Nathan Tella bagged an assist as Bayer Leverkusen thrashed Bayern Munich 3-0 in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
The win against Bayern means Leverkusen remained unbeaten for the 31st competitive match in a row in all competitions (27 wins and four draws).
Leverkusen are just one game short of the record for a Bundesliga team.
Bayern hold the record as they remained undefeated in 32 consecutive competitive matches under Hansi Flick from 2019 to 2020.
In Saturday’s fixture, Tella provided the assist for Leverkusen’s second goal scored by Alex Grimaldo in the 50th minute.
Tella was then replaced in the 65th minute for Jeremie Frimpong.
Leverkusen, on 55 points, extend their lead over second placed Bayern to five points after 21 league games played this season.
It was Tella’s 12th league appearance with four goals for Xabi Alonso’s side.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles striker Victor Boniface is still out injured.
