8 monthes ago   |   By TheScore

Atletico Madrid eased to a 3-0 victory over Marseille in Wednesday's Europa League final in Lyon.

Captain Gabi added a tidy finish with a minute left of normal time. It was the 34-year-old's first competitive goal since August 2015. The Spanish side's third strike came eight minutes after Kostas Mitroglou had a header denied by...
