marsella vs atletico de madrid Europa League final: Marseille 0-3 Atletico Madrid

marsella vs atletico de madrid Atletico Madrid have won the Europa League three times, the joint-most with Sevilla

Antoine Griezmann scored twice as Atletico Madrid swept aside Marseille in Lyon to win the Europa League for the third time in nine years.

France forward Griezmann opened the scoring by punishing Andre Zambo Anguissa's poor touch to coolly slot home, then casually dinked in a second.

Captain Gabi drilled in the third goal late on as Atletico again lifted the trophy they also won in 2010 and 2012.

The outcome could have been different had Marseille forward Valere Germain taken an early chance, before Griezmann's lethal finishing allowed Atletico to take control.

Marseille skipper Dimitri Payet, an injury doubt before the game, lasted just half an hour before hobbling off in tears.

Without their inspirational midfielder, the French side caused Atletico just one major scare as ex-Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou headed against the post.

  • How did the players rate?

'Cold-blooded' Griezmann one of Europe's best

Antoine Griezmann has scored 30 goals for Atletico Madrid this season

Atletico have been one of Europe's most consistent teams in recent seasons, breaking Barcelona and Real Madrid's stranglehold on La Liga by claiming the title in 2013-14.

Second in the Spanish top flight with one match remaining, they are on course for a top-three finish for the sixth straight season and have appeared in two Champions League finals in that period, losing on both occasions to city rivals Real.

With manager Diego Simeone in the stands - serving a four-game ban for being sent off in the semi-final against Arsenal - Atletico repelled Marseille's early thrusts and produced a performance which has become a trademark under the Argentine.

Griezmann's clinical double took his tally for the club this season to 30 before Gabi added the third as the Ligue 1 club tried in vain to breach a backline that has conceded just 33 goals in 58 games all campaign.

"I am very happy," said Griezmann.

"I have been working to experience such a moment for many years. I left home when I was 14 for that. We will celebrate. My family is here.

"I don't know how to describe the finish, perhaps cold-blooded."

Atletico conclude their league season against Eibar on Sunday, and it remains to be seen if that is Griezmann's last game for the club as he has been heavily linked with Barcelona.

Payet blow for France?

The Marseille fans were left disappointed having made the short trip up north to Lyon

Payet has been Marseille's star man this season - his 22 assists in all competitions the most by any player in Europe's top five leagues.

The former West Ham midfielder was struggling with a thigh problem before the game and, despite being passed fit, crumpled down in the opening period and was clearly devastated as he made his way off the pitch.

France boss Didier Deschamps names his 23-man squad for the World Cup on Thursday, and Payet will be left wondering whether he will be fit.

It was his clever through ball in the sixth minute that set Germain in on goal, but the striker struck horribly wide from 10 yards out.

Former Aston Villa full-back Jordan Amavi struck a fizzing drive straight at goalkeeper Jan Oblak late on as Marseille lost their third final in this competition - twice under its previous guise as the Uefa Cup.

Defender Adil Rami said: "The final step was too far for us but we fought for everything.

"We lacked experience. Against such a team you should not try to play football. You need to knock it long and high and win second balls.

"When you try to play and lose the ball against them, that is when you are in trouble."

Man of the match - Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)

Griezmann's goals settled the match, and the Frenchman got to showcase his Fortnite-inspired celebration

French hoodoo continues - the stats

  • Atletico have won the Europa League three times, the joint-most with Sevilla since the competition's inaugural season in 2009-10.
  • Marseille have lost each of their past three major finals in European competition, without scoring a single goal. All have been in the Uefa Cup/Europa League.
  • In major European finals, French sides have now lost all five of their encounters with Spanish opposition, with Marseille accounting for the past two.
  • Since the beginning of the 2013-14 season, Spanish clubs have won eight of the past nine Champions League and Europa League trophies combined - Manchester United in this competition last season being the exception.
  • Simeone has become just the second manager to lift the Europa League on more than one occasion, after Unai Emery (3).
  • Koke now has five assists for Atletico in the Europa League - only Diego (8) has more for the club since the competition began in 2009-10.
  • Griezmann has been directly involved in 12 goals in European competition this season (eight goals, four assists).
  • Griezmann has been directly involved in 45% of the 94 goals (29 goals, 13 assists) that Atletico have scored in all competitions this season.
  • Oblak has registered seven clean sheets in European competition this season, more than any other goalkeeper in the Champions League or Europa League.

    22:37 16 May 2018I'm hugely against how teams 'drop down' from the CL when they're knocked out. You've been knocked out of your European cup; there's no real reason why you should then get to play in another one you never qualified for, especially at the detriment of teams who only have an outside chance of winning trophies elsewhere. It's farcical and the footballing world should be contesting it en masse.

    12:30 16 May 2018Did you all read that comment ....." since the 2013-2014 season, out of the possible 8 cups wins available (champions League, Europa League) Spanish clubs won 7 of those finals",........ thats what you call domination, incredible in the modern age of football, especially with the premier league clubs having so much more money available.
    Watch now... a whole raft excuses coming my way

    22:33 16 May 2018Great win for Atletico. Simeone is a great manager and Atletico have some of the most passionate fans in Europe - why on earth would he want to go to Arsenal and possibly the most apathetic bunch of fans You could find anywhere.

    07:23 17 May 2018Fair enough they've won it 3 times etc, it's about time the teams who get knocked out of the Champions League don't go into the Europa League, it's ridiculous that teams who are in the Europa have to play against so called better opposition who couldn't cut it with the elite. What next? Teams who get knocked out of the FA cup can go into the Carabao cup? Nah didn't think so. All about money.

    11:45 16 May 2018Atletico actually played good football under simeone for a few years its only since they failed to replace Arda turan with someone as good that they became stale and unable to maintain possession.

    08:47 17 May 2018Fair play Atletico it's not their fault about the rules that say teams who finish 3rd in a CL Group go into the Europa. UEFA only interested in money. Team should not be transferred into another competition if they failed in the previous one.

    23:28 16 May [email protected] - well, that's how you qualify for the Europea League !

    It's like saying Liverpool shouldn't be in the Champs League Final because they didn't win the Premier League, or Cardiff shouldn't be promoted because they didn't win the Championship.

    You may not like the set up, but that's how things work and, ironically, is why more teams should take it seriously. Nothing beats winning a cup !!

    22:43 16 May 2018Somehow I just can't see gatecrashers as the true winners of the Europa League ... when you're out of Europe you should be out ... that said Marseille were really poor after the first goal ... how the heck did they get to the final.

    12:23 16 May 2018OM were shocking in that 2nd leg versus Salzburg. Totally devoid of effort and will to win.
    Atletico should be far too good for them, though Im expecting a cagey dull game.

    12:07 16 May 20185 Simply Ted spouting your usual nonsense again.

    When you were trolling the West Ham HYS at the weekend you will have seen the things WH fans respect are commitment and loyalty. James Collins and Mark Noble may not have the skills of Payet, but we'd have them on any team list before him, but you wouldn’t understand that as you have no idea what you’re talking about when it comes to football.

    Yet another case of making a statement while wearing rose tinted glasses.
    Since the turn of the century Spanish teams have won both the champions league & the Europa leage/eufa cup on 9 times, 50% of the time the Spaniards have won the 2 major club competions in Europe.
    You can go down to local playing fields & see an exciting game does not mean it was any good
