Elche 0 Athletico Bilbao 0
A creditable 0-0 draw for Elche on Tuesday night as they entertained 4th placed Athletico Bilbao at the Martinez Valero, one more point toward their target for survival.
The home side looked dangerous early on when Garry Rodrigues saw his effort blocked just three minutes into the match, while Coro forced a save with a long-range strike.
The visitors’ first chance fell to Ander, who tried to curl the ball in from a tight angle, but was denied by Manuel Yague.
Oscar de Marcos and Iker Muaniain both had further opportunities for Bilbao, but neither side was able to take the lead before the half-time whistle.
After a quiet spell with few real chances for either side, Domingo Cisma went close with a header for Elche inside the final 10 minutes, but Gorka Iraizoz in the away goal made the save.
The home side did not give up, as Sergio Pelegrin had one final attempt in stoppage time, but shot from corner went just wide.
