Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso has worked wonders with a club who had earned the nickname 'Neverkusen' due to their lack of trophies, but it now looks like 'Neverlusen' would be more appropriate, particularly given their penchant for turning results in their favour with late goals. Can they keep their record-breaking unbeaten run going and add more silverware in the process?

Atalanta have lost three Coppa Italia finals in the past six seasons, most recently to Juventus last week, but they come into the Europa League final with seven wins in their last 10 games in all competitions, and, in Gianluca Scamacca, an in-form striker. His performance could be crucial if La Dea are to end Leverkusen's astonishing run and make history for the Italian club. 

Here's how the teams line up:

Atalanta XI: Musso (GK); Djimsiti, Hien, Kolasinac; Zappacosta, Ederson, Koopmeiners, Ruggeri; De Ketalaere, Scamacca, Lookman.

Bayer Leverkusen XI: Kovar (GK); Tapsoba, Tah, Stanisic; Hincapie, Palacios, Xhaka, Frimpong; Grimaldo, Wirtz, Adli.
