With a decisive 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen on Sunday, Bayer Leverkusen ended Bayern Munich’s 11-year reign as the Bundesliga champion for the first time in the club’s 120-year history.

With five games remaining, Xabi Alonso’s team knew that victory would guarantee the championship.

They put on a commanding display worthy of champions, stretching their incredible winning streak to 43 games in all competitions.Granit Xhaka, Victor Boniface, and Florian Wirtz all scored goals to complete the victory.

However, Boniface, whose goal-scoring prowess has been essential to Leverkusen’s title challenge, was quick to downplay individual accolades.”I never lead anyone astray. We lead ourselves,” the Nigerian striker stated on social media on Monday, highlighting the teamwork that contributed to the team’s accomplishments.

Despite missing four months of action due to injury, Boniface opened the scoring in the 25th minute from the penalty spot and later assisted Xhaka’s goal. With just 18 Bundesliga appearances this season, he now has 11 goals and 9 assists.

“For the club, this is a very special moment,” Alonso stated. Being the first team to win the Bundesliga in 120 years is an extremely unique accomplishment. The athletes are elite. I am really pleased with everyone.

After winning their first-ever Bundesliga title on Sunday with a 5-0 victory over Werden Bremen, Bayer Leverkusen fans stormed the BayArena. Leverkusen is still in the running for an unprecedented treble, with the DFB-Pokal and UEFA Europa League still up for grabs.

With the Bundesliga title secured, they have the chance to become the first team to go undefeated in a full Bundesliga campaign.
