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.

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.

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.

ADDED TIME

We're into just one minute of added time at the end of the first half.

DABBUR TO THE RESCUE

After 10 Bundesliga appearances without scoring, Dabbur found the net again for the first time since Matchday 6.
40'

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.

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.
31'

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.

BELLINGHAM DENIED!

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.

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.

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.
16'

FINDING SPACE

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

With Kramaric out, Rudy's ability to pick out a forward pass will be even more crucial for Hoffenheim today.
13'

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.

SANCHO INVOLVED

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.

Kick-off!

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!

This week, bundesliga.com had the chance to sit down with Dortmund's 17-year-old midfielder to discuss his first season in the Bundesliga so far, his heroes growing up, how he's so confident and mature for his age and much more. Find the full interview on the website and in the app.

UNWANTED THREE-PEAT?

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.

INJURY NEWS

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?

Hoffenheim's Croatian forward scored all four goals in this fixture last season, but is not involved today. Will Hoffenheim still be able to get a positive result without him?

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.
