“Watch| Breaking the Bundesliga Mold: Bayer Leverkusen Shatters Bayern Munich’s 11-Year Reign with Maiden Title Triumph”


Bayer Leverkusen broke an 11-year hold on Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga dominance since 1993 to clinch their first trophy. Led by Xabi Alonso, Leverkusen secured their maiden Bundesliga title with a resounding 5-0 victory over SV Werder Bremen on Sunday, scripting history.

Win under Alonso

Alonso, the former midfield maestro for Real Madrid and Liverpool, took charge of Leverkusen in October 2022, initiating a new era in the Bundesliga, which many didn’t anticipate but aimed to revolutionize German football.

Leverkusen’s unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga

Under his guidance, Leverkusen is currently on an unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga, with 25 wins, 4 draws, and 79 points from 29 matches, setting a league record. With five games left, Leverkusen secured the Bundesliga title, ending Bayern Munich’s dominance in the league. It was the first time since 2012 that Bayern failed to secure the league title, with Alonso orchestrating their downfall.
When Alonso took over Leverkusen, they were second after eight Bundesliga matches, but the Spaniard instilled confidence in the players and transformed their mentality.

6th in previous season

They finished sixth on the table the previous season after making a tremendous recovery. They signed prolific scorer Harry Kane with the intention of unseating Bayern Munich, but their goals for this season were higher. Leverkusen’s ability to maintain their form was questioned by many, but Alonso kept them together, and they got better every time they played.

Leverkusen’s Team game

They performed well as a team, not depending just on individual talent to win. Florian Wirtz and Victor Boniface jointly lead with 11 goals each this season. There wasn’t much competition in the Bundesliga this season as champions Leverkusen built a significant 16-point lead over Bayern with five matches remaining.

Wirtz made sure that no one had to wait for another game to feel the rush of victory by scoring an amazing hat-trick on Sunday. Their astounding 43-game winning streak this season across all competitions was boosted by their 5-0 victory.

Xabi Alonso’s reaction

Leverkusen still has a long way to go in this season, even though they are far from winning the German Cup and taking a 2-0 lead against West Ham United in the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals.

Coach Xabi Alonso of Bayer Leverkusen said, “With a great team and a great club, this is a momentous occasion.” A championship win is always memorable. It’s the first time in Leverkusen’s history, so you have to savor it. Celebrate with fans, it’s an honor to work for this club, for families.”
