Griezmann’s Atletico goodbye? – Marseille Vs Ateltico Madrid, Parc Olympique Lyonnais, 7.45pm Wednesday, May 16th.
Both the title and a spot in next season’s Champions League will be on the line in Lyon on Wednesday with the Europa League Final.
Since becoming the only French club to win the Champions League back in 1993, Marseille are on their hunt for their first major continental prize in 15 years. Atletico on the other hand, are seeking to claim the trophy for the third time and first since 2012. The two go head to head in what promises to be an enthralling match as both teams are blessed with a abundance of attacking talent.
‘Home advantage’ lies with Marseille, unfortunately for the French side its their fierce rivals, Lyon, who will be hosting the final. Marseille currently lie in 4th position in the league with one game to spare, one place short of qualifying for next years Champions League, making victory tomorrow night all that more important.
However it’s the sports worst kept secret as Antoine Griezmann looks to play his last game for the club before joining FC Barcelona before the World Cup begins. After four years with the club his first trophy with Atleti would more than likely be his last. The courted attacker, who was born and grew up just 60 km from Lyon will move to Barcelona for a reported fee of €100m.
Lyon, the club where he was told he was too small, and showed no belief he’d ever make it as a professional footballer. Now he returns as one of Europe’s greatest strikers but he’s no longer a kid. He turned twenty-seven this year and without a major senior trophy to his name. Time is ticking. The perfect opportunity awaits.
Griezmann to fire Atletico to victory, trust us!
