Leverkusen's Late Rally Secures Victory Against Hoffenheim, Edges Closer to Bundesliga Title

Leverkusen, which has not tasted defeat in 39 matches across all competitions this season, now sits comfortably at the top of the league table with 73 points from seven games remaining. Their closest competitors, Bayern Munich, are trailing by 13 points and were set to play Borussia Dortmund later that same day.

This game came just a day after Leverkusen’s coach, Xabi Alonso, made headlines by confirming his stay with the team amidst speculations of moves to other major European clubs. Despite dominating the game’s pace early on, Leverkusen initially struggled to find their rhythm, with Hoffenheim’s Maximilian Beier quieting the home fans by scoring in the 33rd minute.

The second half saw Leverkusen intensify their efforts, creating numerous opportunities but finding themselves thwarted by Hoffenheim’s goalkeeper, Oliver Baumann, whose double save in the 76th minute was particularly noteworthy. The game’s dynamics began to shift when Alonso introduced Borja Iglesias, who hit the crossbar shortly after coming on, signaling Leverkusen’s increasing pressure.

The breakthrough finally came in the 88th minute with Andrich’s goal, followed by Schick’s stoppage-time volley, epitomizing Leverkusen’s resilient spirit this season. This spirit was also evident in their Europa League Round of 16 comeback against Qarabag earlier in the month, where they overcame a two-goal deficit in both legs to advance with a 5-4 aggregate win.

Leverkusen, aiming for their first major title in over three decades, is set to face Fortuna Dusseldorf in the German Cup semi-final. Their current tally of 73 points ties the club’s record set during the 1999-2000 season, underscoring an exceptional campaign.
