Bayer Leverkusen has reached a new milestone in European football history by surpassing Juventus to become the club with the longest unbeaten streak in Europe’s top 5 leagues since 2001 across all competitions.

This remarkable feat was achieved when the Black and Reds went away to secure a draw with West Ham at the London Stadium in the Quarter-finals of the Uefa Europa League.

A goal from Jeremie Frimpong in the dying embers of the game gave the Black and Reds an equalizer, resulting in the game ending in a 1-1 stalemate.

The result  saw Xabi Alonso’s men progress to the next stage of the competition as they beat West Ham in the first leg by 2 goals to nil at the Bay Arena.

Bayer Leverkusen are now unbeaten in 44 games and will be hoping to extend their streak under the tactical gem, Xabi Alonso.

Initial record holders, Juventus, went unbeaten for 43 games during the 2011/12 season under the then coach Antonio Conte, who played a significant role in Juventus’s success during that period, leading the team to the Serie A title without suffering a single defeat.

Joint-third on the list are Inter Milan and Real Madrid, who were unbeaten for 40 games in 2004/05 and 2016/17 seasons, respectively.
