Borussia Dortmund are looking make it three wins in a row when hosting Bayer Leverkusen at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 15:30CET/14:30GMT).
Third-placed Dortmund chalked up a second consecutive 3-0 win with victory in Freiburg on Matchday 22. That was the first time that Thomas Tuchel’s side had kept back-to-back clean sheets in the Bundesliga this season and also saw Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang return to goalscoring form. The Gabon striker’s brace took his tally to 19 league goals, level with Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski at the top of the scoring charts.
By contrast, Bayer Leverkusen slumped to a third defeat in five league matches last weekend when Mainz left the BayArena with a 2-0 win. Having scored four times in their two wins before that, Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez will be planning to get back among the goals: the Mexico international has 10 Bundesliga goals this season – the third of which came in Leverkusen's 2-0 home win against Dortmund at the start of October.
