BREAKING: 60 Years Trophy Drought Broken As Lookman Nets Hat-Trick To Win 2024 Europa League Trophy For Atalanta, Ends Leverkusen Unbeaten Run—-Ademola Lookman produced a European final performance for the ages as his magnificent hat-trick fired Atalanta to UEFA Europa League glory with a 3-0 victory over Bayern Leverkusen in Dublin.

 

 

Xabi Alonso’s Bundesliga champions completed their undefeated league campaign with a 2-1 win over Augsburg at the weekend and they had not been beaten in any of their 51-games this term.

 

 

It meant the end of a historic effort that has captured the imagination of football fans across Europe and beyond, but Atalanta are also wonderful story.

 

 

Veteran coach Gian Piero Gasperini is a tireless innovator and an expert when it comes to nurturing young talent, along with elevating gifted players who have fallen on hard times or short of their potential.

 

 

In that respect, former Everton and RB Leipzig youngster Lookman was the perfect matchwinner on the greatest night in the Serie A club’s existence. After three Coppa Italia final defeats in the Gasperini era, Atalanta can finally celebrate their first piece of silverware since 1963.
