Ath Bilbao leave it late in La Liga win

A late Mikel San Jose volley has given Athletic Bilbao a 2-1 La Liga win over Celta Vigo.

Athletic Bilbao have beaten Celta Vigo 2-1 with a goal in the third minute of injury time at San Mames.

Athletic had trailed to Lago Aspas' opener until Aritz Aduriz equalised for them from the penalty spot after Celta defender Facundo Rongcaglia conceded a spot-kick and got himself sent off in the process.

Celta had dominated for long periods and deserved more than just a point but they ended up with nothing when Mikel San Jose volleyed in Inaki Williams' header with the last kick.

San Jose said: "Football is unpredictable and this team never gives in. These three points are very important for us against a big rival who are in the Europa League with us.

"They had the chances to put the game out of our reach but they were not able to take them and we took advantage."
