    Bayer Leverkusen are unbeaten in their last 28 Bundesliga matches. Will our score prediction back Die Werkself to stay unbeaten on Sunday in a 29th straight fixture?

    Xabi Alonso continues to do wonders with Leverkusen. On Sunday, the Spaniard could lead Leverkusen to their first-ever Bundesliga title, with a win over Werder Bremen. The team can wrap up the title with a victory.

    Werder Bremen will aim to spoil the party at the BayArena. However, it will take a Herculean effort from Bremen to stop Leverkusen. Bremen are on a poor run of form, with six straight matches ending without a victory.

    The Green and White only took two points from their last six matches in the division. They were outscored 10-5 across their last six matches.

    Leverkusen, on the other hand, are top of the current Bundesliga form table. They took 18 points from the last six matches, scoring 12 goals and conceding four times.

    Die Werkself continue to have the league’s best defence, with just 19 goals allowed in 28 games. Leverkusen starve their opponents of the ball and lead the league in possession, with 60.4% per game.

    They are second in the league in terms of shots per game, with an average of 18.4 shots per match. Remarkably, Leverkusen are on the verge of the title without a striker scoring more than 10 goals.

    Victor Boniface leads the team in scoring stats with 10 goals exactly. He has tallied just 14% of the team’s goals. A long injury layoff prevented Boniface from playing through the winter, however.

    He has now returned and scored on Thursday night against West Ham in the Europa League quarterfinal first leg. Leverkusen won that fixture at home 2-0.

    Bremen failed to win any of their last three road matches. However, Bremen achieved 1-1 draws in each of their last two matches played at the BayArena.

    But can they get another draw versus Leverkusen away? It is doubtful based on the teams’ match earlier this season in Bremen.

    Leverkusen eased to a 3-0 win Jeremie Frimpong and Alex Grimaldo scored on either side of halftime. Bremen’s Olivier Deman scored an on goal as well.

    Our AI-powered score prediction believes Bayer Leverkusen will clinch the Bundesliga title on Sunday, with a 2-1 win at home against Werder Bremen. Alonso will bring the first-ever Bundesliga title to Leverkusen.
