Europa League: Boniface, Tella On Path Of History With Leverkusen

Barring the last-minute change, Nigerian footballers, Victor Boniface and Nathan Tella are on the verge of history with the newly crowned Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen.

Leverkusen will face AS Roma in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final tie at the BayArena on Thursday, May 9.

Xabi Alonso’s side extended their unbeaten run to 48 games across all competitions following last Sunday’s 5-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.


The victory saw Die Werkself equal Benfica’s longstanding European record set between December 1963 and February 1965.

A win against AS Roma will see them set a new record for the longest unbeaten streak by a European club.

Leverkusen are looking to win the Europa League crown for the second time in history after their success in the 1987/88 season.
