Athletic Bilbao 1-3 Levante: Visitors near La Liga salvation with impressive win

Levante produced a superb result at San Mames to beat Athletic Bilbao and all-but ensure their La Liga safety. The visitors had all the pressure on their shoulders before kick off, knowing that Clarence Seedorf’s slow improving Deportivo La Coruna were getting some points on the board.
