The Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayer Leverkusen match will be played on Saturday, at the Signal Iduna park, Dortmund. Borussia Dortmund is currently 4th on the table with 51 points, while Bayer Leverkusen is 3rd on the table with 51 points at the moment. The winner of this game will probably secure the place in the top four.


  • Borussia Dortmund won only three out of their last ten games in all competitions. In the last three weeks, they were easily defeated in derby games against Bayern Munich and Schalke.
  • Bayer Leverkusen lost only one out of their last four games. In midweek, they suffered a heavy 6:2 defeat against Bayern Munich at home in German Cup.


In their previous ten meetings, Borussia Dortmund won five games, Bayer Leverkusen won three matches, while two games ended in a draw. The hosts won in three out of the last four games.


Borussia Dortmund had another disappointing season. They got eliminated from Europa League by the hands of Salzburg, and they failed to fight for the title in Bundesliga. In addition, Bayern Munich literally obliterated them in a derby match three weeks ago. Now they have to defend the place in the top four, since Leipzig is only four points away. If they lose, that might cost them Champions League spot.

Bayer Leverkusen returned to the top of the league, after several seasons. They in the same situation as Borussia - if they lose the upcoming game, they might lose the place in the top four. However, they have easier schedule, so they might come on top in the end.
