Welcome to our Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Dortmund are having a much better start to the season than last year, where they propped up the league for a long while. They have gained maximum points so far this season. Leverkusen on the other hand have had a mixed start to the season. They won their first two matches, but then lost to Bayern Munich. Worse was to follow, with a loss to newly promoted Darmstadt. They will want to get back on track this weekend.

This fixture rarely ends as a draw, with only 3 from the last 15 ending as draws. Leverkusen have done surprisingly well here, and I expect that to continue. For me it has to be a Leverkusen victory with a Dortmund victory a close second choice.
