Leverkusen Stuns Roma in Europa League Thriller, Advances to Final

Posted : 10 May 2024

Bayer Leverkusen secured their spot in the Europa League final with a dramatic finish against Roma, extending their unbeaten streak to a remarkable 49 games. In a rematch of last season's semifinal, Leverkusen faced Roma, who came into the match trailing 2-0 on aggregate. Despite Roma's limited possession, they managed to level the tie with penalties from Leandro Paredes in each half.


As the match progressed towards extra time, Leverkusen seized the opportunity in stoppage time. Alex Grimaldo's corner caused chaos in Roma's defense, with goalkeeper Mile Svilar failing to secure the ball, resulting in an own goal by Gianluca Mancini. Leverkusen's Josip Stanisic then sealed their victory with a counterattack goal in the seventh minute of added time, breaking Benfica's European unbeaten record dating back to 1965.


Bundesliga champions Leverkusen will now face Atalanta in the final, keeping their hopes of a remarkable treble alive. Leverkusen's manager, Alonso, made tactical changes for the match, including leaving key attackers on the bench. However, Leverkusen maintained their rhythm, displaying creative and fluid movement on the pitch.


Roma, on the other hand, resorted to physical play, earning four yellow cards within the first 30 minutes. Despite Leverkusen's dominance, Roma managed to capitalize on set-pieces, with Paredes converting two penalties to level the tie. However, Leverkusen's resilience paid off as they secured a late victory, showcasing their determination and securing their place in the final.
