Kings of Lyon: Atletico Madrid Beat Marseille in Europa League Final

Atletico Madrid have won UEFA's Europa League for the third time in eight years, comfortably beating Olympique Marseille 3-0 in Lyon. Marseille came into the match desperate to end French football's 25-year trophy drought on the European stage, Intertoto Cups notwithstanding. Ultimately it was the Spanish side's experience and technical quality in such arenas that won them the cup. For the Spaniards it is a virtuous circle, for the French it is a vicious one.
