All matches

WHAT A GAME!

In the end, a fair draw considering how the game went. Both sides will feel they could've got more from that - especially Dortmund after a largely dominant second half - but in the end Kamada's shot which was put into his own net by Delaney is enough the bring the game level. Sancho and Alcacer were sacrificed early - the first time this season for Sancho - and BVB can't hold on.

ADDED TIME!

We're into three minutes of added time now. We will be seeing more drama before the end!?
88'

FRANKFURT LEVEL AGAIN!

This will likely be updated to an own-goal from Thomas Delaney, but Kamada and Frankfurt won't care. The ball drops to the back post and Hinteregger, who smashes it across the face of goal. At the back post is Kamada, who slides the ball towards goal and watches it be inadvertidely poked into his own net by Delaney...

DORTMUND STANDING FIRM

It's all Frankfurt now in these final minutes, with an all-out attack on the go for an equaliser. Until now, Dortmund have been able to hold off the home side's efforts.

SILVA AGAIN!

Huge chance for the loanee who heads a beautiful cross from Durm on the right wing towards goal, but it just goes narrowly past Bürki's near post. Both sides creating good chances here. Next goal is, of course, crucial.

TWO BIG CHANCES FOR REUS

Götze finds his partner-in-crime twice in the space of a few seconds. Firstly with a dinked cross from the right which Reus volleys at goal, but sees blocked by the Frankfurt defence. The ball comes back to Götze quickly though and he finds Reus with a pass along the ground, which Reus hits tamely towards goal and Trapp can gather easily.

FRANKFURT PILING ON THE PRESSURE

SANCHO GOES OFF WITH ANOTHER RECORD

With his 16th Bundesliga goal, Jadon Sancho has become the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach this mark - ahead of Horst Köppel.

KOSTIC FIRES ONE OVER

A cross from the right towards Paciencia is deflected to the back post and Kostic. He takes a touch and fires a shot at goal, but can't keep it down.
70'

JUST WIDE FROM HAZARD

Great chance to put Dortmund two goals ahead as Reus sends Hazard in behind towards the left side of the Frankfurt box. He goes for a first-time shot across goal on his left foot, and just curls it past Trapp's far post.
69'

KAMADA ON THE BREAK

The Japanese attacking midfielder is away down the left with defenders chasing. He cuts inside to shoot on his favoured right foot but Bürki is able to hold onto it.
67'
<- Daichi Kamada
-> Dominik Kohr

SANCHO POKES IT HOME!

Guerreiro's free-kick on the edge of the Frankfurt box is deflected to Witsel. He goes for goal but slices his effort across the box towards the back post where Sancho is stood onside. He duly smashes the ball into an empty net with Trapp stranded to restore Dortmund's lead.

PACO AND WITSEL COME CLOSE

A great cross from Guerreiro goes across the face of goal just asking to be poked into the Frankfurt net. Alcacer can't reach it with a header and Witsel misses it by inches on the stretch...
63'
<- Dan-Axel Zagadou
-> Mats Hummels
63'

HUMMELS INJURED

Dortmund's centre-back looks like he has an injury to his back. He's replaced by Zagadou.
58'

FLUFFING CHANCES

Another opportunity for Dortmund goes begging with Sancho whipping in a cross. Hummels challenges but the ball drops to Witsel, who strikes at goal. It's sliced and is headed on by Hummels, but not on target. Plenty of half chances already for BVB.
54'

ALCACER WITH A SHOT...

You'd expect the Spaniard to so much better there. He gets the ball from Reus with space ahead of him 20 yards from goal. He takes aim for the far top corner, but skews his shot high and wide of the target. Not been the best game from Alcacer so far today.
50'

START AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON

A great start to this second half in Frankfurt with both teams pushing the agenda. Durm has been fantastic early on, working his socks off down the right wing. Sancho will still be kicking himself to have not taken that chance minutes ago.
47'

SANCHO WITH A BIG CHANCE

The Dortmund winger is thwarted by Trapp after the ball runs loose to him in the Frankfurt box. He's one-on-one, but can't beat the Frankfurt No.1 with his shot.
46'

BACK UNDERWAY

No changes at the break as we come out for the second half.
Kick-off!

FRANKFURT LEVEL BEFORE THE BREAK

Technically speaking, Frankfurt have still not had a shot on target this game despite scoring. Silva's shot hitting the post before going in just before the break, a goal from nothing to make this a real game in the second half. Dortmund had controlled the ball and the game from the get-go, and scored with one of their few chances as well. A nervy affair, but it should open up more in this second half.
Half-time
44'

SILVA'S FIRST BUNDESLIGA GOAL!

A goal from nothing and Frankfurt are crucially level before the break. A triangle of passes on the right wing actually sees the ball run loose towards the byline, and Sow chases it. He cuts the ball back into the box and Silva provides an outstanding finish, hitting the ball off the near post and into the net.
43'

André Silva

SILVA AGAIN...

The Portuguese striker leaps high to meet another cross into the box from the right, but his effort goes high over the crossbar this time. Frankfurt struggling to create a clear-cut chance so far, and haven't had a shot on target.
34'

SILVA HEADS WIDE

A lovely cross from Sow is headed towards goal by Silva with Paciencia right behind him trying to get involved. It might have had more of a chance of going in had Silva left it for his fellow countryman.

HAKIMI SHOT SAVED

The right back is forward on one of his big forward runs. He gets the ball in the box and takes a quick shot at goal, but Trapp is equal to it this time.
24'

BVB HAPPY IN POSSESSION...

63 per cent of the ball has been Dortmund's so far, and most of that has been in their own half or in midfield. Alcacer has only had 10 touches so far, while Reus has only had 6.
20'

SANCHO ON THE LEFT...

The teenager is currently operating from the left wing, wth Hazard on Sancho's preferred right wing. Both have started the game brightly and are causing the Frankfurt defence problems.
14'

RAPID TEMPO TO THIS ONE

It's what you get with the likes of Sancho, Hakimi and Kostic on the pitch. But this has been an electric opening to the game. Such a high tempo to both side's play and both are intensely looking to get forward and attack. Told you it would be a fun one...
12'

HAKIMI ON THE BREAK

The full-back is sent away on the break and reaches the Frankfurt box in no time down the right. He looks for Sancho just to his left, but the ball is blocked by the Frankfurt defence.
11'

WITSEL SMASHES BVB IN FRONT

Sancho sends Hakimi away down the right and the full-back returns the pace to Sancho whose shot is parried by Trapp. It falls to Hazard, who looks up to spot the run of Witsel into the Frankfurt box and finds him with a nice pass. Witsel laces the ball into the bottom corner with venom to give BVB the lead.
11'

Axel Witsel

GOAL!

ALL DOWN THE LEFT FOR FRANKFURT

Kostic is the key man once again for Frankfurt early on. All of Frankfurt's attacking play in these opening 10 minutes has come down his side of the pitch, with Silva helping him out by drifting wide as well. Hakimi has his work cut out.

BOTH SIDES STARTING WELL

Silva and Kostic getting on the ball plenty early on here, as well as Sancho for Dortmund. No chances on goal yet but plenty of movement in attack that shows we're in for some action.

WHAT AN ATMOSPHERE

The noise from the home support and the packed away end of Dortmund fans are making some noise here at the Commerzbank-Arena. We're moments away from kick-off.

TWO DAYS DIFFERENCE OF REST

As the midweek European fixtures got underway this week, Borussia Dortmund enjoyed two more days of rest than their hosts today. BVB hosted Barcelona in a 0-0 draw on Tuesday, while Frankfurt went down 0-3 at home to Arsenal on Thursday. It will be interesting to see if the extra days of rest work to Dortmund's advantage.

EUROPEAN ASSIST KING SANCHO

Jadon Sancho starts again today, as you'd expect. The Englishman has record 11 assists in 2019, more than any other player in Europe's top five leagues. He's also recorded more assists than any player since the start of last season. If he can be on the ball again today, Dortmund can look at returning to second ahead of Bayern and behind Leipzig.

NO NEED TO CHANGE

Lucien Favre names the same team for the third game in succession this week, and it’s been an impressive eight days for Dortmund after they thrashed Leverkusen 4-0 on Saturday before dominating Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday. While form is no question, it could be interesting to see how the energy levels fare today.

LIGHT EINTRACHT ROTATION

Adi Hütter brings in three new faces from Thursday’s Europa League defeat to Arsenal. Captain David Abraham is rested so Almamy Toure comes into defence. Erik Durm replaces Danny da Costa at right wing-back, while top scorer Goncalo Paciencia returns up front alongside compatriot Andre Silva. Bas Dost drops to the bench.
