We'll have four minutes of added time in Dortmund.
A sixth yellow card for Hoffenheim today with Dabbur the next in the book.
HAALAND BRINGS US LEVEL!
Twice he has been denied, but this time Haaland makes his chance count. The ball runs loose to him after a challenge from Dahoud in midfield and he races beyond Samassekou to slot the ball home past Baumann.

BIG CHANCE FOR BEBOU!
Gacinovic flicks a long ball down in front of goal for Bebou to reach, but he can't divert the ball past Hitz from close range. Hoffenheim coming closest to adding to the scoring here with time ticking on.
NOT FAR AWAY!
Baumgartner flicks the ball back to Gacinvoci after Rudy's free-kick and Gacinovic fires across goal but sees his effort miss the target.
Hoffenheim's defender is down after a knock on his right foot from a challenge by Bellingham, who has just gone off to be replaced by Schulz.
The midfielder's free-kick takes a touch off the Dortmund wall and Hitz is forced to push is over his own crossbar. Hoffenheim still pushing on and causing the Dortmund defence concern.
The second Dortmund man to be shown yellow is Akanji, for bringing down Dabbur on the break.

POSCH AND VOGT BOOKED
Yellow cards for all three of Hoffenheim's backline now with Posch and Vogt the net in the book.
Reus, Moukoko and Dahoud all on for Dortmund with less than 30 to play.
NO GOAL FOR HAALAND
He has the ball in the Hoffenheim net for a second time, but this one is ruled out again. Hummels' touch in front of goal to Delaney was then flicked at goal by the Dane and came back out off the post. Haaland was perfectly placed to put the rebound home, but was offside in doing so.
A yellow card for the Hoffenheim defender for bringing down Reyna.
SLOW TO START
Dortmund not getting going yet in this second half, but the changes are coming. Reus, Moukoko and Dahoud all getting ready on the sidelines.
BEBOU PUTS HOFFENHEIM IN FRONT!
After missing a host of chances in the first half, Bebou makes his mark in the second. A poke home from in front of goal after a short corner to Rudy was then crossed in and Bebou was in the right place at the near post to flick it in ahead of Hitz.
A brilliant header from Rudy's corner by Dabbur at the near post, but Hitz makes a crucial save to tip the ball over.
It's been an end-to-end start to this game again in the second half with Rudy having a shot blocked before Sancho lost out on the counter-attack going the other way.
HAALAND HIGH AND WIDE!
First big chance for Dortmund as Haaland plays Reyna the ball and it's returned to him on the edge of the Hoffenheim area. He has space to shoot, but blasts it high over the Hoffenheim crossbar.
The ball is rolling once more for the second half in Dortmund with no changes at the break for either side.
We're into just one minute of added time at the end of the first half.

APPROACHING THE BREAK
It's still a frantic game that's full of energy in Dortmund, but both defences have begun to snuff of opposition chances. Hoffenheim are showing confidence in attack, while BVB's forward motions have been a touch more seldom in this first half.
A GOOD OMEN FOR BVB?
When Jadon Sancho has scored, Dortmund has never lost in the Bundesliga. So far their record reads 23 wins, five draws and no defeats.
BELLINGHAM AND BEBOU BATTLING

HUMMELS STOPS BEBOU
A huge challenge from Hummels who comes in to block Bebou before he can pull the trigger with his next shot on goal from just in front of the Dortmund goal.
WIDE-OPEN GAME HERE!
Chances at both ends with both sides struggling to defend as well as they'd like. We've already seen two goals and it looks like more will come.
DABBUR BRINGS US LEVEL!
Hoffenheim finally take one of their many chances in this first half and it's the first from Dabbur. Rudy times a pass perfectly into the Dortmund area and Dabbur reaches it ahead of Can and clips the ball back across past Hitz with a fine finish.
A huge chance for the Englishman to score his first Bundesliga goal as he's in one-on-one with Baumann. He takes far too much time to pick his spot, though, and Posch recovers to make a big challenge right in front of his own goal.
HAALAND RULED OUT
The Dortmund No.9 has the ball in the Hoffenheim net having been played in on goal, but he's far offside and that one is correctly called back.

BEBOU FIRES WIDE
Another chance for Bebou as Dortmund fail to clear in their own area. Akanji's effort falling to Bebou inside the Dortmund area, but he snatches at his shot and drags the ball wide of goal.
Hoffenheim's midfielder with a late challenge on Delaney and he's now in the book, too.
SANCHO OPENS THE SCORING!
Guerreiro plays Sancho a quick pass on the left wing to send the Englishman in behind. He's too quick for the Hoffenheim defence to catch and shows Haaland and Bebou how it's done by curling the ball past Baumann into the near bottom corner.
WHAT A CHANCE FOR BEBOU!
The Hoffenheim forward lets another huge opportunity pass. He skips past Hummels with a lovely touch before going one-on-one with Hitz once more. This time, he misses the target, only hitting the ball into the side-netting.
A foul on Rudy sees Delaney take the first yellow card of the game.
HUGE CHANCE FOR BEBOU!
The Hoffenheim forward battles to win the ball from Akanji and races away from the Dortmund defender. He's one-on-one with Hitz but it's an outstanding piece of defending from Akanji, who chases back to get a foot on the ball before Bebou's strike which then goes straight at the Dortmund 'keeper.
Dortmund are doing well to create space going forward. Reyna is in the pocket in midfield this time, and his pass to Brandt leads to Can being played into the Hoffenheim area down the right. His cross is snuffed out by Baumann this time, but Dortmund are working well out wide.
RUDY MAKING THINGS TICK

CLOSE FOR BAUMGARTNER!
Guerreiro loses out to Rudy in possession, and he quickly chips the ball into the area looking for Dabbur. Hitz reaches the ball first but can only palm it down and it comes to Baumgartner on the volley. He goes for goal, but sends his effort over the Dortmund crossbar to the left of the area.
HUGE CHANCE FOR HAALAND!
Dortmund's No.9 is played in one-on-one with Baumann by Guerreiro and gets a shot away with the outside of his left foot, but Baumann is out quickly and blocks it with his left foot from close range.
The English winger is looking lively in the early stages, getting on the ball plenty from his position on the left wing. Dortmund's No.7 posted a video of himself out running at 5am during the week on his Instagram. He'll be out to show that hard work pays off today.
Dortmund having more of the ball in the early stages here, and mainly in defence. Reyna, Brandt and Sancho already switching positions in free-roaming roles behind Haaland.
GRILLITSCH IN DEFENCE
Hoffenheim's midfielder drops into the centre of defence today in Hoffenheim's back three, with Vogt to his left and Posch to his right.
The away side get us going in Dortmund on a chilly Saturday afternoon.
TALE OF THE TAPE
Dortmund are slipping down the table but remain four points off the top four as things stand. A win today will put pressure on those around them, while another defeat could see them fall even further behind with teams around them bagging points. Hoffenheim's season is stalling, too, and they're looking to push away from a potential relegation battle.
MOTIVE FOR HAALAND
Haaland has played more Bundesliga games (15) than goals scored (14) for the first time this season. The Dortmund No.9 will be out to get the goals above the games once again today.
JUDE BELLINGHAM EXCLUSIVE!
Hoffenheim have not lost three successive Bundesliga matches since August 2019, though the first two in that run fell at the end of the previous campaign. They have not lost three on the bounce in a single season since April 2015.
RECENT BVB STRUGGLES
Dortmund were in the top three for most points at home in each of the last two campaigns. They're ninth in the current home table on 16 points (W5, D1, L3). BVB also kept five clean sheets across their first six matches of the season. They've recorded just one in 14 since.
Kramaric's injury has been confirmed by the club as an ankle problem. Hoffenheim have also confirmed that Richards is only on the bench due to a knock he took in the club's final training session yesterday.
WATCH: NO KRAMARIC, NO PARTY?
BVB TEAM NEWS
Dortmund No.1 Bürki has a shoulder injury so his Swiss compatriot Hitz starts his third league game in a row. Meunier had to break off from training this week due to his knee injury. Can is on hand to fill in, with Bellingham back in to start in midfield. Brandt starts in an advanced midfield role with captain Reus on the bench.
HOFFENHEIM TEAM NEWS
The big news for the away side is that they are missing their man made for this fixture, in Kramaric. The record Croatian scorer in the Bundesliga hit all four of Hoffenheim's goals against BVB on the final day of last season but is out this afternoon. Bebou came on at half-time to score in the 3-1 defeat to Frankfurt and that strike - and his pace - see him displace Belfodil. Sessegnon will not return to training until next week. Despite three goals being conceded, Bayern loanee Richards impressed on the left of Hoffenheim's back three in his first full 90 minutes in the Bundesliga. The American defender is only on the bench this afternoon, though.
