Bayer Leverkusen complete unbeaten Bundesliga season, Bayern Munich finish third

INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL 

Bayer Leverkusen have become the first team in Germany since the Bundesliga was founded in 1963 to complete a whole season undefeated.

After a 2-1 win over Augsburg, Xabi Alonso’s treble-chasing side also stretched their European record unbeaten run across all competitions this season to 51 matches in a perfect dress rehearsal for Wednesday’s Europa League final against Atalanta.

Leverkusen, who won the title in April to end Bayern Munich’s 11-year run, are also the first in any of Europe’s top five leagues since Juventus in 2011-12 to go unbeaten in all competitions.

They could extend that even further if they beat Atalanta, then win the German Cup final.

Meanwhile local rivals Cologne were relegated after a 4-1 loss at Heidenheim while Union Berlin clinched survival with a 2-1 win over Freiburg.
