Griezmann scored twice as Atletico beat Marseille 3-0 last night to lift the Europa League.

Gabi scored late on to confirm the result in a match that Diego Simeone's side controlled easily throughout.

Atletico's Argentine coach Diego Simeone, who was forced to watch from the stands following a sending off during the first leg of the semi-final against Arsenal, said that it had been a "challenging season".

And Griezmann effectively killed off the match with another classy strike at the start of the second half, dinking the ball into the back of the net over goalkeeper Steve Mandanda after Koke had sprung him in the Marseille area.

Atletico will face French club Marseille in the final to be held at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon, with kick-off set for 20:45 SA time. "To win you need to play well, experience helps you know what you need to do on the pitch but in the end it's still a game", he said. "With players at 100 percent we would have been able to compete more", he said.

The Cravings author later revealed that she and the "All of Me" singer, 39, were expecting a boy. But if there's anyone who is ready to grow their family, it's Chrissy and John.


The France star has been tipped to leave Atletico at the end of the season after four years in the Spanish capital, with speculation that he will join Barcelona. In spite of mostly being a passenger in the early days of the season, Griezmann finished with 29 goals and 13 assists in all competitions (a spectacular return of 6 goals and 2 assists in just 8 Europa League appearances).

"Now is not the time to talk about my future. I hope I can continue to win more trophies". They're two big clubs going head to head, two institutions, but OM has the means to win. "Physically he is in good shape and for him, it is important to win a title because he needs it, and that is the only thing that matters to him", veteran midfielder Gabi said ahead of the game.

A victory for Los Colchoneros in this game would see them equal Sevilla as the team to have won the Europa League on the most occasions (three). "It made us realise what the team was capable of, and five months ago a lot of the players were being seriously questioned".

"I have a great communion with my players and I can be at home or in the hotel but they will still play the same way", the 48-year-old manager added.
