Atletico Madrid defeat Marseille to win the Europa League title

"We know how tough it is". It is going to be quite a mission.

"At Newcastle it was a great experience for him - maybe not for the fans because the club spent a lot of money on him", he said. The 100-player battle royale video game, enjoyed by kids to video game veterans, features various dances that you can do to taunt your opponent. "We have won more than we expected, but we are continuing to rebuild the club under a plan that will take several seasons".

Shortly after, the UEFA Super Cup followed with a 4-1 win over Champions League winners Chelsea, while the Copa del Rey was also won during the 2012/13 season. Moreover, 18 of their 21 wins in 2018 across all competitions have come to nil, while they've won 20 in a row when scoring at least twice.

Marseille failed to win in their last Ligue 1 game as they played a 3-3 draw with Guingamp which dealt a blow to their chase of finishing in the second place to qualify for the Champions League.

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.

Atletico lost in extra time to Real Madrid in the Champions League final of 2014, having been seconds away from victory in 90 minutes, and then lost on penalties to their city rivals in the final of the same competition two years later.

Atleti are the overwhelming favourites going into tonight's game but, unusual as it sounds for a cup final, Marseille arguably have more to gain from winning the competition. "Of course, that is an added source of motivation, and if we do win the final, our names will be written into the club's history books forever".

MEMORABLE MEETING Atletico Madrid have got the better of Marseille once before, this coming back in October 2008.

"We have the chance to play at home - in our country - with a national fervour".

However, Simeone has worked wonders with Atletico since being appointed in late 2011 and winning the Europa League just six months later. "He is a very important player for us and he could play in any team in the world".

Marseille and Atletico Madrid will battle it out in the final of the Europa League at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon on Wednesday.

The Ligue 1 side go in as huge underdogs against Diego Simeone's men in Wednesday's showpiece at Lyon's Groupama Stadium, which will be shown exclusively live across all BT Sport platforms from 7pm.
