The Italian side have history backing them against Leverkusen

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.
