Coach Rudi Garcia surpassed expectations just by leading Marseille into European competition this season, yet now they have reached the final after a run that started in the third qualifying round last July.
The 31-year-old playmaker is about to star within the closing towards Atletico Madrid in Lyon on Wednesday night time after leaving the Hammers in 2017. They have two ways to qualify for next season's Champions League - by winning this tournament or by finishing third in France, where they are now fourth and a point behind.
"We know each other inside out and we understand the football in the same way".
Marseille have been involved in four previous major UEFA competition finals, while Atlético Madrid will be competing in their ninth - and fifth in the past nine seasons.
Victory against Atletico on Wednesday will make them the first French club ever to win the Europa League (no French club won it when it was called the UEFA Cup).
Atletico have already assured themselves of a place in next season's Champions League by finishing in the top four in La Liga, but Marseille, now in the Europa League spot in Ligue 1 with one game remaining, would guarantee their passage by winning the final. The final for the port city club is a glamor clash and there is a general feeling at there that given the pedigree of Atletico, they go into the game with nothing to lose. "He will be dictating the pace of his team with his play-making", Simeone said Tuesday at a news conference. "Their full backs are also very unsafe".
Garcia said: "This year we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the only time a French team has won the Champions League".
"We know experience is on their side". It will be an intense game and we will take it to where it suits us. We are similar teams so I think it will be a tense and high-pressured game. "We're also strong on free kicks".
"We are a team that works a lot and I trust German's presence as the head of the team". "I have complete confidence in him".
One thing Marseille do have on their side is experience, with Thauvin and Payet having played in the Premier League while Luiz Gustavo and Adil Rami also have plenty of big matches under their belts.
"We'll give everything to win", center half Diego Godin said.
You look at Texas and NC State and some others, and they have guys who have shot 64 and 65, and we haven't had that yet. Playing on their home course, the Sooners (-8) hold a one-stroke lead over fast-charging Pepperdine (-7).
