16 May, 2018, 14:48 | Author: Candice Daniels
For Atletico, the match is another shot at putting things right in a decider after failing to get over the line in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals.
"Football has given me the opportunity to return to Atletico and fight for titles as a player, and achieving the Europa League trophy would be something special without a doubt", the footballer explained in a question and answer session with Euromision.
Marseille have been involved in four previous major UEFA competition finals, while Atlético Madrid will be competing in their ninth - and fifth in the past nine seasons.
The Los Rojiblancos however, have not beaten a French club in France since September 1961, when they won 3-2 at Sedan in the first round of their triumphant European Cup Winners' Cup campaign.
"The clubs' only past fixtures came in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League group stage, Javier Aguirre's Atletico beating Eric Gerets' Marseille 2-1 at home before a goalless draw at the Stade Velodrome".
Marseille have won only four of their 15 UEFA competition matches against Spanish opposition, losing eight. It'll be a really great final. With the final set for Lyon, Marseille will have to cast aside any demons they have faced in their recent trips up the Rhone. And there was to be no fightback from Lokomotiv in Russian Federation, as the Liga side romped ruthlessly to a 5-1 away win - a match that featured what could prove to be Fernando Torres' last two European goals for the club.
Wednesday night's clash will be just the third time the two sides have faced one another.
In many ways Simeone's hard-working side were in their element in the way they dug out a 1-1 draw at the Emirates in London, despite having had Sime Vrsaljko sent off early on, as well as their Argentine coach for complaining - before seeing out a 1-0 victory at home. We resemble each other a lot. "We are similar teams and it will be quite a tense game", he said.
This game is a sort of homecoming for Griezmann, who has spent his whole club career in Spain but grew up in Macon, less than an hour's drive from Lyon. "We're going to need to seize control of the match".
Antoine Griezmann has the natural attacking talent to stand out on any team, but he is the glaring exception on an Atletico side that is otherwise built on strength and ability to defend first, score second. "They have offensive full-backs".
