Spanish Laliga Table After 10-Man Barcelona Came From Behind To Draw Against Bilbao

In the Laliga this Saturday, 3 of the 4 matches played all ended in a 1-1 or 0-0 draw. The whole 4 games saw less than 6 goals all together and that pales in comparison to the Premier league where 15 goals was scored in today's games alone. Well, that doesn't mean that the games were boring as all 4 games were intense. Barcelona travelled to Bilbao, with Ronald Koeman's side seeking to extend their lead at the top of the table.

30 minutes into the game at Bilbao, Gerard Pique was taken off due to injury and Barcelona had to play on without their influential centre back. The Catalan giants struggle to create any clear cut goalscoring chance against a stubborn Bilbao side on the night. Bilbao on the other hand were penetrating Barcelona's defense but were getting outdone by their lacklustre finishing in front of goal. Inaki Williams was guilty of missing some guilt edges chances in the first half for Bilbao.

In the second half, things got really tasty and Bilbao took the lead through Inigo Martinez, the experienced centre back nodding home to give them the lead. Few minutes after, Memphis Depay scored to draw the game level and hand Barcelona a much need point from the game.

After the game, Barcelona still held on to the top spot in the Laliga table, on 4 points. They were level on point with second placed Malorca with a better goal difference. The rest of the table after today's round of games is below...
