PREVIEW: Marseille out to deny Atletico in Europa League final

Marseille vs. Atletico Madrid in UEFA Europa League final: Live updates, TV channel, how to watch online

Though the main prize for winning the Europa League is a place in next season's Champions League, Marseille coach Rudi Garcia is still keen to chase the history of becoming the first French side to lift the trophy.

Marseille midfielder Dimitri Payet could be doubtful for the World Cup after limping off injured in the Europa League final against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

The European slate for the season wraps up on May 26 with the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine. "Because we need him, and he knows that we all want him to stay".

Atletico have one more fixture this season, however, with Marseille awaiting in the Europa League final at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Wednesday night.

UEFA Cup runners-up in 1998/99 and 2003/04, Marseille have reached the UEFA Europa League final for the first time in four attempts. No French team has ever won this prestigious cup and the second-placed LaLiga side will do everything in their power to make sure the status quo remains. A frightful giveaway off a simple pass from Mandanda out of the back allowed Griezmann to slot home on a 1-v-1, giving Atletico Madrid the lead. It will, however, have to do so without its talismanic manager Diego Simeone on the touchline, who is serving a touchline ban.

Brad Stevens shrugs off lack of COY votes from peers
According to a Boston.com report , Casey was one of eight coaches around the league that were nominated. He should have got a vote. "From our standpoint, I feel like it's been a lot of fun", he said.

In the United States, the match is scheduled to start at 2:45 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1.

Atletico's manager Diego Simeone said he expected a hard game.

A spot in the 2018-19 Champions League could very well be on the line for Rudi Garcia's squad, as they now trail Lyon by one point with one match remaining for the final UCL qualifying spot in Ligue 1. Moreover, none of those finals saw as big a difference between the two sides as we have here.

He is the French league's top playmaker this season with 13 assists and had three goals and seven assists in the Europa League, starring for Marseille in the quarterfinal and semifinal.

"They are very solid and have the best defensive record in Spain but they are unsafe in attack too", he said. "As soon as we got knocked out of the Champions League, we immediately embraced this competition", Simeone said. His stand-in, German Burgos, isn't a man to be messed with. "We've known each other all our lives and we have a similar vision of football", Simeone said. "I have confidence in him being in charge".
