Victory against Atletico on Wednesday will make them the first French club ever to win the Europa League (no French club won it when it was called the UEFA Cup).

Marseille began with urgency, but striker Valere Germain wasted a great chance to taken an early lead when shot over after being played clear through on goal by Dimitri Payet's slick pass after three minutes.

The Brazilian's tackling, reading of the game and physicality has seen him impress whether deployed in midfield or at centre-back - where he has vastly exceeded expectations. "He will be dictating the pace of his team with his play-making", Simeone said Tuesday at a news conference. They're very risky, particularly in midfield and attack. "Their full backs are also very risky". Thauvin has enjoyed a fantastic in Ligue 1 scoring 26 goals and has supplied 17 assists to his team mates.

Payet thinks he knows how to. "But I think we have the attacking quality to do so", the France global said.

"I hope he has that sort of career because he deserves it and takes the team where he wants, at the most, among the "tops" of the world. We're going to need to seize control of the match". Playing Atletico is a big event for us.

Winning the Europa League was not how Atletico planned their 2017-18 season to end, but they proved tonight that they were clearly the best team in this season's competition, and a four-year wait for another major trophy is finally over.

Marseille needed extra time to eliminate Red Bull Salzburg in the semifinal to advance to the final.

Several of Marseille's players were in tears after the final whistle, undone by a player who was turned down by several French clubs when he was a youth because of his diminutive stature. Sure, I really feel I can play tomorrow.

"This is our first full season with Marseille and we did not expect to reach the Europa League final or qualify for the Champions League", the club's president, Jacques-Henri Eyraud said.

"We all want to imitate what our famous predecessors did and we know that it is going to be very hard".

"We'll be excited, up for it, but also tense".

Atletico boss Diego Simeone thinks it will be "a great final" and warned his team of Marseille's unsafe midfield and attacking players. "We're also strong on free kicks". However, Atletico hit the front midway through the first half, capitalising on some poor defending by l'OM to send Griezmann through for the opener. He was formally charged with insulting a match official and improper conduct, per ESPN.

"I'm very close to German".

Wednesday's final will be just the third time the two sides have faced one another.

Even though their coach will not be encouraging them from the sidelines, the players are ready.
