Leverkusen vs Dortmund Free Betting Tips
The black and yellow absolutely want to score three times again, on the one hand to further increase the gap of five points to the Werkself in fifth place in the table.
On the other hand, because of the top game between Bayern and Leipzig, which steal the points from each other, BVB would definitely land another “big point” in the championship question.
Bookies consider Borussia to win that away in all probability. After all, Leverkusen against Dortmund is only the outsider according to odds in their own stadium.
An assessment that is also historically proven. Finally, BVB only lost one of the last twelve guest appearances in the BayArena (five wins, six draws), which is important information for the forecast at Leverkusen against Dortmund.
In any case, the Werkself are not overly strong at home this season, as evidenced by the four wins from ten home games. Only the danger of a draw must be taken into account in the tip at Leverkusen against Dortmund. We combine the Double Chance X2 with the very likely market “Both teams to score: Yes”.
Leverkusen – Statistics & current form
With a streaky week behind them, Bayer Leverkusen go into a potentially groundbreaking home game against Borussia Dortmund. The Werkself initially lost 2-1 away at Hoffenheim last Saturday before they were shaky in the DFB Cup at home against Underdog VfB Stuttgart during the week.
The Leverkusen team was just able to avert the extra time after the game had already been decided and would have almost twice lost a lead within just five days.
This shows that the fifth in the current table is not running as well as the latest results would suggest. The Werkself finally won three of the last four league games, although it should be noted that nine points were compulsory against Mainz, Paderborn and Düsseldorf.
After all, Bayer Leverkusen is one of four teams that were allowed to represent the Bundesliga in the Champions League this season, even if the Werkself were the only one of the four German representatives who did not get past the preliminary round.
The team of Peter Bosz, who once again meets his former employer today, would like to be among the top four teams again in May to qualify for the premier class again. In order for this to succeed, it would be all the more important that tip 1 goes up against Leverkusen against Dortmund. After all, there are currently five points between the two teams.
Thus, the home game against the black-yellow is also a kind of six-point game for the red-white-black, who have not been able to sell too expensive in front of their own fans. Only four of the ten home games in the Bundesliga ended in a three. That gives Bayer a sobering ninth place in the home table.
Leverkusen leads in a ranking with a clear distance, although it is a rather dubious award. With Kerem Demirbay, the Werkself player flew from the pitch for the sixth time this season at the away bust in Hoffenheim. No other Bundesliga club has posted more than three relegations from the previous 20 league games.
This also means that Bayer 04 will have to do without the former Hoffenheim player in this groundbreaking game against BVB, which is about shaking off the negative series. The Werkself lost four duels in series against the black and yellow. The Red-White-Blacks have also been waiting for a win for six games – a dry spell that Leverkusen has not had against any other first division team.

Dortmund – Statistics & current form
Borussia Dortmund surprisingly failed during the week in the DFB Cup away at SV Werder Bremen. Overall, however, the 2020 calendar year has been extremely positive for the current vice-champion.
With three wins and a goal difference of +11 on 15 goals and four goals conceded, BVB has set a new record for the best start to a second half of the Bundesliga. So far, only Borussia Mönchengladbach has been able to open a second half with 15 goals from the first three games, but this goes back to the 1966/67 season.
“Leverkusen is a different caliber. They have strengthened again in the winter with two or three players. It is a very good team. We must pay attention!” – Lucien Favre at bundesliga.com
The face of the success is undoubtedly the celebrated winter entry Erling Haaland, who scored an incredible seven of these 15 goals single-handedly. This results in numbers where even a goal machine like Robert Lewandowski has to rub his eyes in amazement.
After all, the young Norwegian has not yet played through and was only on the pitch in 136 appearances in German football’s top floor. In other words, Erling Haaland scored a goal in the Bundesliga every 19 minutes.
In Leverkusen, the hope of the black and yellow should rest on him again, especially as captain Marco Reus, who put together a two-pack in the 4-0 first leg victory over the Werkself, suffered a muscle injury at the cup and his team will be missing for four weeks. The club’s management recently announced that it would not be enough for the round of 16 first leg in the Champions League against Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain.
Youngster Jadon Sancho, who could also make the difference in the BayArena, should not be neglected. The 19-year-old scored his 25th Bundesliga goal in Saturday’s 5-0 win over Union Berlin last Saturday, making him the youngest player ever to reach this milestone.
His person also ensures that the bookmakers’ odds in the direction of Borussia deflect at Leverkusen against Dortmund. In addition, there is the strong black-yellow record against the Werkself, against whom seven of the last nine duels in the Bundesliga have been won.
Yet another threesome is certainly not a sure-fire success. Was Borussia finally vulnerable in the course of the season so far, then in the distance. Still unbeaten at home in league operations, BVB were only able to win four of the ten games in foreign places after three defeats.
Should the black and yellow win number five today, it would certainly be a really good omen. Dortmund won the first four games of the second half of the season last year in the 2011/12 season. As is well known, the double jumped out at the end …
Best goal scorers in the league:
🥇 Jadon Sancho (12 goals)
🥈 Marco Reus (11 goals)
Probable lineup of Dortmund:
↪ Bürki – Zagadou – Hummels – Can – Guerreiro – Witsel – Brandt – Hakimi – Sancho – Reyna – Haaland
