          Recent Form

          In their last six games in all competitions, Dortmund have four wins and two losses.

          Although Eintracht Frankfurt took the lead in the 13th minute through former Dortmund man Mario Gotze, Adeyemi equalised for Dortmund before halftime. In the second half, a late goal from Mats Hummels and an even later penalty from Emre Can gave Dortmund the 3 - 1 win.

          The next time out saw Dortmund pick up their first win at Allianz Arena in ten years. Adeyemi opened the scoring in the tenth minute and Julian Ryerson secured the 2 - 0 win with his goal in the 83rd minute.

          However, back at Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund slumped to a loss against Stuttgart. Despite Stuttgart having just two shots on target in comparison to Dortmund’s seven shots on target, Serhou Guirassy scored the only goal of the game in the 64th minute to give Stuttgart the 1 - 0 win.

          The first leg of the Champions League Quarter Finals saw Dortmund in Spain to take on Atletico Madrid. Rodrigo De Paul gave Atletico the early lead in the fourth minute and Samuel Lino doubled the lead before halftime. Sebastien Haller did score late on for Dortmund but Atletico held on for the 2 - 1 win.

          A quickfire brace from Marcel Sabitzer gave Dortmund the 2 - 0 lead, but a goal from Maximilian Wober got Borussia Monchengladbach on the scoresheet before halftime. Despite the red card to Adeyemi early in the second half, Dortmund held on to the 2 - 1 win.

          Dortmund earned an emphatic 4-2 victory at home to Atletico Madrid to earn themselves a place in the Champions League semi-finals where they'll face PSG.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Bayer Leverkusen have five wins.

          Maximilian Beier gave Hoffenheim a shock lead at halftime, converting one of Hoffenheim’s two shots on target. However, with just two minutes of normal time remaining, Robert Andrich and Patrik Schick both scored to give Leverkusen the 2 - 1 win.

          The Semi Finals of the DFB-Pokal saw Leverkusen host Bundesliga 2 side Dusseldorf. Jeremie Frimpong, Amine Adli and Florian Wirtz all scored in the first half to give Leverkusen the 3 - 0 lead at halftime. Wirtz converted a penalty in the second half to secure the 4 - 0 win for Leverkusen.

          Back in the Bundesliga, Leverkusen were in the capital to face Union Berlin. Following the red card to Union Berlin’s Robin Gosens in the added time of the first half, Wirtz converted a penalty to give Leverkusen the 1 - 0 win.

          In the first leg of the Europa League Quarter Finals, Leverkusen hosted West Ham. The Hammers had just one shot on target in comparison to Leverkusen’s 13 shots on target as Jonas Hofmann and Victor Boniface both scored late on in a 2 - 0 win for Leverkusen.

          To win their first Bundesliga title, Bayer Leverkusen took on Werder Bremen. A hat-trick from Wirtz, a goal from Granit Xhaka and a penalty from Boniface gave Leverkusen a big 5 - 0 win.

          Bayer Leverkusen will also travel to London to take on West Ham in the second leg of the Europa League Quarter Finals.
