Almeria’s struggle to avoid La Liga relegation took another blow with a 3-1 defeat at home to Athletic Bilbao on Monday.

Hosts Almeria took the lead through Pablo Piatti six minutes into the match at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterreneos.

The diminutive Argentine forward broke through the Bilbao defence before beating goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz to make it 1-0.

Teenage winger Iker Muniain levelled for the visitors on 29 minutes, netting a rebound after Almeria goalkeeper Diego Alves failed to hold a shot.

And seven minutes into the second half, forward Gaizka Toquero beat Alves with a left-foot shot to make it 2-1 to Bilbao.

Pablo Orbaiz made it 3-1 on the hour mark, completing the turnaround for the away side by catching Alves out with a long-range effort from close to the halfway line.

The win sees Bilbao regain fifth place from Sevilla on goal difference.

Almeria are now three points adrift at the bottom of the table and four points off safety.
