Ademola Lookman's hat-trick makes history, ending Bayer Leverkusen's Europa final streak

Posted : 23 May 2024

Super Eagles forward Ademola Lookman showcased his prowess by netting a hattrick for Atalanta, leading them to a commanding 3-0 triumph over Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Europa League final.

At the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Bayer Leverkusen and Atalanta engaged in a highly anticipated showdown for the Europa League crown.

Among the notable players, three Super Eagles stars featured, with Lookman starting for Atalanta, while Victor Boniface and Nathan Tella were on Bayer Leverkusen's bench.

Despite Bayer Leverkusen's formidable form, boasting a remarkable 51-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, Atalanta emerged as fierce contenders, determined to clinch victory after their recent Copa Italia loss to Juventus.

From the onset, both teams battled fiercely in midfield, with Atalanta strategically aiming to stifle Bayer Leverkusen's attacking prowess and disrupt their fluid style of play.

Taking advantage of Bayer Leverkusen's defensive lapses, Lookman capitalized on a cross from Davide Zappacosta to slot home Atalanta's opener, setting the stage for his remarkable performance.

Exploiting the gaps in Bayer Leverkusen's defense, Lookman showcased his skill and agility by skillfully evading Granit Xhaka before unleashing a powerful strike to double Atalanta's lead.

Despite Bayer Leverkusen's attempts to rally, their efforts fell short as Atalanta continued to dominate, with Lookman sealing his hattrick with a clinical finish during a swift counterattack.

Bayer Leverkusen struggled to break through Atalanta's solid defense, ultimately succumbing to a resounding 3-0 defeat as Atalanta claimed their first major title under coach Gian Pero Gasperini's leadership.
