Who will win the 2024 UEFA Europa League?

Bayer Leverkusen

Leverkusen enter the 2024 Europa League final as favourites to lift the trophy, according to the best sports betting sites.

This prediction is bolstered by their astonishing unbeaten run across all competitions, currently standing at a record-breaking 50 games. Betking has Leverkusen at 1.40 odds to win the tournament outright and 1.81 odds to win the final in regulation time.

Leverkusen’s path to the final has been nothing short of dramatic. They topped their group before edging past Qarabag in a thrilling round-of-16 clash with a 5-4 aggregate victory. Trailing 2-0 in both legs, they displayed incredible resilience, drawing the first leg 2-2 and securing a scarcely believable 3-2 win in the return leg at home thanks to Patrik Schick’s brace in the 93rd and 98th minutes.

Their journey continued with a more straightforward 3-1 victory over West Ham in the quarter-finals. However, the semi-final clash against Roma, who defeated them at the same stage last season, was another heart-stopping affair.

After a 2-0 first-leg win in Rome, Leverkusen found themselves trailing 2-0 at home after two penalties from Leandro Paredes, their unbeaten run seemingly on the verge of ending.

Yet, the drama continued. Gianluca Mancini’s own goal gave Leverkusen a lifeline before substitute Josip Stanišić scored a dramatic late equalizer after a solo run, unleashing delirium in the stands and keeping their unbeaten run alive.

This sets the stage for a thrilling final in Dublin, where Leverkusen, also in the DFB Pokal’s final, will face Atalanta, bidding to win a historic treble and complete one of the most remarkable achievements in football history.

Atalanta

While labelled underdogs at 3.00 odds on Betking to win the 2024 Europa League, Atalanta shouldn’t be underestimated. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team boasts a winning record against Leverkusen, having defeated them in both legs of the 2021-22 Europa League round of 16.

The Serie A side have also displayed impressive consistency throughout the tournament. They topped their group and overcame PSV Eindhoven 3-2 on aggregate in the last 16.

Having failed to make it past the quarter-finals in the tournament (1990/91, 2021/22), bookmakers had Atalanta as a massive 8.51 odds underdogs in the betting ahead of their first leg of their quarter-final clash against Liverpool. But La Dea delivered a masterclass in a dominant 3-0 win at Anfield that sent shockwaves around Europe and firmly established their title credentials.

While they fell to a 1-0 defeat in the return leg at the Gewiss Stadium, their place in the semis was already assured. Continuing their strong run, Atalanta secured a convincing 4-1 aggregate victory over Marseille in the semi-finals to reach their first-ever European final, a significant achievement for the club.

Atalanta’s primary motivation may be more than simply securing a Champions League spot through the Europa League final. Currently sitting in 5th place in Serie A, qualification through the league is also a possibility. However, the chance to claim their first-ever European trophy remains a significant motivator.

While Betking offers 4.25 odds for an Atalanta victory, their showing in this season’s competition and past success against Leverkusen suggest they are capable of causing an upset in the 2024 Europa League final.

Who will referee the Europa League final?

Romanian referee István Kovács of Romania will officiate the 2024 Europa League final. This will be his second UEFA club competition final as a referee, having also taken charge of the 2022 UEFA Europa Conference League showpiece between Roma and Feyenoord in Tirana.
