The Miracle of the Treble Awaits Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen stands on the brink of a historic achievement, one that could be considered a miracle for a team that has never won the German Football League title. They have remained in the shadow of the Bavarian giant Bayern Munich for many years, often seeing their talents lured away by their more successful rival.

Under coach Xabi Alonso, Leverkusen faces Werder Bremen on Sunday, eyeing the Bundesliga title, which is closer to their grasp than ever before. They also have their sights set on the German Cup final at the end of the season, and continue to dream of clinching the treble, with strong competition still alive in the Europa League.

Bayer Leverkusen is set to clash with English club West Ham United next Thursday in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals. Leverkusen aims to maintain their unbeaten streak, avoiding defeat in what would be their 42nd match this season across all tournaments.

Leverkusen’s remarkable run includes a series of 41 matches in various competitions without tasting defeat (36 wins and 5 draws). They need just one more win from their remaining six matches to secure the Bundesliga title, sitting 16 points ahead of Bayern Munich, the dominant force in German football for the past 11 seasons.

If Leverkusen manages to defeat West Ham, the reigning champions of the European Conference League, they will then face an Italian opponent, either Milan or Roma. This victory would propel them a step closer to reaching the final scheduled for May 22 in Dublin. In this potential final, Coach Xabi Alonso could meet his former team, Liverpool, in a final showdown between him and German coach Jurgen Klopp’s English team.

The potential European final falls four days after the Bundesliga ends, where Leverkusen are expected to lift the shield after their match against Augsburg. Three days later, they will contest the German Cup final, where they are strong contenders, especially against Kaiserslautern from the second division.

The Spanish coach, is hesitant to attribute his team’s success to inheriting the “Bayern genes,” referring to Bayern Munich’s dominance in the Bundesliga over the past 11 seasons. This is despite Alonso’s own contributions to Bayern Munich’s three league titles as a player.

Alonso commented: “We have our own way. We played well and achieved many good, well-deserved results. “We were able to create a great team.” He added: “We are in a great position in the German Cup, in the Bundesliga, and we also want to do well in the European League.”

Alonso admitted that he never expected to win the league title so early. Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka summed up all the talk about the expected miracle for his team’s fans by saying: “If you are 16 points ahead of Bayern Munich, then you deserve to be German champions.” .
