The midfielder of Bayer Leverkusen, Granit Xhaka, said after the match that he is not worried about stopping the positive progress of the results, but about losing the final of the Europa League.

"It has nothing to do with the progress of the results. It's about the match. We lost, this is football. I congratulate Atalanta, that's all. Too bad things didn't go well, we didn't make it. But on the weekend we have another final. We knew that Atalanta would put us under pressure, we lost the ball, but we will do better at the weekend", said Xhaka.

Leverkusen was defeated after 51 consecutive matches in all competitions of the current edition.

Leverkusen won the Bundesliga for the first time in history, while on Saturday they will play in the German Cup final against Kaiserslautern.

In the course of 51 games without defeat, Leverkusen had 42 wins and 9 draws.
