Marseille vs Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid against Olympic Marseille. That's the final match in Europa League which will be played at Olympic Lyon's stadium. Atletico can be even much more supported, not only by Spaniards, but also by Lyon's fans as we know Lyon and Marseille are in far away than friendly relationship. Don't think this will be the perfect place for a final match for Marseille, although it's in France and they should be counted as hosts.
Both teams had a long way till this final and there is just one step between them and the trophy. I think Atletico are closer to the title here. They proved themselves as fighters during the years and they can be equal to the best clubs in Europe. I expect them to defend as always well and their forwards to use the chances they will face during the match. I will not write their way to the final, because it's a mix of prestigious and not so prestigious European clubs, it's still important which teams are in the big final. Marseille is not of the teams which is known with their perfect defense and that's the reason they have to think how to score at least one time to have chances in the final. Both teams have brilliant attacks, so I think the defense will be the key factor here. Atletico proved so many times how they can take the lead and keep their advantage in the result.
Both teams don't have big problems with injuries or suspensions. Doubtful for both of the teams are Mitroglou and Rolando for Marseille and Gimenez and Vitolo for Atletico Madrid. Their predicted starting line-ups look impressive, especially their forwards. I still think Atletico have much more class in their team and better defense, so I give them the advantage here. Although I like Real Madrid, I will support Atletico in this match and expect them to win in the regular time.
2:0 or 2:1 as correct score is my prediction here for the Spaniards!
