Bayer Leverkusen extends Bundesliga lead with convincing victory over 10-man Cologne

Posted : 03 March 2024

Bayer Leverkusen surged ahead by a commanding 10 points at the summit of the Bundesliga table after securing a decisive victory over 10-man Cologne. Following defending champions Bayern Munich's 2-2 draw with Freiburg, Xabi Alonso's squad had a prime opportunity to widen the gap at the top. The task became more favorable when Cologne's Jan Thielmann received a straight red card for a foul on Granit Xhaka, leaving the hosts with a numerical disadvantage.


Taking advantage of the situation, Jeremie Frimpong broke the deadlock, putting Leverkusen ahead, and Alex Grimaldo extended their lead with a well-placed low strike in the second half. This victory adds to Bayer Leverkusen's remarkable streak, as they have now gone 34 games undefeated in all competitions this season. With 64 points to their name, they firmly hold the top spot in the Bundesliga, while Bayern Munich trails behind in second place with 54 points.


The win not only solidifies Bayer Leverkusen's dominance in the league but also puts additional pressure on Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga title. The red card for Cologne's Thielmann proved to be a turning point in the match, allowing Leverkusen to capitalize on their numerical advantage and maintain their impressive undefeated run.
