Will it be Atlético Madrid or Marseille who triumphs in the UEFA Europa League Final?

Two sides packed with talent are geared up for one huge showdown

The month of May can only mean one thing: unmissable European football finals live on BT Sport. So, ahead of the upcoming UEFA Champions League Final, why not whet your appetite with a mouth-watering UEFA Europa League Final from Lyon between Atlético Madrid and Marseille?


Atlético are one European football’s steeliest sides (what do you expect from a team managed by the utterly terrifying Diego Simeone?) and they made Arsène Wenger’s Arsenal farewell a trophyless one by defeating the Gunners 2-1 in the semi-finals.

But for all their hard-tackling defenders and irritating strikers (Diego Costa, obviously), the Spaniards also have one of European football’s silkiest stars in France international Antoine Griezmann to call upon as they look to win the competition for the third time in nine years.

However, they’ll be kept busy by a Marseille side that’s brimming with ooh la la. Led by twinkle-toed former West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet (above), the French club (who have lost two previous finals in the competition) is furnished with loads of top-drawer talent, including Brazil’s Luiz Gustavo, wily winger Florian Thauvin and hitman Lucas Ocampos.


Yep, this huge encounter is about as finely poised as you can get, and you can follow all of the drama live and exclusive on BT Sport.
