The two goals increased his total number of goals for the club to five in four games. He has also provided two assists.
Recall that Boniface scored his first set of Bundesliga brace in a Rhine derby at Borussia Park on matchday 2, as he helped his new team beat Monchengladbach 3-0.
With the help of the 22-year-old Nigerian striker, Bayer Leverkusen have kept their perfect record after the third league game and moved to the top of the German Bundesliga table.
The German tactician said, “Victor is not merely a proficient striker; he is a complete player.
“And you can see that he gets along very well with his teammates, both on and off the pitch.”
While the fast-rising Nigerian striker added, “We are thrilled with the win. Our synergy on the field is excellent, and if we maintain this level, we'll continue to enjoy success together.”
Ahead of the game, Boniface is expected to join the Super Eagles camp this week for the first time in his career for the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against São Tomé and Príncipe at 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 10.
