Athletic Bilbao beaten 4-2 at Paris Saint-Germain

Already-qualified Athletic Bilbao went down 4-2 to Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes in their final Europa League Group F game after boss Marcelo Bielsa fielded a team comprising mainly of youngsters. However, despite victory for the big-spending French club, who had invested €85m in players during the summer, they crashed out of the competition following Salzburg’s 3-2 away win at Slovan Bratislava.

The Basques got off to a dream start when defender Jon Aurtenetxe headed home from a corner with just three minutes on the clock, but PSG had turned the scoreline around by the break with goals from €42m man Javier Pastore on 21 minutes and Mathieu Bodmer just before half-time. David L
