Europa League Final 2018: how and where to watch

Europa League Final 2018: how and where to watch

The importance of the Europa League is something that has come under continued scrutiny in recent times, but for Marseille it can provide a route back to relevance - and perhaps a foundation to become a true force once again.

While Madrid boasts big-name forwards in Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa, not to mention Fernando Torres and Kevin Gameiro on the bench, Marseille does not have a recognized top-class striker. Marseille now enjoys significant financial backing and the time is right to stop harping on about past glory and deliver another trophy.

They can avoid that tense scenario by finding a way through a formidable Atletico defence and clinching not just a shock triumph and a European trophy, but also an immediate place in next season's Champions League group stage. With the backing of American owner Frank McCourt, Marseille have flourished under former Lille and Roma coach Rudi Garcia, with an exciting side playing aesthetically pleasing football and challenging for Champions League qualification in a redeveloped and regularly raucous Stade Velodrome. 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 the 3-3 Ligue 1 draw with Guingamp last Friday as a precaution after picking up a muscle problem.

"The fact of having reached the final minimises the feeling of knowing that my career is over".

Marseille have won only four of their 15 UEFA competition matches against Spanish opposition, losing eight.

She knows the eyes of the world are on her. "She knows she has a big support base behind her and that's all she needs to know". Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister Samantha Markle took the blame for her father's participation in the photos.

Victory against Atletico on Wednesday will make them the first French club ever to win the Europa League (no French club won it when it was called the UEFA Cup).

Key to their success has been the switch from a 4-3-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1. "He will be dictating the pace of his team with his play-making", Simeone said Tuesday at a news conference.

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

Where can I watch the Europa League final? "It will be a lovely game, a handsome final". I see similarities between the two teams.

"They're a risky team offensively. Their full backs are also very unsafe".
