Marseille v Atletico Madrid: Team News

The French side have been involved in two UEFA Cup finals before, losing both of them to Parma 3-0 in '98/99 before being beaten by another Spanish side Valencia five years later in a 2-0 defeat in Sweden.

French side Marseille returned in the big game in fashion, in the first attempt breaking into the Europa League final. Having featured in finals here twice already, they failed to put first-ever silverware in their trophy cabinet from the second-best club competition in Europe.

Talented manager Rudi Garcia has done his job pretty well so far, having his team improved tactically and as a result, Marseille have become more competitive on domestic level and in Euro cups. Good financing makes it possible for The Olympians to grow and bring in star players: Dimitri Payet, Mandanda, Adil Rami and Luiz Gustavo.

Atlético are looking for their third win in this tournament after victory in 2010 and 2012 in a competition dominated by Spanish clubs, with the last 14 EL finals seeing eight Iberian winners. Interestingly, the 2010 success was the EL’s inaugural season.

The Mattressers have the status of one of the most established sides in European football and have been a regular progressing furthest into the final stages of European competitions. Seemingly effortlessly having made their way to the final, Atleti look more likely to take another trophy away from a less experienced and distinguished opponent.

Why are our predictions certain to succeed?

We're as good as set to watch a spectacular contest. Rarely teams in the finals like this resort to the pragmatic approach. As it represents the only chance for both of them to win silverware this season, they should give their best - and the question is, will the strength of character or tactical solutions prove crucial here? After all, Atleti is believed to be clear favourites travelling to France and given how much plenty of experience they carry on their back, it looks reasonable to expect the cup to go to the Spanish side following the final whistle.
