Neither Thomas Tuchel nor Roger Schmidt can be happy with the campaigns they have had so far in the season.

Borussia Dortmund are miles away from the battle for the top of the Bundesliga standings, while the visitors currently hold 8th position. The Champions League anthem won’t be present at BayArena in the next season per the current situation.

Borussia Dortmund

BVB did improve their performances significantly over the last couple of weeks since they managed to pick back-to-back wins betting three goals against Wolfsburg and Freiburg each.

The team did not concede a single goal on the other side of the pitch and we can say that the hosts will come in the game in high spirits.

Bayer Leverkusen

The story is completely different with the visitors who have two losses on the bounce. The defensive line revealed plenty of holes to be exploited by top quality strikers such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

B04 allowed as many as six goals in consecutive home defeats to Atletico Madrid and Mainz 05.

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head to head

The head to head tie is levelled at 27 wins each. Bayer came out victorious from the last meeting at the start of October last year when they took a 2-0 win at BayArena.

Interestingly, none of the previous five encounters between the two teams has seen both sides on the scoresheet.

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction

Tuchel’s men have been enjoying a much better form and we can easily see them maintaining the impressive form in the final third against more than vulnerable defensive line of Leverkusen’s.

Moreover, BVB to win to nil is paid at 15/8 and it is definitely a worthy attempt considering the head to head record.
