Atalanta beat Bayer Leverkusen to clinch UEL title

Atalanta beat Bayer Leverkusen in the 2023/2024 Europa League final, Wednesday (22/5/2024), the Italian club won the match at the Aviva Stadium with a score of 3-0. Atalanta's three goals against Leverkusen were scored by Ademola Lookman, the 26-year-old Nigerian winger created the hat trick in the 12th, 26th and 75th minutes. In this first Europa League final, Atalanta succeeded in reversing the predictions of many parties. The reason is, that Leverkusen came undefeated throughout the season, and that made the German side more favourites. However, Gian Piero Gasperini's team was able to beat Xabi Alonso's troops by three goals without reply. The Italian club also succeeded in winning its first major European trophy while continuing in Parma's footsteps.

This season's final was Atalanta's first final in the Europa League, the Blues managed to win and win their first title. Before Atalanta, the last Italian club to win this competition was Parma. Parma did it in the 1998/1999 season. At that time, this competition was still called the UEFA Cup. In the 1999 final, Parma beat French side, Marseille. The score is also the same as the Atalanta vs Leverkusen score, namely 3-0. At that time, Parma won thanks to goals from Hernan Crespo in the 25th minute, Paolo Vanoli in the 36th minute and Enrico Chiesa in the 55th minute.
