Lookman: 10th hat-trick in a European competition’s final

*Ademola Lookman became the first player to score a hat-trick in a Europa League/UEFA Cup final since Jupp Heynckes for Borussia Gladbach in 2nd leg away win over Twente (5-1) in 1974/75.

*Lookman is the 4th Nigerian player to score in the final of a major UEFA competition, after:
Finidi George (1996 UEFA Super Cup, for Ajax),
Alex Iwobi (2019 Europa League, for Arsenal),
Joe Aribo (2022 Europa League, for Rangers).

*Before Lookman, the only African player to score multiple goals in the final of  a major UEFA competition was Sadio Mané (Senegal): a brace for Liverpool in 2019 UEFA Super Cup (vs Chelsea).

*Lookman's hat-trick is 10th in the history scored in the final of a major European competition (8th without UEFA Super Cup) and only 2nd of them scored for an Italian side, after Pierino Prati’s hat-trick for Milan against Ajax in the 1969 European Cup. 
All such hat-tricks are listed in the table, with Ferenc Puskás still the unique player to make it twice, to make it for a losing side and to score more than 3 goals in a final.
