Europa League final Atalanta vs Bayer Levrkusen Preview


Atalanta's performance in the 2023–23 Europa League has been excellent, having only suffered one loss. The Nerazzurri started their Europa League group stage match with an unbeaten run in Group D, winning four matches and playing two draws. Piero Gasperini's side defeated Sporting CP on their home soil in the second leg of the round of 16 with a crucial 2-1 victory, and the aggregate ended at 2-3. In the Europa League quarterfinals, Atalanta displayed a solid winning mentality as they defeated Liverpool 3-1 on aggregate after a magnificent 3-0 victory in the first leg. The Serie A side also won their semifinals comfortably, defeating Marseille 4-1 on aggregate. Gian Piero Gasperini will hope his side can continue their form to stop five-time runners-up Leverkusen and clinch the Europa League trophy for the first time in their history.

Atalanta head coach Gian Piero Gasperini
"The final will be a historic event. For teams like ours, it's truly incredible, but it's a good omen for everyone. It's a historic achievement for us; we also celebrated after Liverpool, after Sporting, rightly so. But we know very well that it's not over. Now we have several important games to play, and we will have time to think about Leverkusen."

Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen has displayed excellent performances all season, stretching their unbeaten run in all competitions to 50 games without a defeat in their last match against Bochum. Xabi Alonso's side has already claimed their first Bundesliga trophy this season, and they are vying for a treble this season. Leverkusen topped Group H with 18 points, winning all their group-stage matches while recording 19 goals during the run and conceding three goals. In the round of 16, they beat Qarabag with an aggregate score of 5-4 and advanced to the quarterfinals, where they also defeated West Ham by a 3-1 aggregate. Leverkusen booked their spot in the Dublin UEFA Europa League final by defeating AS Roma in a dramatic first and second leg, with the aggregate ending at 4-2.
