Marseille vs Atlético Madrid Today’s Soccer Prediction
Very few would have bet at the beginning of the season, and yet Olympique de Marseille is indeed in the lineup of this Europa League final! Authors of a season that will be remembered, the Marseillais are 90 minutes of supreme happiness. If the prospect of losing in this final and finishing 4th in Ligue 1 – and therefore not to participate in the next Champions League – is still present, OM has everything to gain in this final! All France football – or almost – believes in it and will be behind the Phocaeans, but the opponent remains a valuable European football, certainly one of the top 4-5 teams on the continent in the last 5 years. Atlético Madrid is an ogre favorite, but at kickoff, it will be 11 against 11 and this final will be contested!
The offensive potential of OM is sufficiently provided and talented to score against any defense. Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin are especially on an exceptional end of season!
Since the beginning of March and the two defeats at the Park against PSG (0-3), OM has played 16 games and scored at least once in 14 of them!
If we consider that Atlético Madrid will play away, it is worth noting that Colchoneros have always conceded at least 1 goal in the Europa League this season on the road, whether in Copenhagen, Lokomotiv Moscow, Sporting Lisbon or Arsenal.
Atlético Madrid is obviously favorite in this final and it would be a feat to see OM finish without conceding a goal. The Marseillais have conceded at least 1 goal in 16 of their last 18 games …
Atlético will also have 1 day of recovery and less, the men of Diego Simeone having had a trip to Getafe to manage this Saturday with their team-type, while the Marseillais had played Friday in Guingamp and spared Dimitri Payet.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Marseille vs Atlético Madrid
This final is far from being played in advance, and it would be surprising not to see at least 1 goal on both sides after 90 minutes.
