Europa final likely Griezmann's Atletico adieu

Griezmann's double put Atletico Madrid in command of the final, and captain Gabi iced the 3-0 win over Marseille with a late dagger in Lyon, France, where the club lifted a third Europa League trophy, despite its manager being suspended for the final.

The Europa League final also offers Marseille the best chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League as it sits fourth in the Ligue 1 table with the final round matches left to play.

Payet is the French league's best passer and helped lead Marseille to its first European final for 14 years, with three goals and seven assists in the competition. "For a player, when Barca want you, it makes you feel important, but he knows that he is important for us and that we want him here". "Of course, that's an added source of motivation, and if we do win the final, our names will be written into the club's history books forever".

Both teams have met just twice in all European competitions in 2008/2009 Champions' League group stage with Atletico Madrid defeating Marseille 2-1 in France while the second leg at the Stade Velodrome ended goalless as Marseille finished in the third place.

The game carried on regardless, with Rudi Garcia's side well beaten by Diego Simeone's Atletico.

And Griezmann believes the success the Argentinian is bringing to Atletico is similar to that which Ferguson had at United.

Marseille had been thoroughly beaten and could only salute their fervent supporters, who outnumbered the Spanish fans in the 59,000-capacity Groupama Stadium and let off flares and firecrackers at the start and end of the game.

OM needed to take the game to Atletico in the second half, but instead they conceded again just four minutes after the restart.
