Bayer Leverkusen, making history, will take on Atalanta in the Europa League final, followed by a clash with Kaiserslautern in the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday, Footballrover reports.

Atalanta, recently defeated by Juventus in the Coppa Italia final, seeks to end a 61-year trophy drought.

Despite the absence of key midfielder Marten De Roon, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side aims to break Bayer Leverkusen’s unbeaten streak.

Bayer Leverkusen, led by Xabi Alonso, has already secured the Bundesliga title and is on the cusp of achieving more glory.

Super Eagles forward Victor Boniface has been exceptional in his debut season, scoring 21 goals and providing 10 assists in 33 games, despite missing three months due to injury.

His international teammate Nathan Tella has added depth to the squad with seven goals and six assists this season.

On the other hand, Ademola Lookman has been in superb form for Atalanta, netting 12 goals and providing 8 assists this season.

This Super Eagles Derby has left many Nigerians in a huge dilemma, unsure of which compatriot to support in this highly anticipated clash.

However, the winner will replace Sevilla FC, the current champion with seven titles.
