Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen preview, betting tips and prediction
April 20, 2018
With just four games to go, the Bundesliga race for Champions League places is as competitive as ever. And due to its competitiveness, we are treated every week to at least one fixture between two contenders for said places. This week, Borussia Dortmund host Bayer Leverkusen, who climbed above them in the table last week with a 4-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
A late hat-trick from Kevin Volland took the striker to second in the goalscoring ranks, making him the leading German player in the chase for the Golden Boot. He’s still some distance behind Robert Lewandowski and has no chance of catching the Polish hitman. However, the motivation for Volland is a place in Germany’s World Cup squad this summer.
Leverkusen are coming off the back of a potentially demoralising German Cup exit to Bayern Munich in midweek. 6-2 defeats should always be demoralising but the focus on securing a Champions League place. Unless, of course, they think back to the last time that they travelled to Dortmund. When they lost 6-2. Expect more goals to flow.
