Bayer Leverkusen on the Verge of Bundesliga Glory: The End of Bayern’s Domination

Came the day. He Bayer Leverkusen can be proclaimed champion of the Bundesliga today for the first time in its 119-year history. If they beat Werder Bremen at the BayArena (5:30 p.m., MLC) they will sing the alirón ending Bayern’s hegemony. They will do it five days before the end thanks to their 16 point advantage – now 13 -.

The Bavarians have chained 11 consecutive Salad Bowls. It seemed that no one would end the longest streak of consecutive titles in the history of the major leagues, but Xabi Alonso’s team will do so, and it will go down in eternity in fussball.

After five runners-up finishes (1997, 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2011) the myth of Neverkusen is close to being buried forever. More than 30,000 fans are preparing to achieve a highly anticipated Bundesliga. Wirtz, Frimpong, Grimaldo, Xhaka and company have the possibility of winning it today after the victories of Bayern (2-0 against Cologne) and Stuttgart (3-0 against Eintracht) yesterday afternoon.

To be honest, we would prefer to decide it ourselves on the field. The most important thing is that the fans can celebrate massively

“To be honest, we would prefer to decide it on the field. The most important thing is that the fans can celebrate massively. They deserve it a lot,” said Alonso, who is the architect, along with the CEO Fernando Carrofrom the most reliable team in Europe.

Fernando Carro, to MARCA: “Xabi Alonso has a contract and we are planning next season”

They haven’t lost all season. They have 42 unbeaten games between all the tournaments that make them caress the league title, be in the final of the DFB-Pokal – they will face Second Division Kaiserslautern on May 25 at the Olympiastadion – and be close to the semifinals of the Europa League after beating West Ham (2-0) in the first leg of the quarterfinals.

Only one game separates them from Juventus’ record, which went 43 games without losing in 2011-12. They could match it today by conquering a highly desired Bundesliga. “Of course it is a special match, but, fortunately, it is not the only opportunity we have to be champions. We are playing at home and we want to take advantage of the first match-ball,” said the Spaniard.

Grimaldo: “Xabi Alonso is special, there are not many coaches like that in the world of football

As a player, Alonso won three Bundes with Bayern (2015, 2016 and 2017). He knows what it’s like to bathe in beer and lift a salad bowl. Stanisic, on loan from the Bavarians this season at the BayArena, is the other one who has sung a German alirón in the current Bayer. Nobody else.

Going for a Pep record

With Xabi, Leverkusen has already broken its best record of points (76), wins (24) and goals (69) in a Bundesliga season… and there are still six games left until the end of the tournament!

Furthermore, their undefeated league – they have barely conceded four draws – allow them to break Pep’s record. In 2013-14, Guardiola’s Bayern was unbeaten in the first 28 days. If they do not fall to Werder Bremen, Leverkusen will reach 29. Another mark in the history of a Bayer that is at the gates of Olympus. The BundesBayern is approaching its end.

‘Leverkusenmania’ sweeps everything

The historic season of Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen has made the club’s stores in the city of 161,345 inhabitants of the stadium in North Rhine-Westphalia are razed to the ground. The flags, the t-shirts… and much of the merchandising of a team that is receiving more requests than ever before in its history have been sold out. In addition, the BayArena has had its full capacity for weeks. ‘Leverkusenmania’ is a reality. Nobody wants to miss it.
