Football News – Bayer Leverkusen-Borussia Dortmund
Bayer Leverkusen hosts Borussia Dortmund in a match from the 14th round of the German Bundesliga.
The two teams are next to each other in the Bundesliga standings. Borussia Dortmund are 5th with 21 points, while Leverkusen are 6th with 20 points. If a certain result happens, these two teams could exchange their position in the table.
Borussia Dortmund are currently in a very negative run of results in the Bundesliga. Peter Bosz’ team is without a win in the league in six consecutive games. In their last five matches Dortmund lost three times, which is unacceptable for a club with their ambitions. In their last game they had a 4-0 lead against Schalke 04, but the match ended with a 4-4 draw. This showed us how unstable Dortmund are regarding their mental state.
Meanwhile Bayer Leverkusen are doing much better. They are unbeaten in their last five matches, winning three of them. Including against Eintracht Frankfurt in the last round. Leverkusen are one of the teams in a good form in Germany at this moment, which makes them a slight favourite against Borussia Dortmund. Especially when they are playing at home.
Borussia Dortmund can’t use the injured Mario Gotze and the suspended Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, which is a serious hit for Peter Bosz. In the same time Lukasz Piszczek, Marco Reus and Hendrik Bonmann are also injured. This is not Bosz’ only problem, because Roman Burki, Alexander Isak, Sebastian Rode and Eric Durm are also doubtful for the match.
Meanwhile Leverkusen will be without the suspended Dominik Kohr, while Jonathan Tah, Wendell and Sven Bender are doubtful for the game. Everyone else is healthy and ready to play.
These two teams are close to each other in the standings, but Leverkusen are clearly the team in a better form. Will they continue with their positive run? Or maybe Dortmund will stop the negative one?
