Marseille vs Atletico Madrid | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The first European trophy of the season is at stake on Wednesday night at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in the Europa League final. The match will be contested between Marseille of France and Atletico Madrid of Spain. With both team searching for their first European trophy for many years, there is sure to be a great atmosphere inside the stadium and Dutchman, Björn Kuipers has been selected to referee this huge encounter.
Marseille were held to a 3-3 draw at Guingamp on the weekend and have dropped outside the Champions League places in Ligue 1. With only one match remaining in the league this season, their fate is now out of their own hands and the only way they can guarantee Champions League football next season is by winning this game.
Form has not been great for Marseille in recent weeks and they have won only one of their last 4 matches in all competitions. They lost 2-1 at Red Bull Salzburg in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final despite progressing in dramatic circumstances to the final. They have also been held to a draw at Angers and Guingamp in Ligue 1. While Marseille have been scoring goals, keeping them out has been a problem and they French club have conceded in 6 of their last 7 games in all competitions.
Atletico Madrid have secured their place in the Champions League for next season having defeated Getafe 1-0 away from home on the weekend. It was an important result for Diego Simeone’s team, who lost 2-0 at home against Espanyol the previous week.
However, the defeat to Espanyol is the only defeat suffered by Atletico Madrid in their last 6 games in all competitions and they will be feeling confident of winning this match against Marseille. Other than the rare slip-up at home against Espanyol, Atletico Madrid have been back to their usual selves in defence. They have conceded just 3 goals in their last 6 games and have kept 4 clean sheets, including the 1-0 win over Arsenal at home in the Europa League semi-final. Atletico Madrid have scored 17 and conceded only 4 goals in their 8 Europa League matches this season.
Head to Head
Marseille will be hoping experienced central defender Rolando recovers from injury in time for this game. If not, defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo may be forced to play at the back. Kostas Mitroglou is also a doubt and Valere Germain may be called upon in attack.
Atletico Madrid have doubts over Jose Gimenez and Vitolo and that could mean a place in the starting XI for Stefan Savic and Angel Correa. Sime Vrsaljko is available following suspension but Simeone may opt for the experienced Juanfran at right-back.
