In a historic Sunday showdown, Bayer Leverkusen captured their first Bundesliga title, demolishing Werder Bremen 5-0 and ending Bayern Munich's 11-year reign as champions. This monumental victory not only marks Leverkusen's first league win in their 120-year history but also disrupts the long-standing dominance of Bayern Munich in German football.

Under the guidance of Xabi Alonso, Leverkusen demonstrated a controlled and dominant performance, highlighted by a hat-trick from Florian Wirtz. Additional goals from Victor Boniface and Granit Xhaka helped extend their remarkable unbeaten streak to 43 games across all competitions. Leverkusen's prowess this season has been unexpected, as they were not initially favored to win the title, with forecasts heavily favoring Bayern to secure a 12th consecutive championship and Borussia Dortmund seen as a strong contender.

Alonso, the Spanish coach at the helm of Leverkusen, has steered the team toward potentially the first invincible season in Bundesliga history. With the German Cup final still ahead and ongoing competition in the Europa League, Leverkusen’s triumphant campaign could gather further accolades.

With five matches remaining in the season, Leverkusen has accumulated an impressive 79 points, a clear 16 points ahead of the second-placed Bayern Munich. This season also saw them set a new Bundesliga record for the most undefeated matches in a single campaign.

Key players contributing to this successful season include Alex Grimaldo, a standout left wingback who joined as a free transfer; experienced midfielder Granit Xhaka; the homegrown talent Florian Wirtz, who dazzled with his hat-trick performance; and Nigerian striker Victor Boniface, who has earned five Bundesliga rookie awards this season.

Leverkusen’s path to their maiden title has been a long one, marked by five runner-up finishes in their history. This victory not only breaks that cycle but also sets a new era of potential dominance and success for the club in German and European football.
