Marseille Started The Europa League Final By Taking The Worst Kick-Off Ever

17 May 2018

The France star has been tipped to leave Atletico at the end of the season after four years in the Spanish capital, with speculation that he will join Barcelona.

The France worldwide gave his side the lead in Lyon with an cheeky finish after catastrophic defending from the French outfit.

"It will depend on his feelings more than anything else", Gil Marin said after Atletico's Europa League triumph.

Simeone, who had to watch from the stands due to a touchline ban, called the victory a reward for his side's hard work and even expressed hope that Griezmann could be convinced to stay.

"This cup has given us a lot", he commented. This [final] was a very important game, as it allowed us to keep up at the top level. "I just want to enjoy myself after my performance, after winning a trophy and I want to celebrate with the fans". They carried on anyway, and so did the game, with sections of the stadium cloaked in thick pyrotechnic smoke.

"We let our chance go in the first half". Rudi Garcia's side did not create enough to break down one of Europe's toughest defences and their chances of causing an upset took a blow with Dimitri Payet limping off injured in the first half.

"The scoreline is harsh but the better team won". The French side should have been ahead inside the opening four minutes with Payet feeding Valere Germain, who could only fire wide when through on goal.

Marseille were then punished for sloppy play as they fell behind in the 21st minute.

Atletico are celebrating winning the Europa League final last night, but Lacazette says: "If it was unusual to play against Atlético Madrid that I could join a year ago? No". Captain Gabi capped off Atletico's victory with a fine finish in the last minute after being set up by Koke.
