The day is here. We're in Lyon and ready to play the UEFA Europa League final against Olympique de Marseille. Kick-off at the Stade de Lyon is set for 8:45 p.m. CET.
Our team is looking to win its third Europa League, after our success in 2010 and 2012. Meanwhile, OM wish to win their first-ever Europa League and thus seal qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
The Stade de Lyon, also known as Groupama Stadium, covers 50 hectares and is located in Decines-Charpieu, roughly 10 km from the centre of Lyon and can seat 59,186 fans. It'll be ready to host the beautiful final between our team and Olympique de Marseille.
Our rival in the final is one of the most successful teams in French football. OM are the only team from France to win the UEFA Champions League and they've also won ten league titles, ten French cups and three league cups.
Olympique de Marseille's coach is Rudi García and he's been in charge of the team since October 2016. He's a charismatic manager and our boss Diego Pablo Simeone has praised him on numerous occasions.
This will be the third time we face OM and so far, we've never lost (one win and one draw). Our team will do everything possible so that stat remains true after the final in Lyon.
