Europa League Final: Preview & Prediction

France coach Didier Deschamps has postponed the announcement of his World Cup squad until after the Europa League final to help the French players involved in the game.

The Argentinian tactician was forced to watch Friday's 1-0 victory over the Gunners from the Wanda Metropolitano stands and that game will serve as the first of four under his suspension.

The French club led 2-0 after the first leg in Marseille and few expected the young Salzburg squad to overcome that deficit, but the hosts here on Thursday scored twice - through Amadou Haidara and an own goal from Bouna Sarr in the second half to force extra time, reports Efe.

Salzburg continued to push and they were rewarded with a second goal in the 65th minute.

"They have a great atmosphere, Marseille is a city that lives for football". "We're obviously outsiders against Atletico, in France, in Lyon, at home for this final". They've even taken on a new business venture by earning ownership of the Red Bull company after beating both RB Leipzig and RB Salzburg - just kidding. - Marseille are the first side to go through to a European final after winning the tie with a goal in extra-time since Atletico Madrid versus Liverpool in 2009-10.

Fearing violence could mar the Europa League final, Lyon has filed a formal lawsuit for incitement to criminal damage amid growing tensions with rival French club Marseille.

Atletico Madrid is going to stick with their tried and true "Simeoneball" method (that's not a real thing, don't quote me on that), and should end up with another trophy for their cabinet at the end of the day.
