Bayer 04 Leverkusen have taken an impressive step out of the crisis. The Werkself beat Union Berlin 5-0 (!) in front of their home crowd on Sunday.
After Leverkusen and Union were still 0-0 at half-time, the Werkself turned up the heat after the break. Robert Andrich struck moments after the restart, which Moussa Diaby followed up with a brace. Adam Hlozek and Mitchell Bakker boosted the result even further. The Werkself are finally on cloud nine again for the moment. The reality still looks modest with 14th place after 13 matchdays, but such a win against a top team can definitely act as the famous knocked over buck.
