Marseille winger Dimitri Payet is passed fit for their Europa League final against Atletico Madrid.

Marseille's Dimitri Payet has been passed fit to face Atletico Madrid in tonight's Europa League final.

The playmaker has shaken off a thigh problem to line up in midfield, in a more advanced position to Morgan Sanson and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

Manager Rudi Garcia has opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Valere Germain spearheading his attack.

Luiz Gustavo will partner Adil Rami at centre-back for the Ligue 1 club, while former Crystal Palace stopper Steve Mandanda lines up between the sticks.

Atletico, meanwhile, have gone with a 4-4-2 formation which pairs Diego Costa with Antoine Griezmann up front.

Koke and Angel Correa will provide support for the attackers from the wings, while the Spanish side have opted for the reliable back four of Jose Gimenez, Lucas Hernandez, Sime Vrsaljko and Diego Godin.

Marseille: Mandanda; Sarr, Rami, Luiz Gustavo, Amavi; Anguissa, Sanson; Thauvin, Payet, Ocampos; Germain
Subs: Kamara, Lopez, Mitroglu, Njie, Pele, Rolando, Sakai

Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Lucas, Godin, Gimenez, Vrsaljko; Gabi, Saul, Koke, Correa; Costa, Griezmann
Subs: Torres, Luis, Juanfran, Gameiro, Savic, Werner, Thomas
