Europa final likely Griezmann's Atletico adieu

Europa final likely Griezmann's Atletico adieu

For Atletico, the match is another shot at putting things right in a decider after failing to get over the line in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals. The Brazilian-born striker returned this season and now has a chance to help the team win a third Europa League title in a decade.

Thauvin has been a goal machine for Marseille this season, and he has found the net in six of his last eight appearances.

Les Olympiens are aiming to be the first French team to win a major European competition since 1995/96, when PSG beat SK Rapid Wien in the Cup Winner's Cup. Los Rojiblancos have also been in strong form in the Europa League since dropping out of the Champions League earlier this season. The team produced one win in four previous matches in all competitions and one defeat.

"It's a great performance to have reached the final", Zidane said.

However, police noticed that both he and his mother had suffered minor but visible injuries, Krista Glover was arrested. At one point during the transport to jail, two deputies tried to loosen her handcuffs and she tried to get away.

Only around 11,500 Marseille fans will officially be in attendance in a crowd of close to 60,000 and those without tickets have been urged not to travel amid fears of trouble between them and fans of Lyon.

The two tangle Wednesday in Lyon, with Atleti's Antoine Griezmann returning to France to face one of the biggest clubs in Ligue 1.

Both teams are in for an epoch-making encounter as Atletico Madrid were the first club to win the UEFA Europa Cup after it was rebranded while Marseille was the first club to be proclaimed UEFA Champions League victor in 1993.

"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".

It will be launched later this year at a price of $999 (although those paying with Sirin's own cryptocurrency get a 10% discount). The blockchain is taking baby steps towards gaining mass acceptance and this seems to have caught with the fancy of phone makers.

Marcel: took second place in their Europa League group behind Salzburg, and ahead of the Portuguese and Turkish gimaraesh Konyaspor, and then in the playoffs went the Portuguese Braga, the Spanish athletic, German Leipzig and the same Salzburg.

"They can play in different ways", Simeone said.

The Spanish side are thus priced at (1.14) to either win or draw.

All of the attention will be on Lyon and the final in midweek, but the game at home against Eibar at the weekend is also potentially massive for the club. "We're going to need to seize control of the match". So while Simeone highlighted multiple attacking threats in this Marseille team, he clearly views Payet as the most risky. "They have very offensive minded wing backs and they're well prepared".

With any luck, Tiger Woods can be the next Webb Simpson
Simpson stalled with six straight pars before a first birdie of his round at the par-four seventh that took him to 20-under. Tiger Woods (69) finished T-11, while Justin Thomas, who like Woods came up from the cutline, carded 66 and finished T-11.
