Leverkusen have won the league title after 29 matches; winning 25, drawing only 4, and losing none.

They are into the DFB-Pokal final, where they are unbeaten and are currently unbeaten in the UEFA Europa League with just a quarterfinal match to reach the semifinal at the expense of West Ham, whom they thrashed 2-0 in the first leg. Boniface also scored in that match as well, after being introduced from the bench.

The DFB-Pokal final will be against FCT on 24th May 2024 while the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals will be played on Thursday, 18th April 2024.
