Antoine Griezmann scored twice as Atletico Madrid swept aside Marseille in a three nil win in Lyon to win the Europa League for the third time in nine years.
France forward Griezmann opened the scoring by punishing Andre Zambo Anguissa’s poor touch to coolly slot home before he casually dinked in a second in the second stanza of the game.
Captain Gabi drilled in the third goal late on as Atletico again lifted the trophy they also won in
2010 and 2012.
The outcome could have been different had Marseille forward Valere Germain taken an early
chance, before Griezmann’s lethal finishing allowed Atletico to take control.
Marseille skipper Dimitri Payet, an injury doubt before the game and lasted just half an hour before hobbling off in tears.
Without their inspirational midfielder, the French side caused Atletico just one major scare as ex-Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou headed against the post.
