Dortmund – Leverkusen Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 09:30

The German central defender Mats Hummels soccer since 1995 in the youth of Bayern Munich. Dortmund paid the club from Munich in 2009 a transfer fee of 4 million euros. At this club in 2007 he makes his debut in professional football but the real breakthrough to rival Borussia Dortmund. After just one game in the first team to have played Bayren Munich leaves Hummels in 2008 first on a rental basis, later permanently to another German club, Borussia Dortmund.

Bayer Leverkusen are no longer regarded as a club capable of challenging in the Bundesliga and Champions League, but given the gradual improvements theyve made over the course of the last few years, it doesnt seem as if theyre all too far away from reaching that point. Theyve got a handful of exciting stars that they need to mesh together with their established first teamers, and if they can find that kind of cohesion theyve been looking for, the sky truly is the limit for what they could go on to accomplish.

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Stats

Dortmund had their first hiccup of the new season last time out as they were defeated 3-1 away to Bundesliga newcomers Union Berlin. Coach Lucien Favre will have spent plenty of time analysing the game since namely, his defence, as they conceded two goals from corners so injuries to defenders Manuel Akanji and Nico Schulz over the international break are untimely. Every cloud has a silver lining though. Jadon Sancho returns to the squad having scored his first goals for England.

The Millionaires aim to bounce back from a shocking 3-1 loss to newcomers Union Berlin and we are positive that Marco Reus and Co. All eyes will be on Signal-Iduna-Park when Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen face each other in the Bundesliga derby on Saturday afternoon. are going to leave their hearts on the field. A man to watch in the home team will be England international Sancho, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.

Theyve seen a DFB Pokal exit in the hands of Werder Bremen (on penalties after a 3-3 draw) as well as a 3-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur in Champions League along the way, which could be even more worrying for Lucien Favre and his men. Die Borussen have been held to league draws by Eintracht Frankfurt (1-1), Hoffenheim (3-3), and Nurnberg (0-0) which sees Bayern Munich close in what shapes a thriller title chase.

Bayer Leverkusen had twenty shots but only two of them were on the target. I expect attacking football with goals on both sides. There is a chance that Bayer Leverkusen will be the first to score. The last match they played at home against Hoffenheim and Bayer wasnt able to win it even though they held the ball in their possession for more than seventy percent of the time. Bayer Leverkusen is one of the four still undefeated teams in this season. After ninety minutes of play, the match ended 0-0.

Borussia Dortmund scored seven of their nine goals in the second halves of the matches. Paco Alcacer is the teams top goalscorer with four goals scored in three matches. Bayer Leverkusen plays fantastic football in the first forty-five minutes. It is still too early to speak about an average number of goals but so far it is extremely high. On average there are three goals in Leverkusen matches. They scored five of their six goals in that period. The greatest danger for Borussia will be Kevin Volland who scores against them often. BvB won their four last encounters against Bayer Leverkusen when the matches are held in Dortmund. In all those games, Dortmund scored at least three times. In the last two games, Sancho scored for Dortmund once per match. In Borussias matches, one can expect over 4.5 goals.

Former-Nice and Borussia Monchengladbach boss Lucien Favre is the manDer BVBhave assigned to mould them into title contenders once again, and with 11 points from their opening five matches (W3 D2), hes getting them back on the right track in fact, Dortmund have only gotten off to a better start under one coach: Thomas Tuchel. Either he or Maximilian Philipp should spearhead the Dortmund attack alongside captainMarco Reusand winger Christian Pulisic (pictured). Favre will no doubtbe contemplating the addition of Spanish forward Paco Alcacer, on loanfrom Barcelona, to the attacking trio this weekend after resting him in the 7-0 hammering of Nurnberg at Signal-Iduna Park on Wednesday. Borussia Dortmunds landscape is a lot different now than the glory days of the early 2010s and last seasons topsy-turvy performances have prompted due change.

2019-20 Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview & Prediction

Leverkusen conceded three goals over the two games prior, including two in the opening 25 minutes of their thrilling 3-2 win over newly promoted Paderborn on the opening day. Former-Dortmund boss Peter Bosz will no doubt be aware of his sides own defensive issues though. Leverkusen did manage to register their first clean sheet in eight games last time out, but that came against a rebuilding Hoffenheim side.

Mats comes to 32 league matches, scoring five goals and win the league title with Borussia. This time with 81 points, an absolute Bundesliga record. He is then seen as one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga. In the 2010-2011 season playing Hummels in the base and he stands out with its excellent playmaking, tackles and defensive actions. The league title is won in the 2011-2012 season.

Bayer Leverkusen will now hope to capitalize on such woes and bag their fifth Bundesliga win in a row, hoping to catch up with the leagues top 4 as they sit five points behind 4th placed RB Leipzig after 22 games played. They have an even busier schedule of recent, though, and have a lot to prove just days after the Europa League clash against Krasnodar.

The teams in question are Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen, both of whom will have pretty high expectations for the campaign ahead. The Bundesliga returns this weekend following the international break, with two of the top tiers finest squaring off in a thrilling early season encounter. Dortmund pushed Bayern Munich all the way in the title race last season, whereas Leverkusen are hoping to improve on their fourth place finish as they set their sights on an unlikely title challenge.
