Bayern Leverkusen continues their unbeaten streak as they aim for a treble of titles. On Thursday, Xabi Alonso’s team drew 2-2 against AS Roma, securing their spot in the Europa League final and surpassing Benfica’s long-standing European unbeaten record.

Showing no signs of slowing down, Leverkusen took on Bochum on Saturday, a team they had not beaten in the previous season. The game took a turn in Leverkusen’s favor when Bochum’s Felix Passlack was sent off with a straight red card in the 15th minute. Patrik Schick opened the scoring in the 41st minute, and Victor Boniface added a second just before halftime from the penalty spot.

The second half saw more dominance from Leverkusen, with Amine Adli scoring the third goal in the 76th minute. Josip Stanisic added a fourth with a low drive in the 86th minute before assisting Alejandro Grimaldo, who tapped in the fifth goal in stoppage time.

With one game left in the Bundesliga season, Leverkusen sit comfortably at the top of the table with 87 points. Their closest competitors, Bayern Munich, trail by 15 points after their 2-0 win against VfL Wolfsburg earlier on Sunday.

As Leverkusen celebrates their impressive unbeaten run, they now look ahead to two cup finals: the Europa League against Atalanta and the German Cup against Kaiserslautern. It promises to be an exciting finish to the season for the treble-chasing side.
