Anticipation is mounting ahead of Bayer Leverkusen’s Europa League final

Bayer Leverkusen are just hours away from being crowned Europa League champions while simultaneously extending their unbeaten run in all competitions. As well as this, if Xabi Alonso’s side are to overcome Atalanta in Dublin, then it would see Die Werkself lift their second trophy of the season.

Having proven their might domestically and continentally over the course of this campaign, Leverkusen appear to be the best team on the planet. Therefore, the Italian side will have to be at the top of their game if they are to prevail.

However, they too have displayed their credentials in the Europa League this season, dismantling Liverpool at Anfield before breezing past Marseille in the second leg of their semi-final tie. With both sides showing how dangerous they can be, this final presents itself as one of the most must-see Europa League finals in recent history.

Consequently, this has seen anticipation mount in the Irish capital. With the fan park open in Dublin, GGFN’s Daniel Pinder has been sharing the build-up ahead of tonight’s clash on X.

As kick-off approaches, the nerves among the Leverkusen fans will continue to rise. Nevertheless, as stated during the week by Xabi Alonso, his side are more than ready for their meeting with Atalanta, as they look to put themselves on course for an unprecedented treble.
