Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch

Top-four chasers Borussia Dortmund resume their league campaign when they host freshly crowned Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen at Signal Iduna Park on Sunday.

Edin Terzic's side booked their ticket into the Champions League semi-final for the first time since 2012-13 after their incredible 5-4 aggregate win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. Despite their exploits in the elite-tier European competition, they are not assured of participation in the same next year.

BVB are currently in a heated battle with RB Leipzig for a top-four spot, although there is now a big chance that both teams will get Champions League qualification as a result of the expanded tournament giving the best two performing nations an extra spot based on their coefficient rating from the previous season.

On the other hand, Xabi Alonso's Leverkusen have incredibly extended their unbeaten run to 44 matches in 2023-24 after Thursday's 1-1 Europa League draw at West Ham United, making it the best streak of any European team without a loss.

Last weekend's spectacular 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen also secured the club's first-ever Bundesliga title, and they are now looking to go the entire season invincible, as well as adding the Europa League and DFB Pokal to their trophy collection.

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