Bayer Leverkusen Defeat Roma to Continue Undefeated



May 3rd, 2024

Fresh off their Bundesliga title win, Bayer Leverkusen showed no signs of slowing down, conquering the Stadio Olimpico as they defeat Roma 2-0 in the Europa League semi-final first leg. This win extends their remarkable unbeaten streak to a staggering 47 matches across all competitions, the longest current run in Europe's top five leagues.

Leverkusen's relentless pursuit of victory silenced the passionate Roma crowd. A defensive lapse from Roma gifted the German side a golden opportunity in the 27th minute. Florian Wirtz capitalized on the breakaway, calmly slotting the ball past Rui Patricio to put Leverkusen ahead.

Roma threatened an equalizer throughout the match, but Leverkusen's resolute defense held firm. The visitors won after midfielder Robert Andrich scored a long-range goal in the 73rd minute as Roma appeared to be gaining momentum.

This result marks a sweet revenge for Leverkusen, who were defeated by Roma at the same stage of the competition last season.

"We take things game by game and we are not thinking about being unbeaten," said Leverkusen midfielder Amine Adli. "We are not thinking about making history or things like that — that's why we are playing like this and the team is strong, We just want to enjoy ourselves."
