11:00 PM: Hello everyone and welcome to Khel Now’s LIVE COVERAGE of the Europa League Final 2023-24 between Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen. The kick-off is just one hour away! I am your host Waseem and will keep you company through what promises a fascinating night of football. Please wait for 30 Seconds for the Live blog to load.

Atalanta were in Serie A action just this Saturday. They won 2-0 against Lecce to move into the final UEFA Champions League group stage qualification spot for next season. La Dea will now look to try their hands at winning the UEFA Europa League title as they are set to clash against Bundesliga champions in a few days time.

Bayer Leverkusen claimed the Bundesliga title in style. A 2-1 win over FC Augsburg meant a different kind of achievement. They became the first-ever German side to win the league title without even losing once in the entire season. Xabi Alonso’s men will now use that momentum to hopefully clinch another title when they collide with the Italian outfit in  Aviva Stadium.

Players to Watch

Gianluca Scamacca (Atalanta)

Moving back to Italy after leaving English side West Ham United at the start of the season has been a blessing in disguise for Gianluca Scamacca. In 10 UEL appearances so far, Scamacca has netted six goals in the competition.

Alejandro Grimaldo (Bayer Leverkusen)

Just like Scamacca, Alejandro Grimaldo also came into a new club at the start of the season. Grimaldo left the Portuguese giants SL Benfica to move into the Leverkusen team. The 28-year-old has been a phenom scoring two goals while also providing five assists in the tournament so far.

Match Facts

  • Atalanta have won four of their last five fixtures in all competitions
