How to watch the Bundesliga match between Leverkusen and Dortmund, as well as kick-off time and team news.

Bayer Leverkusen will be aiming to keep their lead at the top of the Bundesliga table when they host Borussia Dortmund at the BayArena on Sunday for what is set to be the biggest game of the weekend in the German top-flight.

Having dropped just two of a possible 36 points to sit two points clear of the reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich at the top of the pile, Leverkusen have been simply spectacular under the tutelage of Xabi Alonso, and have made their best-ever start to a Bundesliga season.

Die Werkself are one of the most destructive, in-form attacking sides in Europe, having romped to the Europa League last 16 with a 100% win record in the group stages. Dortmund, meanwhile, returned to winning ways against Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, but they are not in title contention like last season, and head into this encounter 10 points behind their forthcoming opponents.

While Leverkusen certainly remain a very difficult assignment, BVB have shown this season that they are capable of playing very dangerous football and beating the odds, even when all the chips seem to be stacked against them, as evident from their extraordinary performance in the Champions League.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
