Marseille vs Ath Bilbao Prediction & Betting tips
The favorites to win the game are the Gauls, as it is always difficult to play in the Velodrome. For that reason and knowing that they are offensive thanks to the style of Professor Rudi García, it is logical that the process of the game be opened from the initial stage. Against this background, we believe that the bet “more 1.5 goals” is ideal to bet. Remember that the Basques are irregular in defense but powerful in attack when they propose it.
The team comes from equalizing 1-1 over the final against Nantes at home, leaving behind two consecutive defeats against PSG (3-0 for the league and 3-0 for the Cup). The aim of the team is to be able to directly qualify for the next Champions League, placing it currently in third place in the competition (it has been included in the previous round).
The numbers of Marseille in the Velodrome stadium are more than positive after winning matches, equaling others and losing the remainder they played (9 wins, 4 draws and drop). The game plan raised by coach Rudi Garcia is being more than interesting, as it allows the French to have a lot of depth in front of the goal (33 for and 13 against). In itself, this 4-5-1 is allowing him to attack a lot for the bands and overcome the rivals for that area of the field.
Athletic Bilbao :
After losing 2-0 to Sevilla in the Sánchez Pizjuán, the “Lions” have the goal of continuing to stand up in this European competition. The problem of Athletic is its imbalance between lines, which has it in the lower part of the Spanish league. Of course, they have an offensive block that can surprise on this tough start.
As visitors, the Basques have not registered so encouraging markers in the Santander League (3 wins, 4 equalities and 6 falls, managing to score 16 goals and receiving 21 in their goal). Of course, they are still a combative and intense eleven despite their limitations in the brand and in the backward movement. They achieved their qualification after beating 1-3 at Spartak Moscow in Russia, a result that ultimately earned them the chance to pass the round (1-2 defeat at home in the return game played at the new San Mamés).
