Olympique Marseille vs Atletico Madrid Prediction 16 May 2018

Tournament: UEFA Europa League
Location: Groupama Stadium
Match date: 16.05.2018 at 19:45

On May 16 2018 at 19:45 at the Groupama Stadium in Decines-Charpieu in the forthcoming final of the UEFA Europa League Olympique Marseille are playing against Atletico Madrid.

Marseille took the second place in their Europa League group and they outplayed Baraga, Athletic, Leipzig and Salzburg on their way to the final of the competition. That wasn’t actually a very difficult way and yet they successfully overcame it. Now they are going to play the final match and they are considered to be the outsiders before it. Last time Marseille made it to the final of the Euro Cup was in the year 2004 and they lost to Valencia 0:2 than. They, probably think that it’s time for them to come back and win this time. In case the players of the attack will be in great conditions, they will be able to cause a lot of problems to the defense of Atletico.

As for Atletico, they have really unusual stats. They participated in the finals of the Euro Cups every second season since the year 2010. After the victories in the finals of the Europa League in 2010 and 2012 they lost to Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League in 2014 and 2016. Soon there will be another important match for them. In the way to that match Atletico outplayed Copenhagen, Lokomotiv, Sporting Lisboa and Arsenal from London. They made it to the Europa League this season as they were kicked-off from the Champions League group where they gained less points compared to Rome and Chelsea. After the failures they had in the current season it will probably be nice for them to outplay Marseille and win the title.

The game will be played in Lyon which will probably give some advantage to Marseille. Yet, the great performance of the fans may be not so helpful in the match against Atletico Madrid, who are extremely experienced in the Euro Cups. They will have their manager disqualified and yet we really don’t think that it will influence their performance. Atletico will probably choose to counterattack and concentrate on defense after the goal they score. It seems to us that Atletico are going to win during the main time this time.
