  • LIVE - UEFA Europa League Final: Olympique de Marseille v Atlético de Madrid SAD

Two goals from Antoine Griezmann either side of half time, and a third late on from their captain, Gabi, sealed Atletico Madrid's third Europa League crown in just eight years against Marseille on Wednesday evening.

Atletico Madrid's opening goal against Marseille in Wednesday's Europa League final didn't just feature a good finish and a disgusting defensive mistake.

"The scoreline is harsh but the better team won".

Adil Rami half-volleyed wide shortly afterwards and Payet fired straight at Oblak (18) as Marseille looked most likely to break the deadlock until Atletico did.

Substitute Kostas Mitroglou almost set up a grandstand finale, his header coming off Jan Oblak's post, before Gabi's low drive in the 89th minute made it 3-0. "We conceded against the run of play and couldn't get back into the game".

Atletico Madrid players celebrate with the trophy after winning the Europa League. "That first trophy was the key to everything that came later". He has also provided 15 assists. "I'm going to be grateful to this team always". Atleti's Antoine Griezmann did this celebration after each of his two goals scored on Tuesday.

Payet said: "Those who won the Champions League in 1993 are still heroes because nobody else has done it since".

Marseille had been thoroughly beaten and could only salute their fervent supporters, who outnumbered the Spanish fans in the 59,000-capacity Groupama Stadium and let off flares and firecrackers at the start and end of the game.

But then reality settled in - with both Mandanda's pass and Anguissa's first touch just not of the standard for a major final.

It remains to be seen how severe Payet's injury is.

Marseille lost its third straight European final after coming up short in the UEFA Cup final - as the tournament was formerly known - in 1999 and 2004.
