Victor Boniface scores as Bayer Leverkusen enter German Bundesliga history book

Super Eagles star Victor Boniface scored a goal as Bayer Leverkusen etched their names into Bundesliga history by becoming the first club to complete a season unbeaten and win the league. They achieved this remarkable feat by defeating Augsburg 2-1 in their final match of the season.

Boniface, who has been instrumental throughout the campaign, was named in the starting lineup by coach Xabi Alonso.

The Nigerian forward wasted no time making an impact, scoring the opening goal in the 12th minute. The goal was set up by Moroccan teammate Amine Adli, who capitalized on a mistake by Augsburg’s goalkeeper Tomas Koubek to provide a simple tap-in for Boniface.

Despite another chance for Boniface in the 16th minute, which was saved, Bayer Leverkusen maintained their dominance and doubled their lead in the 27th minute. Augsburg managed to pull one back through Mert Komur in the 62nd minute, but it was not enough to alter the outcome.

Boniface’s performance was notable, with the striker registering two goal attempts and 28 touches in his 62 minutes of play. His contributions throughout the season have been significant in helping Bayer Leverkusen secure the title.

Bayer Leverkusen’s incredible season saw them amass 28 wins and six draws, finishing the campaign without a single defeat. This unbeaten run has firmly placed them in the annals of Bundesliga history as the first “Invincibles” of German football.

The victory over Augsburg and the historic unbeaten season underline the successful tenure of Xabi Alonso as coach, who has guided Die Werkself to unprecedented heights in German football.
