Nigeria forward Victor Boniface scored and provided an assist as Bayer Leverkusen beat Werder Bremen 5-0 to land their first-ever Bundesliga title.
Boniface’s goal-scoring prowess has proven invaluable to Leverkusen as they clinched a historic Bundesliga title.

In January, Boniface suffered a muscle tendon injury in the right adductor area during Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) pre-tournament camping in Dubai.
However, he continued to be the revelation in his rookie season as he scooped several Rookie of the Month and Player of the Month awards in the Bundesliga.

Unbeaten in all competitions this season, Leverkusen remain on course for a remarkable treble in Boniface’s first full season in charge, with the German Cup and Europa League still in their sights.
