Marseille vs Atletico Madrid, Europa League final: live score updates

Hello! Welcome to our liveblog for the Europa League final, a game between Marseille of France and Atletico Madrid of Spain. 

It’s not the Champions League – let’s not kid ourselves – but this is still a huge occasion and promises to be a really interesting match.
