Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen

, KO: 15:30 Apr 21, 2024, Signal Iduna Park
Bayer Leverkusen

After being confirmed Bundesliga champions, Bayer Leverkusen begin their victory lap with a trip to Borussia Dortmund on Sunday. Both teams have shown plenty of attacking verve in recent weeks and could be set to serve up an open contest.

Borussia Dortmund will head into Sunday’s clash on a high after an impressive comeback against Atletico Madrid to reach the Champions League semi-final. Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, they ran out 4-2 winners in the second fixture to secure a place in the last four.

Domestically, Borussia Dortmund are still in the hunt for a return to the Champions League next season. Edin Terzic’s men are currently fifth on the table, level on points with fourth placed RB Leipzig.

Borussia Dortmund have been in good form in the Bundesliga, winning five of their last six matches, including a 2-1 win at Borussia Monchengladbach last time out. However, they are often unconvincing at the back, keeping just two clean sheets in their last 10 home matches across all competitions.

Bayer Leverkusen were confirmed Bundesliga champions last weekend after an impressive 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen. Florian Wirtz netted a hat-trick while Victor Boniface and Granit Xhaka were also on target.

Xabi Alonso’s men are still unbeaten across all competitions this season and well on course for a historic treble. They are into the semi-final of the Europa League after playing out a 1-1 draw at West Ham on Thursday for a 3-1 aggregate win.

While still unbeaten, Bayer Leverkusen have not been as dominant on their recent travels, with three wins and two draws from their last five away matches. They have also been unconvincing at the back on the road, with just one clean sheet in the last four fixtures in that run.
