Both sides are coming after meeting tough oppositions in their mid-week Champions League fixtures and fatigue will become an issue here. So expect both teams to be less intensive as usual despite this being a pretty important fixture.

Dortmund certainly look like a team on top of their form at the moment, while Leverkusen are inconsistent. Moreover Dortmund are unbeaten in their 9 previous visits to BayArena and surely go into this match with a psychological advantage.

Also these two sides have kept only one clean sheet from their 5 league matches this season and there is a good chance for this games to see both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals.
