Athletico Madrid Dominates Marsielle As They Win Europa League Title

Atletico Madrid charged for far-right banner at Europa final

"It is a dream for me to win a title".

Griezmann struck again four minutes after the break, before Gabi sealed the win and the celebrations began.

Griezmann has scored 29 goals this season, with the Europa League crown his second trophy at Atletico since arriving from Real Sociedad in 2014.

As noted by BBC Sport, ongoing speculation continues to link Barcelona with a swoop for the 27-year-old, with the Catalan giants looking to bolster their attacking options further this summer it seems.

"I was determined to take the opportunity to win one tonight". "I want to enjoy the present. I owe a lot to Simeone and my team-mates". He's played three finals with us and won two.

"We let our chance go in the first half. But above all, I'd like to remind everyone of our team's incredible journey during the tournament", said former Los Angeles Dodgers owner McCourt, who purchased Marseille in October 2016. "In the second half they raised their level and the best team won".

Griezmann doubled the advantage less than five minutes after the interval, Koke providing the assist for a clever dinked finish for the France forward. "This is a reward for all the work I have put in, the suffering". "Whatever he decides I'll be happy because he has given us his life".

Griezmann slotting coolly into the bottom left corner in the 21st minute after being set up by midfielder Gabi's first-time pass. Marseille's woeful defending contributed, as midfielder Zambo Anguissa failed to control a casual pass out from goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and the loose ball bounced straight to Gabi.

Atletico Madrid veteran Fernando Torres said that the Europa League final victory with his boyhood club was more emotionally satisfying than winning the World Cup with Spain or the Champions League with Chelsea.

Perhaps, perhaps. But he didn't and thereafter it was all Atletico as Marseille suffered the hammer blow of losing skipper Dimitri Payet to injury on the half-hour mark. "We had a chance in the Champions League and it wasn't to be, but this time it was my turn", said the striker, who had not previously won a major trophy with the club.
