Hapoel Kiryat Shmona FC withstood Fernando Llorente and a barrage of second-half pressure to claim a surprise 1-1 draw with last season's UEFA Europa League runners-up Athletic Club.

The Israeli champions were on the back foot throughout in Bilbao but took the lead through Adrian Rochet in their first forward foray on 14 minutes. Markel Susaeta equalised before the interval and half-time substitute Llorente looked set to tip the scales in their favour as he bossed the remainder of the game, but ultimately without reward as Kiryat Shmona held on.
