Leverkusen to finally end Bayern dominance with record breaking victory 

This weekend could be it, the moment Bayer Leverkusen fans have been dreaming about.

Victory against a Werder Bremen side that are winless in their six matches (D2 L4), would see Xabi Alonso’s unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen team become Bundesliga champions for the first time in their history and the 13th different side to win the competition. With 76 points after 28 games, Bayer are playing the second-best season of any team in Bundesliga history after Bayern in 2013/14 (78 points) and another victory here would end Bayern Munich’s dominance after 11 consecutive seasons at champions.

Not only that, but a win or a draw here would see them become the first side in Bundesliga history not to lose any of their opening 29 games of a season in the competiton,breaking Pep Guardiola’s record of 28 with Bayern in 2013/14 and equal Juventus’ record of the most games unbeaten by a top five European side across all competitions this centrury (43 matches).

A 2-0 victory over West Ham in midweek moved them one step closer to the Europa League semi-finals and a historic treble after already booking their place in the DFB-Pokal final against Kaiserslautern, with Xabi Alonso on the verge of possibly completing the biggest ever acheivement in managerial history, especially if they manage to complete the entire season unbeaten across all competitions.
