Men in Blazers 05/21/24: European Nights with Rory Smith

5/21/2024
THE EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL. One team's quest for perfection, another's chance to vanquish their cup demons. Bayer Leverkusen vs. Atalanta has all the makings of a classic Europa League Final clash. And this week, Rog and Rory breakdown these two clubs and their respective remarkable seasons. Bayer Leverkusen has answered all questions asked of them thus far...51 matches unbeaten and an undefeated Bundesliga season...but only one query remains: would a Europa League victory make this the greatest club season ever? And as for Atalanta, the team from small-town Bergamo has already slayed giants Liverpool and Marseille en route to the final...can they do it once more and, in doing so, cast off the cloud of cup disappointment that has long haunted the club? All of this and more on the latest European Nights. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
