Turks Trabzonspor stunned Bilbao with two goals in rapid succession in the first half.
Gokdeniz Karadeniz sent in a cross which sailed past outstretched goalkeeper Daniel Aranzubia to Bilbao defender Javi Gonzalez who mistimed a clearance and knocked the ball into his own net after 25 minutes.
Trabzon extended their lead three minutes later when Aranzubia saved a shot only for the ball to rebound into the path of forward Mehmet Yilmaz who slotted it home.
Striker Karadeniz made it 3-0 halfway through the second half as he rounded the Bilbao goalkeeper after a brilliant run and guided the ball into the net.
The third goal stirred Bilbao into action and they hit back four minutes later when midfielder Carlos Gurpegui picked up a loose ball in the area and drove a shot into the far corner.
With 10 minutes remaining the unmarked Asier Del Horno headed a goal from a free-kick to make the score 3-2 and leave the tie finely balanced for the return leg in Bilbao in two weeks time.
