BILBAO V GRANADA
Athletic Bilbao is 10th on the table with 33 points from 25 played matches. They are without a loss in the last seven games in all competitions. In the previous match, Athletic Bilbao won 2-1 on the Copa del Rey vs Levante road.
Granada is 8th on the table with 30 points. Last weekend, they won 2-1 at home against Elche.
Granada has massive injury problems right now. Six of their players are out, while six more are questionable and doubtful. I pick on the home team to win.
Prediction: Atletico Bilbao win
CANET V MARSEILLE
As league leaders Lille avoided dropping points midweek with a last-gasp 2-0 victory.
It means Marseille's new head coach Nasser Larguet has just two wins from his first seven games in charge after Andre Villas Boas' acrimonious split. However, they are overwhelming favourites to progress past fourth-division side Canet Roussillon this weekend.
After all, Sunday's hosts needed penalty shootouts to outlast both Calomiers and Stade Poitevin. Will their run continue against considerably tougher opposition?
Probably not, when Larguet can call upon players like Valere Germain, Ahmadou Bamba Dieng and talisman Florian Thauvin here. They are 10-to-1 underdogs for a reason. I think punters can find value in betting on both teams not to score.
Prediction: Both teams not to score
