      Athletic Bilbao vs Marseille Predictions

       

      It was a good night for the Basques when the sides met in France last week. The prolific Aritz Aduriz scored the only goal of the game and they are now strong favourites to progress. However Athletic came unstuck at the weekend losing 1-0 at home to Basque rivals Real Sociedad to continue their poor run in the fixture. They’ve taken just 1 point from their last 3 league games and certainly any hopes of Champions League football next term look to rest on winning this competition.

      Marseille despite being down in 11th in Ligue 1 are only 5 points off the top three and they have only lost 4 of their last 26 matches in all competitions so Athletic will need to be good again to finish the job here. Marseille drew 1-1 at home to Saint Etienne at the weekend but have been more impressive on the road of late.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      Marseille are unbeaten in 14 away games in normal time so they could make a real game of this yet. Athletic aren’t in the best of form overall and will have bad memories of this stage last year when they lost 3-2 at home to Torino after securing a solid 2-2 draw in the 1st leg in Italy. Marseille’s last two domestic fixtures have finished 1-1 and you can back a 1-1 draw at 13/2 here.
