Neverkusen or Leverkusen??

Written by on May 4, 2024

Are we on the verge of a historic end of footballing chapter in this 2023/2024 season of Europe’s top 5 leagues… England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France.

Like the Arsenal’s invincible team of exactly 20 years ago in England, this season could be yet another one to behold for one of the most unlikely teams you could ever think of, Neverkusen or as they now prefer to be called, Leverkusen. Bayer Leverkusen of Germany had the worst nightmare in their history when they lost the German cup final, the Bundesliga title and most agonisingly, the UEFA Champions League Final in 2002. The dream of a treble became a reality of NO title at all and so Leverkusen became Neverkusen and with that, they were being taunted for more than 2 decades until now that they can do what no other football club has done in the history of football.

Not the Arsenal Invincibles or the Alex Ferguson’s United or the Carlo Ancelotti’s Ac Milan or even the Pep Guardiola’s tiki taka Barcelona. Bayer Leverkusen are on the brink of playing the whole season without losing a single match in all competitions. They could do what the greatest team in Germany Bayern Munich have never done despite winning the “Meisterschale” for a record 11 times in a row and funny how a former player who played his last football at Bayern Munich could only come back as a coach and break the jinx.

Having already won the League title and scoring late minute equalizers and winners, Bayer Leverkusen have also won the first leg of the Europa League Semifinals away from home and they are definitely favourites to win the trophy and not to forget that they are also in the finals of the DFB pokal meaning, Leverkusen just has to avoid defeat in the remaining 5 games in the league and also win the Europa League and DFB pokal. If this happens, then they would have a treble in their hands with a proud record of not losing a single match in all competitions, really astounding as it sounds.

Victor Boniface, Grimaldo, Frimpong, Xhaka, Florian Wirtz, Patrick Schick, Jonathan Tah, Hradecky and of course their relatively inexperienced but dogged Coach Xabi Alonso would surely have that record in their sights. Just over a month left and we just might see it all unfold in our very eyes.
