Gladbacbh vs Leverkusen, Wolfsburg vs Dortmund feature in top 23 events to watch until May 24, 2020

Bundesliga Matchday 27 welcomes two top-six showdowns in Gladbach vs Leverkusen, Wolfsburg vs Dortmund

The Bundesliga made its triumphant return last weekend and now carries on with Matchday 27, which kicks off with the Berlin Derby on Friday between Union and Hertha. However, the two standout fixtures take place on Saturday, which includes Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen. The league's third-placed side welcome the fifth-placed team in a crucial fixture amid the heated top-four race. If Havertz and Co. win this weekend, they could leapfrog Gladbach into third -- RB Leipzig would need to suffer another slip-up in order for that to occur -- as Die Werkself are only two points behind their weekend opponents. As for Marco Rose's side, they could move into the second spot as Dortmund face a tricky fixture themselves. A lot is on the line in this tie!

Here's how close the top-four race is in the Bundesliga

The other key clash is Dortmund's trip to Wolfsburg. Favre's men ushered in the return of the Bundesliga with a 4-0 win over Schalke and will be keen on another victory. However, Die Wölfe are no pushovers and having climbed into the sixth and final Europa League spot, they should provide a stern test to the in-form Haaland and Co.
