Bundesliga 2019-20, Borussia Dortmund v Bayer Leverkusen: Match Preview, Where to Watch, Betting Information and more
Borussia Dortmund return to Bundesliga action with the hopes of resuming normal service as they welcome Bayer Leverkusen to the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.
Just one point separates these two sides in the league, after Dortmund lost all three points last time out against Union Berlin. However, Lucien Favre's side will be high on confidence fully aware of the fact that they have beaten Leverkusen in each of their last three meetings.
As far as the visitors are concerned, they will be looking to get back to winning ways as well following their draw against Hoffenheim. However, they'll be up against a deadly duo in the form of Paco Alcacer, who has netted in each of his last five competitive games, and Jadon Sancho, who has 10 assists this calendar year in the league.
Ahead of what is expected to be an exhilarating contest between two exciting teams, we bring you everything you need to know about this game.

Key Player to Watch Out For
Who else but this man? Jadon Sancho is simply the cream of the crop at Dortmund at the moment. With two goals and three assists in the three games he's played thus far, the Englishman is on fire.
For a winger to maintain a pass success rate of 88% is remarkable, and Sancho seems to have everything in his locker that could make him a 20-goal sensation over the course of the season.
Moreover, he'll enter this contest brimming with confidence after his brace for England in the dramatic 5-3 victory over Kosovo.
He has linked up beautifully with Marco Reus this season, and with Dortmund expected to stick to their fearless, fast-paced brand of football in home conditions, expect the same to transpire.
Borussia Dortmund win: 1.75
Bayer Leverkusen win: 4.20
Jadon Sancho to find the back of the net: 2.30
