Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 6 August 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Right in the first match-day of the Bundesliga season itself we have a mammoth clash between 2 of its titans. Borussia Dortmund will host rivals Bayer Leverkusen this Saturday and either team will be gunning for a victory in this season-opener.
Borussia once again lost the title to the Barbarians the last season.
But it deserves to be mentioned that they were easily the best team in the competition if not for the presence of Bayern, and with the exclusion of the Bavarians, Der BVB had scored the most number of goals.
Going on this is a testing period for Dortmund. They are without the services of their star striker Erling Haaland and it needs to be seen just how good good their offense will be this time around in the German top flight.
But selling top players has not been a new thing for the team and the expectation is that they will cope just as always.
Meanwhile Leverkusen had finished just below in the 3rd position and with the addition of the Bavarians as well, these 3 teams were the best in the Bundesliga the last season.
Do also note that these 3 teams were the only ones to have scored 80 or more goals in the competition.
Moreover, majority of head-to-head clashes over the years also have witnessed goals coming in plenty between these 2 teams and judging all these observations we can expect a high-scoring affair this weekend.
