Bayer Leverkusen, reigning Bundesliga champions, once again showcased their resilience by netting a crucial stoppage-time goal to salvage a 2-2 draw against VfB Stuttgart on home turf, extending their undefeated streak. This result brings them within three matches of achieving an unprecedented unbeaten season in the Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich secured their spot in next season’s Champions League with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, while RB Leipzig bolstered their European aspirations with a commanding 4-1 triumph over Borussia Dortmund.

Leverkusen’s captain, Lukas Hradecky, expressed astonishment at their late-game heroics, crediting the fans for their unwavering support. With this draw, Leverkusen remains undefeated in all 46 matches of the season, with three Bundesliga fixtures remaining, a German Cup final against Kaiserslautern on May 25th, and at least two Europa League semi-final matches against Roma.

Stuttgart initially seized the initiative in the second half with goals from Chris Fuhrich and Deniz Udav. Despite Leverkusen’s response through Amine Adli’s goal, their efforts were nearly thwarted by a disallowed goal. However, in a dramatic turn of events, Robert Andrich secured the equalizer in the dying moments, preserving Leverkusen’s remarkable record.

In other matches, RB Leipzig overturned an early deficit against Dortmund to secure a vital victory, while Bayern Munich edged past Frankfurt, ensuring their Champions League qualification with three games remaining. Additionally, Bayern’s Harry Kane continued his prolific form, surpassing his previous goal-scoring record during his tenure at Tottenham.

Elsewhere, Wolfsburg clinched a late 2-1 victory against 10-man Freiburg, and Werder Bremen secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Augsburg.
