Athletic Bilbao vs Marseille Preview

Athletic Bilbao fought back from a first leg deficit in the last round against Spartak Moscow and they will have to do so again here if they want to make it through to the Europa League quarter final. The 3-1 loss in France has given them a major uphill task, making their opponents favourites to progress.

Aritz Aduriz overcame illness to score in the first leg and will be fine to play here. Raul Garcia and Mikel San Jose are suspended for Bilbao after receiving yellow cards last week. January signing Íñigo Martínez is ineligible for this competition, while Iker Muniain and Mikel Rico are injury doubts for José Ángel Ziganda’s side.

Marseille will feel as if they have put themselves into an excellent position to progress with a convincing win in front of their own fans last week. As long as they defend well, they should see themselves through, though if Bilbao get an early goal it could be nervy.

Kostas Mitroglou and Grégory Sertic are injury worries for Marseille ahead of the trip to Spain. They are likely to stick with a similar 11 that took to the field last week. Lucas Ocampos and Jordan Amavi both avoided a yellow card in the first leg and are thus free to play.

Athletic Bilbao vs Marseille Prediction

Athletic Bilbao bounced back from the defeat in the first leg to record a steady 2-0 victory at home to Leganes in La Liga action on Sunday after two goals from Raul Garcia. That result left them 12th in La Liga, so progression in Europe is crucial for their season.

Marseille on the other hand are  doing well in Ligue 1, currently sitting in 3rd place. They can’t compete with the money Paris Saint Germain have but 2nd place is still up for grabs in the last few months of the season. They beat Toulouse 2-1 on Sunday.

Marseille are in a great position but this tie is far from done. Athletic Bilbao will have their home support fully behind them for this one and they will believe they can turn this 3-1 deficit around and stay in the Europa League.

The tip is for Athletic Bilbao to win on the night but only by a single goal, meaning that Marseille would progress on aggregate.
