Dortmund may see the distance between themselves and the leaders increase to nine points before they have the opportunity to kick a ball on Sunday as a result of Bayern playing sooner on the weekend, matchday 21.
Marco Rose will, nevertheless, be hopeful that Die Roten Bullen can help his team since the leaders have their own difficult test coming up against RB Leipzig at the Allianz Arena.
However, because their fate is already determined, Rose and his team can only concentrate on themselves and work to consistently get three points in the hopes that Bayern will one day make a rare mistake.
That is exactly how BVB has performed since returning from Germany’s winter break as well. They overcame a 2-0 deficit to defeat Eintracht Frankfurt in a thrilling game that ended in a 3-2 victory, then thrashed high-flying Freiburg by a score of 5-1, before taking down European contender Hoffenheim in a thrilling game that ended in a 3-2 victory just before the break.
Dortmund will hold onto the faint optimism that the Bayern machine can finally be stopped from retaining their title come May after the first of those victories, at Die Adler, reduced the ominous winter break difference of nine points down to the current six.
The Black and Yellows will be hopeful of winning their fourth straight Bundesliga game on Sunday and putting the pressure on the Bavarians after winning their last six encounters with Leverkusen at Signal Iduna Stadium, where they have scored an incredible 23 goals in that time.
Leverkusen, meanwhile, may be virtually out of the Bundesliga playoff race with eight points between them and their hosts going into Sunday’s match and a staggering 14 points separating them and Bayern at the top, but they still have a lot to play for in the coming months of the season.
