German champions Bayer Leverkusen and coach Xabi Alonso‘s dream unbeaten run seems to be a never-ending fairytale so far with the club grabbing another late win against their UEFA Europa League opponents AS Roma which took them to the finals of the competition.

The win made sure that the record unbeaten run continues on the night, with the team now without a defeat in 49 games this season. Former Spanish player Xabi Alonso has turned his team into mentality monsters who are delivering results day in and day out for their side. Having won the German Bundesliga with games still left to play, the German outfit has shifted its focus to other competitions.

Can Leverkusen Go All The Way?

Leverkusen are still in contention for two other titles this season. They have now already booked two final dates, one in the DFB Pokal with FC Kaiserslautern and the other against Atalanta in the Europa League. The main challenge for them will be to complete the treble while also maintaining their unbeaten streak. If Xabi and his men can complete this feat, they will be the first team in history to achieve such an incredible achievement as well.

Having leveled Benfica’s long-standing record in European football history for the longest unbeaten streak, Leverkusen has now gone one better them and are now unbeaten in 49 games.

From Facing Relegation To Champions

The club has witnessed an impressive turnaround from last year, with the team placed second from bottom last year after 8 Bundesliga games. Xbi had taken his side to 6th that year which also helped them qualify for the Europa League. It was this year that the Spaniard turned around the fortunes of the club who are on their way to a potential invincible treble.
