Payet says he is fit to play in Europa League final

Dimitri Payet labelled Antoine Griezmann as Atletico Madrid's "mister plus" as Marseille prepare to try to stop him in the Europa League final.

Atletico Madrid: after being eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League was in the playoffs of the Europa League, where he was the Danish capital Copenhagen, Russian locomotive, the Portuguese sporting and English Arsenal.

Atletico have had plenty of heartbreak in European finals down the years, as have Marseille.

Frenchman Garcia has a decent record in management, having led his former club Lille to a league and cup double in 2011, while he also finished runner-up in Serie A with Roma in 2014 and 2015.

"The fact we played a day earlier against Guingamp is an advantage".

Key to their success has been the switch from a 4-3-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1. Although, it is Payet's teammate Florian Thauvin who has managed to better the overall contribution with 26 goals and 17 assists.

Their form has left Garcia hopeful Marseille can celebrate their Euro anniversary in style by making more history.

The Spanish outfit have appeared in two UEFA Europa League finals and won both of them, in 2010 and 2012.

He knows however, that it won't be easy. "For a player, when Barca want you, it makes you feel important, but he knows that he is important for us and that we want him here".

"The more he's scrapping, the better he plays", Griezmann says.

"I feel a lot better - yes, I feel I can play tomorrow", he told reporters. The team produced one win in four previous matches in all competitions and one defeat. "It's been shown before that anything's possible".

Simeone's sending-off in the first leg of the 2-1 semi-final triumph over Arsenal means he will be suspended for Wednesday's game.

However, he said his team would be in safe hands with his loyal assistant coach German "Mono" Burgos. Griezmann's future has dominated the build-up to this week's showpiece match in Lyon, with the striker widely expected to join Barcelona in the summer. But there's also Diego Costa, Kevin [Gameiro] and Fernando Torres, who could come on at some point.

"Experience is a little thing that can help but it's not going to have too much influence". "This is my eighth final with Atleti and I think the team is really motivated, we need to win".
