Bayer Leverkusen Run: The Five Longest Unbeaten Runs Of All-time In Europe’s Top Four Leagues

Rocking up an unbeaten streak in top-flight football is among the most difficult things a club can do. A trait of a small number of teams is the fortitude to tolerate defeat.

As the only club in Premier League history to have completed an entire season without suffering a single loss, Arsenal’s unbeaten streak is among the most well-known illustrations of a stretch without a defeat.

Consequently, the inquiry arises as to whether there are any additional unbeaten streaks in the twenty-first century.

What was the result? Arsenal finished a remarkable 32nd, as the IFFHS had previously compiled a list of the longest unbeaten streaks from national leagues worldwide since the turn of the 21st century.

On Bundesliga Matchday 23, Leverkusen defeated Mainz 2-1 to extend their unbeaten streak to 33 games. Which have continued till this day with 31 League games unbeaten run.

In doing so, the Bundesliga leaders surpassed the record held by Hansi Flick’s Bayern Munich squad of 2020 and 2021 for the most incredible unbeaten streak by a German side across all competitions.

Furthermore, it is noteworthy that Die Werkself accomplished this goal during a single campaign.

So far this season, Alonso’s squad has won a derby against Cologne, drawn a dramatic late match in their away leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 16, defeated Wolfsburg 2-0, staged an even more dramatic comeback to win at home against Qarabağ, and finally defeated Freiburg 3-2 on Matchday 26.

Continuing their streak of only dropping points in four of their twenty-seven league games this season, they rallied from a goal down in the 88th minute to steal a home win against Hoffenheim.

With this victory, they moved thirteen points clear of defending champions Bayern in their relentless quest for their first Bundesliga championship.

Plus, they have set new club records for points (73), and goals (68) scored so far in the 2023–24 league season, and they are the only side in any of the top five leagues in Europe according to the UEFA coefficient that has not lost yet.

Below are some of the most famous unbeaten runs in Europe’s top five leagues

AC Milan | 58 matches | 1991-93

AC Milan | 58 matches | 1991-93

Upon arriving at San Siro in June 1991, Fabio Capello wasted little time transforming AC Milan into a championship contender.

In 1991–1992, Milan was unbeaten in Serie A. From May 19, 1991, to March 21, 1993, the Rossoneri embarked on an undefeated record of 58 games under his supervision, thus extending their domination. Faustino Asprilla scored the only goal in a 0-1 loss to Parma, ending their record.

Bayern Munich | 53 matches | 2012-13

Since the Bundesliga’s creation in 1963, Bayern Munich has been the most dominating side in Germany’s top-tier competition.

Regarding Bundesliga records, the Bavarians’ 53-game winning streak from 2012–2014 is the longest.

Under manager Jupp Heynckes’s tutelage, Bayern completed a hat trick in 2012–13, including a flawless season in the Bundesliga (91 points).

Later in 2013, Bayern’s winning run in the Bundesliga reached 53 matches, thanks to newly-appointed manager Pep Guardiola. The 1-0 defeat to Augsburg snapped the winning run.

Arsenal | 49 matches | 2003-04

Arsenal | 49 matches | 2003-04

In 2003–04, Arsenal became the first club in Premier League history to go the entire season without a loss, cementing their place in history books.

Under the guidance of their legendary manager, Arsene Wenger, the Gunners won the Premier League that season with a record of 26 victories and 12 draws.

Arsenal earned the nickname”The Invincibles” when they went 49 games without a loss in the English Premier League.

On October 24, 2004, they were defeated 2-0 by Manchester United, ending their undefeated streak.

Juventus | 49 games | 2011-12

Juventus | 49 games | 2011-12

Juventus were crowned champions in 2012 following a perfect season, only six years after being relegated to Serie B due to the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal.

After two consecutive seventh-place finishes and a 2010 Europa League elimination at the hands of Fulham, the Bianconeri pulled off an incredible comeback.

The remarkable results from Juventus, which have transformed the Italian powerhouse into a championship-calibre machine, can be attributed mainly to Antonio Conte.

They won 23 and tied 15 of their 38 Serie A matches that season, largely thanks to Andrea Pirlo’s and Arturo Vidal’s acquisitions.

They were undefeated in all their home games until they lost the Coppa Italia final against Napoli.

Juventus were perfect in the 2012–13 season until a 3–1 home loss to Inter in November.

Liverpool | 44 games | 2019-20

One month, one year, and twenty-seven days. That is the second-longest run in English football history, and Liverpool set it in the Premier League.

The Reds went on a lengthy unbeaten streak following a January 2019 loss to Manchester City; they were defeated at Watford in February 2020.

Jurgen Klopp’s squad set a new record for the most fantastic start to a season in one of Europe’s top five divisions in 2019/20, winning 26 games and drawing one in the first 27 games.
