Europa League final: 'cold-blooded' Griezmann wins trophy for Atletico

Atletico were too streetwise and also just too good for a spirited Marseille side - with two Antoine Griezmann's goals superbly finished after naive mistakes from their opponents, and Rojiblanco captain Gabi wrapping up the scoring late on.

The France worldwide netted twice in Lyon, as Atletico brushed aside Olympique de Marseille 3-0 to win the prize.

And with Griezmann looking all but certain to move to Barcelona this summer, the French ace will need to help his side to that coveted bragging rights 2nd place, above Real in the final standings this weekend.

It could argued that winning the trophy and writing his name into club folklore could be factors in convincing Griezmann to perhaps even say at the Wanda Metropolitano.
