OM will play Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Europa League final on 16 May in Lyon. It’s time to turn our focus toward the Spanish team.

Atlético Madrid qualified for the Europa League final by beating Arsenal (1-1 at the Emirates Stadium, 1-0 in the second leg at home). A Spanish club founded in 1903, Atlético Madrid qualified for the UEFA Champions League in the 2017-2018 season but finished third in Group C and Diego Simeone’s men were thus qualified for the Europa League. The Spaniards then successively eliminated FC Copenhagen, Lokomotiv Moscow, Sporting Lisbon and Arsenal.

The Madrilenians are regulars in the European finals after recently playing in two Champions League finals, in 2014 and in 2016, falling both times against Real Madrid.

Ten-time Spanish champion Atletico Madrid has two Europa League titles (2010, 2012), two UEFA Super Cups (2010, 2012) and a European Cup Winners' Cup (1962).

The Spanish club is currently second in La Liga behind FC Barcelona after 35 matches (22 wins, 9 draws, 4 defeats). Frenchman Antoine Griezmann represents the main attacking danger as the top scorer (19 goals) and Europa League (4 goals).

OM and the Madrid team have faced each other in the past on the European stage. In the 2008-2009 season, the Marseillais and Spaniards were in the group D of the Champions League. Atlético Madrid won their home match (2-1) and both side split the point in a draw at the Stade Vélodrome (0-0).
