Atheletic Bilbao welcome Hertha Berlin to the San Mamés Stadium for the fifth matchday of the Uefa Europa League this Thursday. Both sides sit outside the qualifying spots in Group J and will be looking to turn fortunes around with one game to go.
Biilbao beat Ostersund 1-0 in the last round and sit third in the group with five points. Aritz Aduriz scored the all-important goal and will once again be their lead striker as they look for a precious three points that could lift them above Zorya who have a point more. They will be without Unai Nunez who was sent off in the dying minutes of the Ostersund match.
Hertha sit bottom of the group despite beating Zorya 2-0 in the last round. They still have a chance though, as a win could take them to second spot if Zorya lose to leaders Ostersund. Davie Selke, brace hero against Zorya, will be their main striker. Salomon Kalou should also be a key figure because of his experience.
