  • Fernando Torres Atletico de Madrid Europa League

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has warned not to take Europa League opponents Marseille lightly in Wednesday's final.

Simeone expects a tough game against the French team. "Now we have a fantastic chance to become the first to win the Europa League", Garcia said Tuesday at a news conference.

Marseille reached the final thanks to an extra time victor from defender Rolando, to squeeze past Red Bull Salzburg, 3-2 on aggregate.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid will head into this clash without their coach, Diego Simeone on the touchline, as he continues to serve a four-match ban following his dismissal against Arsenal in the semi-final encounter.

The match is the first of two opportunities Marseille will have to qualify for next season's Champions League, as they can still snatch third in Ligue 1.

"Last Man Standing" Moving to Fox Network
However, he didn't believe the lasting success behind " Last Man Standing " was exclusively based on Baxter's conservative values. She also revealed that the choice, surprisingly, "had nothing to do with Roseanne ".

Atletico lost in extra time to Real Madrid in the Champions League final of 2014, having been seconds away from victory in 90 minutes, and then lost on penalties to their city rivals in the final of the same competition two years later.

Atletico, who will participate in the International Champions Cup in Singapore and play Paris Saint-Germain on July 30 at the National Stadium, are looking to win the Europa League for the third time in nine seasons.

Garcia cleverly used the Europa League to get fringe players more involved, convincing them to think of themselves as important members of the squad.

"His hard work, dedication and talent have made him key for Atletico and the national team", said Simeone of the 26-year-old.

The Ligue 1 side face Atletico Madrid in Lyon in the Europa League final, with a place in the Champions League - the competition that brought both their greatest and darkest hour - up for grabs.

Forecast from a reputable bookmaker William Hill, with preference being given Atletico - factor on its victory is equal to 1.73, while the win of Marseille, is estimated at 5.00 and the draw is 3.50.

It's been a coming-of-age season for the attacker and starring in the Europa League final would be the ideal way to cap it. "No French side have ever won this trophy; it would be fantastic if we could be the first".

"It was the same thing against Arsenal, when German was in charge of the side", said Simeone.

Of the six previous occasions that a Spanish team has reached the Europa League final, only one of them has not gone on to win - however, that came in 2011/12 when Athletic Club were beaten by fellow Spanish side Atlético (0-3). After picking up a red card in Marseille's last game, Mandanda has to be on his game.
