Both teams are flying pretty high at the moment in the Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen is in 5th place, with 5 points fewer than Borussia Dortmund, a team that’s currently third in the rankings. Borussia Dortmund players must feel very excited ahead of this game, as they’re only 3 points behind Bayern Munich, which is the team that’s topping the Bundesliga table. They also have only 2 points fewer than RB Leipzig who are in second place.
With a win over Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund could get to the second place on the table. It’s because, in the same round, RB Leipzig is welcoming Bayern Munich.
