League leaders Borussia Dortmund host European chasing Bayern Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon in one of the highlights of the Bundesliga weekend.
It is a big weekend in Germany – Borussia M’gladbach and Schalke 04 are also set to go head to head – and there is no doubt that this clash in Dortmund is one everyone is looking forward to.
Things are extremely tight at the top of course. Borussia Dortmund may be leading the way at the moment, but they are only two points clear of Bayern Munich.
Then, the entire top four is only separated by three points.

All of this makes every single game important. Especially the ones where other teams might be hoping you slip up.
For Jurgen Klopp’s Dortmund this weekend for example, many will hope that Leverkusen can get a positive result, so it will be a massive win for the league leaders should they achieve it.
Their form certainly suggests they will get the job done. They have won their last four Bundesliga games, scoring an impressive 12 times in the process. They have also only lost once at home all season, a rare defeat to Hertha Berlin back in September.
Leverkusen are are more than capable side though and will cause their hosts some problems. Robin Dutt’s men may have only won one of their last five league games, but they held Dortmund to a draw earlier in the season and will look to frustrate them again.
Leverkusen will have to try and avoid looking too far ahead this weekend too. They have a massive Champions League tie against Barcelona next week, but they must focus all of their energy on domestic matters for now. Otherwise, they could get a hammering.
Looking at the team news for this one, Dortmund look like having their strongest possible side available, with Kevin Grosskreutz, Ilkay Gundogan and Jakub Blaszczykowski all likely to return to the side while Leverkusen are without the suspended Michal Kadlec and the injured Sidney Sam.
Overall, Dortmund are definitely the favourites, but should they have an off day, Leverkusen will be waiting to make them pay. It should be a cracking contest between two of Germany’s strongest teams.
