Europa League Finals, Marseille 0 V Atletico 3 , ATLETICO CHAMPIONS.

atletico_v_marseille.jpg

Marseille captain Dimitri Payet wants his side to "write their names" in the history books by beating Atletico Madrid in the Europa League final.

The French side reached their first European final since 2005 when they lost in the Uefa Cup to Valencia.

Spaniards Atletico won the competition in 2010 and 2012 and have lost in two Champions League finals since.

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

The former West Ham midfielder set up both goals to inspire his side to victory over Red Bull Salzburg in the semi-finals, while Atletico edged past Premier League side Arsenal.

Payet added: "Those who won the Champions League in 1993 are still heroes because nobody else has done it since.

"We know how tough it is. Of course, that is an added source of motivation, and if we do win the final, our names will be written into the club's history books forever."

Atletico boss Diego Simeone is suspended for the match in Lyon after being sent to the stands against Arsenal, so assistant German Burgos will take charge of the team from the sidelines.

"It was the same thing against Arsenal, when German was in charge of the side," said Simeone.

"I feel sad at not being there, but we have known each other for a lifetime and we understand football in the same way. I have confidence in him being in charge."

Atletico have already assured themselves of a place in next season's Champions League by finishing in the top four in La Liga, but Marseille, currently in the Europa League spot in Ligue 1 with one game remaining, would guarantee their passage by winning the final.

Team news
The only potential injury concern for Atletico is winger Vitolo, who missed the weekend win over Getafe but trained on Monday and could be available.

Their opponents have doubts over striker Kostas Mitroglou and centre-back Rolando.

Preview

Marseille's journey to the final has been erratic to say the least, with Rudi Garcia's men needing an extra time goal from Rolando to send them through against Salzburg in the semi-final.

Re: Europa League Finals, Marseille 0 V Atletico 3 , ATLETICO CHAMPIONS.

Not only have the Ligue 1 outfit lost five times in the Europa League this term, they have also failed to score in five matches and against arguably Europe's best defensive unit, they could struggle once more.

Atletico's defensive record in La Liga is extraordinary, with the Madrid outfit having conceded just 20 goals in 37 games.

Jan Oblak is making a strong case for being the world's best goalkeeper and across La Liga and the Europa League this term, the Slovenian stopper has kept a stunning 26 clean sheets.

2' Costa looks to latch on to a long ball forward, but Mandanda gets across to gather ahead of the Atletico forward.

1' Marseille boot the ball into the corner from the kick-off to get themselves into Atletico territory immediately.

1' We're underway in the Europa League final.

Re: Europa League Finals, Marseille 0 V Atletico 3 , ATLETICO CHAMPIONS.

4' CHANCE! Marseille should be ahead! Thauvin and Payet combine in the final third, with the latter releasing Germain through on goal in the box. Germain only has Oblak to beat, but he spurns the opening, lifting his strike over the bar. That was a glorious opener for the French side.

6' WIDE! Atletico clear the first cross into the box, but the ball hangs on the edge. Rami turns and swings a leg at a strike on the half-volley, which sails narrowly wide of the post.

Re: Europa League Finals, Marseille 0 V Atletico 3 , ATLETICO CHAMPIONS.

11' It has been an encouraging start from the French side, who are moving the ball with confidence around the pitch.

9' Costa and Rami endure a battle in the Marseille half, which results in Garcia's men winning a free-kick. Don't expect that to be the last of Costa being involved in tussle this evening.

15' WIDE! Koke latches on to a loose ball 20 yards from goal following a clearance by Rami. He goes for the spectacular volley, only to send his effort wide of the post.

14' Atletico win a free-kick in a decent position after a foul by Zambo-Anguissa. However, Koke's delivery from the right flank is cleared with ease by the French outfit.

Re: Europa League Finals, Marseille 0 V Atletico 3 , ATLETICO CHAMPIONS.

18' Germain flicks the ball into the path of Payet 20 yards from goal. The Frenchman goes for an ambitious first-time strike, but he fails to connect with his effort on the outside of his right foot.

16' Griezmann does well in the middle of the park to release Koke into the final third. However, the Spaniard's attempted offload to Costa is intercepted by Luiz Gustavo, while Zambo-Anguissa mops up the danger.
