Bayer Leverkusen Matches European Record: 48 Unbeaten Games | Bundesliga

Bayer Leverkusen’s commanding 5-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt marks their 48th consecutive unbeaten game across all competitions, a feat that matches Benfica’s legendary record set between December 1963 and February 1965.

Despite missing Xabi Alonso due to suspension, the Spanish tactician witnessed his side’s triumph from the press tribune, as they comfortably secured victory in Hessen.

The match saw Granit Xhaka open the scoring, only for Hugo Ekitike to equalize for Eintracht. However, the hosts’ inability to capitalize on opportunities proved costly, allowing Patrik Schick to restore Leverkusen’s lead just before halftime.

In the second half, goals from Exequiel Palacios, Jeremie Frimpong, and Victor Boniface sealed the win, leaving no doubts about the outcome.

The victory adds to Bayer Leverkusen’s historic season under Xabi Alonso’s leadership. With a Europa League semifinal clash against AS Roma looming, Leverkusen holds a 2-0 advantage from the first leg. Following European pursuits, they face Bundesliga fixtures against Bochum and Augsburg before contesting the DFB Pokal final against Kaiserslautern in May.

Amidst their remarkable run, Leverkusen remains focused, with aspirations for an unbeaten campaign and potentially more silverware on the horizon. The season’s narrative suggests that the best may be yet to come for Alonso and his determined squad.
