Athletic Bilbao recovered from two goals down to rescue a 2-2 draw at Real Valladolid in La Liga on Friday as they failed to build convincingly on last week's 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid.
Javi Guerra nodded the home side in front in the eighth minute of an entertaining match between the two mid-table teams at Valladolid's rain-lashed Jose Zorrilla stadium.
Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz shot against the frame of the goal in the 15th minute but moments later Valladolid were 2-0 ahead when Alberto Bueno turned in a Daniel Larsson centre.
Oscar de Marcos began Bilbao's fightback in the 22nd when he volleyed Markel Susaeta's cross in off a post and Susaeta tapped in the equaliser at a corner five minutes after the break.
Bilbao have failed to reproduce the form that took them to the final of the Europa League and King's Cup last season.
