      Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions

       

      Both teams will head into this match having played Portugese opposition in the Europa League round of 16 just 3 days earlier. Bayer Leverkusen are without a win at home against Borussia Dortmund in 8 games and they have dropped more points at home to Dortmund than against any other team.

      Dortmund’s current points tally would be enough to top the table at this stage in 40 of 52 previous Bundesliga campaigns played to date. Dortmund sit in 2nd place still 6 points below top of the league Bayern Munich but a whopping 13 points clear of 3rd place Bayer Leverkusen. A huge contrast from last season where Dortmund came into the same fixture under Jurgen Klopp with the resulting 0-0 draw seeing Dortmund slip to the bottom of the Bundesliga.

      Leverkusen are however 6 games undefeated after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Darmstadt 98 picking up 14 from a possible 18 points.

      REASON FOR BETTING TIPS

      Bayer Leverkusen will be without Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez who might be out for up to three weeks with the injury he suffered in Leverkusen’s DFB-Pokal defeat to Werder Bremen this week. He has been a vital goal scoring component for Leverkusen this season with 13 goals in 16 appearances (22 goals in 26 games in all appearances) and he won the Bundesliga player of the month in January. Dortmund on the other hand have Pierre Emerick Aubameyang returning from injury with his equally impressive 30 goals in 31 games across all competitions. With Dortmund’s unbelievable league form this year, their main goalscorer Aubameyang returning from a short injury spell and Leverkusen missing their main goal scoring striker, an away win for Dortmund extending their unbeaten 8 game run away at Leverkusen with a scoreline of Dortmund 2-0 at 10/1 seems a likely outcome.
