As for Leverkusen, they are currently sitting above Dortmund in fourth place in the standings. Prior to the international break, Peter Boaz’s side had an uninspiring 0-0 draw with Hoffenheim. Although the Dutch coach would have been frustrated at how his side was unable to break down the visitors, considering only 2 of their 20 shots found the target.
Fresh from two substitute appearances for Germany, midfielder Kai Havertz should start on Saturday. The youngster is widely considered to be one of the brightest talents in the Bundesliga and could have a major influence on the game.
Former Dortmund boss Peter Boaz has a fully fit side to choose from, however, he could switch up the side with an eye on Lovamotiv Moscow in the Champions League.
