Bayer Leverkusen are 5th on the Bundesliga table with 34 points after 20 matches. With 10 wins and six losses, Leverkusen will be eager to breach the top-four. They are currently sitting five points off fourth-placed Monchengladbach. Kevin Volland has been the key for his side having scored 7 goals and provided six assists. Attacking midfielder Kai Havertz is another exciting prospect in the Bundesliga and he will be the key if Leverkusen are to take all three points at home.
Meanwhile, Dortmund are coming off a surprising loss at Werder Bremen in DFB Pokal. Their league form has been excellent. They have won their last three matches and scored five in each of them. New signing Erling Haaland has been sensational for the German side. Haaland has already scored seven goals in just three appearances in the Bundesliga. It also includes a hat-trick on his Dortmund debut. English attacker Jadon Sancho is another player who is taking the Bundesliga by storm. He has already scored 12 league goals and provided 12 assists. Dortmund are third on the Bundesliga table. They are two points off second-placed RB Leipzig.
