Filipe Luis may get a chance to play in the left back position in front of Lucas Hernandez after recovering fully from injury. Jose Gimenez and Vitolo are equally dubious for the La Liga giants, although they are flying with the squad to France, and players like Stefan Savic and Angel Correa prepare to become substitutes for both players if needed.
Marseille will not show any defensive game in this match. They know that Atletico Madrid are a good team in defense, and the counter-attack scheme will not work efficaciously for Marseille. Therefore, they will try to win control of the ball and dominate the attack in this match. The role of attacking players like Florian Thauvin will be needed by Marseille to break the defensive defense of Los Rojiblancos.
As the spearhead of Atletico Madrid, Antoine Griezmann will obviously be his team's main hope to give them victory in this match. As a world-class player, the mental strength of Antoine Griezmann is no doubt to go through such a big game this time. The Frenchman also wants to prove his sharpness ahead of the World Cup tournament Russia this year. If able to bring Atletico Madrid to the Europa League title this season, Griezmann will have a good start ahead of the World Cup.
Prediction of the lineup arrangement of Marseille vs Atletico Madrid
Pele; Amavi, Guztavo, Rami, Sarr; Sanson, Lopez; Ocampos, Payet, Thauvin; Germain.
Atletico Madrid :
Oblak; Juanfran, Savic, Godin, Luis; Correa, Gabi, Nniguez, Koke; Costa, Griezmann.
Marseille has a squad strength that is not inferior to Atletico Madrid in this match. But Diego Simeone's men have been more experienced at the top of European competition in recent years, and they will be the favorites in this match.
Prediction score: Marseille 0-2 Atletico Madrid
