Amine Adli in search of a fifth Moroccan triumph

Qualified for the final of the Europa League, the second European club competition, Bayer Leverkusen is preparing to face Atalanta this Wednesday. Amine Adli could thus become the fifth Moroccan player to win this trophy.

After an extraordinary season, Amine Adli and Bayer Leverkusen, German champions, hope to win a second title. In addition, the Atlas Lion has the opportunity to join the pantheon of Moroccan players who have managed to distinguish themselves in the Europa League.

The Moroccans who have already won this competition are goalkeeper Yassine Bounou and striker Youssef En-Nesyri, both centerpieces of the Andalusian club during their triumphs in 2019-20 and 2022-23. While Munir El Haddadi won the 2019-20 edition.

Another Moroccan player who has left his mark is Ayman Barkok, who played with Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2021-22 season. Although he only played one match against Olympiakos, his contribution was enough to write his name in the history of Moroccan football in Europe.

This season in C3, the 24-year-old Moroccan international played 12 matches, scoring a single goal against Häcken (4-0) in the group stage. Amine Adli also provided two assists, against Häcken (same match) and Molde (2-1), also during the elimination phase of the competition.

As a quick reminder, the final between the Italian team Atalanta and the Germans Bayer Leverkusen is scheduled for this Wednesday, May 22 from 8 p.m., on the lawn of the Aviva stadium in Dublin.
