BVB aiming to hit the ground running in Leverkusen

Leverkusen - If the sides' encounter earlier this season was anything to go by, then Bundesliga fans are in for quite a treat when Bayer 04 Leverkusen host Borussia Dortmund in Matchday 18's Saturday night clash (kick off: 18.30 CET / 17.30 GMT).

Karim Bellarabi got Leverkusen's season off to a flyer with a goal after only nine seconds at the Signal Iduna Park on Matchday 1 as die Werkself emerged 2-0 victors. The loss foreshadowed a wretched Hinrunde for BVB, and Jürgen Klopp knows that his side can hardly afford a repeat performance when two of the Bundesliga's most instinctively attacking sides get the second half of their seasons underway.
