The top match for the U14s away to second-placed Borussia Dortmund was closer than the result suggests. "Above all, it was an evenly balanced game in the first half played at a top level," praise coach Mirko Casper. The Leverkusen lads made the livelier start and went ahead from a corner through Aaron Tshimuanga on 21 minutes. Ben Klefisch rounded off a great solo run by setting up Emrehan Gedikli to make it 2-0 on 37 minutes.

On the back of the 2-0 lead, the U14s played with complete freedom in the second half and their quality on the pitch came through. Another goal from Tshimuanga (47') and a brace from Gedikli (49', 80') rounded off the scoring produce a 5-0 victory. "A great performance in a great game," declared Casper his team have extended their lead over Dortmund.
