Athletic bounce back with La Liga victory

Inaki Williams of Athletic Club competes for the ball with Rober Pier of UD Levante during the Spanish league match of La Liga between, Athletic Club and UD Levante at San Mames on 7 of 3, 2022 in Bilbao, Spain.

Athletic Bilbao have rebounded from successive defeats with a 3-1 win over last-placed Levante in La Liga.

Mikel Vesga, Inaki Williams and Oier Zarraga scored in the final half hour to give Athletic the home win and move the Basque Country club closer to the European places.

Athletic, sitting in eighth place, were coming off elimination against Valencia in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey and a 4-0 league loss to Barcelona.

We needed this victory to help us recover from the disappointing loss in the Copa," Vesga said.

We will keep fighting for the European places until the end.

Athletic are eight points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid in the final Champions league spot.

Levante were trying to win for the third time in four matches after they earned only one victory in their first 23 league games.

The loss left the Valencia side seven points from safety after 27 matches.
