BANKER FOOTBALL BETTING TIPS
Hello Punters, welcome to today’s edition of the banker football betting tips. Today is all about the Europa League and I’m picking out the game between Spanish Athletic Bilbao and French Side Marseille. The French side are in good position after securing a 3-1 win in the first leg but I still think there’s still to play for tonight. Details as follows;

Pick: Athletic Bilbao win or draw and over 1.5 goals
ANALYSIS AND MATCH PREVIEW
Bilbao have a herculean task of overturning a two goal deficit over the next 90 minutes of football at San Memes. They were well beaten in the first leg by 3-1 scoreline but at least they can count on their away goal as a positive. They are a good home side and have only lost two of their last 13 home matches. They are without the suspended duo of San Jose and Raul Garcia, while Iker Muniain is injured for the game. Aduritz was rested for the weekend 2-0 win over Leganes and he should lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation tonight.
Marseille hold a two goal lead but will be weary especially considering their own poor form away from home in Europe this season. They have not won any away game in four attempts scoring only two goals in those games. Florent Thauvin returns to the side and his goals will be a welcome addition back into the team. Mitroglou and Gregory Sertic are still out with injury. A 4-2-3-1 formation expected from the visitors with Germain as the striker and Ocampos, Payet and Thauvin behind him.
I expect a reaction from Bilbao tonight and I do not expect them to go down without a fight. Bilbao generally play much better in front of the home crowd and will come out attacking here knowing a 2-0 result will be enough to secure qualification.
