Injured Dimitri Payet's tearful exit from Europa League final

After 25 years Marseille looking to win in Europe again

Atletico 's Antoine Griezmann's celebrates his side opening goal during the Europa League Final soccer match between Marseille and Atletico Madrid at the Stade de Lyon outside Lyon, France, Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

A victory for Los Colchoneros in this game would see them equal Sevilla as the team to have won the Europa League on the most occasions (three). Andre Zambo Anguissa miscontrolled a pass from goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and Griezmann was never going to miss after being played in by Koke.

Of the six previous occasions that a Spanish team has reached the Europa League final, only one of them has not gone on to win - however, that came in 2011/12 when Athletic Club were beaten by fellow Spanish side Atl├ętico (0-3).

Thomas Tuchel hired as new PSG coach
Emery, who on Sunday was named as France's coach of the year, will lead the side for the last time against Caen this weekend.

"Griezmann took full advantage", Marseille coach Rudi Garcia said.

The game, at Lyon's Groupama Stadium, will be Marseille's first European final since 2003-04 when a side featuring Fabien Barthez and Didier Drogba finished runners-up to Valencia in the UEFA Cup.

Without Payet, Marseille were rarely a threat, one-goal leads are something Atletico can protect with the most deflating of ease, but on this occasion, they elected to give themselves an extra cushion. "Physically he is in good shape and for him it is important to win a title because he needs it, and that is the only thing that matters to him", said veteran midfielder Gabi. Replacing Griezmann, on came Fernando Torres to make his final appearance for his boyhood club.

"I don't think now is the time to talk about my future".

But ultimately the Spaniard has been unable to deliver the Champions League at two attempts which PSG's Qatari owners crave.

Not only did Payet's side go on to lose 3-0 in the final, the France star limped off with a leg injury in the first half that puts his World Cup hopes in serious doubt.

It wasn't just down to hard work though, for Atletico Madrid's crown jewel Griezmann had a profound impact on his club's strong finish to the season.

The football gods demonstrated it was not to be their night as a Kostas Mitroglou header bounced off the inside of the post and out before veteran Gabi had the final say after another assist from Koke.
