Bayer Leverkusen are rewriting the record books in the 2023-24 season. Xabi Alonso’s men have achieved an astonishing feat, going a staggering 50 matches unbeaten across all competitions. This dominant run has seen them crowned Bundesliga champions and propelled them towards a potential treble.

Unprecedented Consistency: A Dream Campaign

Leverkusen’s campaign has been a masterclass in consistency. In the Bundesliga, they boast an impressive record of 27 wins and 6 draws from 33 matches. Their dominance extends to the DFB-Pokal, where they’ve secured five consecutive victories to reach the final. Furthermore, they remain undefeated in the Europa League, winning all six group-stage matches and recording a win and a draw in the knockout stages.

Offensive Firepower and Defensive Solidity

The foundation of Leverkusen’s success lies in their balanced approach. They’ve been a force to be reckoned with offensively, racking up 141 goals in all competitions, with a staggering 87 goals coming in the Bundesliga alone. Their defense has been equally impressive, boasting a +64 goal difference in the Bundesliga.

Key Stats Highlighting Leverkusen’s Domination

  • First team in UEFA club competition history to achieve a 50-match unbeaten streak (as per Squawka).
  • 87 points after 33 Bundesliga matches.
  • 41st win across all competitions this season (as of May 15th, 2024).
  • 68% ball possession against Bochum, with 10 shots on target compared to Bochum’s zero.

Alonso’s Coaching Masterclass

Xabi Alonso deserves immense credit for Leverkusen’s transformation. His tactical acumen and leadership have been instrumental in their success. In fact, Alonso has secured his 40th Bundesliga win as a manager in just 59 games. This achievement puts him in elite company, with only Pep Guardiola (48 wins) and Hansi Flick (50 wins) achieving the feat in fewer games (as per BBC).

Treble Within Reach

With only one Bundesliga match remaining, Leverkusen’s focus will undoubtedly shift towards completing the treble. The Europa League final presents a significant hurdle, but considering their current form, they are undoubtedly favorites. This team is playing with a swagger and confidence that is truly inspiring.

This is a golden era for Bayer Leverkusen. Under Xabi Alonso’s astute leadership, they are rewriting records and entertaining fans with their thrilling attacking style. The upcoming weeks will be a nerve-wracking but potentially historic period for the club and its supporters. 

Can anything stop this Leverkusen juggernaut from etching their names in the pantheon of treble winners? Nah, they’re basically a walking trophy at this point.
