Boniface ends season with Double as Bayer Leverkusen win DFB Pokal

Super Eagles striker, Victor Boniface, has won a domestic Double with Bayer Leverkusen this season.

This follows their 1-0 win over Kaiserlateurn in the DFB Pokal final on Saturday.

Xabi Alonso’s men earlier this week lost 3-0 to Atalanta in the Europa League final.

That ended Leverkusen’s record 51-game unbeaten run across all competitions. It was their only loss in 53 games this season.

This was Leverkusen’s second German Cup win after their maiden victory back in 1993.

“In the end, to win like that meant we showed spirit, we fought for the fans for the club,” Alonso said. “It is huge success to win the double. We will remember this in the future.”

At Berlin’s Olympiastadion, which will host the Euro 2024 final in July, Leverkusen took the lead with Granit Xhaka’s 20-metre missile in the 16th minute.
