WATCH: AKANJI: "IT WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH"
Gikiewicz's goal kick is a poor one and Haaland meets it. The ball runs loose into the Augsburg box and Haaland and Gikiewicz meet in a challenge for it, but luckily the Augsburg defence comes to their 'keeper's aid to clear the ball.
We're now into four minutes of added time.
Sancho races at the Augsburg defence and plays Haaland in with a near-identical pass to the one for Dortmund's third goal against Gladbach last week. This time the keeper is out quickly to block the shot again, with Gikiewicz adding another save to his barnstorming performance today.
REYNA FIRES WIDE
The American works space in the Augsburg box and has options around him but goes for goal himself. It's high, wide and not handsome from his right foot and the home support enjoyed that one. Into the final three minutes plus added time.
Dahoud collects Reyna's pass on the edge of the Augsburg box and takes a shot. It's controlled by Hummels in the area and he gets a quick shot away with a toe-poke but it's straight at Gikiewicz and he makes a great save.
INTO THE FINAL 10...
Dortmund's attack is not clicking at all while Augsburg are enjoying themselves on the counter-attack.
The home side are running further and harder with three points on the line.
TIME TICKING ON
If Dortmund want to get back into this game they'll need to find one goal sooner rather than later as we enter the final 15 minutes. Augsburg looking comfortable at the moment with Dortmund struggling to create goal-scoring chances.
THIRD BOOKING FOR BVB
Witsel joins Haaland and Meunier in the referee's book.
REINIER ON FOR DEBUT
It's almost a five-man attack now for BVB as Reinier joins Sancho and Haaland as the front three with Reus and Reyna in close support, and Brandt joining Witsel in central midfield.
GRUEZO SO CLOSE TO A STUNNER!
The ball bounces kindly to the Augsburg midfielder and he decides to fire a shot at goal from all of 30 yards. It's looping goalward and Bürki is in panic as he back peddles, but the ball lands on the roof of the net to save his blushes.

Dortmund are controlling the ball, but Augsburg's defence is controlling the game. Superb so far to keep BVB at bay.
FEW WAYS THROUGH
More fresh legs on for Augsburg in attack and midfield as Oxford comes on for Khedira, and Finnbogason replaces Niederlechner.
The ball has been with Dortmund for almost the entire time since Augsburg scored their second goal. However Gikiewicz is being kept out of action by the defence in front of him.
Marco Reus and Julian Brandt are on with half an hour to play, replacing Bellingham and Guerreiro.
Fresh legs in attack as Fredrik Jensen replaces Gregoritsch.
CALIGIURI MAKES IT TWO!
It's all too easy for the home side as Gregoritsch lofts a superb ball over the Dortmund defence for Caligiuri to chase. Only Meunier runs back to challenge the summer signing but he loses out and Caligiuri provides a tidy finish beyond Bürki to double the Augsburg lead. The home side are currently top of the Bundesliga!
MISSING THE FINAL PASS
Dortmund are getting in good positions around the Augsburg penalty area to create chances but the final pass has been missing so far. Once again, Meunier is in space on the right and crosses low into the box, but misses Sancho and Haaland while finding an Augsburg defender. Frustration will continue to build if they don't begin to tick in attack.
Both sides have good starts to this half. Both have been able to get on the ball in the early goings while Augsburg have defended some early Dortmund pressure, with Sancho and Guerreiro looking to work magic together down the left-hand side.
The ball is rolling once again for the second half here in Augsburg. No changes for either side.

Bellingham forces a great save from Gikiewicz to end the half with a cross-shot. Haaland was almost on hand to tap home the rebound, but it just missed him. The Englishman then has another go from the edge of the box and a deflection takes it behind.
We're into two minutes of added time here.
Augsburg have out-run their visitors by almost five kilometres in the first half already.
HARD WORK PAYS OFF
Distance run (km)
ENDING THE HALF WELL
They have the lead with their only attempt on goal so far and Augsburg are keeping the pressure on to end the first half. More defending for Dortmund to do.
The home side take the lead before the break against the run of play. A free-kick is swung into the Dortmund box by Caligiuri and it's a peach. The Dortmund defence fail to get to it first and Bürki stays in goal as Uduokhai meets it to power a header home.
Four efforts on target so far for Dortmund with Gikiewicz called into action early on. The away side have not troubled the new Augsburg goalkeeper for some time now, however.
ALL DORTMUND IN THE FIRST HALF
Attempts on goal
AUGSBURG COMPACT, BVB OPEN
The home side have a very compact shape so far, restricting Dortmund's ability to get through on goal to a minimum. In answer, the away side have tried to spread the play to the wings and bring the Augsburg defence out of position. An interesting battle as this game continues.
NOT EASY FOR EITHER SIDE

Khedira now cautioned for a foul on Bellingham and Dortmund's players aren't happy. Haaland is also cautioned for his reaction as well as Augsburg captain Gouweleeuw.
The first caution of the game as the Augsburg forward brings down Reyna with a late challenge.
PANIC IN DORTMUND'S DEFENCE
Meunier sends an over-hit back-pass towards Bürki who is forced to leap high wide of his goal to keep it in play with a header. He does so, but Niederlechner is there to get the ball back and he crosses into the box with the goalkeeper stranded. Luckily, Hummels is in place to clear it.
FIRST ATTACKING MOVE
The home side get forward properly for the first time as Framberger latches onto a loose ball in the Dortmund half and plays a lovely through ball for Niederlechner to latch onto. He takes the ball past Bürki and his brought down with a penalty pending, but the offside flag is up against him.
Plenty of defending to do here in the early going for Augsburg. The home side pinned back in their own penalty area for a minute or two, but finally able to clear properly. Dortmund are controlling the possession though and keeping most of it in the Augsburg half.
REYNA TAKES A KNOCK
An early warning for Gruezo after a late challenge on the American.

CLASS FROM BVB
It would've been a contender for Goal of the Season already had this gone in as Sancho plays a one-two with Guerreiro on the left, with a backheel sending the Englishman towards the Augsburg box. He then exchanges a one-two with Haaland in a tight space between Augsburg defenders before poking the ball goalward, but he had been forced to take a weak effort at goal by some last-ditch defending.
Dortmund dominating the early proceedings here.
ALL BVB EARLY ON
300 UP FOR CALIGIURI
The former Wolfsburg and Schalke right-sided midfielder is making his 300th Bundesliga appearance today. He's been in a thorn in Dortmund's side in the past...
Great effort from the Dortmund midfielder who fires a volley at goal from the edge of the Augsburg box. It's heading for the back of the net, but Gikiewicz makes a tidy save.
FIRST GO AT GOAL
The away side have the first shot on target as Sancho races through the Augsburg defence before Haaland takes the ball forward from him. He lays it off to Bellingham whose tame shot is a simple one for Gikiewicz.
HERE WE GO!
The ball is rolling in Augsburg with Dortmund in town. Settle in for 90 minutes of Bundesliga action!

FANS IN AUGSBURG
There are 6,000 home fans in the WWK Arena today as the players make their way out onto the pitch.
READY TO GO!
We're now just minutes away from kick-off in Augsburg. The players are heading back into their dressing rooms to get their final preparations done for the game. A big one at the start of the season for both sides.
ANOTHER HAALAND SPECIAL TODAY?
AUGSBURG'S DANGER MEN
Michael Gregoritsch, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Schalke, ended a run of 13 Bundesliga matches without a goal last time out. It was his first league strike for Augsburg since 11 May 2019. He's joined in attack by last season's top scorer for the club, Florian Niederlechner, who failed to get off the mark last weekend but hit 13 goals last season - a personal best.
GO INSIDE THE BVB DRESSING ROOM
THE TASK AT HAND
Augsburg have conceded more Bundesliga goals against Dortmund (48) than any other Bundesliga club. They let five goals past them in each of their meetings with BVB in 2019/20, and that will have to change if the Bavarian side want to earn points today.
WHITE VS. BLACK TODAY
Augsburg will play in their white home strip today, while visitors Dortmund will don their new black away kit for the first time in the Bundesliga.

AUGSBURG TEAM NEWS
Also just the one change for the home side after their winning start to the season last time out against Union Berlin. Andre Hahn came on from the bench to score in that game and has earned a start today in doing so, coming in for Ruben Vargas. Marco Richter is also back in the squad after injury and on the bench.
DORTMUND TEAM NEWS
Just one change for Lucien Favre's side as Raphael Guerreiro returns from injury to replace the, now injured, Thorgan Hazard. Otherwise it's as you were from the 3-0 home win over Gladbach last week with Gio Reyna starting ahead of club captain Marco Reus in a three-man attack alongside Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.
