Marseille vs Athletic Bilbao: Live stream, TV channel, team news and kick-off time for the Europa League clash
THE Europa League last-16 gets underway this week as two familiar foes prepare to lock horns.
Marseille and Athletic Bilbao met in the last-32 of the competition in 2016.
That time it was the Spanish side who advanced, winning the away tie at the Stade Velodrome 1-0 before drawing 1-1 in the return clash.
Despite their success then, Bilbao still have a miserable record in France.
They have only avoided defeat once in their four previous trips to there.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the showdown:
What time is kick-off?
The first-leg takes place on Thursday 8 March.
It will be played at the Stade Velodrome and kick-off is at 8.05pm.
What channel can I watch it on?
It’s good news for UK football fans hoping to catch the action.
BT Sport 3 will be screening it live.
What is the latest team news?
Marseille have injury doubts over Kostas Mitroglou and Gregory Sertic, while Lucas Ocampos and Jordan Amavi will both miss the second-leg if they get booked.
Mikel Rico and Mikel Balenziaga are both missing for the visitors.
Meanwhile, Bilbao will also be without January signing Inigo Martinez, who is ineligible for the tie.
