Europa League Final

by -

Atletico Madrid were dominant in the UEFA Europa League 2017/18 final against Olympique Marseille in Lyon tonight. A defensive mistake after 21′ was exploited by Antoine Griezmann, who doubled earlier in the second half following a positive start from the Ligue One giants.

Captain Gabi sealed a final 0-3 for Diego Pablo Simeone’s men, who reached both Inter Milan and Juventus  with 3 titles in their history. Sevilla remain top of the table with 5 titles.

Former West Ham United striker Dimitri Payet, who was a doubt ahead of the game, limped off the pitch in tears just after Griezmann’s opener as he suffered a knee injury. On the other hand, Fernando Torres came off the bench with 2′ left to go to celebrate his final trophy of career.

REMINDER – Chelsea won the Europa League in 2013 as they beat Benfica in Amsterdam under Rafa Benitez’s management. A late goal from Branislav Ivanovic won the Europa League for the Blues, who will be playing in the same competition next season.
