Today, May 16, Marseille take on Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Europa League final. Atletico go into the encounter as favourites, however, the Spanish side needs to be wary of their opponents who will be gunning to add the Europa title to their cabinet.

The DFB Cup final between Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt takes place on Saturday, May 19. Bayern go into this match already confidently knowing that they have the Bundesliga title in the bag and will be putting their best foot forward as they face Frankfurt in the final.

Useful facts: Les Phoceens and Los Rojiblancos will lock horns for the third time in all competitions when they clash in the Europa Cup final on Wednesday evening. Olympians will look to claim the Europa Cup for the first time in 25 years when they host the Spanish giants. Diego Simeone’s side won it for the first time in 2010. No French team has ever won this prestigious cup and the second-placed LaLiga side will do everything in their power to make sure the status quo remains. The last time these two sides met, they played to a goalless stalemate in the UEFA Champions League in 2009.

Useful facts: Jupp Heynckes will be looking to sign off in style as the head coach of Bundesliga champions. Bayern are in search of a double this season as they play hosts to Frankfurt in the DFB Cup final this Saturday in Berlin, where a win for Niko Kovac and his charges would book them a spot in the Europa League next term. This final is also a Kovac’s last game as coach of the Eagles as he will be heading to Munich to be Heynckes’ successor next season. A 4-1 scoreline in favour of the Bavarians was the result when these two German teams met last month in a league match.
