LaLiga report: Atletico Madrid 3 Athletic Bilbao 2

Athletic Bilbao were on their way to just a second LaLiga win of the season before two late Atletico Madrid goals denied them.

Diego Godin scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner as Atletico Madrid came from behind to secure a 3-2 LaLiga win over Athletic Bilbao at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday.

Diego Simeone’s men fell well short of the standards set in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund and were fortunate to escape with three points courtesy of some late heroics against a side who have won just once in the league this season.

Inaki Williams was the star of the show for the visitors, putting his side ahead with a simple tap-in after 36 minutes and then slotting home a second just after Thomas Partey had pulled Atleti level in the second half.

A surprise victory looked within their grasp, but Rodrigo’s header 10 minutes from time and Godin’s late intervention – awarded after a VAR review for possible offside – moved Simeone’s side up to second, a point behind leaders Barcelona.
