Barcelona are denied top spot by Las Palmas' 5-1 win over Grenada earlier today, but a 100% record from the opening two games - including one of the toughest away trips in the calendar - is pretty sharp work.
Barcelona butcher one final chance in the last play of the match - Eneko Boveda stretching out a leg to deny Luis Suarez on the line with the Bilbao goalkeeper out of the picture - but it is job, just about, done.Copyright: AFP/Getty Images
Lionel Messi buys a foul to eat up a few more seconds.
Bilbao back on the ball now though.

Play briefly halted for a blow to the head for Iker Muniain. We continue. As does he.
The home fans are on their feet behind the Barcelona goal.
Iker Muniain flops to the floor on the byeline in a tangle with Ivan Rakitic. Everyone in red and white is appealing for a penalty.
The man that matters - in day-glo yellow - says no.
Benat with the chance to deliver a corner into the mixer, but he cannot beat the first man,
Infuriating for the home fans.
Hearts in mouth in the Barcelona bench as Benat curls a free-kick inches wide, the ball ruffling the wrong side of the side-netting on its way behind.
Five to go.
On comes Rafinha for Arda Turan as Barcelona soak up some more seconds with their final change.
Bilbao's Benat goes into to book as he nibbles at Lionel Messi one too many times without getting anywhere near the ball.Copyright: AFP/Getty Images
Luis Suarez with a gilt-edged chance to sign, seal and deliver all three points for Barca.
The Uruguayan breaks clear onto Sergi Roberto's pass, hustles two defenders like a backstreet card sharp but wafts his shot wide as he finally get eyeball to eyeball with the goalkeeper.
A waste.Copyright: AFP/Getty Images
Inaki Williams comes in off his flank, plays the ball into Raul Garcia in the box and follows his pass.
Garcia over-elaborates his return to the winger though and it is a shame for the hosts as he had lost his man.
As Luis Enrique shores things up, so Ernesto Valverde shakes them up.
He whips off Markel Susaeta and throws on Iker Muniain - whose career has stalled a bit in the past few years after emerging as the next big play-making thing in Spain.
Luis Enrique has seen enough. Time to change things up.
Off goes Samuel Umtiti to be replaced by Javier Mascherano in defence, with Denis Suarez withdrawn in favour of former Valencia man Andre Gomes in midfield.
If Barcelona don't win this, they will have themselves rather than Bilbao to blame.
After Arda Turan's eyesore of a miss in the first half, Lionel Messi blazes clear over the top with the Bilbao defence at six and sevens and only the goalkeeper to beat from 15 yards.Copyright: AFP/Getty Images
Saumil Mehta: Quite surprised by exclusion of Rashford & inclusion of Henderson & Walcott in the #EnglandSquad
Andy White: Average manager picks average squad to underwhelm supporters yet again.
Is this game starting to turn?
More Athletic Bilbao pressure.
Inaki Williams turns on the afterburners, bursta into the box, but cannot quite get the telling final touch.

Raul Garcia is immediately involved, tugging a shot just a yard wide from the edge of the box.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen was not getting there.
On comes Raul Garcia for Javier Eraso.
And a second change for the hosts - off comes the largely ineffectual Ander Iturraspe and on comes Vesga.
