Atleti are hoping for a first European crown in six years

Diego Costa to score anytime @ 13/8 with Coral

Atletico Madrid face Marseille in Wednesday’s Europa League final having beaten Arsenal in the semi finals. It was a cruel way for Arsene Wenger to bow out of European competition as Gunners boss, but it proved once again just how ruthless and efficient Atleti have become under Diego Simeone, who is a lot of fans’ choice to replace Wenger as he leaves Arsenal after 22 years at the helm. It is unlikely that he will take over at the Emirates Stadium, but whatever happens at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer, Simeone will be desperate to grasp this opportunity of another European trophy, having lost out in Champions League finals against Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016. The Argentine did lead them to Europa League in 2012.

This tie will be far from easy, though, because Marseille have been in excellent goalscoring form and, with Florian Thauvin and Dimiri Payet in such scintillating form, Rudi Garcia’s men could cause an upset. But they were somewhat lucky to avoid an embarrassing exit at the hands of Red Bull Salzburg in the semi finals. Only a late goal by defender Rolando, who will miss the final through injury, booked their place in the Lyon showpiece, and they will have to up their game. Diego Costa proved the difference against Arsenal and we think he will get on the scoresheet.

Atleti are rightly favourites for this game, and if they can keep Thauvin and Payet quiet, they should take the trophy. They are priced at 29/20 to win to nil with Coral, but even if they do manage to breach the defence, Costa and Antoine Griezmann have the quality to take the game by the scruff of the neck. Perhaps BTTS at 13/4 would prove good value.
