    German champions Bayer Leverkusen tied the 59-year-old record of Portuguese club Benfica when they thrashed Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1 on Sunday, extending their unbeaten run to 48 games in all competitions.

    Leverkusen, the guests in a German Bundesliga match played in Frankfurt, scored goals through Granit Xhaka, Patrik Schick, Exequiel Palacios, Jeremie Frimpong, and Victor Boniface.

    The home team’s lone goal came from Hugo Ekitike.

    After winning their first-ever German championship, Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen team is now unbeaten in 48 games across all competitions, matching Benfica’s record set between December 1963 and February 1965.

    Leverkusen’s next game is a UEFA Europa League semifinal on Thursday against Roma.

    May 2, in Italy, saw the German club win 2-0 in the first leg.
