Griezzi fires Atletico Madrid to Europa League glory

La Liga logo

He was still in England when Atletico snapped a 14-year trophy drought by beating Fulham 2-1 to win the 2010 Europa League and was at Chelsea when his former club won five trophies in two years under coach Diego Simeone, the crowning jewel being the 2014 La Liga title.

"We have been speaking about him all year".

Madrid's win in Lyon brings the tally of European trophies won by Spanish sides to eight of the past nine - Manchester United's triumph in the 2017 edition of this tournament is the only exception. "I hope he stays".

Marseille and Atletico Madrid have only met twice before, in the group stages of the 2008/09 Champions League.

No team has been shown more yellow cards (30) or red cards (3) than Marseille in the Europa League this season.

You can choose your preferred option from our wide range of sign-up packages here and we'll get you live for Marseille v Atletico Madrid in just 15 minutes. Marseille have not been in a European final since losing the 2004 UEFA Cup to Valencia, and Simeone said his side's superior experience in finals would help his side but would not be decisive.

"It is never good to make comparisons".

Won't allow anything threatening India's security: North Korea
It may be recalled that in October previous year , India had made it clear that it would not shut its embassy in North Korea. The two leaders also agreed on enhancing people-to-people relations in the field of education and culture.

"It wasn't meant to be in the Champions League, but I said to myself that tonight was going to be night and so it was".

Marseille was lost without the silky playmaker pulling the strings in midfield, and Atletico took complete control after he went off in the 31st minute.

"The score does not reflect the game, the more experienced team won, they know how to play these matches, they play in the Champions League regularly so we should not be ashamed of losing this match", Marseille coach Rudi Garcia said.

"Against all reason, for history", urged French sports daily L'Equipe, adding: "It would be an enormous achievement, because nothing will be easy against Atletico". But when Anguissa's error was anticipated and pounced upon by Gabi, the locally born, boyhood Lyon fan was super cool as he tricked his France teammate Mandanda and rolled the ball nervelessly into the net.

Back in Marseille itself, large numbers of fans were already gathering at the city's Old Port on Wednesday morning as anticipation builds.

Payet, who was suffering from a muscle injury, and Griezmann had started together in the French national team's attack when it finished second at Euro 2016.

The Rojiblanco side's build-up to the game was dominated by talk over Griezmann's future, with a €100 million summer move to Barcelona reportedly lined up.
