Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen are currently eighth in the league, and have won their last five league games. Manager Xabi Alonso deserves credit for the job he has done so far with the Bundesliga club, but will hope that the likes of Moussa Diaby and Jeremie Frimpong do not gravitate towards the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, clubs who have been linked with their services.

There is also hope that young talent Florian Wirtz, regarded as one of the best talents in German football right now, is able to recover from his injury issues quickly. Wirtz suffered a serious injury last year, as a result of which he missed out on the World Cup as well. The 19-year-old is expected to become an integral part of the national team setup in the future.
