Watch: Marseille Seal Europa League Final Spot With Controversial Goal
By Arthur James O'Dea

With Arsenal's trip to Madrid looking the more competitive of the two Europa League semi-finals tonight, Marseille's 2-0 lead from a comfortable first-leg win against RB Salzburg didn't appear overly problematic.

Yet, anyone who witnessed Lazio's trip to Austria in the quarter-final will have known that this particular cog in the Red Bull machine have a bit about them.

After 90 minutes, the 2-0 lead had been equaled and both sides were heading for extra-time. With this year's Europa League final taking place in Lyon, the French side would have been devestated to fall in such a fashion.

With the game looking to be going to penalties, it fell to the 32-year-old central defender Rolando to sneak Marseille into prime-position again.

However, it was not without controversy. Beautifully finishing a Dimitri Payet corner, there were serious doubts that the corner ever should have been given in the first place.

A fairly inexplicable mistake, you can see the shot the 'deflection' that brought Marseille the crucial corner at the end of the video below.

That being said, one former Marseille man was not one bit bothered.
