Leverkusen score six in first 36 minutes to thrash top-four rivals

Bayer Leverkusen hit six goals in the first 36 minutes to thrash Bundesliga top-four rivals Eintracht Frankfurt and boost their Champions League hopes.

Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt put Leverkusen 2-0 ahead inside 13 minutes, before Filip Kostic pulled one back.

Lucas Alario scored twice for Leverkusen, one either side of team-mate Charles Aranguiz’s strike.

Peter Bosz’ side had a sixth before half-time as Martin Hinteregger headed into his own goal.

The result sees fifth-placed Leverkusen move level on points with Frankfurt, in fourth, ahead of the final two games of the season.
