Looking at the current turmoil Bayern Leverkusen are in, no one would say that this side was tearing up the league not too long back. Long vanished is the shine and glimmer engulfing the club back in December when they have managed to power their way past the stalwarts to sit atop of the points tally.
The club’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Union Berlin the last time around was the side’s fourth winless result in a spin. While the club continued to hold onto third spot despite the loss, it’s a spot under serious threat with only the one point gap separating them and 7th place.
Where they are treading over thin ice, Borussia Dortmund on the other hand are gradually restoring semblance with the side undefeated in its last three matches.

Lukas Hradecky from Bayer Leverkusen will slot his way into our side as the goal-keeper courtesy of his ability to keep attacking plays at bay.
They are yet to get their house in order defensively but Borussia Dortmund are gradually bridging that gap. And given their opponents massive decline infront of goal, the visiting team can easily end up with a cleansheet to its name.
We begin our picks from the club with Raphael Guerreiro who has the five assists. Mats Hummels has recorded three goals for his side to see him and Manuel Akanji complete the trio.
Elsewhere, Jonathan Tah’s ability to dispel attacks sees him be our pick from the home team.
A massive reason Borussia Dortmund are gradually recovering is due to Jadon Sancho’s resurgence. He’s rediscovering his touch with him recording five assists off late for the club.
Thomas Delaney also makes his way into our side from the club. The home side will meanwhile see us opt for their top assists provider with the 6 layups, Nadiem Amiri be instilled in our setup.
Scoring twice upon his return for the club, Erling Haaland showed why he’s considered as a wonderkid by many. Bayer Leverkusen see us opt for striker Patrik Schick who has struck on five occasions.
Leon Bailey has assisted him perfectly with the four goals and assists apiece.
