Boniface scores as Leverkusen make history with unbeaten Bundesliga season

Victor Boniface scored the opening goal as Bayer Leverkusen defeated Augsburg 2-1 in their final match of the 2023/24 Germany’s Bundesliga season at the BayArena on Saturday.

The win ensured Leverkusen, already crowned Bundesliga champions, finished the season without a league defeat.

The unbeaten run to the league title includes 28 wins and six draws in the 34-match league.

It was the first time a team finished the season unbeaten in the Bundesliga, etching Boniface and his teammates’ names into the history books.

Boniface, who won the Bundesliga Rookie of the Year award earlier in the week, started the party atmosphere when he slotted home an Amaine Chadli pass inside the area in the 12th minute before Robert Andrich doubled the lead before the half-hour mark.

Mert Komur’s goal on 62 minutes proved only a consolation for Augsburg as Leverkusen sealed victory in front of their passionate fans.

The Levekusen side is led by Xabi Alonso, who is only into his second year but first full season as coach of a senior team.
