Atleti to frustrate mercurial Marseille

atletico madrid

The Europa League final is often a more expansive affair than its big brother, but something tells me Atletico Madrid are going to strangle this year’s edition against Marseille.

Atletico 9/5 – To win to zero

Two-time winners Los Colchoneros have continued to be as defensively stubborn as always this term, conceding just 20 times in La Liga.

Diego Simeone will set his side up to sit deep and frustrate a talented Marseille attacking unit, which includes former Premier League players Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin.

A tight game is likely in Lyon then and the Les Phoceens will also be aware that they lost 2-0 at Parc OL early in the campaign.

Expect another clean sheet tonight, though, as Los Colchoneros aim to put on one of their famous defensive displays.

Diego Costa 5/1 – First Goalscorer

Diego Costa is arguably the player that reflects Simeone’s personality the best on the field and he netted the only goal in the semi-final second-leg win over Arsenal.

Despite again struggling with hamstring injuries, he has been a menace since returning to Spain in January.

Marseille are hardly the most organised in defence and he is sure to use all his nous and physicality to exploit any weaknesses.
