Marseille vs Atletico Madrid

Europa League final Final

 

MAR vs ATL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Marseille and Atletico Madrid are vying for European glory as both these teams lock horns in the final of 2017-18 Europa League at Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Thursday.

Marseille fans finally have some reasons to cheer this season. Their team reached a European final for the first time since 2004 after beating Red Bull Salzburg in the semifinal, while their domestic campaign has brought decent success this season. The Les Olympiens are sitting at 4th in Ligue 1 heading into the last round of fixtures which will be played after the Europa final. with only 1 point separating them at Lyon at 3rd, there are chances that they could finish the campaign at 3rd and thus qualify for the Champions League next season.

However, a league position may not be required if Marseille win the Europa League as the winner will get an automatic place in the next season’s Champions League. So all we can say that the 1993 European Champions have had a good season irrespective of the result in the final.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, entered this campaign via the 3rd placed finish in the group stage of Champions League. They can be considered as a European specialist considering their performance in European competition in the last decade or so. The Rojiblancos have won two Europa Leagues, two Super cups, and also made two appearances in the final of the Champions League. So it’s been quite a successful few years for Atletico, and considering their quality and experience, they could be seen as a potential winner in this match.

MAR vs ATL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

After drawing 3-3 against Guingamp in the Ligue 1, Marseille have scuppered their chance of finishing in top-3 this season. Now their hopes of playing Champions League football next season depends on the results of the last round of fixtures or unless they win the Europa League. So they must be under some pressure, while Atletico Madrid have no such issues as they are guaranteed at least a 3rd placed finish.

However, Atletico are certainly carrying a favorite tag and it would only add the pressure of Diego Simeone’s team.

However, we are backing the Spanish outfit to thrive and win their 3rd Europa League crown.
