Bayer Leverkusen reaffirmed their dominance in the Bundesliga, stretching their lead over Bayern Munich to 10 points with a well-deserved 3-2 victory over a resilient Freiburg side. Following Bayern’s 5-2 win against Darmstadt, which narrowed the gap to seven points, Xabi Alonso’s formidable team showcased their unwavering form with yet another impressive performance, extending their unbeaten streak to 38 matches across all competitions.

Goals from Florian Wirtz (2′), Adam Hlozek (40′), and Patrik Schick (53′) highlighted Leverkusen’s attacking prowess, effectively taming Freiburg’s resistance. Despite Freiburg managing to equalize at 1-1 and later setting up a tense finale with Yannik Keitel’s first Bundesliga goal in the 79th minute, Leverkusen maintained their composure to secure the crucial victory.

Furthermore, Leverkusen’s success isn’t confined to the Bundesliga, as they remain contenders in the DFB Cup and UEFA Europa League, having reached the semi-finals and quarter-finals respectively. With only eight fixtures remaining, Leverkusen require a mere 15 points to clinch the title, having dropped just eight points throughout the campaign so far. Their commanding performance underscores their determination to seize the championship ahead of the international break.
