He's holding the back of his hamstring here and is coming off in the final minutes for Zagadou.
OPEN GAME NOW!
Bremen are pressing Dortmund deep into their own half but are leaving space for the counter if Dortmund can make one work. We could see more goals here in the final minutes.
REUS AT THE SECOND ATTEMPT!
Pavlenka dives the right way and saves superbly from Reus with one hand. The ball spins up and back towards his goal, though, and Reus follows it up to smash the ball home.
Pavlenka brings down Akanji and BVB have a spot-kick. The Bremen goalkeeper drops a cross and Akanji beats him to it before being brought down.
A LATE WINNER?
Dortmund look the most likely and Brandt is on for Bellingham in an attacking move.
Morey's cross is met by Reus and head at the near post but Pavlenka produces a big save to keep that one out!
Dortmund have enjoyed the vast majority of possession in the second half but Bremen are looking to work with the counter-attack when they can. BVB may have had most of the ball but they've struggled to work clear-cut chances.
A lovely one-two between Guerreiro and Bellingham sends Guerreiro into the Bremen box. He plays across to Moukoko who doesn't go for a shot first-time and Toprak recovers to clear.
Fresh legs on for Bremen with Bittencourt and Woltemade on in place of Sargent and Möhwald.
BREMEN OUTRUNNING DORTMUND
Distance run (km)
NOT FAR AWAY
Reyna's dribbling is a delight to watch once again but his decision-making lets him down once more. He's late to decide whether to pass or shoot and his chance is blocked. Guerreiro crosses to Moukoko but he fouls Toprak in the Bremen penalty area.
A second Dortmund player cautioned for a foul on Osako, from Witsel.
SANCHO GOAL RULED OUT
The Englishman has the ball in the Bremen net but it's ruled out for offside. It was fellow Englishman Bellingham who beautifully played him in with a backheel flick, but Sancho was offside when that pass was played.

The Bremen defender brings down Bellingham and is the first Bremen player cautioned.
CHANCE FOR WERDER
Augustinsson's cross from the left reaches the back post where Gebre Selassie rises above Guerreiro. He heads at goal, but Bürki holds onto this one.
BIG CHANCE FOR MOUKOKO!
Akanji's fantastic pass in behind is raced onto by Reus, who cuts the ball back across goal just in front of the byline. Pavlenka and Toprak can't clear it and Moukoko meets it at full-stretch but he can't control his effort and it slices wide.
REYNA RUNNING AGAIN
The USMNT midfield shows tidy feet to dribble past a defender to the edge of the Bremen box. He can't decide to pass or shoot though and the ball is blocked into the path of Guerreiro in the end, but he's offside.
The second half begins without a change for either side during half-time.
AUGUSTINSSON SO CLOSE!
The left-back's initial cross is blocked by Morey and the ball falls back to him. He curls a shot at goal with his right foot but Bürki is equal to it with a save at full-stretch to his left.
Akanji is somehow kept out by Pavlenka. Reus swings in a free-kick and the Dortmund defender is all alone as he stretches out a leg to poke the ball goalward. He reaches it, but Pavlenka reacts fantastically to beat the ball away.
LOOKING FOR CALM
For the first time Dortmund are looking to keep the ball for an extended spell here. Up to know, the play had been immediately forced forward to spring a surprise on Bremen. Now it's time for patience.
The Dortmund captain is cautioned for a foul on Möhwald in midfield.
OFF THE POST!
So close to a second goal and it would have been an own goal. A cross from the right flank beats everyone in the box and comes to Groß in front of his own goal. He looks to play the ball behind but his pass instead strikes the post and comes back out. Almost a big blunder there!
REYNA FIRES OVER
A corner hit low to the edge of the box is hit by Reyna, but on the bounce it's a tough one for him to control and it flies over the bar.

A fantastic team goal from the home side gets them level. Bremen looked for patience on the ball and provided it. Sargent is onto Akanji's poor touch and Bremen build from the right. Eggestein lays it off to Möhwald on the edge and he smashes a low shot past Bürki.
BREMEN LOOKING FOR THE BALL
The home side have struggled to keep possession for long periods since Dortmund's opener. The away side are pressing high across the pitch and leaving little room for a second thought for the Bremen players.
Dortmund far less concerned in keeping possession and far more concerned in interplay through midfield and fast build-up play.

EARLY ATTACK MODE FOR BVB
GIO HAS A GO
Dortmund break quickly through the middle with Reus, who finds Reyna to his left. He has Sancho, Moukoko and Reus all in support but takes a shot himself. It's a tame one which Pavlenka holds onto with ease.
The visitors have been far more direct in getting the ball forward here than in recent weeks. Possession appears less key, while getting the likes of Sancho, Reyna and Reus on the ball appears to be the order of the day.
The perfect start for Dortmund under Edin Terzic. Reyna keeps a cross alive at the back post before finding Sancho in the middle. His first-time shot is blocked but Guerreiro gets on the rebound in front of goal to dink the ball over Pavlenka for the lead.
Bremen holding their own so far and getting forward, too, earning the first corner of the game.
We were so closing to seeing Moukoko become the youngest scorer in Bundesliga history. Reyna is sent away down the left and beats Gebre Selassie for pace before cutting the ball across goal. Moukoko slides in but misses the ball by inches. What a start that would have been!
FIRST GO AT GOAL
Möhwald has the first shot on goal of the game inside 20 seconds but sends this one over the Dortmund crossbar. The home side pressing high up the pitch in these opening minutes, putting BVB under pressure straight away.
HERE WE GO!
The home side get us underway for what should be a massively interesting game.
Goalkeeper Roman Bürki makes his 200th Bundesliga appearance in this match (34 for Freiburg, 166 for BVB), while Axel Witsel makes his 100th league outing for the club.
BREMEN LOOKING TO SARGENT
The hosts have been deprived of Füllkrug, Rashica, and Selke to injury, their trio of senior attacking players. That has been a factor in them scoring just 14 times this term - only the bottom four teams in the table have scored fewer. As such, responsibility falls to USA international Sargent and Japanese playmaker Osako here as they look for a win that would extend the gap above the relegation places to seven points.
CAN DORTMUND BOUNCE BACK?
The 5-1 home defeat to Stuttgart on Saturday spelled the end of Lucien Favre's time as head coach. That result left BVB fifth in the standings, six points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen, so they need to win again here id they're to avoid losing further ground. It's a big moment for Terzic, Dortmund's 38-year-old interim head coach, who's taking charge of a senior side for the first time ever.

TWO CHANGES FROM KOHFELDT
Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt has made just two alterations to his side following their 2-0 defeat to RB Leipzig on Saturday: Mbom and Osako start in place of Schmid and Bittencourt, who both drop to the bench.
FIRST START FOR MOUKOKO
Less than a month after making his Bundesliga debut the day after turning 16, Youssoufa Moukoko is in the Dortmund starting line-up for the first time ever. Erling Haaland is out injured, after all, and new interim coach Edin Terzic makes a bold move on his first game in charge. That is the only change to the side that lost 5-1 to Stuttgart at the weekend, with Emre Can dropping to the bench.
