A routine win against a very poor, and ten man*, Athletic Bilbao side. Soldado opened the scoring with a a rather lucky goal before Dani Parejo converted a penalty after a clear Athletic handball. Gurpegi was sent off in the first half for the visitors, and it was all Geta from there.
It's hard to read too much into today's result as Athletic, even with eleven men, weren't up to much, but three points is never to be sniffed at.
Next up: Copa del Rey action at home to Espanyol on Wednesday.
*actually nine man for the last minute after Ustariz's straight red
