Atalanta wins the first European trophy

Atalanta wins the first European trophy

For the first time in its history as a club, after 117 years since its establishment, Atalanta has won a European trophy by writing history in Dublin, Ireland, by winning the Europa League final against Bayer Leverkusen 3-0.

When least expected, Lookman put the Italians ahead in the 12th minute, showing that the positive progress of Leverkusen was coming to an end.

But when it was thought that the reaction of the Germans would come, in the 26th minute it is Lookman who scores the second personal goal and for Atalanta.

The first 45 minutes ended with these 2-0 numbers, while the second half started at the same pace and Atalanta was ready for the trophy about 15 minutes from the end of the match.

Exactly in the 75th, Leverkusen's killer is the same, Lookman, who also scores the third goal, which can also be considered the knockout goal.

Lookman becomes the hero of Gasperini's team and undoubtedly of our red and black captain and theirs, Berat Gjimshiti, who becomes the first Albanian player to lift a Europa League trophy.
