#UELfinal: Atletico Madrid Win 3rd Trophy In Nine Years

Atletico Madrid have won their 3rd Europa League trophy after sweeping aside Marseille in Lyon in nine years.

France forward Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring by punishing Andre Zambo Anguissa’s poor touch to coolly slot home, then dinked in a casual second.

Captain Gabi drilled in the third goal late on as Atletico again lifted the trophy they also won in 2010 and 2012.

The outcome could have been different had Marseille forward Valere Germain taken an early chance, before Griezmann’s lethal finishing allowed Atletico to take control.

Marseille skipper Dimitri Payet, an injury doubt before the game, lasted just half an hour before hobbling off in tears.
