Bayer Leverkusen keeper Lukas Hradecky has set sights on a win over Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.

Dortmund will be looking to get back on track after their disappointing 1-3 loss to Union Berlin on Matchday 3, but Hradecky is eager to make amends for Leverkusen's 2-3 defeat in Dortmund last season.

"We played well there last season, and we are in front of them in the table. From my point of view, it's a good time to face Dortmund. We have seven points, and everyone remembers how we played there last time. Back then, we made a few individual mistakes, and Dortmund were effective. It will be all about the small things again this time. I don't think Dortmund are as far ahead of us as they maybe were last season," Hradecky said in an interview with Kicker and added:

"It's a very important game. We can send a signal that we belong to the top four. Dortmund need to bounce back after the Union game. It will be a red-hot game.

"I haven't won over Dortmund with Leverkusen yet, but managed to beat them at home with Frankfurt at least. It's time for the first win in Dortmund," the Finnish keeper underlined.

Leverkusen haven't beaten Dortmund away from home since August 2014 when goals from Karim Bellarabi and Stefan Kiessling secured 'Die Werkself' a 2-0 victory.
