Team News

Dortmund currently have a large injury list, with key players such as Subotic, Hummels and Reus all out for a significant amount of time. Dortmund will also be hoping for Lewandowski to be fit in time for the game.

Leverkusen have a smaller injury list, the most notable being Sidney Sam, who will not be available on Saturday.


This game should be great for the neutral. You can expect Leverkusen to be the stronger side, given that Dortmund are carrying many injuries. I think the likely result is a draw, with a victory for Leverkusen the second choice.
