Bundesliga 2023/24 Season

Week 34 Review

Leverkusen Make History by Completing Invincible Season

Bayer Leverkusen achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first team to complete an unbeaten season in the Bundesliga. This remarkable feat was confirmed with a 2-1 victory over Augsburg on the final day of the 2023-24 campaign. Leverkusen had already secured their first-ever German title a few weeks prior but their invincible status adds an extraordinary chapter to their triumphant season. Coach Xavi Alonso said the biggest challenge facing the champions ahead of their final league match was complacency. The players heeded the warning as  Leverkusen started the match on fire as Victor Boniface opened the scoring in the 12th minute while Robert Andrich extended the lead with a stunning backheel goal midway through the first half. Although Mert Komur managed to pull one back for Augsburg with a superb curling shot in the 62nd minute, it wasn’t enough to change the outcome. Leverkusen concluded their historic campaign with 90 points, falling just one point short of the Bundesliga record set by Bayern Munich team in the 2012-13 season

Stuttgart Snatch Second on Dramatic Final Day

Stuttgart completed their fairytale season with a crushing 4-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, a result that catapulted them into a scarcely believable second spot. They started the day just two points behind outgoing champions Bayern Munich and had an outside chance of overhauling them if Bayern lost. Stuttgart played their part as they dominated their match from the outset. Two goals from their striker  Serhou Guirassy saw them lead 2-0 at halftime with two more second half goals sealing the win. The shock result came when Hoffenheim beat Bayern 4-2 to relegate the former champions into third place. It was not the first time this season that Bayern blew a two goal lead and lost a match. They will be glad the season is over as it ranks as one of their worst ever in recent memory. 

 

Dortmund End Season on a High

Borussia Dortmund ended their season on a high as they thrashed already relegated Darmstadt, 4-0. The hosts had ideal preparations for the Champions League final as they took the lead in the 30th. The second goal was scored by Marco Reus on an emotional night for the player, who played his last league match for Dortmund as he is leaving the club. The home side scored two goals in the second half for the victory. RB Leipzig drew their third match in a row but have secured Champions League football for next year. Eintracht Frankfurt and Hoffenheim clinched the Europa League and Conference League spots for next year with the latter beating Bayern to book their place in Europe. 

Darmstadt and FC Koln relegated 

Darmstadt ended their season with a 4-0 loss to Dortmund which saw them return to the lower league. FC Koln also lost to confirm their return to Bundesliga 2. Bochum will contest the playoff/relegation match as they lost 4-1 on the final day to Werder Bremen. Union Berlin secured their top flight status with a 2-1 win over Freiburg which left them equal with Bochum on 33 points but it was their superior goal difference that saw them safe. Mainz stretched their unbeaten run to nine matches with a 3-1 win over Wolfsburg to complete an amazing comeback from the relegation zone to a very creditable 13th position.
