Europa League final preview: Greizmann goes home

After 25 years Marseille looking to win in Europe again Europa League Final 2018: how and where to watch - TV, online

Certainly it is true that there is more to Atletico's style of play than simply being solid and counter-attacking with expansive ball players like Koke and Saul in midfield, and they will be able to take the game to Marseille. Here are some of the key duels in which the French club must seek to gain an edge.

Atletico have had plenty of heartbreak in European finals down the years, as have Marseille. He is industrious off the ball, and he will be aware of his role in disrupting the rhythm of Marseille's creators, Payet above all. Containing Griezmann and Diego Costa will be a tall order.

Atletico Madrid beat Arsenal in the semifinals to advance to the final, while Marseille ousted Salzburg in the semifinals to earn a spot in the final.

This will be Diego Simeone's fourth major European final since taking charge at Atlético in 2011/12 - the Argentine has lost both of his Champions League finals, however did win his only previous Europa League final in 2011/12.

"He has made me grow on a personal and professional level", Griezmann added.

Since dropping out of the Champions League after an unusually poor group-stage campaign, Atleti have taken the Europa League very seriously, with Simeone choosing his strongest available line-up more often than not. On all those occasions one of the two has been booked.

West Ham received £25million after they offered Payet and he signed a four-and-a-half yr deal, with the choice of an additional yr.

"I was born in Marseille, so for me it's special the Velodrome". His progress in the past 18 months has been such that his native country and his adopted one have got into a joust for the right to his global future. Left-back Filipe Luis is expected to return to the lineup from an injury. Les Phocéens ran out comfortable 2-0 victors at the impressive Stade Vélodrome thanks to goals from Florian Thauvin and Clinton Njie.

Regular readers of our Europa League coverage will know that I backed Atletico a few rounds ago to win the tournament at odds of [4.0], and they are now [1.73] to win the final in 90 minutes.

The odds are in Atletico's favour, however Simeone may rest some of his stars for the Eibar game, to give them an extended break ahead of the World Cup. Big, broad and booming, Burgos exudes menace, but has a sharp tactical nous, an expertise in organising set-plays and the respect of Atletico's players. It will, however, have to do so without its talismanic manager Diego Simeone on the touchline, who is serving a touchline ban. "Their full backs are also very risky".

Coach Rudi Garcia said he also expects right-back Bouna Sarr, who dislocated a shoulder in the 3-3 draw with Guingamp, striker Kostas Mitroglou (hamstring) and centre-back Rolando (calf) to also be ready to face Atletico in what will be his team's 19th match in the competition.
