Fairytale Leverkusen saved its unbeaten streak again in extra time

Lukas Hradecky’s Leverkusen rose again from the brink of the abyss and saved their unbeaten streak. Robert Andrich equalized against Stuttgart in the sixth minute of extra time.

Lukas Hradecky represented by Leverkusen is writing wild history in the German Bundesliga and the entire sport in general.

Leverkusen, who secured the German championship two weeks ago, rose from the brink of the abyss for the second week in a row. Now it was Stuttgart, who led 2–1 on the away field even after extra time had expired.

Leverkusen got another side free kick with 90+6 minutes on the clock. By Florian Wirtz the cross remained playable in front of the goal, from which Robert Andrich hit the ball into the goal to the astonishment of the players and spectators.

Astonishing because the exact same sequence of events was already seen last week. Then Josip Stanisic headed the equalizer into Dortmund’s net in the seventh minute of extra time from Wirtz’s corner kick.

Leverkusen is only three games away from a historic unbeaten season in the Bundesliga. In other competitions, it has not lost a single match in the entire season. The undefeated streak is now 46 matches long.

Bundesliga website according to Andrich’s goal was already the 17th overtime goal of the season for Leverkusen in all competitions. Hradecky played the whole match.

Among the wildest last-minute rises of Leverkusen can be found, for example, two overtime goals in the net of Azerbaijan’s Qarabag in the quarterfinals of the Europa League. In the Bundesliga, Leverkusen won 2–1 against Hoffenheim at the end of March after being down in the 88th minute.

The last time Leverkusen lost was in May of last year in the semifinals of the Europa League in an away match against AS Roma. Be that as it may, the same teams will meet in the same stadium at the same stage of the same competition next Thursday.

Leverkusen has a chance for a triple championship, as it will play on May 25 in the German Cup final against Kaiserslautern.
