Our Marseille Atletico Madrid tip
Marseille are defensively weak and they will struggle to contain the likes of Griezmann and Costa. Furthermore, Atletico are one of the best defensive teams in the world and it will be a massive challenge breaking them down at the back. This should be a close contest but the Spanish giants are likely to edge this one eventually.
