletic was surprised in the last seconds of the game by a victorious header from Falcao, who had been thrown into battle at the start of the last quarter of an hour (1-2, 90 + 6). Previously, the visitors had been able to open the scoring by Garcia (5e) but the Basques replied on a goal against his camp of the unfortunate Ciss (33e).
Bilbao thus remains confined to sixth place while the Rayo temporarily climbs up to the fourth level, between Valencia and Real Sociedad.
At the bottom of the table, Celta Vigo also gives air by winning on the lawn of Levante thanks to Aspas (66e) and Mendez (85e). Note that Marti missed a penalty for the locals (72e).
