Dimitri Payet touched the Europa League trophy when he came out onto the pitch and perhaps paid the price with bad luck - an injury.
The playmaker had to go off in the 31st minute after suffering a problem, and was replaced by Maxime Lopez.
Some say that if you touch the cup on the way out before the game, you are cursed. The Frenchman left the pitch in tears, with Atletico already 1-0 up thanks to Antoine Griezmann's goal.
Payet will hope his problem is not too serious, with the French World Cup squad on the brink of being named.
