Borussia Dortmund will be looking to continue their push towards a maiden league and cup double this season when they host Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

A 4-0 win over Holstein Kiel in the German Cup on Tuesday night means Jurgen Klopp’s side are now just one step away from the final, while their fourth straight victory in the Bundesliga saw them overhaul Bayern Munich at the top of the table.

A successful defence of their title is now in their hands and they will discover only hours after facing Leverkusen who their semi-final opponents in the cup will be.

“We want to be part of one of the biggest highlights in German football,” Mats Hummels told the Westphalian club’s official website.

Dortmund are not the only side still in the hunt to complete the double, two years after Bayern Munich managed that feat for the eighth time in their history.

In fact, Bayern, who trail Dortmund by two points in the Bundesliga, could even complete a treble this season as they build up to their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie with Basle in just under a fortnight’s time.

The Bavarians, who defeated Stuttgart 2-0 to join Dortmund in Saturday night’s draw, host Kaiserslautern on Saturday while fourth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach, who trail the league leaders by three points, are in action on Saturday evening against third-placed Schalke.
