Nigeria’s Lookman Scores As Atalanta Beat Marseille To Reach First Europa League Final 


Atalanta’s Ademola Lookman, Matteo Ruggeri and El Bilal Toure scored to send the Italian side into their first-ever Europa League final with a 3-0 win over Olympique de Marseille on Thursday.

The Italians progressed to the final on a 4-1 aggregate victory.

Lookman put Atalanta ahead in the second leg on the half-hour with a long-range strike past Pau Lopez before setting up Ruggeri to double the lead seven minutes after the break.

Substitute Toure put the nail in Marseille’s coffin with a goal in the 94th minute.

Atalanta, who face Juventus in the Italian Cup final on Wednesday, are fifth in Serie A and have their sights set on a Champions League qualifying spot.

The Italians, who have never before reached a European final, will meet Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League showpiece match in Dublin on May 22.
