Boniface and Tella secure Bayer 04 Leverkusen's maiden Bundesliga triumph

Posted : 15 April 2024

Victor Boniface, a striker for the Super Eagles, found the back of the net as Bayer 04 Leverkusen secured a historic first Bundesliga title with a dominant 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen at the Bay Arena.

Under the guidance of head coach Xabi Alonso, Boniface and Nathan Tella earned spots in Leverkusen's starting lineup, marking a significant return for Boniface, who had been sidelined since December due to an adductor injury.

Leverkusen broke the deadlock in the 25th minute when Boniface calmly converted a penalty after Jonas Hofmann was fouled in the box by Julian Malatini, marking his 11th league goal of the season.

The home team extended their lead in the 60th minute, with Boniface initiating a counterattack and assisting Granit Xhaka, whose stunning left-footed strike from outside the box found the top-left corner, igniting celebrations among the fans.

Florian Wirtz, entering the second half, seized the moment to secure his first career hat-trick, showcasing his skill with a powerful strike from distance in the 65th minute, further solidifying Leverkusen's lead.

Wirtz added a fourth goal after receiving a well-placed through-ball from Exequiel Palacios, capitalizing on space created by the Werder defenders' advance, while the ecstatic fans briefly stormed the pitch before players urged them to return to their seats to avoid penalties.

In the game's final minute, Wirtz completed the rout with a composed finish, connecting with Alejandro Grimaldo's precise cross. Boniface and Tella joined the ranks of Nigerian players who have lifted the Meisterschale, including Sunday Oliseh and Pascal Ojigwe, marking a historic achievement for Leverkusen.
