Leverkusen stretch unbeaten run to 50

Bayer Leverkusen stretched their season-long unbeaten run to 50 games with a 5-0 win at 10-man Bochum on Sunday (May 12). Bochum defeated a 10-man Leverkusen in May 2023, the last side to beat Xabi Alonso's side in any competition, but the tables turned on Sunday with Leverkusen's goals coming from five different scorers. Alonso's league champions are just one game away from the first unbeaten Bundesliga season and three games from a remarkable treble.

Bayer Leverkusen thrashed 10-man Bochum to notch up a half-century of unbeaten matches in all competitions.

Patrik Schick's crisp strike put Leverkusen ahead and Victor Boniface increased their lead from the penalty spot.

Amine Adli added a third in the second half with a header from a corner before late goals from Josip Stanisic and Alex Grimaldo completed the rout.

Xabi Alonso's side are now within one game of completing the first part of an invincible treble.

If Leverkusen avoid defeat in their final league game of the season – at home to Augsburg next Saturday – they will become the first team to go through a Bundesliga campaign without tasting defeat.

Bayern Munich lost just once in their title successes of 1986-87 and 2012-13.

After next weekend the Bundesliga champions face Italian side Atalanta in the Europa League final in Dublin on May 22 and play in the German Cup final against Kaiserslautern in Berlin three days later.
