Athletic Bilbao vs Marseille odds

Athletic Bilbao vs Marseille betting preview

Marseille have beaten Athletic Bilbao 3-1 in the first leg of their Europa League clash and they travel to San Mames Barria hoping to capitalize on the advantage earned in front of the home fans and get through to the Quarter-finals. While their 1-2 win over Toulouse was their first on the road since early February, it does feel they’re coming on a high.

Nonetheless, it’s still very tough to see them cause an upset in Basque Country and backing them seems like a longshot at 9/2 with Betfair. While Rudi Garcia’s men will lack no motivation, we’ve witnessed their woes away from home and we don’t see it any other way in Spain either.

Athletic Bilbao have, on the other hand, only ended their three-match winless streak with a 2-0 win over Leganes at this ground – bagging their second win in three home games (after beating Malaga 2-1 and holding Valencia to a 1-1 draw). They’ve been regularly scoring numbers of goals and this could prove even more worrying for the travelling fans. 

Les Phoceens have timed their form perfectly and we’ve seen them pick it up with a 1-2 win in Toulouse, but this was only their first win in five games on the road – after failing to find the net at Sporting Braga (1-0) and PSG twice (3-0 in Ligue 1 and 3-0 in Coupe de France). One goal at this ground would surely untangle the clash, though, so Marseille should come very motivated to score.

Athletic Bilbao vs Marseille predictions

We do believe Bilbao will be able to turn a narrow contest their way and we’ll now back them to win at 11/8 with William Hill, which feels like the best value in the market although it could just be not enough to get through to the next round.

We do believe Marseille will not come just defending their own and that the visitors will be able to make use of open spaces at the back too, as we back a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/10 with Ladbrokes.
