The two French stars will be team-mates at the World Cup, but they will both be competing for European honours in Lyon on Wednesday

Marseille captain Dimitri Payet will look to upset compatriot Antoine Griezmann as l'OM take on Atletico Madrid in Wednesday's Europa League final. 

The ex-West Ham man wears the armband for his side and will sit just behind sole striker Valere Germain in a 4-2-3-1 line-up. 

He is joined by Lucas Ocampos and Florian Thauvin in Marseille's creative axis, while former Bayern man Luiz Gustavo starts at centre-back tasked with keeping Griezmann under wraps.

Griezmann, meanwhile, is joined by Diego Costa up front for the Colchoneros in a two-man attack.
