Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

Dortmund have really missed the presence of Marco Reus in recent weeks. They’ve take just two points from a possible nine without him the side, and although he may return to the side in time for this crucial fixture, he may only be fit enough for a place on the bench. Dortmund failed to score against lowly Nurnberg on Monday night, and struggled to create clear-cut chances. They know the importance of getting back to winning ways, but rediscovering that killer touch can sometimes be the toughest challenge. Leverkusen have come on leaps and bounds since Peter Bosz took over, and he will be keen to get one over on his former employers. They’ve taken twelve points from a possible 15 and have conceded just three times during that period. Even with a Europa League game on Thursday night, they should have enough energy to get something from this game. The heat is on Borussia Dortmund, and this is far from the ideal fixture for them. Leverkusen can pick up at least a point in this game and +1 on the handicap is the first of our Bundesliga betting tips for Sunday afternoon.


Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Goals Betting Tips

Monday was just the second time that Dortmund have failed to score this season, with both blanks coming against the bottom two. They have a number of players who will keen to get on the score-sheet here, with the returning Marco Reus likely to be amongst them. Leverkusen are in free-scoring form with the likes of Leon Bailey and Kai Havertz benefitting from Bosz’s arrival. There’s been a superb upturn in form for Leverkusen and they’re scoring freely. Three of Leverkusen’s last four games have ended with three or more goals, and they’ve kept just two clean sheets in their last eight games. Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score is a decent price, considering the recent form of these two sides, and this could be another entertaining game between the pair. It’s the second of our Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen predictions for this weekend.


Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Anytime Goalscorer Predictions

The aforementioned Kai Havertz has seen an upturn in form recently, and he’s been in prolific form coming into this clash. The 19-year is still learning his craft and had a relatively slow start to the season, but he’s started to put together a superb run of form and is looking for his 13th goal in all competitions here. He’s three times since the Bundesliga got back underway following its winter break, and two of those strikes have come away from home. He’s a value pick in a market full of goalscoring possibilities. Kai Havertz to Score Anytime is the third of our Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen predictions.


Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Betting Preview

Dortmund begin as the odds-on favourites for this game and they can backed at around 5/6 to collect three points here. Bayer Leverkusen are priced up at 14/5, but they are in superb form, and many people will be keen to back them to continue their recent upward momentum. The draw is available at 16/5.

The bookies are expecting goals in this game and it’s 1/2 for Over 2.5 Goals in this tie. Over 3.5 Goals is tempting and would have landed in three of their last four meetings. It’s 6/5 today. Those who want to go against the grain and back a cautious low-scoring game can take the 13/8 on offer for Under 2.5 Goals.

Paco Alcacer is on a barren run, but that is likely to end at some stage, and he is 15/4 to net the opener here. Mario Gotze is 5/1 to grab the opener at Signal Iduna Park. Jadon Sancho has made plenty of headlines this season and he is 13/2 to break the deadlock in this one whilst Leverkusen’s Kevin Volland is 8/1 to score the opening goal of the game.
