Solid winner of Lecce this Saturday early evening on the occasion of the 37th day of Serie A, Atalanta Bergamo punched its ticket for the next Champions League. A good omen for the DEA before its Europa League final scheduled for Wednesday.

The two Europa League finalists are in good shape and ready to face each other this Wednesday. This Saturday late afternoon, Bayer Leverkusen beat Augsburg and finished their Bundesliga season undefeated. A few hours later, Atalanta Bergamo also left with victory. On the Lecce pitch, the DEA seriously won against the current 13th in Serie A with a score of 2-0. Thanks to its success, the eighth away of the season, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team secured its fifth place and therefore qualified for the next Champions League, regardless of the fate of the final of the C3. The Lombardy club still has two championship matches to play against Torino next week and against Fiorentina on June 2 in a late match of the 29th day.

The DEA rested its executives

Three days after losing the Italian Cup to Juventus (0-1), Atalanta Bergamo raised its head at the best of times before facing the new German champion in Dublin. In addition, Gian Piero Gasperini was even able to rest some of his executives. Indeed, striker Charles De Ketelaere did not start but his entry at half-time allowed the DEA to take control of the game three minutes later. In the process, Gianluca Scamacca doubled the lead and confirmed his incredible second half of the season with 11 goals in his last 17 matches in all competitions. He then gave up his place. Atalanta’s last Champions League campaign dates back to the 2021-2022 season with a third place in the group stage behind Manchester United and Villarreal but ahead of Young Boys Bern.
