Bayer Leverkusen stuns Qarabag with Patrik Schick's late heroics in Europa League thriller

Posted : 15 March 2024

Bayer Leverkusen, led by a sensational performance from Patrik Schick, clinched an extraordinary 3-2 victory over Qarabag in the Europa League, courtesy of two stunning goals in second-half stoppage time. This triumph not only maintained Leverkusen's unbeaten record for the season, extending it to an impressive 37 matches but also secured their spot in the Europa League quarterfinals, with a 5-4 aggregate win.


Facing a daunting 2-0 deficit for the second consecutive week against Qarabag, Leverkusen staged a remarkable comeback, netting three crucial goals, including Schick's late heroics, to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and seal the tie on aggregate. The Czech striker had previously salvaged a draw for his team in the first leg with a late goal, showcasing his invaluable contribution to Leverkusen's unbeaten run in the 2023-24 campaign under the guidance of manager Xabi Alonso.


Leverkusen's remarkable form wasn't confined to their European exploits; they continued their dominance in the Bundesliga, defeating Freiburg 2-0 over the weekend to extend their streak to 36 matches before their thrilling comeback against Qarabag. Currently leading the Bundesliga table with a comfortable 10-point cushion over perennial contenders Bayern Munich, Leverkusen have also progressed to the semifinals of the DFB Pokal, setting the stage for a potentially historic season under Alonso's leadership.


With 32 wins already in the season, Leverkusen are on the brink of matching their club's record for most victories in a single campaign. Moreover, they have etched their name in the annals of German football history by surpassing Bayern Munich's previous record for the longest unbeaten streak, demonstrating their formidable prowess on the European stage. As they eagerly await the Europa League draw, Leverkusen stand alongside the likes of Liverpool, West Ham United, AC Milan, and others in the last eight, poised to continue their remarkable journey in pursuit of continental glory.
