Leverkusen’s Treble Hunt: Can They Conquer Bundesliga, UEL & DFB Pokal?

Remember the 72-10 Chicago Bulls? Or the 73-9 Golden State Warriors? Those are the best team performances during an NBA regular season, but only one of the two managed to get the ring. Well, Bayer Leverkusen already won the Bundesliga, but they know that winning the UEL and the DFB Pokal would make this season unforgettable.

Regarding the UEL, Leverkusen is 9-3-0. They won Group H without any trouble and then eliminated Qarabag, West Ham United, and AS Roma. Patrick Schick and Victor Boniface have scored five goals each. They’re followed by Florian Wirtz with four and Jeremie Frimpong with three.

Wirtz was named the Bundesliga Player of the Season.

Defensively, Lukas Hradecky kept more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper with 15. Summing up, this team is insanely good on both sides of the field!


Nobody explains it better than Amine Adli: “We play until the end, until the last minute, until the referee’s whistle, and this is why things go in our favor. You can see a lot of teams, when they are losing 2-1, and they know it’s the last minute, they can say: OK, today we will lose, and they don’t even try to score any later in the game. But us, until the game is finished, we just try to score.”

Atalanta’s Last Shot at Glory: Can They Upset Favored Leverkusen?

This will be Atalanta’s second final in the 2023-24 season. They faced Juventus in the Coppa Italia finale and lost 1-0. That means winning the UEL championship game is their last chance to win a title.

Most recently, they defeated Lecce 2-0 with Charles De Ketelaere and Gianluca Scamacca as the scorers. Make sure to keep an eye on Scamacca because he’s the team’s top scorer in all competitions with 18 goals, scoring five of those in Atalanta’s last 10 matches.

“We had some incredible games, like the first and second leg against Sporting Lisbon, Liverpool, Marseille; however, they are all difficult matches on pitches and in stadiums with very strong atmospheres. It was a great test for us because we rose to the occasion. Now we just need to put the icing on the cake,” said the striker during an interview.

If you’re looking for Atalanta players to include in your soccer picks, I have good news. Scamacca isn’t the only one who can score. Teun Koopmeiners has scored 15 goals, De Ketelaere 14, and Ademola Lookman has scored 12.

This will be Atalanta’s first final in a UEFA competition, while Bayer Leverkusen returns after losing the 2002 Champions League final against Real Madrid. I expect Leverkusen to win, but Atalanta will put up a good fight, enough to also recommend you take both teams to score in the match at -130 betting odds.
