One of the most exciting duels scheduled this Thursday in UEFA Europa League comes from Group J, with Hertha Berlin facing Bilbao from 20:05, UK Time.
Hertha Berlin started this Bundesliga edition with a win, 2-0 over Stuttgart at home. Then they faced Dortmund (0-2) and Werder Bremen (1-1), so their form is not really impressive ahead of this clash. Anyway, Hertha are very strong in front of the own fans and they are capable to win a game like this one. Taking a look at the odds, the Germans are a little in pole-position, but it's going to be a very well balanced duel.
Athletic Bilbao is in top form right now. They eliminated Panathinaikos in UEL play-off after 3-2 away and 1-0 in Spain. The Basques have won seven points in La Liga after the first three matches, so they are ready to fight for Top 4 once again. Muniain and his teammates would be happy with a draw here and they should not have any problem in qualifying from a group with Herha, Ostersunds and FK Zorya.
