Barcelona has missed a chance to go to the top of the Spanish Primera Liga after losing 2-1 at home to Athletic Bilbao. With league leaders Deportivo La Coruna and Alaves not playing, Barcelona had the chance to go top of the table at least for 24 hours. But Bilbao took an unlikely 1-0 lead after ten minutes with the first half seeing Barcelona squander some golden chances. Although Barcelona managed to equalize, the visitors soon recovered, regaining their lead in spectacular fashion nine minutes from time. Bilabao gained a surprise 2-1 win -- their fifth victory from seven away matches this season.
