Borussia Dortmund Vs Bayer Leverkusen German Bundesliga Live Online Commentary
Borussia Dortmund did improve their performances over the last couple of weeks since they managed to pick two straight victories having scored three goals against Wolfsburg and Freiburg each. By the way, Tuchel’s men did not concede a single goal in these games and we can say that the hosts will come in the game in high spirits. As regards team news: Borussia are doubtful over Nuri Sahin, Sokratis, Sebastian Rode, and Sven Bender. Also, Mario Gotze has been ruled out for the foreseeable future due to “metabolic disturbances”.
Meanwhile, the story is completely different with Bayer who have suffered two successive defeats. The defensive line revealed plenty of holes to be exploited by top quality forwards such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Bayer conceded as many as six goals in two homeground losses to Atletico Madrid and Mainz 05. As for team news: Leverkusen be without Hakan Calhanoglu, who has been banned for four months for a breach of contract with Turkish side Trabszonspor. The skipper Lars Bender is also doubtful ahead of this game.
