With four games remaining in the Bundesliga season, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen are tied with 51 points. The two clubs round out the top four, trailing Bayern Munich and Schalke. Dortmund and Leverkusen are four points ahead of RB Leipzig in the race for the final Champions League spot. Saturday’s game between the two clubs in Dortmund will likely determine which club finishes in the top four.
Dortmund were convincingly beat 2-0 by Schalke last weekend. After picking up points in the first 12 games under Peter Stoger, Dortmund have lost two of their past three matches.
