How Ademola Lookman’s hat-trick led Atalanta past Bayer Leverkusen to their first Europa League title

No celebrations for Leverkusen tonight may be a blessing in disguise as they have a very quick turnaround for the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday.

Fortunately, it should be a game they can win without hitting top gear as second-tier side FC Kaiserslautern await at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, the same venue that will host the Euro 2024 final.

As for Atalanta, they do not have to worry about their celebrations ruining their next game as they face Torino at home on Sunday. As they have already secured a Champions League berth next season, that match doesn’t hold too much importance for Gasperini’s side.

Although, I would love to see the homecoming that Lookman and co get at the Gewiss Stadium ahead of that match!
