It is Marseille's fifth European final overall - they lost the 1991 European Cup final on penalties to Red Star Belgrade, before disappointing defeats in the UEFA Cup final to Parma in 1999 and Rafael Benitez's Valencia in 2004.

Atletico Madrid is no stranger to European finals, playing in its fifth since 2010 (two Champions League, three Europa League).

"It was a shame for Arsenal as they have a good squad and good quality, but Atletico are a great team", said Pires.

"We know this determination, this experience that Atletico Madrid has, With a coach who remains a leader, who has been passing the same message to his players for years". The Vicente Calderon was the setting and the Champions League group stages the reason for the meeting between tonight's finalists. "We need to take the game where we want it and do damage where we can".

"We can go down in history and leave an even bigger mark on this club", Payet added, as excitement builds around France.

"Atletico against Marseille, Payet against Griezmann, Rudi Garcia against Diego Simeone, and the fans...it should be a great final".

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, which was covered by uefa.com, Simeone said: "I wasn't on the sidelines for the Arsenal game and it's the same tomorrow".

It is Griezmann's first major title as an Atletico player, and a fitting way to bow out if he leaves at the season's end, with Barcelona tipped as his next destination. It will, however, have to do so without its talismanic manager Diego Simeone on the touchline, who is serving a touchline ban.

The game starts at 8:45 p.m. (CLT). Simeone needs to improve on his record in finals, but his approach will be difference because the expectation is now on his shoulders.

Propelled by the fervent supporters who had waited 14 years to reach another European final, the French side created two early chances to take a surprise lead but both striker Germain and defender Adil Rami missed the target. "As soon as we got knocked out of the Champions League, we immediately embraced this competition", Simeone said.

The governing body still haven't learned their lesson, despite widespread condemnation of delays to the 2016 UEFA Champions League and 2017 Champions League finals because of pre-match performances from Alicia Keys and the Black Eyed Peas, respectively.

"I'm sad not to be able to be on the sidelines, but I have full confidence in (assistant) German Burgos".
