Bayer Leverkusen hosts Borussia Dortmund in round 17 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 19th at BayArena (Leverkusen)
After a good last season, few expected significant progress in game performance from Bayer. In fact, the Red-Blacks turned out to be capable of many things. Peter Bosz helped them return to an era of stability and prosperity. The Dutch mentor built the team based on a tactical scheme with a symbiosis of attack and defense. The club does not spend a lot in the transfer market, limiting itself to reasonable and thoughtful acquisitions. In winter, the club signed Fosu-Mensah from Manchester United. He should act as a competitor for Arias, L. Bender, and Weiser on the right flank of defense. Tapsoba, Wirtz, Amiri, Alario, and Schick are holding a quality season.

The change of coach served as a good shake-up for Borussia Dortmund. The Yellow-Blacks again began to show high-level football and regularly gain points in the local arena. So far, Terzic is an unknown figure in the coaching workshop, but Flick and Tuchel also were such at one time. Borussia held a good segment in the Bundesliga - a position in the top 4, a predominance of victories, and high-quality tactical characteristics. Terzic does not reinvent the wheel and works according to the tactical schemes of his predecessor. The coach is more concerned with the motivation and psychological state of the players. And Borussia has someone to play and achieve a high tournament result. Halland, Sancho, Hummels, Reus, Reina, Witsel - these players give a stable result in the local arena and are ready to shine in European Cups.
Both clubs are aiming for prize positions in the German championship, and their head-to-head match is of great importance at this point. Borussia is actively gaining momentum, and the Yellow-Blacks are trying to outrank their competitors and come out on top (a 7-point gap to the first place). Bayer is more stable, but Bosz's charges also periodically lose points. However, they do not drop out of the group of leaders. The last head-to-head meetings of these teams were highly productive, and we think this trend will continue.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
