Bayer Leverkusen Equals Bundesliga’s Unbeaten Record Under Xabi Alonso’s Leadership

In an electrifying Matchday 22 in the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen, under the guidance of Xabi Alonso, has matched the all-time unbeaten record with a 2-1 victory over Heidenheim. This win catapults Leverkusen to a temporary eight-point lead at the summit, while Borussia Dortmund drops points for the second consecutive away game, drawing 1-1 with Wolfsburg.

Leverkusen’s Historic Streak

Leverkusen’s triumph over Heidenheim wasn’t just another win; it was a record-equaling moment, matching Bayern Munich’s historic unbeaten streak with 32 games without loss from the season’s start. The clash against the newly promoted side proved challenging, but Leverkusen showed their class and resilience, securing the win with goals from Amin Adli and Florian Wirtz, despite a late consolation from Tim Kleindienst.

Dortmund’s Stumble

On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund saw their title hopes take another hit with a 1-1 draw against Wolfsburg. Despite an early lead, Dortmund couldn’t hold on, with Wolfsburg fighting back to share the spoils. The match was marked by interruptions due to fan protests against proposed changes to Bundesliga broadcasting rights, adding another layer of drama to the encounter.

RB Leipzig’s Redemption

In another notable match, RB Leipzig bounced back from their Champions League disappointment against Manchester City, securing a 2-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach. This victory narrows the gap to Dortmund, heating up the race for the top four spots.
