Atletico to hand Spain Europa League glory - bookies

Salzburg had proven in the Europa League quarter-finals that they're capable of mounting a fightback, and Die Roten Bullen did claw back the deficit with goals from Amadou Haidara and Bouna Sarr (OG).

Though the former Argentina global midfielder's team, which has reached the Champions League final twice and also a semi-final in the last three seasons, start favourites, Simeone knows Marseille's attacking potency could cause the La Liga outfit a serious problem.

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

"They are very solid and have the best defensive record in Spain but they are risky in attack too", he said.

The 27-year-old France forward has speed, an eye for the decisive pass, and the ability to score hard goals.

Simeone is likely to have the entire Atletico squad available in Wednesday's match for the first time since November.

It would be a first, and possibly last major medal as an Atletico player for Griezmann, who was raised not far from Lyon but has spent his whole career in Spain. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak has been especially sensational in the tournament.


Follow live updates from the game below beginning at game time. In that game's decisive penalty shootout, he failed to save any of Madrid's five spot kicks. "Their coach has done a great job".

"I believe that tactically, on a defensive level he is the best in the world".

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.

Atletico Madrid is second in the La Liga table and won their last domestic league game against Getafe and with one game to end the season, they have already booked their place for next season's Champions League.

"All the forwards have won something with this club over the past few seasons and he wants to leave his mark here too", he said. At 34, he is no longer an important player for Simeone, but he is an idol for Atletico's fans.

Los Colchoneros, who qualified for the Europa League via a third-placed finish in the Champions League group stage, have won six and lost one of their eight games played in the competition.
