This is our first real test, players like Auba will have to stop missing sitters as it is the case sometimes, we have to be absolutely clinical in front of goals....I'm counting on Ginter to continue his great form, I expect a goal or an assist from him...We can't afford give Bayer 04 too much space or players like Calhanoglu will punish us...All in all I'm expecting a 3-1 win for us....Let's Go BVB..

What do you think, can Auba score in this match? Will Reus play today, he is out of injury?

Reus trained on friday and yesterday without any problems so I think he'll play today, maybe he won't start the match or if he starts he'll be withdrawn in the second half as a precaution...

We are on fire, great performance from lads, the clean sheet is more like an icing on the cake, I'm glad we reclaimed our top spot position even though its on goal difference...who's next on the list?...

Pleasure is all mine Mich, I expected the game to be a close call considering the fact that Bayer 04 possess great quality as well. So to my surprise we were all over them, Gundogan and Weigl didn't allow them any space in midfield while Papa had Chicharito in his pocket and the attacking line of Shinji, Miki, Hofman along with Auba continued to cause problems for them...I'm also glad Tuchel opted not to risk a half fit Reus...

great to hear. will try to watch a summary tonight. i honestly thought we would get massively into trouble against them, considering the speed of Bellarabi, Brandt on the wings.

some post-match reactions:

Julian Weigl: We gave absolutely everything again today, as did the fans. Obviously it's a really great feeling to be able to celebrate together. You want that as often as possible. When I first came to SIGNAL IDUNA PARK five years ago, BVB also beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-0. Back then, Barrios grabbed a brace and Rangelov scored too. To be playing on the pitch myself now and helping the team to get the three points is an awesome feeling.

Jonas Hofmann: It was extremely important to go 1-0 up today, because it resulted in us getting that bit more space. Nevertheless, we knew that Leverkusen play a brutal pressing game. But our second goal knocked the stuffing out of our opponents. And of course, we're all delighted that "Auba" got his goal too.

Roman Bürki: In contrast to the previous matches, there were a few attacks on our goal today. But we dealt with them very well as a team. We always remained focused and consistently believed that we could still clear the ball. At the other end of the pitch, we once again created a lot of chances and are delighted that we were able to convert three of them into goals.

Roger Schmidt: BVB completely deserved to win. You could see why they won their eleventh competitive match on the bounce. We had two very good chances to get an equaliser. That would have been our only way of getting back into the game. Our job is to go out there as a unit and be focused. And I don't think we did that today. (djg)
