Dortmund - Fresh from their exertions in European competition, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer 04 Leverkusen return to domestic duty and take Matchday 5’s top billing on Sunday afternoon (kick-off: 15:30 GMT/17:30 CEST).
- Dortmund’s quartet of wins and goal difference of +12 is the club’s best-ever start to a Bundesliga season.

- Dortmund have won the last six Bundesliga home games - their best run since 1995 when Ottmar Hitzfeld was in charge.
- Leverkusen have lost on their last two Bundesliga outings, but have never suffered three successive defeats under Roger Schmidt.
