Athletic Club carried on their good run of form at home with a 1-0 win over FC Barcelona. A solitary goal from Iker Muniain in the second half gave the home side three points, causing Barça their first defeat in this season's Liga BBVA.

It was a high-voltage match at the Estadio San Mamés between the Bilbao side and the league leaders. Athletic, who remain undefeated at home, tested out a Barcelona side badly affected by injury.

After an intense first half that finished goalless, both sides looked for a winning goal after the break. Gaizka Toquero went close with two headers for the home side, whilst Neymar sent a free kick just wide. With 20 minutes left on the clock Muniain scored the game's only goal after good play down the right from Markel Susaeta.
