• Bayer 04 Leverkusen have failed to win any of their last six home matches against Borussia Dortmund (D3, L3).
  • Leverkusen’s last home victory over BVB was almost seven years ago – a 2-1 win on May 19th 2007 (goals: Kießling, Rolfes – Smolarek).
  • Bayer 04 have won their last seven Bundesliga games with Sascha Lewandowski in the dugout and are unbeaten in their last 10 top-flight matches under him (W8, D2).
  • Dortmund have qualified for the Champions League for the fourth time in a row (BVB are already guaranteed at least 3rd place) – they haven’t had as long a streak as that before.
  • Leverkusen haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 11 games – the last time they went as long without one was in 2008/09 (a run of 14 games).
  • Klopp’s side are unbeaten in six games (W5, D1), most recently winning four on the spin – something they’ve only otherwise done at the start of the campaign (5 wins from the first 5 matchdays).
  • All four of Leverkusen’s goals in their 5-1 win over Nürnberg on the last matchday were scored by defenders (Spahic twice, Boenisch and Hilbert) – Bayer 04 hadn’t scored a single goal from a defensive player before that this season.
  • Borussia Dortmund celebrated their 20th win this Bundesliga season on the last matchday – BVB “only” won 19 times in the whole of the last campaign.
  • In Stefan Kießling (15 goals) and Robert Lewandowski (18), two of the Bundesliga’s top scorers meet in this game. Kießling (25 goals) just pipped Lewandowski (24) to the golden boot last season.
  • With 26 scorer-points (15 goals + 11 assists), Marco Reus is the Bundesliga’s top points-scorer – he has been involved in 14 of BVB’s last 17 goals in all competitions (82%), scoring nine of them himself (5 assists).
  • With an average of two points per game, Sascha Lewandowski is Leverkusen’s best Bundesliga manager of all time (at least 9 games in charge required).
