Battle of brothers in Dublin: Lookman or Boniface, who comes out on top in Europa League final? 

In an electrifying encounter, Nigerian forwards Ademola Lookman and Victor Boniface are set to clash as Atalanta take on Bayer Leverkusen in Wednesday's anticipated UEFA Europa League final in Dublin, with the victor claiming the coveted title. 

This thrilling showdown promises to be a spectacle, as both players have already made their mark in the competition.

Boniface, spearheading Bayer Leverkusen's attack, has been instrumental in their remarkable 12-match unbeaten run in the Europa League. 

His impressive form has seen him score five goals and provide one assist in the competition this season. Leverkusen's triumph over Roma in the semi-finals has set the stage for a breathtaking showdown.

Meanwhile, Lookman has been a driving force for Atalanta, helping them secure a spot in the final. 

His team's 3-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield showcased their prowess, and he netted a goal himself as his side overcame Marseille to reach the final. 

Lookman's three-goal contributions in the competition have been crucial to Atalanta's success.

The stage is set for an epic battle at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, with both players vying for the top honor. 

The encounter promises to be a clash of styles, with Boniface's clinical finishing pitted against Lookman's creative flair. 

Whoever emerges victorious will etch closer to a possible podium finish as the highly coveted 2024 CAF awards.

This showdown is more than just a game; it's a celebration of Nigerian talent on the European stage. 

The likes of Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Moses and Mikel Obi have already tasted success in the competition, and now either Boniface or Lookman is poised to follow in their footsteps. 

The Dublin final is sure to be an electrifying encounter, with the world watching to see which Nigerian star will shine brightest.
