As anticipation builds for the Europa League Final 2024, Atalanta BC prepares to face Bayer Leverkusen in a match that promises high drama and exceptional football.

The final, set to take place at Dublin's Aviva Stadium, pits Atalanta against a formidable Leverkusen side aiming for a treble. Here's a detailed look at the predicted lineup for Atalanta as they seek their first-ever European trophy.

Atalanta's Tactical Setup

Goalkeeper and Defense

Goalkeeper: Juan Musso is expected to be the man between the posts. The Argentine has been a reliable presence for Atalanta throughout the competition.

Defenders: Berat Djimsiti, Isak Hien, and Giorgio Scalvini are likely to form the back three. Djimsiti's experience, Hien's composure, and Scalvini's versatility will be crucial in keeping Leverkusen's potent attack at bay. With Rafael Toloi still short of full fitness, the defensive trio must step up to ensure solidity at the back.

Midfield Dynamics

Central Midfielders

Mario Pasalic and Ederson will likely control the central areas. Pasalic's ability to transition play and Ederson's box-to-box capabilities will be pivotal in countering Leverkusen's dynamic midfield.

Teun Koopmeiners, known for his vision and passing range, will play a crucial role in linking defence and attack, providing creativity and defensive cover.

Attacking Trio

Charles De Ketelaere and Ademola Lookman are expected to support the main striker.

De Ketelaere's technical skills and Lookman's pace and dribbling can stretch the opposition defence and create scoring opportunities.

Gianluca Scamacca is set to lead the line. Scamacca, who has found the net consistently in the knockout stages, including a memorable brace against Liverpool, will be Atalanta’s primary goal threat.
