With five games left, Bayer Leverkusen secured their first-ever German Bundesliga title with a 5-0 thumping of Werder Bremen, capped off by a pitch invasion on Sunday. Florian Wirtz scored a hat trick in the victory. “I don’t think it’s possible, or I can’t even realize it yet,” Wirtz said to broadcaster DAZN. “It’s indescribable.”
