Gabi talks up Atleti’s chances


Atletico star Gabi insists his team's ability to fight will be displayed when they take on Marseille in the final of the Europa League.

The two teams will meet in Lyon on Wednesday night and Gabi is adamant he and his team-mates know what is required as they look to lift the trophy.

Atletico will feature in their third Europa League final but Marseille have shown their attacking prowess on numerous occasions this season and will be confident of pulling off a shock win.

The winner of the tie will qualify for next season’s Champions League regardless of the result and Gabi insists the Atletico squad are confident of getting the job done due to their ability to grind out results.

‘Our characteristics are stability and consistency and we are among those side’s who know how best to suffer throughout a game,’ Gabi told reporters.

‘We’ve already shown in finals and important games that this is our strength. We’ve spent around seven years working in a similar fashion, which has brought great results and has been created by our Coach.

‘Previously unknown players have now become famous and we have all grown alongside the club. Our way of working has become a reference point for many in Europe and we hope to continue at this level for a long time.’
