Must Read

Raul Garcia’s brace helped Athletic Bilbao come from behind to beat Getafe 5-1 in La Liga on Monday night.

Getafe stunned their hosts when they took the lead in the opening minute as Marc Cucurella met Carles Alena’s cross to head home.

Bilbao thought they had a penalty moments later when Inaki Williams went down under a challenge from goalkeeper Ruben Yanez, only for VAR to overturn the decision, but they had only to wait for Garcia’s 12th-minute equaliser.

Getafe blew a chance to regain the lead when Jaime Mata’s 29th-minute penalty was saved, and the hosts made them pay in the second half.

Yeray Alvarez headed them in front in the 50th minute and Garcia got his second just after the hour mark before goals from Alex Berenguer and Oscar De Marcos added late gloss to the scoreline.

Bilbao move to 24 points and ninth on the ladder, four places but just one point above Getafe.

Atletico Madrid are top on 47 points, seven clear of Real Madrid and with a game in hand on their city rivals.
