Atletico Madrid star Griezmann: Simeone just like Ferguson

Atletico are playing in their third European final in five years, having lost the Champions League finals of 2014 and 2016, after winning the Europa League under his guidance in 2012. "It will be a tense game with a lot of friction".

Considering the strength of Atletico Madrid's squad and their recent form, we think they're excellent value to take the trophy on Wednesday, so we're backing them to get the win and also opting for an Atletico Madrid Win to Nil alongside a 1-0 correct score predictions. "For a player, when Barca want you, it makes you feel important, but he knows that he is important for us and that we want him here".

Marseille's Dimitri Payet referred to opposition's Antoine Griezmann as "Mister Plus" owing to his high output while scoring and creating goals.

"What Simeone is doing for the club is historic", Griezmann said in an interview with UEFA. It'll be a really great final.

Marseille face a daunting task in Wednesday's showpiece at the Groupama Stadium, with Diego Simeone's men the favourites to lift the trophy in Lyon, Griezmann a substantial reason for that status.

Marseille needed extra-time to edge past Salzburg in the last round but before that they dispatched RB Leipzig with a 5-2 win in the second leg, while they knocked out Spanish opposition in the Last 16 - beating Athletic Bilbao both home and away.

At the time of the Last 32 draw we mentioned how Spanish teams have dominated this competition and that Atletico were the team to back. We've proven that we could overcome some steep challenges. "But I think we have the attacking quality to do so", the France worldwide said.

Antoine Griezmann is the danger man for Atleti (who lost to Real Madrid in both the 2014 and 2016 UCL finals) with the French worldwide striker looking to end the season on a high back in his homeland, while Diego Costa will be sniffing around for goals, and trouble, as per usual... He was consoled by his team-mates as well as global colleague Griezmann, who may fear Payet's name will be missing when France announce their World Cup squad on Thursday.

"Marseille have had a great season, be it in the league or in Europe".

"This is the 25th anniversary of the only win of a French team in the Champions League". "We have won more than we expected, but we are continuing to rebuild the club under a plan that will take several seasons".

A spirited Marseille team gave it their all, but Atletico were just too streetwise and also just too good.

Payet has called on his team mates to write their names in the history books saying: "Those who won the Champions League in 1993 are still heroes because nobody else has done it since".
