Both sides continued their unbeaten start to the LaLiga season while Athletic Club notched their fourth clean sheet in five contests – their only goal allowed coming in last month’s 1-1 draw at Barcelona.

Antoine Griezmann got the start for the hosts and nearly converted 18 minutes into the contest but his poor first touch caused him to only get a weak shot off.

After a largely lifeless first half, Joaquin Correa nearly notched the opener early in the second stanza but put his effort just wide.

Iñaki Williams should have made it 1-0 for Athletic just a few minutes later but couldn’t take advantage of a José Giménez error, sliding his effort past the post.

Less than 20 minutes after coming on, João Félix was harshly shown a yellow card and then immediately sent off after briefly protesting the decision.

Atlético will travel to face Getafe on Tuesday while Athletic will host Radamel Falcao and Rayo Vallecano that same evening.
