HE DOES IT AGAIN!

Paco Alcacer does the business and smashes home a free-kick to send the Signal Iduna Park into hysteria. What an incredible moment which takes Dortmund top of the Bundesliga by two points as it stands.

CHANCE HERE...

A free-kick on the edge of the Wolfsburg box here for Dortmund. Surely Alcacer will take this...
83'

SOMETHING SPECIAL TO WIN IT?

At the moment, neither sides look likely to score here but it could be a moment of magic or a mistake in defence that gives us a result. 
81'
<- Daniel Ginczek
-> Admir Mehmedi
81'
<- Mahmoud Dahoud
-> Mario Götze
78'

WEGHORST WITHIN INCHES

Roussillon's superb low cross goes across the face of Bürki's goal, but is deflected beyond the reach of Weghorst at the back post for Dortmund to breathe again.
74'
<- Jacob Bruun Larsen
-> Achraf Hakimi
74'

HAKIMI DOWN

It looks like Hakimi will now no longer be able to continue due to a foot injury, and Bruun Larsen comes on in his place. 
72'

CASTEELS SAVES WELL

Guerreiro collects the ball that runs loose on the edge of the Wolfsburg box from Delaney, and he decides to shoot at goal with a deflection on the way. Casteels back-tracks and handles it well in the end.
71'

DORTMUND ON TOP, BUT LACKING INVENTION

Plenty of possession again in the second half for the home side, but a lack of creative edge in attack is proving their downfall. Without Reus, Dortmund are struggling to open up the game to get chances on goal. 
68'

GUERREIRO'S FREE-KICK...

He'll be disappointed with a great chance to really test Casteels from the edge of the Wolfsburg box. He curls his free-kick over the wall, but it's tame and is easy for the Belgian goalkeeper to handle.
68'
<- Renato Steffen
-> Felix Klaus
62'

SANCHO SO CLOSE!

Fantastic ball from Delaney from the middle of the park finds Sancho in space on the right. He's closed down by Arnold, but gets a shot away at the near post which forces an equally good save from Casteels. Sancho looks like he'll be the key to a Dortmund win today if they get it.
56'

SLICK FROM SANCHO

Who controls a header from Zagadou before flicking the ball over the head of Mehmedi and playing Götze in behind. He reaches the byline and looks for a low cross across the face of goal, but Casteels is positioned well to grab it.
51'

WOLFSBURG STARTING WELL

The Wolves are in control of the ball here and keeping it in the Dortmund half, as well. A half chance for Guilavgoui with a shot from distance in an otherwise slow start to the second half so far.
49'
<- Achraf Hakimi
-> Abdou Diallo
48'

DIALLO INJURED

The Frenchman has gone down with an injury and Achraf Hakimi is coming on in his place.
45'

BACK UNDERWAY

The second half is underway in Dortmund with the home side kicking towards their Yellow Wall.
Kick-off!

DORTMUND FRUSTRATED BY STRONG WOLFSBURG

The home side have controlled the majority of the possession, but Wolfsburg's defence has allowed few chances on Casteels' goal. Guerreiro has been coming into the centre of the pitch leaving Wolf isolated on the right, and so most of the forward play from Dortmund has come through Sancho on the other side. We're still waiting for that magic, game-winning moment from either side. 
Half-time
42'

ZAGADOU GOES CLOSE AGAIN

The Frenchman is once again on the end of a Guerreiro set-piece, and this time has a free header in front of goal! But the defender fluffs his lines and mistimes his header, sending it over the Wolfsburg crossbar.
35'

DORTMUND NOW ON TOP

A couple of corners in a row and possession in the Wolfsburg box is taking Dortmund back into control of this game. Can they make the most of it and take the lead before the break?
29'

WEGHORST FORCES A STUNNING SAVE

The Dutchman cuts inside from the left corner of the box and curls a strike at goal, which is deflected on the way. But Bürki pulls out a stunnng save to his left to palm the ball around his far post.
27'

WOLFSBURG STANDING FIRM

Koen Casteels has had nothing to do so far and it has not been for the want of trying from Dortmund. Wolfsburg's defence has been superb, while they've dominated the possesion in recent minutes.
22'

ARNOLD GOES CLOSE

Mehmedi whips in a teasing cross into the Dortmund box and Diallo is forced to track Arnold and make a vital block as the ball bounced towards goal, and in the end it is cleared.
19'

FIRST BVB CHANCE

Lovely play from Guerreiro who tricks his way past the Wolfsburg defence before finding Götze. The German then curls in a low cross to Alcacer with a defender on his back. He flicks the ball towards goal, but it curls just over Casteels' crossbar.
17'
substitutesMaximilian Arnold
14'

BOTH SIDES LOOKING CONFIDENT

While Dortmund are looking their usual comfortable selves in possession, Wolfsburg are also showing no fear in their place. Defending in a compact and mature manner before breaking well in possession. Both teams are set-up well here, and it's going to be fascinating to see how they break each other down.
8'

ZAGADOU HEADS WIDE

The Frenchman is able to reach Guerreiro's looping free-kick into the box, but he has to stretch to do so and can't quite get the right connection on his header which drifts just wide.
7'

A GOAL IN FREIBURG...

Lucas Höler has Freiburg ahead against Bayern Munich as a roar goes around the Signal Iduna Park. Motivation for the Dortmund players as the noise goes up a notch here. Both sides starting well, but neither have had a chance on goal so far.

UNDERWAY IN DORTMUND!

The sun is shining brightly and the atmosphere is bouncing as we get underway. Sancho starts on the left wing for Dortmund, Guerreiro on the right.
Kick-off!

CHOREO IN DORTMUND

"As a child I came with my father - like he was with his before" - the Dortmund fans salute to their traditions and the ways of being a Dortmund fan with an impressive choreo.

IN-FORM WOUT AND WOLVES

Dutchman Weghorst had a hand in all five goals as Wolfsburg's beat Fortuna Düsseldorf 5-2 last time out. He is the first player to manage that since Dortmund's Aubameyang against Hamburg way back in November 2016, can he make the same impact today?

CAPTAIN AKANJI FOR THE FIRST TIME

Swiss defender Manuel Akanji will lead out the Dortmund team for the first time this afternoon in Reus' abscence. 

LAST TIME BEFORE DER KLASSIKER

Bayern Munich are in Freiburg today with just one game to come before next weekend's mouth-watering Der Klassiker between the two sides. Dortmund are unbeaten at home in the Bundesliga this season - the only team with that record - while Wolfsburg don't lay down easily. The Wolves have won nine points from losing positions this season.

REUS OUT ON COMPASSIONATE LEAVE

The Borussia Dortmund captain is not involved today with his girlfriend due to give birth. In his absence, Mario Götze drops into the No.10 role and Paco Alcacer starts up front.
