Scottish referee Craig Thomson will oversee Steven Fletcher’s European bow with Marseille this evening.
The Paisley-born whistler has been selected to take charge of the French giants’ Europa League last-32 clash against Athletic Bilbao.
Fletcher is expected to be in the Marseille squad for the mouth-watering first leg clash at the imposing Stade Velodrome, having been added to their European roster for the knock-out stages of the competition.
And the Scotland international will hope to continue what has been a bright start to his career in the Cote d’Azur following his shock deadline day loan switch from Sunderland.
The former Hibs favourite has already made three appearances for Michel’s men and scored his maiden goal for the club in a 2-0 French Cup win over Trelissac last week.
