Atletico Madrid vs Marseille: The coaches

Going into the final, Atletico Madrid have won the competition in 2010 and 2012 and have lost in two Champions League finals since.

The 37-times capped France playmaker's fitness has been the biggest concern for Marseille fans in recent days, and they will have been pleased to hear him say he is fine after a minor muscle injury prevented him from playing in their last league game.

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

Garcia has changed his tactics from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1, which has benefited former Premier League stars Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin.

Shortly after, the UEFA Super Cup followed with a 4-1 win over Champions League winners Chelsea, while the Copa del Rey was also won during the 2012/13 season. They both play for France, so they play at a very high level.

Simeone served a touchline ban here, meaning assistant German "Mono" Burgos nominally took charge, but that did not perturb them on the field.

"I feel sad at not being there, but we have known each other for a lifetime and we understand football in the same way", he said. "We think the same and have worked together for so long".

Marseille, meanwhile, are aiming for Euro glory on the 25th anniversary of their Champions League triumph.

Garcia's men head into the final of the Europa League having edged past Red Bull Salzburg, courtesy of an extra-time goal from substitute Rolando that ended a closely-fought semi-final encounter.

But before we all go ahead and start saying how Griezmann is hilariously original with doing these celebrations, the first group I remember seeing do this is the UMBC basketball team.

At the time of the Last 32 draw we mentioned how Spanish teams have dominated this competition and that Atletico were the team to back. "It was a massive step and we knew the effect would come after".

Atletico are viewed as the favorites in this game, in part due to their recent big-game experience. Atletico go into the encounter as favourites, however, the Spanish side needs to be wary of their opponents who will be gunning to add the Europa title to their cabinet.

Marseille were stripped of the French top-flight title they won in 1993, with runners-up PSG declining an offer to assume the position of champions, and were prohibited from defending their Champions League title or competing in the 1993 European Super Cup and Intercontinental Cup.

Payet hailed the Marseille supporters for helping carry the team so far.

"Against Arsenal the team moved well, and we are a team who have prepared a lot".
