Borussia Dortmund v Bayer Leverkusen

  • Saturday, 17:30 BST
  • TV: Sky Sports Football

Borussia Dortmund are fancied by many to be the main challenger to Bayern Munich's dominance in the Bundesliga this season, and it's a tricky game to kick things off as they welcome Bayer Leverkusen.

Leverkusen secured Champions League football following a third place finish in 21/22 and only champions Bayern saw better results away from home.

That said, it was the same situation for Dortmund in terms of home games - with 13 wins from the 17 contests in front of their own supporters. Bayern saw just two points more in the home table.

Last season, 57.6% of Dortmund's goals for came in the second-half, while 51.9% of goals conceded were in the same period.

For Leverkusen, they saw a near even split of first and second half goals - 51.3% in the second - while 55.3% of goals against were after the half-time break.

At a best price of 13/10, there is appeal in taking BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE IN THE SECOND-HALF. We're never short of goals when these two meet.

Over 6.5 goals would have won in BOTH of the games last season - with the above selection unsurprisingly a winner.

With BTTS such a short price - best odds available are 9/20 - the value comes in backing it to happen in the second 45 of this contest.
