Bayer Leverkusen’s Historic Run: Chasing the Invincible Treble

Bayer Leverkusen’s remarkable season continues to defy expectations and set new records as they chase an unprecedented achievement in football history – the invincible treble.

Under the guidance of manager Xabi Alonso, Leverkusen has achieved remarkable milestones, including ending Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga dominance, reaching their first European final in over two decades, and maintaining the longest unbeaten run since continental competition began.

Their recent 2-2 draw with Roma extended their unbeaten streak to 49 matches, surpassing the previous record set by Benfica in the 1960s. Leverkusen’s dominance has been evident across all competitions, with 40 victories during this incredible run.

With the Bundesliga title secured, Leverkusen now sets its sights on the German Cup and Europa League trophies, both of which they could win unbeaten this season.

Wing-back Jeremie Frimpong highlighted the team’s resilience and determination, emphasizing that no one counts them out, even in challenging situations.

Ahead of the Europa League final against Atalanta, midfielder Granit Xhaka expressed pride in the team’s achievement and acknowledged the desire to keep their unbeaten run intact.

Should Leverkusen secure victory in their remaining fixtures, they would accomplish a feat rarely seen in football – an invincible treble. While Celtic and Ajax have achieved unbeaten domestic seasons, Leverkusen’s potential triumph would surpass these feats by remaining undefeated across all competitions.

Leverkusen’s late goals and fighting spirit have been instrumental in maintaining their unbeaten streak, with 17 goals scored in the 90th minute or later this season, showcasing their resilience and determination.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves described Leverkusen’s journey as a fairytale, emphasizing the rarity and significance of their achievement at the elite level of football.

As Leverkusen prepares for the Europa League final, there is a sense of destiny surrounding the team, with hopes of securing their first European trophy in 36 years and continuing their historic unbeaten run.
