Europa League: Atlético Madrid beat Arsenal, advance to final

Marseille will face Atletico Madrid in the Europa League final after grabbing a dramatic extra time victor against Red Bull Salzburg.

He served the first match of his suspension as Atletico completed a 2-1 aggregate win on Thursday. Arsenal's defence, fragile and nervous throughout, were particularly susceptible and this 1-0 defeat, 2-1 on aggregate, means Wenger's final season in charge will end with his team missing out on Champions League qualification for a second year in a row. They were in a similar position last round, down 4-1 after the away leg at Lazio, and were able to explode for four goals to advance in the home leg, in which Berisha earned an assist.

Marseille face Salzburg tomorrow early morning (3.05am local time) within touching distance of their first European final in nearly a decade and a half.

Then came the killer moment in the tie when Rolando, unlike Dabbur before him, converted from inside the box after being picked out from a corner - Les Phoceens' first shot on target all evening. Playing last in Week 36 they could find the pressure squarely on them.

Following the share of the spoils at Strasbourg, Favre acknowledged: "I don't know if this was a bad result and the positive was that we equalised in order to take something".

"The first thing I think is what the team needs", he replied. He managed to recover his health, dislodge Marseille legend Steve Mandanda in goal, and on the night pulled off a brilliant point-blank stop amongst other saves, keeping his side in the game.

Brighton, meanwhile, can secure Premier League safety with a win over Jose Mourinho and company, as they now rest in 14th position, five points above Southampton in the first danger spot.

MADRID: Atletico Madrid's forward Antoine Griezmann vies with Arsenal's midfielder Jack Wilshere during their UEFA Europa League semifinal second leg football match.

Simeone had been charged with insulting a match official and improper conduct. He was also fined $11,942, European soccer's governing body said.

UEFA's disciplinary committee also charged Marseille after away supporters set off fireworks and threw objects during the second leg of their semi-final at Salzburg.

The final is billed to hold on the 16th of May at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in France.

Atletico splashed out $68.30 million to bring Costa back from Chelsea a year ago and he repaid some of that fee by breaking the deadlock at the end of the first half at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico forward Antoine Griezmann is all but guaranteed to travel to Russian Federation. "Costa came back here for nights like this", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "This side needs an aggressive striker, a striker with anger, and that's exactly what he is".
