Bayer Leverkusen staged a remarkable comeback from two goals down to secure a draw with the final kick of the game, extending their unbeaten streak to an impressive 46 matches.

Without former Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka, and coach Xabi Alonso opting to rest a couple of his standout players, Stuttgart threatened to end their fairytale streak.

Leverkusen stage fightback to maintain invincible run

Chris Fuhrich opened the scoring for the visitors, capitalising on a rebound and unleashing a powerful shot into the top corner, per the Bundesliga's official website.

Shortly after, Denis Undav doubled Stuttgart's lead, putting Leverkusen on the brink of defeat and jeopardizing their unbeaten record.

However, Xabi Alonso's side, which earned the' Never-losing' moniker due to its unbeaten run, refused to surrender its streak.

First, Moroccan midfielder, Amine Adli, ignited the comeback with a thunderous strike from the edge of the box, narrowing the deficit in the 62nd minute.

Leverkusen's hopes seemed dashed as stoppage time loomed, with Stuttgart defending resolutely.

But in the dying embers of the game, Robert Andrich found the back of the net with a dramatic strike, salvaging a point for Die Werkself, according to the BBC.

Andrich's late goal extended the newly crowned Bundesliga champions' unbeaten run to 46 games, maintaining their pursuit of invincibility.
