Olympique Marseille faces Atletico Madrid in the big final of Europa League. The game is going to be played at Wednesday night at the Groupama Stadium in Decines-Charpieu. Here are our asian soccer bets for this big final.
Atletico Madrid are trying to win their third Europa League trophy in three years. They are the big favourites to win this match, based on their squad and European experience in the last few years. The facts are speaking for themselves – this club won Europa League twice in the last 8 years and reached two times the UEFA Champions League final.
Diego Simeone’s team reached the Europa League final after eliminating Arsenal in the previous round. The first match in London ended with a 1-1 draw and a 1-0 win in Madrid was enough for Atletico to reach the final. Before this the Rojiblancos did the job against Sporting Lisboa, despite of losing the second leg in Portugal.
Olympique Marseille also had a very interesting road to the final. In the 1/4-finals the French team lost the first leg against RB Leipzig, but a thrilling 5-2 win in Marseille allowed them to reach the 1/2-finals. There Rudi Garcia’s team had to play extra time against Red Bull Salzburg. Both games ended with a 2-0 win for the home team, but on Austrian soil Marseille scored a crucial goal in the extra time to qualify for the final.
One thing is for sure – we shall expect a very good final between two classy teams. One would say that Atletico are the clear favourite here and it’s a fact. But make no mistake – Olympique Marseille won’t give up without a fight.
