UEFA Europa League Marseille – Atletico Madrid Prediction
Of course, both teams will be keen to lift the trophy. No benefit in terms of motivation
State of form
Not expected at this level of the competition, OM benefited from rather favorable draws to make their way to the finals. Indeed, the Phoenicians have alternately dismissed Braga, Bilbao, Leipzig and Salzburg to play the 5th European final in its history. 4th in Ligue 1, Rudy Garcia’s men are in the fight to win one of the first 3 qualifying places for the next Champions League. In solidarity, they conceded no setback in the last 7 days (4 wins and 3 draws). Winners of Nice at the Vélodrome 15 days ago (2-1), Florian Thauvin’s partners chained a spectacular draw on the lawn of Guingamp last Friday (3-3).
Atlético Madrid finished in 3rd place in their Champions League group and was thus donated to the Europa League.

A great performance by creators Payet and Thauvin seems essential if OM wants to win this Wednesday night.
In front, Atletico Madrid, is simply complete for this final. Antoine Griezmann will be keen to win his first European title after having already lost 2 finals of C1. He will be extremely motivated to play in front of his family in Lyon. For a long time uncertain, the Spaniard Vitolo and the Uruguayan Gimenez will be well of the trip.
