Free Europa League final live streaming and highlights will be provided exclusively by BT Sport on Wednesday night as Marseille and Atletico Madrid collide at Lyon's Groupama Stadium.

Atletico Madrid defeated Olympique de Marseille in the Europa League final in Lyon on Wednesday, and they did so despite the club's manager Diego Simeone watching from the stands because he is in the middle of serving a touchline ban in UEFA.

Marseille was lost without the silky playmaker pulling the strings in midfield, and Atletico took complete control after he went off in the 31st minute.

Antoine Griezmann has had a hand in more goals than any other Atlético Madrid player in European competition this season (10 - six goals and four assists), including a goal and an assist in their 2-1 aggregate win over Arsenal in the semi-finals.

Andre Zambo Anguissa miscontrolled a pass from goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and Griezmann was never going to miss after being played in by Koke.

The French side had the first chance of the game inside the first five minutes when Payet slipped a ball into Valere Germain, who managed to side-foot his attempt across the bar from ten yards out. "This was my dream, to win with my team and I've been able to achieve it".

Ramadan fasting to begin on Thursday, Saudi says

Marseille lost 3-0 to Atletico Madrid, an emphatic defeat which overshadowed the French club's bright start.

That paved the way for Griezmann to take centre stage, Marseille failing to truly threaten again until the latter stages when substitute Konstantinos Mitroglou hit the post with a header. However, they quickly refocused their campaign around this relatively achievable target.

Atletico were practically gifted the first of their three goals in the 3-0 win. "That first trophy was the key to everything that came later". But if he does leave this summer, he will at least go having delivered the team major silverware.

Team Diego Simone scored three unanswered goals in the gate "Marseilles" and became the victor of the Europa League of the season 2017-2018.

Rudi Garcia's men found it hard to carve out an opening against one of Europe's meanest defences and their chances further depleted when they lost Dimitri Payet to injury in the first half. Conceding a second so soon after half-time realistically meant all was over bar the singing, which continued right until the end. "I have confidence in him being in charge", Simeone said.
