Atletico Madrid vs Marseille: The coaches

Marseille and Atletico Madrid will battle it out in the final of the Europa League at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon on Wednesday. He can turn the game at any moment of the match.

"The fact we played a day earlier against Guingamp is an advantage. He will always ask for the best of me and make me do my best, and I'll always be there to help him and help win the games", Griezmann says.

"We know experience is on their side". "If we have similarities to them then it's because we're both full of character".

We're lucky to be at Marseille, a club which has a fantastic love affair with Europe dating back to the 1990s". We all want to follow in the footsteps of our predecessors. It will be very hard though.
