Bayer Leverkusen Having Their Best Season Ever? 10 Facts About the Leverkusen Campaign

  1. 41 — the number of games in Bayer's unbeaten streak across all competitions. This is the third-best result in the history of the top-5 leagues, and Bayer is just three games away from taking the top spot.

  2. Leverkusen scored 116 goals across all competitions. Notably, the team's top scorer is Viktor Boniface (16 goals), who played only 50 minutes in 2024.

  3. When Bayer takes the lead, they always win. This season, Leverkusen secured 3 points in every match where they were ahead.

  4. Florian Wirtz is Bayer's most prolific player. In 39 matches, the 20-year-old German has achieved an impressive 14 goals and 18 assists.

  5. Since January, Xavi Alonso's team has snatched victory four times after the 90th minute. Patrick Schick is the hero of these late goals: his last five goals brought points to Bayer, four of them coming in added time.

  6. Left-back Alex Grimaldo is the top assist provider in the top-5 leagues. He has assisted 11 goals in the league and a total of 11 assists and 15 goals across all competitions. Jeremy Frimpong has contributed with 12 assists and 10 goals on the other flank.

  7. Alonso's proteges have amassed 76 points in 28 rounds. To match Bayern's Bundesliga record (91 points) of the 2012/2013 season, they need to win 5 out of the remaining 6 matches.

  8. Bayer is second in the top five leagues in terms of goals conceded. Only Inter (15 goals) has conceded fewer than Leverkusen (19 goals) in the major leagues.

  10. Leverkusen's goal difference across all competitions is nearly 1.5 times greater than Bayern's points in the league. Alonso's boys have a solid +85 goal difference, while Bayern have accumulated only 60 points in the Bundesliga.
