Bayer Leverkusen end Bochum’s winning streak with 2-0 defeat

Adam Hlozek

Bayer Leverkusen’s recent run of four straight league wins had seen them climb the table rapidly and they showed no signs of slowing down when they were awarded a penalty eight minutes into the game.

The penalty was awarded after Moussa Diaby was fouled in the box by Keven Schlotterbeck, and Edmond Tapsoba was the one to step up to take the penalty, rifling his spot kick into the roof of the net.

Florian Wirtz was making his first start since he tore his ACL in March and the Germany international almost marked the occasion with a goal shortly after the break when he was denied by Manuel Riemann.

However, the youngster did play a part in his side’s second goal of the game, as he chased down a loose ball before playing it to the near post where Adam Hložek was on hand to poke the ball through the legs of the goalkeeper.

Bochum desperately fought to get back into the game late on but were unable to make a breakthrough, as Leverkusen successfully defended their two-goal lead without too much difficulty, allowing them to extend their winning run to five games and close the gap with the top-six to seven points.

Bochum still sits in 16th, but after their recent win streak, their fight for survival is looking much more likely, with them being level on points with 15th-placed Stuttgart.
