Match : Marseille vs Athletic Bilbao

Competition : Europe League

Time / Date : 22:05h / 8 March 2018

Venue : Orange Vélodrome


They didn’t perform the way we use to see them and they are winless in four matches and have failed to score in three of those.

Athletic Bilabo

Athletic Bilbao aren’t in great form either. In fact, they’re having a torrid season domestically, sitting 15th in La Liga and getting eliminated from the Copa del Rey all the way back in November against 3rd tier Formentera.

It hasn’t any better recently either. They lost at Sevilla on Saturday to make it two wins, six draws, and four defeats in their last 12 matches in all competitions. Three of these defeats have come in the last five matches, including a 2-1 loss at home to Spartak Moscow.

Missing players

H2h meetings

Athletic Bilbao have won one and drawn one of their two meetings with Marseille, with those coming in a 2016 Europa League tie.
