Bayer Leverkusen thrash Werder Bremen to secure first-ever Bundesliga title

Xabi Alonso and co. only needed a win against Werder Bremen to mathematically secure the Bundesliga title. However, looking back at the trajectory of Leverkusen’s season, a simple win wouldn’t have done justice to their historic triumph. That was the case on Sunday night as Florian Wirtz and his teammates put on a show for the home crowd.

An amazing five goals were put past the Bremen defense as 5-0 read the scoreline at the full-time whistle. Victor Boniface gave his side the lead from the spot after the referee awarded a spot-kick in the 24th minute. His goal was followed by a screamer from former Arsenal man Granit Xhaka. The Swiss star unleashed a belter from long range, giving the opposition keeper no chance.

Following Leverkusen’s second, up stepped Florian Wirtz to give the home crowd one of the best displays this season. A hat-trick in just over 20 minutes saw title celebrations kick-off even before the official blew for full-time. As social media remains flooded with the dressing room celebrations and fans’ reactions of a lively Bayer Leverkusen crowd, fans can only hope for one thing – more of the same.
