#3 The Dimitri Payet heartbreak

Payet
Payet had to be taken off due to injury

It was clear from the get-go that Payet was the one who was going to weave magic for Marseille in the centre. His movement, dribbling and passing were causing Atletico some real concern at the back in the early stages of the game.

However, as he had to be taken off due to injury, you could see the disappointment on his face and on the fans' faces as well. Marseille looked severely starved of quality going forward in the Frenchman's absence.

As a result, Marseille bottled their chance to be the first French team to win a major European trophy since 1995. As for Payet, we hope that the injury is not a serious one and that he will be all set to go to Russia.
