  • LIVE - UEFA Europa League Final: Olympique de Marseille v Atl├ętico de Madrid SAD

Both teams have met just twice in all European competitions in 2008/2009 Champions' League group stage with Atletico Madrid defeating Marseille 2-1 in France while the second leg at the Stade Velodrome ended goalless as Marseille finished in the third place. The French side will have a home-field advantage as the final is played at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, less than a four-hour drive from Marseille. Simeone, who will watch from the stands because of suspension, said: "They have a coach who has so many options at his disposal and a lot of nous".

"We'll be excited, up for it, but also tense".

West Ham won't be due a charge from Marseille for Dimitri Payet reaching or doubtlessly profitable the Europa League closing due to an absence of clause in his contract.

Marseille are aiming to win their second European trophy, 25 years after beating AC Milan in the inaugural Champions League final in 1993. Playing Atletico is a big event for us. He was consoled by his team-mates as well as worldwide colleague Griezmann, who may fear Payet's name will be missing when France announce their World Cup squad on Thursday.

Marseille are also battling for a top-three finish in the French league, and the fear is that fatigue will be a factor as they try to break down Atletico's brilliant defence.

Hopefully Hollywood sticks to their new rule that if you act like a jerk at work, you're going to be fired. "I left", she wrote . She began with a tweet on late Saturday, May 12 in which she called out how tabloids had been printing lies about her.

Of course, this has importance beyond simply bringing the Europa League trophy to Marseille (or to any French side, for that matter) for the first time.

Lyon's hooligan fringe has been active in European matches for several seasons, and police will be on alert for potential clashes with Marseille's feisty ultras in the city.

Not only do they have plenty of attacking firepower with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Kevin Gameiro and Diego Costa, but they're strong at the back, ranking first in La Liga play this season with just 20 goals allowed.
