    I guess Edo was too busy with the CL game to worry about this one.

    So Atletico clear favorites or do you see Marseille with the "big" upset?

    IDK, I think I recall some Arsenal fans (or maybe just one) saying they wouldn't even watch the Europa if Arsenal was in it because it was so meaningless. I can't remember exactly if it was just one or if it was him or not.

    This situation is getting even more strange.

    Not only are Cup champions might not be allowed but the 6th place or even 7th place team might not be allowed either.

    Sounds like UEFA wants to choose which team will be the 6th from Russia.

    Maybe this needs to be stickied rather than the PL final round and the fantasy season.

    I predict we will have a superb final and hope for the upset. How many fans will both teams have more or less?

    Gonna have to pull for Atletico because of the repercussions for Czech Europe entrants if Marseilles doesn't end up making the CL through the league

    Atletico has been in enough finals. Someone else's turn to take their chance and win one.

    Germain should have scored. No excuse to miss the target from 10 meters on such a golden chance.

    I hope Atletico loses purely because of how stupid that celebration dance was.

    Do you know that its a celebration from Fortnite? I find it pretty funny.

    Also, Vrsaljko racking up another yellow.

    The Marseille tactics are a complete mystery to me.

    Why attempt to make the pitch as small as possible when playing against an excellently organised defensive team? Every time they get the ball in the Atlético half, the ball is a magnet to all Marseille players and they all converge on the side of the pitch with the ball. They need to give themselves space to breathe if they are going to have any hope.

    I thought the FN celebration was amusing enough the first time round, but his insistence on repeating it for the second goal? :eyeroll:

    Not sure why I got a soft spot for Marseille. Unfortunately AM are too good. Would need a lot of luck to turn this around.

    2-0
    2 chances for Atletico (one gifted by OM)
    2 chances for OM (Germain missing the goal all alone from 10 meters and Mitroglou's post)

    And someone here said a player wasn't that great even when he was scoring.
    Duh...
