Gifted Markson

Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen is poised to etch their names in football history as they stand on the cusp of an unprecedented achievement.

This Sunday, by avoiding defeat against Augsburg, Leverkusen can become the first team in Bundesliga history to complete a season unbeaten.

Leverkusen’s current campaign has been nothing short of extraordinary. Having clinched the Bundesliga title for the first time in their history, they have also secured places in the Europa League final and the DFB Pokal final.

Under Alonso’s astute leadership, the team has transformed from relegation candidates to champions in just over a year.

Alonso took the reins at Bayer Leverkusen on October 5, 2022, when the team languished in 17th place. By the end of the 2022/23 season, they had surged to a respectable sixth position.

This season, they have continued their meteoric rise, remaining undefeated in 50 consecutive matches across all competitions—a feat unmatched since the inception of UEFA.

During this unbeaten run, they have netted an impressive 141 goals.

Now, with just three games remaining, Leverkusen are on the brink of a legendary unbeaten treble, a milestone that would secure their legacy in world football.

The journey has been remarkable, and the football world watches with bated breath as they attempt to achieve what no other team has done before.
