The "Green-Whites" gained confidence and made it 3-2 only two minutes later as Yuya Osako poked home a flicked on pass out of very close range.
Just when ever Bremen thought they are gonna turn the tides, Leverkusen extended their lead without warning as Kai Havertz lobbed the ball over Pavlenka to make it 4-2 in the 67th minute.
Bremen were shocked, but Leverkusen held it going to sink the hosts with another two goals as Aleksandar Dragovic and Haverts rounded off of the 6-2 goal festival.
