Atletico to hand Spain Europa League glory - bookies

Atletico to hand Spain Europa League glory - bookies

The second goal for Diego Simeone's men held early in the second half of the match - another goal scored Griezmann.

"We are not far away in sporting terms from teams who are more powerful than us".

Atletico is set to return to the Champions League next season, but Simeone will still have to serve the final two games of his ban when the club kicks off its European campaign next season in the Champions League group stage.

Both his goals were very coolly taken, with careful finishes which gave his global teammate and Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda no chance to save. "The two teams are similar in terms of play, we are both very direct, and in terms of hope and enthusiasm so it will be a great final".

Goalkeeper Steve Mandanda opted to pass to Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, deep in midfield, rather than clear long.

But his Atletico team-mates are confident the 27-year-old is fully focused on leading his side to what would be their third Europa League title since the start of the decade.

The tragic scenes overshadowed Mrs May's meeting at 10 Downing Street with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan . Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said peaceful protests were "being exploited by extremists".

Four minutes after the re-start, Koke ran into a hole in the Marseille midfield and slipped the ball to Griezmann who dinked the ball past Mandanda, and Gabi added a late third to hand the French side their third defeat in as many finals in the competition.

The game, at Lyon's Groupama Stadium, will be Marseille's first European final since 2003-04 when a side featuring Fabien Barthez and Didier Drogba finished runners-up to Valencia in the UEFA Cup. Subs: Juanfran (on for Vrsaljko, 45) 7, Thomas Partey (on for Correa, 88) N/A, Fernando Torres (on for Griezmann, 90) N/A.

They are yet to lift the Europa League trophy, but did emerge victorious in the 1992/93 Champions League. The misery was compounded by the loss of Marseille's talismanic defender and captain Dmitri Payet to injury after only half an hour played. "We work ourselves and defend well to be a hard opponent who takes advantage of their errors".

The football gods demonstrated it was not to be their night as a Kostas Mitroglou header bounced off the inside of the post and out before veteran Gabi had the final say after another assist from Koke.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone will be unable to orchestrate proceedings from the dugout as he serves a suspension following his sending-off in the semi-final first leg against Arsenal.
