Griezmann pounces twice as Atletico sink hapless Marseille

Griezmann pounces twice as Atletico sink hapless Marseille

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Spanish giants Atletico Madrid won the 2017/18 Europa League title after beating French club Olympique Marseille 3-0 in the final on Wednesday night, May 16.

The French side though had suffered an early loss with an hamstring injury to playmaker Dimitri Payet, to make their job that much more hard.

Then it will be on to next season, sorting out Griezmann's future, and targeting the Champions League final, which will be played in their own Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

Griezmann, brought up in Macon, just 70 kilometres from Lyon, scored once in each half, his lethal finishes coming either side of Marseille losing Dimitri Payet to injury, the French team's captain coming off in tears.

And they showed their support to Jurgen Klopp's side by chanting: "Liverpool, Liverpool, Liverpool" in the streets after the game.

"We're very happy. We've been working very well these past years", Simeone said after the match.

Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods to pair up in golf tourney
Manning also is not the same guy he was in 2009, though this may actually play to the team's favor this time around. Sure, Peyton is retired and Tiger's best days on the golf course are behind him but it's still pretty cool.

"I have a great communion with my players and I can be at home or in the hotel but they will still play the same way".

Payet was replaced by Maxime Lopez in the 31st minute as he limped off the pitch. "We also missed him from set-pieces as Atletico, if they do ever concede, sometimes concede from set-pieces".

"He's given us a lot, he gave us a leap in quality as a team".

Late on in the game, the ball again went out of play for a throw-in when Spurs flop Clinton N'Jie got his technique all ring and defied the laws of physics with his effort. In matches like this, you have to take risks. We came close in two Champions League finals, a year ago in the semi-finals.

His disappointment may have been compounded by the fact Didier Deschamps will name his France squad for the World Cup on Thursday, with Payet hoping to be involved.
