All you need to know about a last-16 showdown that saw ex-West Ham man Dimitri Payet net in Marseille’s 3-1 first leg win
ATHLETIC BILBAO face an uphill task in their bid to make the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
They trail 3-1 from the first leg when Marseille left winger Lucas Ocampos put the Spanish side to the sword.
He inspired the victory with two goals, while former West Ham playmaker Dimitri Payet added another for the team led by Rudi Garcia.
Bilbao are undefeated in last nine league home outings, though, conceding only three goals in their last eight league matches at the San Mames Stadium.
Marseille have blown hot and cold lately, but arrive in Spain on the back of consecutive home victories after beating Athletic and then Toulouse 2-1 on Sunday.
But they have suffered three straight away losses.

You can watch this Europa League battle on BT Sport 3 with coverage starting at 7pm.
