  • Atletico Madrid's poor record against French teams and other stats as they face Marseille

Striker Antoine Griezmann punished sloppy Marseille with two expertly-taken goals as Atletico Madrid won the Europa League for the third time with a resounding 3-0 victory in Wednesday's final.

Today, May 16, Marseille take on Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Europa League final.

"We believe against Atletico because this season has shown that we are a real team", said Payet.

Atletico, who also won the 2010 Europa League, beating Fulham 2-1 in the final, have a full squad available after Spain winger Vitolo recovered from a hamstring strain. Furthermore, if we ignore all-Spanish finals, then dating back to the 2002 Champions League final Spanish teams have won 10 of the 12 European finals they've contested with seven wins by at least two clear goals.

UEFA Cup runners-up in 1998/99 and 2003/04, Marseille have reached the UEFA Europa League final for the first time in four attempts.

Maxime Lopez (for Payet 32) - 5 - It was always going to be a tough task in replacing Payet but Lopez did not have the best game as Marseille's hold on the game drifted.

Mandanda warned Griezmann isn't Atletico's only threat, however.


Marseille's run has been surprising given they started their campaign against Oostende in late July, having only qualified as a outcome of Paris Saint-Germain's domestic cup success.

A spot in the 2018-19 Champions League could very well be on the line for Rudi Garcia's squad, as they now trail Lyon by one point with one match remaining for the final UCL qualifying spot in Ligue 1.

The game which starts at 6:45 promises to be exciting and we will be bringing you live text commentary so stay with us. Playing Atletico is a big event for us.

Antoine Griezmann says Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone reminds him of legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. "Of course their free kicks and corners are unsafe, but they have many more weapons".

The French side this season qualified for the Europa League group stages after eliminating KV Oostende from Belgium and NK Domzale from Slovenia.

Someone's assistant German Burgos will be in the dugout. "We know each other for a lifetime, we have similar feelings and understanding of football".

"At Newcastle it was a great experience for him - maybe not for the fans because the club spent a lot of money on him", he said.
