Atletico Madrid have lost five European finals against teams in white

Marseille will be wearing white when they take to the pitch at the Stade de Lyon on Wednesday evening, which should worry Atletico Madrid fans.

The five European finals that the capital city club have lost in their history have all been against teams wearing white.

Of course, there were the two recent Champions League finals against Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016.

Yet their previous defeat in the European Cup final also came against a side wearing white, with Bayern Munich winning in this colour in 1974.

Los Rojiblancos have also lost two Cup Winners’ Cups, falling to Tottenham in 1963 and to Dynamo Kyiv in 1986, with those two sides wearing white.
