The Atalanta vs Bayer Leverkusen live stream today is a Europa League final that has all the hallmarks of a classic. Seeking to end a 61-year major trophy drought, La Dea are in their first European showpiece, while Die Werkself are still unbeaten in 2023/24 and chasing history — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN and potentially for free!

The teams are in and both sides are as close to full strength as they can get. Atalanta  captain Marten de Roon misses out through injury but Teun Koopmeiners, Ademola Lookman, Charles de Ketelaere and Gianluca Scamacca are all in from the off. Mario Pasalic is on the bench.

For Leverkusen, Florian Wirtz, Granit Xhaka and Josip Stanisic are all back in the side after being rested at the weekend. Alex Girmaldo, Amine Adli and Jonathan Tah all start. Victor Boniface, though the team's top scorer, returns to his substitute duties.

Atalanta have already secured Champions League football next season, but the Europa League final is about much more than qualification to the continent's biggest tournament next term. La Dea haven't lifted a major trophy since the Coppa Italia in 1963 and failed to end that final hex with a 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the final of the same tournament a week ago. Gian Piero Gasperini's attacking side have knocked out Sporting, Liverpool and Marseille en route to Dublin and much will depend on Gianluca Scamacca and midfielder Teun Koopmeiners if they're to cause the upset.

Bayer Leverkusen are chasing history. Die Werkself are now 51 games unbeaten in 2023/24 and just two matches from securing a so-called 'Invincible Treble'. Xabi Alonso's bright young side wrapped up the Bundesliga at the weekend with a 2-1 defeat of Augsburg and now have the Europa League and German Cup finals to come. Two-nil down with eight minutes to go of the semi-final second leg against Roma, Leverkusen somehow snatched a draw to remain unbeaten. With Florian Wirtz the creative genius and Victor Boniface top scorer, Alonso has built a fearsome side.
