In summary, while the 2000/01 season didn't bring any trophies to the club, Bayer Leverkusen continued to solidify their status as a competitive force in German football, with a clear indication of the successes and heartbreaks that were soon to follow.
Bundesliga: Bayer Leverkusen had a strong domestic campaign. They were among the title contenders, ultimately finishing in 4th place. This position was enough to secure qualification for the following season's UEFA Champions League, which was significant because it set the stage for their famous 2001-2002 Champions League run where they reached the final.
UEFA Champions League: In the 2000/01 UEFA Champions League, Leverkusen failed to advance beyond the second group stage. They were in a challenging group, which underscored the stiff competition of the tournament. However, their performance was promising and showcased the potential that would take full effect in the next season.
DFB-Pokal: Leverkusen's journey in the DFB-Pokal, the major domestic cup competition in Germany, saw them reaching the quarter-finals but not progressing further.
Key Players: The team had several standout players during this season. Michael Ballack was emerging as one of Germany's top talents and would go on to become one of the most significant figures in German football. Other notable players included Brazilian defender Lúcio and forward Oliver Neuville. The squad had a good mix of experienced players and young talents who were making their mark.
Management: The team was managed by Christoph Daum until October 2000, after which he was replaced by Berti Vogts. Vogts, a former German national team coach, took over mid-season but didn't manage to capture any trophies. The coaching change was part of a turbulent period for the club.
General Context: Bayer Leverkusen, often referred to as 'Neverkusen' due to their reputation of being runners-up, was building a strong team that was on the brink of making a significant impact both domestically and in Europe. The 2000/01 season's solid performances in the Bundesliga and Champions League set the groundwork for their memorable 'treble' runner-up feat in the following season, where they finished second in the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and UEFA Champions League.
