MADRID (AP) - Athletic Bilbao ended a four-match winless streak with a 4-0 victory over Cadiz in the Spanish league on Monday.
Alex Berenguer scored twice in the first half and Unai Lopez and Inaki Williams added a goal in each half for Athletic.
The win moved the Basque Country club to 10th place in the league standings.
It was the third straight loss for Cadiz, which dropped to 15th and stayed three points from the relegation zone. It is enduring a six-match winless streak in which it has been outscored 19-5.
Athletic coach Marcelino Garcia Toral, who revitalized the club after arriving at the start of the year, rested some regular starters after a tough streak of matches in which it won the Spanish Super Cup and qualified for the Copa del Rey semifinals.
Atletico Madrid has a five-point lead at the top of the Spanish league standings with two games in hand.
