Season for ages for Bayern Leverkusen

This victory marks the culmination of a truly exceptional campaign for Leverkusen. The club secured their first ever Bundesliga title, ending years of Bayern Munich dominance. Now, they’ve added the DFB-Pokal to the cabinet, their first since the 1992-93 season.

While they fell short in the Europa League final against Atalanta, Leverkusen can boast an incredible record of 43 wins, 9 draws, and just 1 defeat across all competitions this season.

Xabi Alonso stays, Bayer Leverkusen eyes more glory

The architect of this success, Xabi Alonso, has already committed his future to the club, rejecting advances from Bayern Munich.

With a hungry squad and a world-class manager at the helm, Leverkusen will be looking to defend their Bundesliga title and challenge for further silverware in the upcoming season.
