MADRID, Spain -- Aritz Aduriz's second-half header gave 10-man Athletic Bilbao a 1-0 win against Granada in the Spanish league on Monday.

A corner delivered by Ibai Gomez to the far post was headed in by Aduriz in the 67th minute.

Athletic forward Markel Susaeta was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for a clumsy tackle from behind on Manuel "Nolito" Agudo in the 80th minute.

Granada came close to equalizing in injury time but Yacine Brahimi's right-footed shot hit the post.

Athletic is 13th in the standings on 35 points after 29 games, while Granada is 16th on 28 points. Barcelona leads on 75 points, 13 more than second-place Real Madrid.

Real Betis hosts Getafe in a late match.
