The Europa League final offers a first opportunity for European glory to both participants, as Atalanta and Leverkusen meet at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.

Atalanta may have had the toughest run to the final of the two sides, going through Sporting Lisbon, Liverpool and Marseille to set up this date with the German champions. The Italian side were heartbroken last week as they lost the Coppa Italia final to Juventus, but they will believe they have every chance to make history here.

Leverkusen meanwhile are two wins away from an immortal achievement, with the Bundesliga title secured, they could be about to win a treble without losing a single game in any of the three competitions they entered at the start of the season.

Having shaken off their ‘Neverkusen’ tag by finally winning the Bundesliga, the German side could be about to embark on by far the greatest week in the history of the club. Prior to this season, both sides had won just one major trophy each, the DFB Pokal for Leverkusen in 1993, and the Coppa Italia for Atalanta way back in 1963.

This should be a fascinating match between two of the most entertaining teams in Europe. We also think it looks like a great match for a bet, and we’ve done all the research for you.

Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen Predicted Lineups

Back to full-strength from Gian Piero Gasperini

With nothing to play for in their final Serie A game away to Lecce, Gasperini took the chance to rotate his side somewhat. We anticipate five changes ahead of this one, and a return to 3-4-2-1, with Berat Djimsiti returning in place of Rafael Toloi at right centre-back, Matteo Ruggeri to slot back into left wing-back as Davide Zappacosta shifts back to the right flank, and Ederson back in the centre of midfield, as Giorgio Scalvini drops to centre-back. Upfront, expect Gianluca Scamacca to lead the line ahead of Teun Koopmeiners and Charles De Ketelaere, who were both rested at the weekend.

4 2 3 1 21 1

Xabi Alonso back to his trusted XI

The Leverkusen boss also made a couple of changes at the weekend, though with his unbeaten record to protect he still fielded a fairly strong side in the 2-1 win over Augsburg. Piero Hincapie will return in place of Odilon Kossounou at the back, while in midfield Granit Xhaka comes back in to partner Exequiel Palacios. Upfront Jonas Hofmann and the Bundesliga Player of the Season Florian Wirtz will likely be playing just in behind Victor Boniface, as Alonso continues with the 3-4-2-1 that has served him so well all season long.

Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen Team Stats

Goalkeeper saves market worth exploring

Leverkusen are heavily favoured and on paper look to be the better of the two sides. Atalanta will have chances, but we expect most of the play to be in their own half. The Atalanta goalkeeper has often been busy this season, making three or more saves in 20 of their last 29 games, a high rate for a team that go into most of their league and Europa League games expecting to win. Leverkusen, meanwhile, have forced the opposing goalkeeper into four or more saves in 12 of their last 16 in all competitions. Therefore, backing Juan Musso to make 3+ saves at 1.36 looks a pretty safe bet, while backing him for four or more at 1.91 is a nice option too.

Goals likely at both ends

Leverkusen’s ongoing unbeaten run has not been plain sailing in recent weeks but it remains intact, with Xabi Alonso’s side needing late equalisers in games against Dortmund, Stuttgart and Roma. They have now conceded a goal in five of their last seven games and having scored in all but one game this season (January 27 v Monchengladbach the one exception), that means both teams to score has landed in all five of those seven in which they conceded. Atalanta have seen both teams score in five of their last nine, scoring in eight of these games. With Leverkusen’s defence looking unlikely to shut out the Italian side, backing both teams to score at 1.85 looks a solid bet here.

Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen Shots and Shots on Target Stats

Teun Koopmeiners offers nice value here

Attacking midfielder Koopmeiners may only sit fourth for Atalanta in terms of shots on target per 90 in Serie A (0.59), but his numbers recently have been much higher. Across his last eight starts in all competitions, he has had at least one shot on target in six, hitting two or more shots on target on three occasions. In both of the games Koopmeiners did not have an effort on target but it was not for a lack of trying either, taking four and two shots respectively. Available at 1.80 to have a shot on target here, he offers the best value of any Atalanta attacker.

5 21 2024 ATALANTA betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING1

Alex Grimaldo worth a look for a shot on target

Hitting 2.30 shots per 90 and 0.74 shots on target per 90 in the Bundesliga from wing-back is an incredibly impressive return from Leverkusen’s Alex Grimaldo. His side are expected to dominate, meaning his attacking colleagues offer little value in the shots on target markets, but Grimaldo can be backed to hit one at 1.91. He has hit a shot on target in six of his last 10 starts and has had at least one shot in eight of these 10. Both of the games in which he has failed to have a shot he was taken off with 20 minutes or more to play, but we expect him to last the full 90 in the biggest game of Leverkusen’s season, giving him plenty of time to land this bet.

Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen Goals and Assists Stats

Gianluca Scamacca the best option for Atalanta

Those looking to boost their odds when creating a bet builder here should strongly consider backing Gianluca Scamacca to score or assist. The 6ft 5in Italian has now scored or assisted in 11 of his last 14 starts for Atalanta, including four of his last six Europa League games, racking up 11 goals and three assists in this run. He can be backed to do one or the other again here at 3.0, while those seeking higher odds may back him to score anytime at 3.75, something he has done in ten of his last 14.

Victor Boniface’s recent returns too good to ignore

Though he is sitting at odds-on to score or assist, the fact that Nigeria international striker Boniface has either scored or assisted in eight straight starts for Leverkusen means he must be considered the best option in the goals and assists markets. Boniface can be backed to score or assist at 1.83, and those looking to push the envelope should consider backing him to score anytime too. He has scored in seven of these eight starts and he can be backed to make it eight in nine in this market at 2.10.

Atalanta Cards and Fouls Stats

Teun Koopmeiners one to watch for multiple fouls

Playing as one of the front three, just in behind Gianluca Scamacca, Koopmeiners tops the Atalanta foul charts in Serie A, notching an impressive 1.84 per 90. The Netherlands international has committed two or more fouls in each of his last six starts for the club, including in a similarly high-stakes clash in last week’s Coppa Italia final. Potentially up against Exequiel Palacios who draws 2.71 fouls per 90 in the Bundesliga, and who has won two or more fouls on his own in seven straight Leverkusen starts, Koopmeiners looks likely to commit at least a couple of fouls here and can be backed to foul twice or more at 1.73.

Grimaldo best option for Leverkusen

There is a serious lack of value in the fouls won markets for Leverkusen, with the only option worth even considering being Alex Grimaldo. The wing-back has won fouls in four of his last six starts for the club, and two of his last three Europa League starts. He wins 0.84 fouls per 90 in the Bundesliga and has a very solid matchup in Atalanta wing-back Davide Zappacosta. The Italian has committed a foul in five straight games for the club and has committed 1.27 fouls per 90 in Serie A, making at least one tangle between these two seem likely on Wednesday. Grimaldo can be backed to win a foul at 1.57.

Bayer Leverkusen Cards and Fouls Stats

Edmond Tapsoba a strong option for a foul

All three of Leverkusen’s centre-backs rank in the top five for fouls won, but Burkina Faso international Tapsoba offers the best value here. He can be backed at 1.40 to commit a foul and having committed at least one in 10 of his last 12 Leverkusen games, and in four straight Europa League clashes. He commits 1.08 fouls per 90 in the Bundesliga, and will be up against Gianluca Scamacca, who wins 2.15 fouls per 90 in Serie A, the most of any Atalanta player.

5 21 2024 BAYER LEVERKUSEN betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR1

Isak Hien offers fantastic value here

Drawing 0.99 fouls per 90 in Serie A, all while playing as a centre-back, Hien offers exceptional value here, where he can be backed to be fouled once or more at 2.30. The Sweden international has now won a foul in six of his last seven games for Atalanta, and has a combination of Victor Boniface, Florian Wirtz and Amine Adli to contend with, all of whom commit roughly a foul per 90 in the Bundesliga, at 0.93, 0.87 and 1.40 respectively. Hien’s strong record of being fouled makes it worth backing him to win at least one here for anyone crafting a high odds Atalanta vs Leverkusen bet builder.
