- Atalanta have knocked out Sporting, Liverpool and Marseille

Europe's second-tier club competition comes to a climax in Dublin when German champions Bayer Leverkusen aim to continue their fantastic season with victory over Italian side Atalanta in the Europa League final.

We have picked out a four-pronged Bet Builder option for the final at the Aviva Stadium which pays out at 6/1 with LiveScore Bet.

Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen (Wednesday, 8pm)

Bet 1: Bayer Leverkusen to win

Leverkusen are favourites to lift the Europa League and understandably so due to their magnificent unbeaten campaign.

Xabi Alonso's side have gone on a European-record 51-game unbeaten run throughout 2023-24 and two more victories would secure an historic treble with the German Cup final still to come against second-tier Kaiserslautern this weekend.

Since winning the Bundesliga back on April 14, they have shown few signs of stepping off the gas and ended their triumphant league season with a 2-1 victory over Augsburg on Saturday.

Atalanta will be difficult opponents in the final, the Italians have impressed with wins over Sporting, Liverpool and Marseille in the knockout stages, with the 3-0 away win at Anfield particularly eye-catching, disposing of the then-outright favourites.

However, Leverkusen are on the brink of history and they do not look like a side about to stumble now.

Bet 2: Both teams to score - Yes

The second part of the bet builder is for both teams to score in Dublin in what should be an entertaining final.

With plenty of attacking talent on show, we should expect goals at both ends.

Atalanta have scored in eight of their last nine games in all competitions, while both teams have scored in six of Leverkusen's last eight matches as the German champions have conceded more goals since winning the title.

Furthermore, La Dea have scored in all but one of their Europa League games this season, with a total of 22 goals in the competition so far, while Leverkusen have scored in every one of their games en route to Dublin, racking up an even-better tally of 31.

Bet 3: Over 8 corners in the match for both teams combined

Adding in over eight corners for both teams combined further boosts the Bet Builder and it seems likely there will be at least nine corners in the clash considering both finalists' penchant for attacking football.

There were 12 corners in Leverkusen's 2-2 second-leg draw with Roma in the semi, while there have been an average of seven corners in the treble-chasers' games across the whole season.

The average corners figure jumps up to 9.5 per game when looking at the stats for Atalanta's games this season, so there should be set-pieces aplenty at both ends in this Aviva Stadium clash.

Bet 4: Patrik Schick to score anytime

Patrik Schick is an obvious anytime goalscorer choice to complete the four-part Bet Builder as the Leverkusen frontman appears to like this competition.

The 28-year-old has scored five goals in the Europa League to help his side reach the final and he has 13 in all competitions for the Germans — not bad considering he has made just 17 starts in league and cup.

The Czech Republic international has had his injury issues this term, which is why his playing time has been limited, but, when fit, has generally been a starter under Alonso.
