Borussia Dortmund rounded off the season with a 3-1 home win against Bayer Leverkusen, consolidating third place in the Bundesliga.

Another exciting Bundesliga season came to a close for the Black and Yellows on Saturday as they hosted Bayer Leverkusen. Both teams came into the match with most of their business done for the season. No matter the afternoon’s result, both Bayer and Dortmund would be playing in the Europa and Champions Leagues respectively come next season. Dortmund did however control most of the game, and extended their win streak in the league to seven on the trot; a run of form that may have left some fans wondering “what if” Dortmund had displayed at this level of consistency all season long.

Fanciful thoughts notwithstanding, Dortmund’s last month of football has been scintillating to say the least, and the Black and Yellow faithful have much to be proud of and thankful for. On a more sombre note, however, the final game of the season also marked the end of a storied career for Lukasz Piszczek. The former Polish international spent 11 long years with the club, winning the Bundesliga twice and the DFB Pokal three times.  Lets take a closer look at some of the key talking points from this final game of the season for Die Schwarzgelben.
