EUROPA:
Europa League

– Play off

Match
start: 20:05 (GMT+1)

We
present to your attention one of the most unpredictable pairs of the
second round of the playoffs of Europa League. The modern squads of
these two teams have enough players of the highest class who are
worthy to play in the final of the continental tournament. However,
according to draw procedure, either the hosts, or the closest guests
of Vélodrome
exactly
in one week, on the 15th
of March will finish their performance on the European arena.

Marseille
(the head coach Rudi Garcia)

Despite
the present third place in standings of the French championship,
Marseille experiences recently serious changes. It is enough to
remember two defeats in a row at the meetings against PSG in the
championship and in a quarterfinal of a national cup with total score
– 0:6 (0:3 and 0:3), and two ridiculous draws against two rivals that
are lower in class – Saint-Etienne (2:2) and last Sunday against
Nantes (1:1). Of course, the loss of two points during home meeting
is offensive.

Athletic
Club Bilbao (the head coach José Ángel Ziganda
)

In
the first round of the playoffs of the current continental tournament
Athletic
Club Bilbao
which is taking only the 14th
place in La Liga had destroyed the champion of Russia Spartak.

Now
Basques are facing two legged tie against stronger and talented
rival. However in the championship of Spain the last results of the
team of José Ángel Ziganda does not stand up to criticism. Only one
home victory over Malaga (2:1) was gained. But the Basques have two
guest defeats in a row to Atlético
Madrid

(0:2) and Sevilla (0:2).

Match
prediction

Which
of two top clubs of France and Spain need the final victory in a
current championship of the Europa League more? Definite answer – to
the most popular club of the Basque Country! Only this way Athletic
will manage to brighten up this season, absolutely unsuccessful for
the club.

But
for the hosts of Velodrome the fight against Monaco for the second
direct berth into the Champions League is the most important now.
Obviously, at the same time the participation in the Europa League is
less important.

Marseille
– 1.85, draw – 3.50, Athletic
– 4.20;
