BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Sevilla has been held to 1-1 at home by Athletic Bilbao in the first game since Jorge Sampaoli returned as its coach. Óliver Torres put Sevilla ahead early but Bilbao bossed the second half as Sampaoli’s team faded. Sevilla has only one win in 11 games overall and remains in 17th place in the Spanish league. Ángel Correa scored twice and Jan Oblak has made a pair of big saves to lead Atlético Madrid’s 2-1 home win over Girona. Correa scored in the fifth and 48th minutes before Rodrigo Riquelme pulled one back. Oblak made two diving saves to keep long-range shots by Aleix García out of his net.
