Griezmann's fellow striker Diego Costa believes that Griezmann can write his name into the club folklore by firing Atletico to Cup glory. Atleti got by Arsenal in the semifinals but Marseille was taken to extra time by Red Bull Salzburg, scoring in the extra session to move on.

Their form has left Garcia hopeful Marseille can celebrate their Euro anniversary in style by making more history.

Atletico Madrid is second in the La Liga table and won their last domestic league game against Getafe and with one game to end the season, they have already booked their place for next season's Champions League.

Fernando Torres has claimed that spearheading Atletico Madrid to the Europa League final has minimised the feelings of "knowing that my career is over". There's a lot on the line in this one, more so for the French side, but both teams will be determined to potentially lift their only trophy of the season.

The 31-year-old was left out of Friday's 3-3 Ligue 1 draw with Guingamp as a precaution, having reportedly picked up a slight muscle problem.

Simeone will be in the stands for the final following his sending off in the first leg semi-final clash against Arsenal at the Emirates. Their previous campaigns ended in the round of 16 (2009/10), the group stage (2012/13) and the round of 32 (2015/16).

News broke in 2015 that about $700 million allegedly stolen from 1MDB had made its way into Najib's personal bank accounts. US investigators say Najib's associates stole $4.5 billion from the fund, some of which landed in Najib's bank account.


He said: "Twenty-five years ago Marseille became the first French club to win the Champions League and we have another chance to be first forever by becoming the first French club to win the Europa League".

Key to their success has been the switch from a 4-3-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1. Simeone needs to improve on his record in finals, but his approach will be difference because the expectation is now on his shoulders.

"I feel sad at not being there, but we have known each other for a lifetime and we understand football in the same way".

The former Argentina worldwide adds: "We are playing another final where there is a lot of emotion and excitement but, above all, humility".

The French club have previously appeared in four, losing three, the exception being their victory over AC Milan in the inaugural Champions League final in 1993. I see similarities between the two teams. They have offensive full-backs. "Their full backs are also very risky".
