At the other end, the ball falls for Njie who refuses to strike it with his left foot and goes for it with the outside of his foot - and gets it horribly wrong.
Marseille living dangerously at the back. They gift it to Costa who sees his 20-yard drive deflect to safety off the back of Gustavo.
Amavi lets fly with a bouncing 25-yard strike that Oblak gets his body behind before holding firm.
Will that near miss give Marseille the lift to make this a barnstorming finale? Or will Atletico slam the door shut?

The resulting corner comes to nothing, but at least Marseille are having a go now.
A rare error in the Atletico defence as Juanfran panics and miscues a cross from the right behind for a corner. He had initially wanted Oblak to come and claim.
Marseille trying to build up a head of steam, but they've rarely looked like troubling Oblak in the Atletico goal.
It's been all Atletico in this half. Marseille look beaten.

HT: Marseille 0-1 Atletico. Griezmann's opener separates the sides. Germain missed a gilt-edged chance at 0-0 for Marseille, while the French side have lost their skipper, Payet to injury.
One minute added.
Amavi curves a dangerous ball towards Thauvin, but Atleti do enough to put him off and move the ball clear.
This half has just got worse as it's gone on for Marseille. Germain missed an early sitter, they gifted Atleti the lead and then saw Payet go off injured. They look a bit lost and need half time.

Koke fires the resulting free kick into the mix, but Godin can't keep his header down.

That really is a HUGE blow for Marseille.
- OffDimitri PayetOlympique de Marseille
- OnMaxime LopezOlympique de Marseille
Payet slumps to the floor. He's going to have to go off. The ex-West Ham man is in tears as he removes the captain's armband and trudges to the sideline.
Ocampos with some lovely footwork to jink beyond two defenders before being closed down by another two Atletico bodies. Easy to see why they are so mean in defence.
Ángel Correa sneaks in on the right side of the Marseille box but his angled volley lacks power and is well held by Mandanda.
- Yellow cardŠime VrsaljkoAtlético Madrid
Sime Vrsaljko booked.
That was Griezmann's 28th goal of the season. It was a real gift too. Marseille will be disappointed after dominating the opening 20 minutes.
- GoalAntoine GriezmannAtlético Madrid
GOAL! Griezmann swoops in and clinically fires the ball home after Anguissa's error 30 yards from goal allowed the Spanish side to pounce.
The ball falls kindly for Payet 25 yards out, but his attempt lacks power and is scooped up by Oblak.
Koke is in the action again, but his acrobatic volley flashes way over.
Koke floats it in but it's easily cleared.
A free kick is awarded to Atletico on the right. Looked like a fair challenge. Marseille feel hard done by, but will hope they don't pay the ultimate price...
Sarr takes aim but shoots just wide from 25 yards.
Costa charges into Rami as the defender looked to head clear. It was a needlessly late challenge and Marseille's players aren't happy. The referee calls the forward over and gives him a strong warning - but no card.
Will it be third time lucky for Marseille? Les Olympiens lost in their previous appearances in the finals of 1999 and 2004 - but they've made a bright start here.
Another opening for the French side. A set piece is only half cleared and drops for Adil Rami, who flashes just off target from the edge of the area.
One of Europe's strongest rearguards was cut wide open then. Germain should have scored.
HUGE CHANCE! Marseille break at speed. Payet races towards the edge of the Atletico box and slips it through for Valère Germain, who contrives to lift his effort over the top.
HEAD-TO-HEAD: This is the third meeting between the two teams. They previously locked horns in the 2008-09 CL group stage with Atletico securing a 2-1 win at home before earning a 0-0 draw in Marseille.
Tonight's referee is Bjorn Kuipers of the Netherlands.
Marseille hoof the ball into the left-hand corner of the Atletico half from kick off. Seemed rather bizarre and more rugby than football.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Marseille get the 2018 Europa League final underway.
FRANCE v SPAIN: This is the first time a French team has made the final of the EL. It is the seventh time for Spain. Olympique have only won four of their 15 UEFA competition encounters with sides from Spain. They have lost eight. Meanwhile, Atletico have won six and lost just one of their 12 previous meetings with French outfits.
STAT: This is the ninth EL final. There have been 21 goals in the right previous finals with the biggest margin of victory coming back in 2012 when Atletico vanquished Athletic Bilbao 3-0 in Bucharest.
DID YOU KNOW? This is a battle between two clubs that boast European firsts. Marseille were the champions in the inaugural season of the Champions League back in 1993, while Atletico achieved a similar feat when the UEFA Cup was rebadged as the Europa League in 2010.
And how Atletico saw off Arsenal in the last four to end Arsene Wenger's dream of signing off from the Gunners with a European trophy.
A quick recap on how Marseille came through a tricky semi final.
Marseille coach, Rudi Garcia: "We have a pretty small chance of winning but we are going to give it our all. Playing Atlético is a big event for us. This is a club who have played two Champions League finals in the past four years, a club that won the Europa League not long ago. But a final at home in France is a fantastic opportunity."
More from Simeone: "Everything is set up for a great final. [Marseille have] been improving and they have a coach who has so many options at his disposal and a lot of nous. They're very dangerous, particularly in midfield and attack. It'll certainly be a tough game. As soon as we got knocked out of the Champions League, we immediately embraced this competition. Being widely billed as contenders to reach the final heightened our sense of duty and responsibility. And here we are."
Atletico boss Diego Simeone is still serving a four-match suspension after being sent to the stand in the semi final versus Arsenal. His assistant German Burgos will take his place in the dugout. "It was the same thing against Arsenal, when German was in charge of the side," said Simeone. "I feel sad at not being there, but we have known each other for a lifetime and we understand football in the same way. I have confidence in him being in charge."
Dimitri Payet: "We believe against Atletico because this season has shown that we are a real team. Those who won the Champions League in 1993 are still heroes because nobody else has done it since. We know how tough it is. Of course, that is an added source of motivation, and if we do win the final, our names will be written into the club's history books forever."
The good news for Marseille is that Dimitri Payet has shaken off a thigh issue to captain his side tonight. Sarr comes in at right back ahead of Sakai while Gustavo drops back from midfield to slot in at centre back.
