90' + 4'

IT'S ALL OVER!

Dortmund draw 2-2 for a third successive league game, having once again led 2-1. But full credit must go to Freiburg here for a bold second-half display in taking the game to their visitors. A huge result for the Black Forest club, who remain two points ahead of BVB.

STOPPAGE TIME

We're in the send of three minutes of added time. Will there be a late winner?
90'

FREIBURG EQUALISE!

Grifo brings a high ball from the right down at the back post. The angle is too tight to shoot so he just smashes a low ball across the face of goal, in hope rather than expectation. It clips Akanji's ankle and goes in!
90'

Manuel Akanji

OWN GOAL!

FAVRE GOES DEFENSIVE

The Dortmund boss reacts to Freiburg's tactical changes by making one of his own. He brings on Schmelzer, a defender, for Brandt.

ANOTHER ATTACKING CHANGE

Attacking midfielder Vincenzo Grifo takes to the field as Freiburg have one last throw of the dice in their bid for an equaliser.

CAN DORTMUND HOLD ON?

BVB were 2-1 up against Frankfurt on Matchday 5 and against Bremen on Matchday 6, but conceded an equaliser each time to draw both games 2-2. Will history repeat itself here?
76'

FREIBURG GOING FOR IT

Freiburg coach Christian Streich has made his intentions clear by bringing on Nils Petersen to partner Waldschmidt up front. The hosts aren't going to give up here.

DORTMUND'S 100TH BUNDESLIGA GOAL UNDER FAVRE

Hakimi's strike was a milestone goal for BVB, as it was the 100th they have scored in the league under Favre. They've needed just 41 games to get to that tally.
72'

HALF CHANCE FOR HABERER

A powerful run down the left from Günter, who's been very good today, and he pings a deep cross into the Dortmund box, where's he's spotted Haberer unmarked. It's just slightly behind his teammate, but Haberer does well to get a header away that loops just over the bar.
68'

HAKIMI SCORES AGAIN!

The Moroccan, who was on target twice in the UEFA Champions League during the week, gets on the scoresheet again to restore his side's lead. Sancho spies him wide on the right and the 20-year-old gets to the byline before cutting inside past Günter and smashing in with his left foot from close range!
68'
<- Roland Sallai
-> Lucas Höler

SANCHO FOR HAZARD

It's a like-for-like substitution from Favre as he looks to inject fresh impetus into his side's attack.
63'
<- Jadon Sancho
-> Thorgan Hazard
59'

HOME SWEET HOME FOR WALDSCHMIDT

The Freiburg forward has now scored 10 of his 13 Bundesliga goals on home turf. His effort was also the Black Forest club's first at home to BVB in 650 minutes of play; their last goal aagainst Dortmund at the Schwarzwald-Stadion was by Jan Rosenthal in December 2011.
58'

SANCHO WARMING UP

Dortmund boss Lucien Favre reacts to Freiburg's goal by sending Jadon Sancho to warm up. The England international will be coming on imminently.
55'

STUNNING FROM WALDSCHMIDT

Freiburg's strong start to the half pays off as Waldschmidt fires them level. A lovely, flowing move down the right wing ends as Schmid plays the ball inside to Waldschmidt. He drops a shoulder and jinks past Akanji onto his stronger left foot before smashing an unstoppable shot past Bürki into the bottom corner. The hosts are level, and deservedly so.
55'

Gian-Luca Waldschmidt

GOAL!

DANGEROUS FROM REUS

Brandt, on the left, spies Reus' run behind Schmid and plays it into his path. The 30-year-old gets to the byline and squares it across the face of goal. It's begging for a touch to be nudged over the line, but there's nobody there for Dortmund and Freiburg can clear.

JUST OVER FROM WALDSCHMIDT

Waldschmidt, who's looked threatening all game, has the first effort on goal of this half. He catches a shot well from the edge of the box but gets too much on it and it whizzes over the bar.
49'

FREIBURG AGGRESSIVE

Freiburg coach Christian Streich must have had strong words with his team during the interval as they have begun the second half with fire in their bellies. They're crunching into tackles, getting forward at pace and attacking with far greater intent now.

UNDER WAY AGAIN

Freiburg get the ball rolling once more at the Schwarzwald-Stadion.
Kick-off!

DORTMUND LEAD, FREIBURG STILL IN IT

The visitors have dominated the ball, having close to 70% possession throughout the first half, and while they're in the lead and have had a handful of promising openings, they haven't had things all their own way. Freiburg have countered with a number of jabs of their own and are looking good on the counter. Günter and Waldschmidt in particular have been dangerous going forward and Dortmund will need to be alert in the second half.
Half-time
45' + 3'

THUNDERING SHOT FROM HAZARD

Hazard receives the ball just outside the Freiburg box following a corner. He cuts onto his left foot and smashes a powerful drive at goal that Schwolow does well to tip over.
45'

WASTED CHANCE

Hakimi is robbed of the ball in midfield and as Freiburg break forward, Hummels is forced into an emergency tackle. Freiburg are given a free-kick about 30-yards out and Schmid looks like he's going to shoot, but Günter takes it instead, looking for Waldschmidt at the back post. He over hits it though, and the ball bounces out for a goal kick.

SO CLOSE FROM WALDSCHMIDT!

Günter outmuscles Hakimi wide on the Freiburg left and immediately sprints forward. He gets to the edge of the Dortmund box and squares it to Waldschmidt, who unleashes a brilliant first-time shot that whistles into the side netting.
37'

HEINTZ DOWN

The defender clutches his face after heading a Dortmund free-kick clear, having also taken a boot to the nose from teammate Höler. It'll take more than that to keep him down, though, and after a brief pause for treatment he's up and running again.
33'

BRANDT MUST MAKE IT 2-0!

Delightful one-touch passing from Dortmund around the Freiburg area and eventually Götze spies Brandt's run behind the defence. He plays a brilliant chip towards the back post and finds Brandt, who is completely unmarked with only Schwolow to beat. Surely he must score... but he can't keep his header down and it sails over the bar. The Germany international holds his head in disbelief.
31'

FREIBURG TRYING TO COUNTER

A Dortmund attack breaks down as Brandt and Reus are crowded out on the edge of the Freiburg box. The hosts immediately spring into life and try to launch a counter-attack, but although Günter darts into space wide on the left he is forced to go backwards and the move breaks down.
26'

INCHES WIDE FROM GÜNTER

Freiburg give Dortmund a scare as Waldschmidt does superbly to stretch and keep the ball going out for a goal kick. It comes back to Günter, wide on the left-hand side of the BVB area, and he instantly drills a low shot towards the far post that fizzes just wide.
25'

HOME FROM HOME FOR WITSEL

The 30-year-old was also on target in Dortmund's last away game in the Bundesliga, a match that ultimately ended 2-2 in Frankfurt.
20'

WITSEL BREAKS THE DEADLOCK!

What a goal this is! A corner is swung in from the right and it finds the unmarked Witsel at the back post, near the edge of the Freiburg area. The Belgium international watches it all the way and smashes a first-time volley past Schwolow!
20'

Axel Witsel

GOAL!

CHANCE FOR WALDSCHMIDT!

Heintz dinks a ball forward and Waldschmidt is suddenly all alone. He dribbles into the box, in the inside-left channel, but goes for power over precision and blazes the ball over the bar with only Bürki to beat.
16'

CHANCE FOR BRANDT!

The Dortmund substitute has the first chance of the game, ghosting in behind Schmid to meet a lofted diagonal ball at the back post. He takes it on the volley but doesn't make a clean connection and it bobbles harmlessly wide!
15'

BVB RESHUFFLE

Piszczek's injury means Hakimi will drop back to right-back, allowing Brandt to play in his natural position in attacking midfield.
14'
<- Julian Brandt
-> Lukasz Piszczek
13'

PISZCZEK DOWN

The veteran Dortmund right-back remains prone on the pitch, clutching his right thigh. The medical team come on, but he doesn't look like he'll be able to continue. Julian Brandt is sent to warm up.
9'

WELL-ORGANISED HOSTS

Dortmund have seen more of the ball so far but haven't been able to make any inroads behind the Freiburg defence, which looks very well drilled. There are clear lines of 5 at the back and 4 in midfield whenever the home side are defending and they're not giving their visitors any space to work in.
6'

WHERE'S HAKIMI PLAYING?

The 20-year-old, who normally operates either at right-back or left-back, put in a star turn on the left wing in the Champions League on Wednesday. From the looks of things so far, the Morocco international is playing in attacking midfield once again, only this time on the right.
3'

HIGH PRESS FROM FREIBURG

Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki looks momentarily confused as he attempts to take a goal kick, as four Freiburg players are converged on the edge of his penalty area, completely blocking off his passing channels. In the end, he punts it long into midfield. Dortmund win the ball, but it's inidicative that the hosts will not be giving BVB any room to work in today.

AND WERE OFF!

Dortmund get the ball rolling in Freiburg!
Kick-off!

HANDSHAKES DONE...

... so we'll be under way very shortly!

CLEAN SHEET ON THE CARDS?

BVB have not conceded a single goal on their last five visits to the Schwarzwaldstadion, recording four wins, 11 goals and a draw in that time.

HISTORY ON DORTMUNDS SIDE

These sides have met 41 times previously, during which time Freiburg have managed just four wins and 10 draws. Dortmund, on the other hand, have emerged victorious on 27 occasions, including in the teams' most recent encounter, a 4-0 away win in April this year.

FORM

Freiburg are the Bundesliga's surprise package so far this season, and go into today's game in third place thanks to a run of four wins, one draw and one defeat from their opening six matches. Dortmund are two points worse off than their hosts in eighth, having drawn their last two league assignments in succession.

MORE ON FREIBURG

Germany U21 international Luca Waldschmidt gets the nod up front in place of Nils Petersen, after coming off the bench to score a stunning late winner against Fortuna Düsseldorf last time out. Captain Mike Frantz missed the Düsseldorf game with a groin problem, so Amir Abrashi fills in in midfield once again.

MORE ON DORTMUND

Jadon Sancho and Julian Brandt drop to the Dortmund bench, following the exertions of the midweek UEFA Champions League win away to Slavia Prague. Portugal international Raphael Guerreiro comes into the midfield, while Mario Götze is restored in the lone striker's role in place of injured top scorer Paco Alcacer.
