Marseille dominated the opening stages but gifted Atletico took the lead when Andre-Frank Anguissa failed to control goalkeeper Steve Mandanda's pass out and Gabi intercepted before setting Griezmann free to score in the 21st minute.

The mood inside the stadium swung completely with the goal, and things fell even further Atletico's way when Marseille's best player, Dimitri Payet, was soon forced off injured.

Marseille struggled to contain their opponents for the rest of the half, although substitute Kostas Mitroglou, once of Fulham, hit the post late on with a terrific towering header. Griezmann has been Atletico's leading scorer in each season since he joined from Real Sociedad for 25 million euros ($30 million) in 2014, and his double took him on to 29 goals in all competitions this campaign.

It was a night to remember for Fernando Torres who won the first and may likely be the last trophy with his boyhood club in what was his last game for the Rojiblancos.

"We've always said the best way to get back to winning ways is by persisting".

The 27-year-old Griezmann, who collected the man-of-the-match award, declined to discuss whether he would stay or leave Atletico at the end of the season.

"If he goes then great, he's given a lot to us over the years".

"It is not the moment to talk about my future, I must enjoy having won a trophy, and celebrate it with the fans,"Griezmann said". "I left home when I was 14 for that".

Team Diego Simone scored three unanswered goals in the gate "Marseilles" and became the victor of the Europa League of the season 2017-2018.

Payet had made a strong bid for a recall to the global stage with an impressive run of form, which included inspiring Marseille to the Europa League final, but his injury may have ended his chances of playing in the tournament.

However, a defensive error would undo everything before Griezmann and Gabi put the game beyond doubt and added another bit of silverware to Atletico's cabinet. They work very hard.

"It was a dream of mine to win a title under Simeone and I told myself that this was my time. Even without him we'll continue to grow".
