Leverkusen Crush Bochum, Extend Unbeaten Run to 50 Games

Leverkusen Crush Bochum, Extend Unbeaten Run to 50 Games

Bayer Leverkusen continued their phenomenal run of form with a resounding 5-0 victory over Bochum on Sunday. This emphatic win not only extended their unbeaten streak across all competitions to a staggering 50 games, but it also served as sweet revenge for their defeat to Bochum on the final day of last season.

Despite Bochum making a promising start, the match quickly turned in Leverkusen’s favor. A red card for Bochum’s Felix Passlack in the 15th minute for a cynical foul on Nathan Tella proved to be a turning point. The visitors capitalized on their numerical advantage, with Patrik Schick opening the scoring just before halftime. A penalty converted by Victor Boniface right before the break further solidified Leverkusen’s control.

The second half was a one-sided affair as Leverkusen continued to dictate the pace. Amine Adli added a third goal in the 76th minute, followed by a powerful strike from Josip Stanisic ten minutes later. Stanisic then turned provider, setting up Alejandro Grimaldo for a late goal that capped off a dominant performance.

Speaking after the match, Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso expressed his satisfaction with the result and stressed the importance of winning their final Bundesliga game against Augsburg without a defeat. Achieving this feat would be a historic first for the club.

Leverkusen’s focus now shifts to completing a sensational treble. Having already secured the Bundesliga title, they are gearing up for the upcoming finals of the German Cup and the Europa League. As midfielder Robert Andrich mentioned, lifting the Bundesliga trophy at home next week will be a highly emotional moment for the club and its fans. The team then sets its sights on Dublin and Berlin for the Europa League and German Cup finals, respectively.

“I think already the Bundesliga—you can’t imagine how much that means for the club or the fans,” Andrich said. We’ll lift the trophy next week in our stadium. It’s going to be very emotional. And then we go to Dublin and Berlin. We want to get two titles there and then go on vacation with the triple in our backpack.”

While Leverkusen celebrates, Bochum finds itself in a different situation. Despite a brave start, the red card and subsequent goals conceded significantly hampered their chances. While they secured their Bundesliga survival with the current result, they face a crucial final fixture against Werder Bremen next weekend.

Leverkusen’s current form is truly remarkable. Not only have they remained unbeaten for a record-breaking 50 games, but they are also on the cusp of achieving a historic treble. Their match against Bochum showcased their dominance and their unwavering determination to continue their winning ways. The coming weeks will be a true test for the team as they chase ultimate glory on all three fronts.
