2024 Europa League final odds, expert picks: Bayer Leverkusen or Atalanta?

0

All eyes will be on the Europa League final as Bayer Leverkusen gun for their unprecedented unbeaten season and historic treble, set to take on Greek giants Olympiacos in Dublin.

Leverkusen have already set the European record for longest unbeaten streak in top flight football history, with the second-leg victory over Roma at home their 50th straight match without defeat. Now, they’ll hope to reach the Europa League final on May 22 with a shot at setting up a historic finish to the season.

They’ll meet Atalanta, who are in a vicious battle with Roma for fifth in the Serie A table, which is a qualifying place for next year’s Champions League thanks to Italy’s performance in Europe this season. They can confirm their spot in the competition next year by winning here, regardless of table finish, which would be a famous win over the apparent team of destiny. 

With the matchup set, the run-up to the game can officially begin and the two clubs now look forward to two weeks of preparation and speculation. The Sporting News gets things started with an early look at the match for all the marbles on May 22.

According to BetMGM, Bayer Leverkusen are unsurprisingly the early betting favorite, and given their status as the unbeaten European darlings, that is unlikely to change as the match draws nearer. Here are the full initial odds as available from BetMGM in the United States.

At this stage of the season, after everything Xabi Alonso has dragged this team through, picking against the European darlings would be not just foolhardy but downright silly. Atalanta are an extremely well-coached team, and will be up to the challenge, but Leverkusen have pulled too many rabbits out of too many hats this year to think they can’t do it again. (Follow Kyle on X/Twitter)

The chance to create history and keep them on track for a historic treble is enough motivation for Xabi Alonso’s men, that no team is going to stand in their way. It may not be a goal-fest like some of Leverkusen’s matches this season but they’ll find a way to edge past their opponent in Dublin.
