Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer LeverkusenGerman Bundesliga, KO: 14:30 Feb 6, 2022, Signal Iduna Park
Borussia Dortmund will be looking to maintain the pressure on leaders Bayern Munich as they host Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga. Saturday's clash is likely to be a thrilling contest but Dortmund’s solid home form should give them the edge over the visitors.
Borussia Dortmund are pushing Bayern Munich all the way in the title race and sit second on the table, six points behind the champions. They head into Sunday’s clash with four wins from their last five Bundesliga matches, including a 3-2 victory over Hoffenheim in their previous fixture.
Home form has been pivotal for Borussia Dortmund, who have suffered just one defeat at the Signal Iduna Park this season. Marco Rose’s men have won nine of their last 10 home matches and eased past Freiburg 5-1 in their previous fixture in front of their fans.
The goals have also flowed freely for Borussia Dortmund, who are among the leading scorers in the Bundesliga this season. Led by the impressive Erling Haaland, they have score three or more goals in their last three home Bundesliga matches.
Bayer Leverkusen have been on the rise in recent weeks and are now up to third on the table. They are still some way off leaders Bayern Munich but can move to within five points of second placed Dortmund with a win on Sunday.
Gerard Seoane’s men travel to the Signal Iduna Park off the back of two straight Bundesliga wins. They claimed a 5-1 victory over Augsburg in their previous fixture with Moussa Diaby netting a hat-trick.
While Bayer Leverkusen have shown some good form lately, their record on the road remains unconvincing. They have suffered three defeats in their last four away matches across all competitions.
