Atlético puts an end to OM’s dream
Thanks in particular to a double of Griezmann, Atlético puts an end to OM’s dream (3-0). Despite a good start to the match, OM, who lost Payet on injury to half an hour of play, has logically fallen to an Atlético Madrid just superior (3-0).
The glacial Realism of Atlético
We were waiting for an introduction in favor of Colchoneros, grandissimes favorites of this final. It has not happened. Uninhibited and rather inspired against surprisingly rough Madrilenians, the Olympians quickly took control of the ball and the game. Faced with adverse approximations, the men of Garcia are gradually revving. They could even open the score on a superb shift of Payet for Germain, but the OM striker, only facing Oblak at the surface entry, missed the frame (4th). Not discouraged so far, the Olympians continued to play their card thoroughly. Rummy was trying his luck but lacked accuracy (6th), as Bouna Sarr a little later (12th), while Payet lacked power (19th). Febrile as rarely, the Atlético chained on his side technical errors, too soft passes or bad raises. But he only needed a balloon to hit the nail. Originally, a somewhat risky stimulus of Mandanda Zambo Anguissa who was out of control. On the lookout, Gabi threw Griezmann, who was going to deceive the porter Marseille. Cruel for OM …
Payet’s early injury, a turning point
Long uncertain due to hamstring discomfort, Dimitri Payetwas finally established by Rudi Garcia in support of Valère Germain. At the beginning of the few interesting movements of his family early in the game, the captain had yet to give up half an hour of play. In tears, he left the lawn and left his place to Maxime Lopez. An exit that was very quickly felt. Without his master to play, and with a goal late on the scoreboard, OM could no longer be dangerous. Thauvin was too discreet, and the brave Ocampos too rough in his initiatives. At the break, the Olympians had framed only once, on this soft and safe shot of Payet (19th). Few, far too few to hope to come back against a well-known Spanish formation, rightly, for its defensive solidity. The second period was the same: OM suffered, without being able to be really dangerous. It was even necessary to wait the last ten minutes to see Mitroglou, entered into play a few minutes earlier in the place of Germain, to finally worry Oblak. But his crossed head ended on the post, before rolling in front of the goal line (81). Despite new attempts by Amavi or Njie, OM did not find the flaw.
Griezmann executioner Olympians
Titularized alongside Diego Costa in the 4-4-2 Madrid, Antoine Griezmannwas the main executioner of OM. Not content to have opened the scoring for his own, the French striker could have turned into a decisive smuggler without a perfect tackle from Bouna Sarr in front of a Diego Costa who was preparing to leave the goal (42). The native of Mâcon then took things in hand again. A few minutes after the return of the locker room, he offered himself a doubled of a small dive as precise as subtle after a superb service Koke (49th). A blow to OM, who will not recover. The Spaniards then monopolized the ball and made the Marseille rearguard suffer, like this deviation of Rami who was spinning right next to the post of a Mandanda beat immediately (51). Godin, of the head, also lacked the frame for a few inches (52nd). Gabi, at the conclusion of a superb collective movement, was still charged to add a little more addition at the end of the game (90th). Like a Luiz Gustavo strangely nervous and aggressive, OM has simply fallen on (much) stronger than him.
