Bundesliga Preview 

One of the standout teams in Europe this season will be back in action on Sunday, as Bayer Leverkusen bid to continue their unbeaten campaign in the Bundesliga. It will be fascinating to see how the recently crowned champions approach this showdown after winning their first German top-flight title last weekend, and they still have challenges to overcome in the DFB Pokal and Europa League. 

However, it’s hard to overlook how dominant Leverkusen have been in the competition this term after winning 25 of their 29 matches, and dropping to just four draws. Leverkusen have scored a stunning 74 goals this term, while they boast the best defensive record after allowing just 19. Xabi Alonso’s side got their hands on the top-flight title last weekend after securing a dominant 5-0 home success against Werder Bremen. Florian Wirtz made a positive impression from the bench after netting a stunning 22-minute hat-trick.

Borussia Dortmund will still have a big challenge to overcome in the final weeks of the season, as they are far from assured of a place in next season’s Champions League. However, they could yet earn qualification to the tournament by winning the competition this term after reaching the final four following their victory over Atletico Madrid in midweek. 

Dortmund come into this round in solid recent form after winning four of their last five domestic matches. The German side were professional in their previous outing in the competition after securing a 2-1 success on the road against Borussia Monchengladbach. Both goals in that success were netted inside the opening half an hour by Marcel Sabitzer. 

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Head to Head 

The previous encounter between these sides this term ended in a 1-1 draw in December. That result means that Dortmund are now unbeaten in their last three meetings with Leverkusen, landing two victories over that period. 

Leverkusen’s only win in their last six matches with Dortmund was recorded at Signal Iduna Park in February 2022. But, that remains Leverkusen’s only away victory against Dortmund since August 2014. 

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News 

Amine Adli will be missing for Leverkusen this weekend after picking up an accumulation of yellow cards. Meanwhile, Adam Hiozek is also absent for the German champions on Sunday after picking up an ankle injury, which will keep him out until the start of May. 

Karim Adeyemi will be missing for Dortmund this weekend after being sent off against Gladbach last time out. Donyell Malen remains sidelined with a knee injury, while Sebastien Haller, Ramy Bensebaini, and Samu Bamba are unlikely to play again in the 2023-24 season. 

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Trends 

Matches between these sides have been low-scoring affairs in recent years, with none of the last three seeing more than 2.5 goals being scored. However, historic trends show that over 2.5 goals have been scored in nine of the last 12 clashes between the rivals. 

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction 

Leverkusen’s form this season is extremely challenging to overlook, but Dortmund have boasted a strong record against their rivals across recent seasons. The fact that both would have been in midweek European action shouldn’t be overlooked, meaning that a draw could be an outcome that suits both Dortmund and Leverkusen.
