Action from the Bundesliga in the game of the day on Saturday as Bayer Leverkusen host a struggling Borussia Dortmund in the Bay Arena. Borussia Dortmund are in the relgation place remarkaby although just four points seperates eighteenth and twelfth so a couple of wins and last year's runners up can get themselves out of this relegation trouble. Jurgen Klopp will be looking to Immobile, Kagawa and the returning Aubeymeyang to kick start the season and get Borussia Dortmund moving in the right direction , up the table. While Kagawa and Aubeymeyang are only back from International duty the return of star man Marco Reus is really what Borussia Dortmund fans are waiting for.
Bayer Leverkusen are sitting in third in the table and chasing Wolfsburg. Wolfsburg surprise victory over Bayern Munich on Friday has opened up a nine point gap and Leverkusen will be looking to close that to six when they take on an out of sorts borussia Dortmund. Leverkusen will look to Son and kiebling up front to lead the line although neither has been prolific this season both are good goal scorers and will fancy their chances against a a Dortmund team that have failed to keep a clean sheet in their nine away games this season.
This one is tough to call as with the Winter break coming at the right time for borussia Dortmund to regroup I think that lat years runners up may come out of the break re invigorated and with more fight. Leverkusen themselves have struggled to score and have drawn three of their last five home games in the league. I'm going to take the draw here. I think Dortmund will put in a good performance here and get themselves something from the game.
