What happened in the last France-Spain UEFA final?

Marseille vs Atletico Madrid: What happened in the last France-Spain UEFA final?

May 15, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
LiveSoccerTV rewinds the taps to how things unfolded the last time a French and Spanish opponent met in the final of a UEFA club competition.

The year 2004 does not bring fond memories for many football lovers in France. The period saw two clubs from the football nation fall into two major European finals against a Portuguese and a Spanish side.

It was during this time that a young Portuguese coach battled against supremos in European football to forge a legacy which still lingers in the football hemisphere. May 26, 2004, was the day Jose Mourinho led FC Porto to its second European title at the expense of an AS Monaco side that had defeated the likes of Lokomotiv Moscow, Real Madrid, and Chelsea in their journey to the final.

The UEFA Champions League final which was played at the Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, ended in 3-0 in favor of the Portuguese club.

Nevertheless, seven days prior to that particular encounter, 2018 Europa League finalist Olympique Marseille also fell to an agonizing 2-0 loss at the hands of their Spanish opponent, Valencia. Vicente Rodriguez and Mista were the goalscorers in the game which took place at Nya Ullevi in Gothenburg, Ukraine.

After enduring tough battles against the likes of RB Salzburg, RB Leipzig and Athletic Club, Olympique Marseille will have the opportunity to finally get one over their Spanish counterparts on May 17. Can complete the revenge mission?
