The stats behind our Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen predictions:

  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine Europa League finals, including the last five in a row.
  • Bayer Leverkusen are unbeaten across all competitions this season.
  • Die Werkself have had to come from behind in four of their six Europa League knockout matches this season.

An unprecedented climax to a historic season

Leverkusen, who have been runners-up five times in the past, won their first Bundesliga title this year. They now have the chance to complete a treble if they win the Europa League final and succeed against Kaiserslautern in the German Cup decider on Saturday.

This year’s success sharply contrasts with Leverkusen’s famous 2001/02 campaign. Dubbed Neverkusen, Die Werkself finished second in the Bundesliga and were runners-up in both the German Cup and UEFA Champions League. In their semi-final second leg against Roma, they secured a 2-2 draw and extended their unbeaten run to 49 matches (now standing at 51). The team has displayed immense desire under the leadership of Xabi Alonso, which is evident in the numerous crucial late goals they have scored.

Standing in their way is an impressive Atalanta side who are playing at a different tempo to their Serie A rivals and sparkling in the UEFA Europa League, where forwards Charles De Ketelaere and Gianluca Scamacca have hit top form when it counts the most. Leverkusen are undefeated this season, but this will be a severe test for the German champions.

It’s no surprise that Xabi Alonso’s men are favourites for the final having not suffered defeat in any competition so far in 2023/24. This will be Atalanta’s first ever European final, but having already knocked out the likes of Liverpool, Sporting and Marseille out of the competition they will be hoping to cause another huge upset.
