Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen have been in terrific form since mid-April and look capable of collecting at least a point away to Borussia Dortmund.
In their last nine Bundesliga matches, Die Werkself have taken 23 points from a possible 27 and scored three or more goals in five of those seven victories.
Their manager Peter Bosz will now be determined to prove a point against his previous employers Dortmund, who sacked him after just six months in charge during the 2017-18 season following a winless run of eight games.
But Bosz has taken Leverkusen into the Champions League and they face a more straightforward group opener than Dortmund in the coming midweek, hosting Lokomotiv Moscow whereas BVB welcome Barcelona as the next visitors to the Westfalenstadion.
Dortmund had looked to be making an equally rapid start to last term, when they topped the Bundesliga table for most of the campaign, until they suffered a 3-1 defeat to newly-promoted Union Berlin just before the international break.
Although Jadon Sancho and Paco Alcacer continue to be on fire for the Black and Yellows, excellent form is also being shown by Leverkusen attackers Kai Havertz, Leon Bailey and Kevin Volland and they are fancied to cause plenty of problems for Lucien Favre’s side.
