Europa League Marseille – Atletico Madrid 16 May 2018

UEFA Europa League Marseille – Atletico Madrid Prediction

This is the grand finale of the 2nd most important club competition in Europe. Two teams with traditions at European level, with advantage for the colchoneros, accustomed until disputing, in the last closing years of the Champions League. To talk about Atlético de Madrid is to talk about Simeone’s team. The Argentinean leader and coach is an inescapable figure of the team, especially for the identity that I gave to this Atletico Madrid. The defensive solidity coupled with delivery, in each move, are two brand images that intersect with pragmatism, labeling Simeone’s team as “perfect” for this type of games, whether eliminatory or final! Also the quality and experience go hand in hand in the Madrilena team with players like Godín, Oblack, Juánfran, Felipe Luiz, Koke, Diego Costa, among others … Play this Europa League final in Groupama Stadium, on French soil, precisely the country of your opponent. Marseille are once again in the limelight of major competitions and have a talented team, especially in attack. Players such as Thauvin, Payet or Ocampos make the delight of the Gauls fans, and bring the hope of Marseille to win such an important title. Will the greater experience of the mattresses in this type of games prevail, or will the “home” factor push Marseille to the title?

Although the two teams are doing similar championships, since Atlético de Madrid is 2nd in La Liga and Marseille in the 4th in Ligue 1, Atlético have been more consistent.

Atletico de Madrid remains a very difficult team to defeat. Throughout the season he has only lost 9 games. But Marseille lost 12. But how many were in games to count for Uefa?

First there is to distinguish that Atletico Madrid played the Champions League where they lost only 1 game at home to Chelsea. And in the Europa League lost in Alvalade, but in a game where he could lose by the minimum margin.

Marseille lost 5 games in the Europa League, all as visitors, where the team has shown much more fragile. In this tie you play in France, but not in your field.

Prediction Marseille – Atletico Madrid

A Europa League final is something special and you can easily “dice” the statistics. The clubs have arrived at this game and everything behind is forgotten, being the total focus on winning this game. Although they are two teams full of talent, the ability of Atletico Madrid lies in that this talent is more balanced. The attacking quality is a lot in both teams, but Atletico Madrid can also be very strong defensively to the midfield, not having great difference in quality between sectors. Also the experience factor can be decisive. Weighing all this, as a sure bet: Atlético de Madrid wins the competition.
