The game was played at the BayArena in Germany on April 12, 2024, and Leverkusen beat West Ham 2:0, leaving the aggregate results to 2-0. Therefore, West Ham United would have to score at least one goal more than Leverkusen would score in the second leg to secure their spot in the finals.

After Boniface struck the ball that fell at the back of the net, he ran to the billboard and sat down comfortably. His teammates followed him to join in the celebration.
