Borussia Dortmund vs Bayer Leverkusen build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
For Dortmund, this is the final game of Edin Terzic’s reign, with the interim boss being replaced by Marco Rose in the summer. After a tough start to life as a manager, Terzic turned things around at Dortmund and, in the end, they qualified for the Champions League with a few games to spare. Last week, they also won the DFB-Pokal with relative ease, beating RB Leipzig 4-1 in the final. That final win came as part of a seven-game winning run across all competitions, Dortmund’s best streak since early 2016, while their six consecutive Bundesliga victories is the best record in the division this season.
Hannes Wolf will also be taking charge of his final Bayer Leverkusen game as interim manager after replacing Peter Bosz in March. Wolf brought some form of stability back to Leverkusen, winning three and drawing three of his seven games in charge so far, with the only defeat coming against Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich. He will be replaced by Gerard Seaone in the summer, and leaves the incoming Swiss with a Europa League team having confirmed a sixth-placed finish. Now, Wolf has one final chance to end his poor away record in the Bundesliga, still winless on the road after 13 games (for Leverkusen and Hamburg).
- Borussia Dortmund (vs Mainz): Burki; Meunier, Hummels, Akanji, Guerreiro; Bellingham, Dahoud, Reus; Reyna, Haaland, Sancho.

Nadiem Amiri and Edmond Tapsoba are suspended for Leverkusen, who will also be without Lucas Alario, Santiago Arias, Leon Bailey, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Exequiel Palacios, Daley Sinkgraven and Lars Bender, with the latter retiring at the end of the season.

Players to watch:
- Borussia Dortmund: It will be a day of goodbyes on Saturday, with Lukasz Piszczek retiring from professional football at the end of the season. As a result, and with nothing on the line, you can expect the Polish right-back to start against Bayer Leverkusen. Piszczek had initially planned to retire last season but would go on to sign a one-year extension, delaying his departure until this year. But there will not be another delay, with Piszczek set to play for Goczalkowice in Poland’s third tier – his hometown club where his father is vice-president, while he also started a youth academy in the village. Piszczek joined Dortmund from Hertha Berlin in 2010 and has gone on to become a legend at the club, helping them to win two Bundesliga titles and three DFB-Pokals as well as finishing runners-up in the 2013 Champions League.
- Bayer Leverkusen: Like his twin brother Lars, Sven Bender will also be retiring at the end of the season, but he will at least get to say his goodbye on the pitch. Bender has been at Leverkusen for four years, joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, having spent eight years with BVB. However, Bender’s final season hasn’t been the best, with the former German international spending a chunk sidelined due to injury (though he hasn’t been as unlucky as his brother). Saturday will be a sad day as it brings an end to the careers of football’s most famous twins.
