When they play home to Borussia Dortmund on Sunday, Bayer Leverkusen will have the goal of winning their sixth straight league encounter in their sights. Since their return to competition following participation in the World Cup, the away team has been successful in both of the matches in which they have participated.
Xabi Alonso took over Leverkusen in early October when they were in a precarious situation inside the relegation zone. Since then, he has worked wonders in recent games to move them away from safety and toward the European spots.
After three years with Real Sociedad’s B team, the former Real Madrid midfielder, who is taking on his first senior managerial position, had just one victory in his first seven matches across all competitions. However, his team has since won five straight league games to move up to eighth in the standings.
Alonso will be anxious to see his team maintain its winning momentum as they attempt to compete on two fronts between now and May. A two-legged match against Monaco awaits them in the last-32 of the Europa League in a few weeks.
Let’s check the latest picks, Bundesliga news, stats and Bundesliga expert picks for Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Dortmund. We’ve plenty of Bundesliga predictions for you to consider.
The World Cup started in November, and Dortmund lost their final two games. However, in the last week, Edin Terzic’s team narrowly defeated Augsburg and Mainz 05, suggesting that they may have benefited from the break.
Last Saturday, BVB faced Augsburg in a seven-goal thriller at Signal Iduna Park. Enrico Maassen’s team twice pushed Augsburg back before Giovanni Reyna made headlines off the field by stealing the victory with his goal in the 78th minute.
Reyna has drawn a lot of public ire recently after it was revealed that his international boss Gregg Berhalter nearly had him sent home from Qatar owing to attitude problems. However, after scoring another late goal away to Mainz on Wednesday night, Reyna seems to have something to prove.
With Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt tied on points, Dortmund is now in fifth place ahead of the weekend’s games thanks to those extra two points. Terzic will be aware, though, that his team will need to improve if they hope to win in Leverkusen on Sunday.
