EUROPA: Marseille players’ll write their names in history books -Payet

May 16 23:00 2018

Spanish club Atletico Madrid and French side, Marseille face off in the Europa League final on Wednesday with both boasting notable European pedigree.

Simeone expects a tough game against the French team.

Payet’s incisive defence-splitting passes create chances galore for Marseille, as does his quality delivery from set-pieces. “Of course their free kicks and corners are risky, but they have many more weapons. They have very offensive minded wing backs and they’re well prepared”. Griezmann has 27 goals and 13 assists in all competitions this season.

Belying their status as underdogs, Mrseille started pretty well and could have taken the lead in the opening few minutes via former Newcastle midfielder Florian Thauvin.

Payet thinks he knows how to.

“Whenever we come to these situations we need to approach it with humility, hard work. But I think we have the attacking quality to do so”, the France worldwide said. “We have won more than we expected, but we are continuing to rebuild the club under a plan that will take several seasons”.

Atletico are viewed as the favorites in this game, in part due to their recent big-game experience.

Marseille, who are playing at the grounds of their big rival Lyon, are in their first European final since 2005.

Payet hailed the Marseille supporters for helping carry the team so far.

‘I have never modified something besides I’ve been injured much less and when you haven’t any accidents it is should simpler to play and really feel higher on the pitch’. “The only thing we have in mind is winning”. We’re feeling lots of emotions, but also humility.

Of the 14 Europa finals since 2004 we only have one occurrence of the higher placed team in our rankings losing the final in 90 minutes – and that was the closest we’ve had two teams graded for a final in that time, when Rangers lost to an improving Zenit in 2008.

EE mobile customers will also be able to stream the game for free, thanks to a free subscription plan recently announced by the network. Simeone was charged with insulting a match official and improper conduct.

Someone’s assistant German Burgos will be in the dugout. “He has such quick feet and the head to go with it”, he said.

“Florentino called to wish me good luck and said we’ll see each other in the UEFA Super Cup”, he revealed. “What’s going through his mind is doubtlessly going through mine”.

“He will always ask for the best of me and make me do my best, and I’ll always be there to help him and help win the games”.

Diego Simeone’s side are second in La Liga but have struggled lately.
