Atalanta face Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League final with the teams set to clash at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin tonight.


Leverkusen are hoping to keep their incredible unbeaten season going as they target a second trophy of the year having comfortably sown up the Bundesliga. Xabi Alonso’s men have just two matches, including this one, left in the season and could complete a full campaign without defeat. Their other fixture is the German Cup final which means they are also on course for a potential treble.


However, Atalanta are in a decent run of form going unbeaten in each of their four matches since a 1-0 loss to Juventus in the Coppa Italia final. They have won their last six Serie A games and cruised past Marseille 4-1 on aggregate in the Europa League semi-finals. Italy’s strong performance in this year’s European competitions also means Atalanta, who are fifth in their domestic league, have already secured a place in next year’s Champions League so they are under no added pressure to triumph tonight.

Atalanta 2-0 Bayer Leverkusen

39 mins: Is there a way back into this match for Bayer Leverkusen?


They’ve been outclassed, and have played poorly, in this first half. Atalanta are bossing the game and their intensity is a big factor in that. There’s hardly time for Leverkusen’s playmakers to think before they’re getting closed down.

Atalanta press high up the pitch and force a turnover after Matej Kovar boots the ball up to the centre forward. Atalanta quickly feed it to Ademola Lookman.
