88’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “While Dortmund are showing great composure in seeing out the match, their fans are already starting to sing songs about their next opponent. On Saturday BVB travel to arch rivals FC Schalke 04 in the mother of all Bundesliga derbies.”

85' The match has certainly run its course, but it doesn't stop Fernandinho forcing Roman Weidenfeller into making another save, this time with his feet.

82’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “Everything has calmed down now, but head coach Jürgen Klopp is still making his presence felt on the sidelines despite the fans celebrating in a very relaxed manner.”

79' Marco Reus slaloms his way across the face of Shakhtar's box, but after being thrown off balance by a defenders challenge can't quite direct his resulting shot on target. It's fair to say Dortmund have carved the visitors apart tonight, much to the delights of the home fans in attendance.

76' Roman Weidenfeller is determined to hold onto his clean sheet and makes a superb instinct save to prevent Yaroslav Rakitskiy firing home at the back post from Darijo Srna's corner.

73'Shakhtar have let their heads drop after Dortmund's third goal. The visitors are throwing caution to the wind in an attempt to grab a consolation effort, but are leaving themselves vulnerable to BVB's counter-attacking style of play, as substitute Kevin Großkreutz forces Pyatov to tip his curling shot around the post.

68’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “3-0. It’s over now! The whole stadium are on their feet and chanting “Here’s how BVB react”! What an evening for German football fans!”

63' Mario Götze outmanoeuvres his marker on the edge of the box, but can't find the target from a tight angle. That would have been some goal!

58’GOAL!Dortmund have reacted well to the visitors promising start. Robert Lewandowski stings the palms of Andriy Pyatov, but a mistake by Shakhtar's goalkeeper soon after gifts BVB a third. Ilkay Gündogan's long-range effort proves too hot to handle allowing Jakub Blaszczykowski to pounce on the rebound and put this game beyond doubt.

55’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “Donetsk are creating all the pressure now. Second-half substitute Douglas Costa is trying to swing the game in Shakhtar’s favour. Jürgen Klopp is prowling the sidelines. Is there still something in this game for the Ukrainian side?”

52’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “We’ve already seen the moment of the match. After opening the scoring Felipe Santana ran over to the Dortmund bench as he let Leonardo Bittencourt kiss him on the top of his bald head. A lovely moment! Furthermore, Santana responds to recent criticism for playing in Hummels stead in the perfect possible way.”

50'Shakhtar have benefitted from the substitution as the new man Douglas Costa twice goes close to reducing the arrears without truly testing Roman Weidenfeller.

SECOND HALF Both sides make changes during the break as Sebastian Kehl replaces Sven Bender, who picked up a knock in the first half. Meanwhile, Douglas Costa comes on in place of the ineffective Taison for the visitors.

HALF-TIMEDortmund have one foot in the Champions League quarter finals after a stunning first-half performance sees them take a two-goal lead in at the break thanks to goals from Felipe Santana and Mario Götze.

41'Dortmund break forward menacingly in the three-on-two situation, but in delaying his shot, Lewandowski allows Hübschman to recover his position and make the all-important block.

40’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “There’s a party atmosphere in the stadium and an extreme sense of relief as well. The Dortmund fans are in a celebratory mood, regularly giving their players a standing ovation. Meanwhile, the Shakhtar fans have packed away their flags, for the time being at least.”

37’GOAL!Dortmund deservedly extend their lead as Mario Götze clips Robert Lewandowski’s cross into the far corner to put the hosts in complete control of this second leg.

35'Dortmund are setting the tone for the first half of this Round of 16 tie and look to be striking up a real rhythm.

30'GOAL! Mario Götze sees his shot blocked behind for a corner, but from the resulting set-piece Felipe Santana rises highest at the front post to power a header into the back of the net. It’s the Brazilian’s first ever Champions League goal and one Mats Hummels would have been proud of.

25’: With the lion's share of possession on their side, Dortmund should be ahead. However, after being released out wide Lukasz Piszczek wasted the opportunity in front of goal by unselfishly trying to pick out a teammate instead of going for goal himself as Shakhtar are able to franticly clear their lines.

25’:Dortmund are combining to great effect in midfield, yet the speed with which Shakhtar are breaking in transition is a cause for concern for Jürgen Klopp's men

21’: Sven Bender smashes over from long-range, but the signs are there that Dortmund aren't willing to rest on their laurels knowing a goalless draw would see them through.

16’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park:Dortmund are defending with a lot of discipline, despite some nerves creeping in early on. It’s clear to see the respect they have for Shakhtar’s attacking prowess.

14’: Oleksandr Kucher picks up the first booking of the match for a tactical foul on Lewandowski after the Pole had threatened to spin in behind.

11’: Mario Götze's creativity almost leads to Dortmund breaking the deadlock as the German international's reverse pass puts Lewandowski through on goal, but Pyatov was off his line sharply to smother the chance.

9’:Dortmund are creating all the early pressure during the opening exchanges and, though Shakhtar are closing down the space and afforidng the hosts little time on the ball, Robert Lewandowski has already managed to register the first effort of the game.

1’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park:Dortmund’s southern stand is a sea of yellow and black flags waving in the air, but there’s a surprising amount of Shakhtar Donetsk fans with orange flags flying. The Champions League anthem rang around the stadium earlier and the goose bumps are already emerging.

Kick-off - 5 mins: Progress is key for Dortmund, whose only realistic chance of a trophy this season is in Europe’s elite competition.

Kick-off - 10 mins:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: “The Yellow Wall is awash with Yellow and Black scarves and flags as the Dortmund fans belt out “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to add to the already spine-tingling atmosphere in the stadium. There’s an excited, and at the same time optimistic, feeling amongst the BVB fans tonight.”

Kick-off - 20 mins:Dortmund and Robert Lewandowski warmed up for tonight’s encounter with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Hannover 96, but Shakhtar Donetsk went one better by securing a 4-1 win against FC Volyn Lutsk as the Ukrainian league returned to action after a 91-day winter break

Kick-off - 30 mins: After Dortmund head coach referred to tonight’s encounter as the “game of the year” for his side, Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu made the bold prediction that the winner of this Round of 16 tie would reach the final in Wembley on May 25th. While a 0-0 draw would suffice for BVB to reach the quarter finals for the first time since 1997/98, it would be uncharacteristic of these two sides for the encounter to end with neither outfit finding the back of the net.

Kick-off - 40 mins: Only FC Bayern’s midfielders (13) have scored more often in the UEFA Champions League than Shakhtar Donetsk’s (10).

Kick-off - 60 mins: After getting knocked out of the DFB Cup last week, Hummels’ centre-back partner Neven Subotic claimed that anything Dortmund achieved in this year’s Champions League could be considered a “big bonus” during an with bundesliga.com.

Kick-off - 70 mins: However, with Mats Hummels a doubt due to illness, Dortmund will undoubtedly be wary of a Shakhtar Donetsk side, who have scored eight goals on foreign soil in the current campaign.

Kick-off - 80 mins:Dortmund boast a 100 per cent record on home soil in this season’s competition after beating AFC Ajax, Real Madrid CF and Manchester City FC during the group stages, scoring four and conceding just once in the process.

Kick-off - 90 mins: After scoring twice in Donetsk, Dortmund, who are unbeaten in the UEFA Champions League this season, will be confident of going an eighth consecutive match without losing against Ukrainian opposition as they look to clinch their quarter final berth tonight.

Kick-off - 100 mins: There have been doubts throughout the day regarding the availability of Dortmund defender Mats Hummels, who has been labouring under the effects of a flu-like virus.
