Robert Pires has spoken about the Europa League final, where Xavi Alonso’s unstoppable Bayer Leverkusen take on Atalanta at the Aviva Stadium this evening. The former Arsenal player has revealed his favorite for this promising match.

“It’s very difficult, because in the final, you’re at the last stage, but it’s not enough, you have to win the last game. I experienced that against Barcelona in the Champions League and Parma in the UEFA Cup. It’s difficult, but you have to believe in yourself, your coach and your team-mates. That’s top-level soccer: sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,” declared Pires, before acknowledging that the Germans had a slight advantage. “I think both teams deserve this final. The important thing now is to lift the trophy. Atalanta played a great competition, I saw their match against Marseille in the semi-final and they have a very strong team. However, Leverkusen have a slight advantage, being German champions, with great players and experience. It’s a good challenge between an experienced coach and an emerging one. I hope to see a lot of goals,” he concluded.
