Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Both Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen will be hoping to rebound from recent losses when they take on each other in the most interesting clash of the Matchday at Signal-Iduna-Park. BVB disappointed by failing to create in the final third in a 2-0 loss to bitter rival Schalke 04 in last weekend’s Ruhr derby.
Their rivals were successful at the weekend, but they ruined the good momentum on Tuesday evening conceding as many as six goals in a demolishing defeat to Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal semifinal. Their manager Heiko Herrlich will face hard times lifting up the spirits after such a tough defeat.
The clash at Signal-Iduna Park has a massive importance for both teams in the battle for the Champions League football next term. BVB and Die Werkself are currently lock on points, sharing the third place in the league ladder and they are in a good position regarding the top-four finish being four points above RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim.

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
Both teams proved out to be quite vulnerable at the back in recent weeks. With such firepower on display in the final third, we just can’t see any of the sides keeping a clean sheet here. BTTS would be the best of the betting options and it can be backed at the odds of 1.50.
Kevin Volland shoed an impressive form in recent league ties for Leverkusen. He bagged four goals in last two Bundesliga outings, including a hat-trick in the 4-1 drubbing of Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. The German forward is definitely worth backing as the anytime goalscorer at the odds of 3.00 here.
