3 monthes ago   |   By TheScore

Atletico Madrid eased to a 3-0 victory over Marseille in Wednesday's Europa League final in Lyon. Antoine Griezmann scored twice for Los Colchoneros - one preying on a defensive error 21 minutes into the showpiece, the other a deft chip over Steve Mandanda shortly after the break - while Marseille's explorations into Atleti's defensive third were all too rare. 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...

3 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is wary of the threat posed by Marseille's Dimitri Payet but believes his team's extra experience will count for something in Wednesday's Europa League final.
