LIVE - UEFA Europa League Final: Olympique de Marseille v Atlético de Madrid SAD

Marseille vs. Atletico Madrid in UEFA Europa League final: Live updates, TV channel, how to watch online

Simeone has guided Atletico to plenty of success since becoming manager in 2011 and leads them out in the Europa League final against Marseille tonight (7.45pm).

Marseille is the only French side to have won the Champions League in 1993, but since then has lost twice in the UEFA Cup final, as the Europa League was formerly known.

This will be the first meeting between Marseille and Atlético Madrid in European competition since 2008/09, when the Spaniards went unbeaten against them in the Champions League group stage (W1 D1).

Marseille have enjoyed a strong campaign at home and overseas this season. A 2-0 win against Roma at the Wanda Metropolitano proved to be the only victory of their Champions League campaign, and they were left to settle for third after a closing 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. Hammarby look likely to register their first win over Daniel Andersson's men since 2009.

Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa scored in each leg of the semi-final, and their combination of movement and strength will be too much for a Marseille defence breached 12 times in the tournament.

"Griezmann's future depends on what happens on Wednesday I think, what he wants is to win trophies and I was sad when I heard about the news about him", club captain Gabi Fernandez told Spanish radio on Monday.

Army also pressed helicopters into service during the search operation which entered the second day on Tuesday, the official said. He was admitted to the military hospital after he was hit by a bullet, but succumbed to his injuries.

The French side reached their first European final since 2005 when they lost in the Uefa Cup to Valencia. They're two big clubs going head to head, two institutions, but OM have the means to win. The France worldwide was involved in three of his side's four goals in a 4-1 triumph in the opening fixture, scoring one and assisting another two.

"They can play in different ways", Simeone said. We're feeling lots of emotions, but also humility.

"We know that Atletico stand in our way and that it will be a very hard mission, but that would make it an even greater achievement if we managed to win the trophy".

Is the Europa League final online? With their financial difficulties seemly behind them, and a solid core to build around, Marseille can use this final to showcase their club. "He will always ask for the best of me and make me do my best, and I will always be there to help him and help win the games", the French global added.

"They are very solid and have the best defensive record in Spain but they are unsafe in attack too", he said.
