For Leverkusen it’s not just about the championship on Sunday. The Werkself can also set an incredible unbeaten record. Coach Xabi Alonso’s team hasn’t lost once this season.

More news about the Bundesliga

Bayer coach Xabi Alonso could be a real sensation this season. The first championship in the club’s history is within reach and there is the prospect of further success, even beyond the German championship.

“Vizekusen” becomes “Meisterkusen”

There are many indications that Leverkusen will finally break away from the “Vizekusen” stigma. Bayer 04 is often said to have the reputation of being the “eternal second”.

The main trigger for this was the 2001/2002 season, when Leverkusen came second in the Bundesliga as well as in the DFB Cup and the Champions League. Bayer’s last title was some time ago: in 1993, Leverkusen won the DFB Cup for the first and last time.

Werkself can equal Juventus record

Bayer secured a 2-0 win against West Ham United in the Europa League last Thursday and is now on the verge of equaling Juventus Turin’s previously unchallenged record.

The “Old Lady” managed not to suffer a single defeat in 43 games in the 2011/12 season. Only Celtic Glasgow came close to the record with 42 games unbeaten in a row in the 2016/17 season.

On Sunday, the Bundesliga leaders will have the chance to draw level with Juve in the game against Werder Bremen.

Leverkusen is still in the race everywhere

In the current Bundesliga season, Leverkusen is in first place in the table, 16 points ahead of VfB Stuttgart and FC Bayern. However, things are not only looking good in the title race in the Bundesliga.

Bayer 04 created a promising foundation for the upcoming second leg in the first leg against West Ham United. This should be the first big step towards the Europa League semi-finals.

Bayer are big favorites in the DFB Cup

Leverkusen also won the DFB Cup in the semifinals (April 3) with a 4-0 win against Fortuna Düsseldorf and secured their ticket to the cup final. With 1. FC Kaiserslautern, a two-league team is waiting for head coach Alonso’s team in the final for the first time in 13 years.

The current unbeaten streak shows that this Leverkusen team is capable of winning a treble this season – that would finally complete the sensation.
