WATCH: HAALAND: "WE KNEW WE WOULD GET THE CHANCES"
WATCH: SANCHO: "I CAME BACK RARING TO GO"
SORLOTH'S FIRST IN THE BUNDESLIGA!
It's Angelino on the left who curls in a superb cross and Dortmund's defence can't handle it at the back post, with Sorloth smashing home the loose ball in front of goal after his initial effort was saved by Bürki.
INTO THE FINAL MINUTES
Dortmund's job has been done here superbly in the second half but they're not relaxing. The pressing is continuing high up the pitch, forcing mistakes from Leipzig.
LOVING LIFE IN LEIPZIG

Sancho and Reus come off now with their jobs done here in Leipzig, being replaced Tigges and Brandt.
This is sensational football from Dortmund and especially Erling Haaland. Reus plays him in behind the Leipzig defence which Haaland races onto and he takes it around Gulacsi before slotting the ball home. He is unstoppable.
We don't see that often as Sancho and Haaland exchanges pass around the Leipzig box with Haaland set up for a shot, but he's sloppy with his shot and it's easy for Gulacsi to gather.
Such an entertaining second half here in Leipzig and still 10 minutes to go. Dortmund don't look like giving this game up now with Leipzig only having one shot on target so far, but Olmo did strike the post earlier.
Dortmund break with Reus down the left who looks for Haaland in behind, but Upamecano denies him with great defending to nudge him off the ball.
BVB IN CONTROL
This game has burst into life in the second with Dortmund the architects of that. High pressing and fast build-up play has seen them cut through Leipzig time and time again.
SANCHO TO HAALAND = GOAL!
Dortmund in dreamland here as BVB take a two-goal lead. Fantastic dribbling from Haaland who weaves past two or three Leipzig players before finding Sancho on the left. Haaland races into the box and Sancho curls the cross to him at the back post and Haaland leaps high to nod it home.
Zagadou on for Delaney here and he appears to be into the defence which has gone to a three-man backline with Akanji and Hummels.
GAME CHANGING NOW
Here come Leipzig now as Dortmund failed to make the most of their pressure having taken the lead. Leipzig had that chance through Olmo and are looking to keep possession more and more. BVB will want to keep the pressure on at the other end themselves in a game which is rapidly opening up in this second half.
OFF THE POST!
A huge chance at the other end now for Olmo with Leipzig quickly coming back into this. He beautifully sweeps past the Dortmund defence into space in the area before smashing a shot low across goal which beats Bürki, but doesn't beat the post.
OFF THE BAR!
Huge chance for Haaland but he can't beat Gulacsi who makes an incredible save. It's a fantastic pass from Sancho which plays Haaland in on goal and he smashes a shot at goal from close range, but Gulacsi gets a touch on the ball to push it onto the crossbar.

Leipzig making two changes here just after the hour with Klostermann and Sorloth on for Forsberg and Sabitzer.
Dortmund work the ball wide across the Leipzig box and Can is on the left, who finds Guerreiro inside him. A first-time shot curls at goal but it loops over Gulacsi and his net. Dortmund starting this second half superbly.
Fine play again from Dortmund with Reus found by Guerreiro in the box. His touch is a lay off to Sancho, who plays it across further to Haaland who shoots at goal but has his effort blocked. Lovely, speedy interplay from Dortmund.
TWO IN TWO FOR SANCHO!
His second goal of the season in as many games and Dortmund are flying at the start of this second half. Haaland races away in space down the right and spots Reus to his left. Reus superbly flicks the ball to the back post despite being in front of goal, knowing Sancho is in space behind him. One touch to control before the winger places home his shot past Gulacsi!
The tempo of this game is at the highest level at the start of this second half. Dortmund are pressing high and intensely at the start of the second 45, winning the ball back quickly and making life difficult for Leipzig.
CAN HEADS OVER
The Dortmund corner that follows is headed over by Can with Gulacsi looking stranded.
Great start to the second half as Sancho races to the edge of the Leipzig box down the left before playing a through ball for Reus to run onto. His shot is saved by Gulacsi at his near post.
No changes at the break as Dortmund get us back underway here in Leipzig.
We're now into two minutes of added time at the end of this first half.
BVB BATTLING BETTER
OLMO HAS A GO
The first true effort on goal comes from Olmo, who controls Guerreiro's clearance to the edge of the box. He spots Bürki off his line and goes for a lob, but he just gets a bit too much on his effort.
DEFENCE WINNING THE DAY
Just the one shot on goal so far from either side in this game, not for the want of trying. It's just that two of the league's best defences so far this season have been fantastic.
Leipzig's pressing has stopped slightly and Dortmund are making the most of it with more time on the ball. It's been difficult to keep the ball pushing forward still, though, as they look to get Haaland involved.
The first caution of the game is handed to Delaney for a tactical foul on Forsberg in midfield.
FIERCE BATTLE SO FAR

WITSEL OFF INJURED
Emre Can is on in place of Witsel here early in the first half.
The Belgian goes down with a knock to his left foot here. It does not look good for him with what appears to be an Achilles problem.
PRESSING FOR FUN
Superb work from Leipzig who are pressing magnificently as a team so far. A Dortmund counter-attack is broken up by Leipzig's retreating defence.
CAN'T KEEP THE BALL
Dortmund are doing well to keep Leipzig from creating clear-cut chances, but they are making unforced errors in possession and giving the ball way too easily when they do win it back. Sancho and Guerreiro the most recent to play stray passes.
A lovely turn from Olmo after being found by Adams sends him into the Dortmund box, but Hummels reads it well and cuts out the chance before it becomes too dangerous.
HAALAND LOOKING EAGER
The Dortmund No.9 frustrated by a late through ball played to him, which in the end saw him called offside. He's finding space to run in behind the Leipzig defence so far but no opportunities have come up for the perfect pass to be played.
LEIPZIG ON TOP
The home side controlling the pace of this game with possession, putting some pressure on the Dortmund defence to stay concentrated so far.
Leipzig causing some confusion in the Dortmund defence as Meunier fails to react to a ball over the top. Angelino reaches it and cuts it back into the middle, but a shot is blocked and the away side can clear.
SANCHO IN THE MIDDLE
The winger is drifting centrally so far, playing right behind Haaland with Reus and Reyna either side of him. We're used to seeing him on the wing, of course.
Plenty of midfield battling early on between Witsel-Delaney and Sabitzer-Haidara. Leipzig enjoying most of the early possession, with Haaland looking to be released over the top.
HERE WE GO!
The home side get us underway in Leipzig...
The players are making their way out at the Red Bull Arena for this blockbuster Saturday night fixture. Let the show begin!
LEIPZIG'S WALL OF A DEFENCE
Nagelsmann's team have recorded four Bundesliga clean sheets in a row. Five would equal their club record of October-November 2018, under former coach and sporting director, Ralf Rangnick.
Haaland scored 11 times across his first 13 Bundesliga appearances. All told, he has struck 33 times in as many German top-flight matches. He also bagged a brace in this fixture just last season.
