Striker Iago Aspas scored a late equalizer for Celta Vigo to draw 1-1 at home with Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish league on Friday.

After both sides had hit the crossbar, Bilbao forward Oscar de Marcos looped the ball over goalkeeper Javi Varas in the 43rd minute after being played clear by Aritz Aduriz.

Bilbao continued to dominate the match with Ibai Gomez hitting the goal frame in the 65th and Aduriz firing wide from close range soon afterward.

Aspas leveled against the run of play in the 84th with a long-range shot that landed inside the far post for his 11th goal of the season and first since returning from a four-game ban for head-butting an opponent.

Celta remained in the relegation zone, while Bilbao stayed seven points clear.
