Europa League: Atl├ętico Madrid beat Arsenal, advance to final

Marseille book their place in the Europa League final as Rolando scores in extra time

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone says tonight's clash with Arsenal is bigger than Antoine Griezmann's future.

- Marseille have reached their fifth major European final - more than twice that of any other French side.

French journalist Lois Elziere captured the scene in the early hours of May 4, as Marseille supporters sang and set off flares.

Marseille won the tie 3-2 on aggregate despite losing the second leg 2-1 after extra time. We need a great communion between the team and the people.

Wenger, in his 250th UEFA game as a club coach, announced two weeks ago he was standing down after almost 22 years with the London team.

A young Salzburg side quickly lost their direction, and save for one Fredrik Gulbrandsen penalty appeal and a Moanes Dabbur shot, Marseille were comfortable enough.

Amadou Haidara showed a cool touch in front of goal to put Salzburg ahead after 53 minutes at the Red Bull Arena, and a Bouna Sarr own-goal levelled the aggregate scoreline before Rolando rose to divert home a 116th-minute decider.

The equaliser was coming and it duly arrived in the 65th minute with Haidara again playing his part as Marseille's defence capitulated.

Prior to that, Valere Germain, brought in for the injured Konstantinos Mitroglou up top in Marseile's only change from the first leg, volleyed wide from a perfectly-weighted Payet pass at the end of a swift counter. However, their failure to score an away goal at the Stade Velodrome could prove costly. That goal gave the Austrians renewed hope and Pele had to be alert to beat away a venomous long-range strike from Brazilian centre-back Andre Ramalho.

Marseille almost hit back in the 73rd minute as Florian Thuavin rose well but saw his header crash against the crossbar following a delivery from Dimitri Payet.

Florian Thauvin's cross was blocked by the arm of defender Duje Caleta-Car with four minutes to go, but Karasev rejected Marseille's passionate appeals.

This is because Simeone was found guilty of insulting a match official during the first leg of Atletico's semi-final at Arsenal and has been slapped with a four-match ban by UEFA.
