DORTMUND ON THE BREAK

The away side continue to cause problems on the counter here, but Haaland can't catch a break in his search for a hat-trick goal. He almost looks disappointed to have only scored twice so far.

WOLFSBURG FRUSTRATED

The home side are one man up but can't break through the Dortmund defence here. Add to that the away side have Haaland causing havoc when on the ball at the other end and you can see where the frustration is coming from.

HAALAND MAKES IT TWO!

Erling Haaland: inevitable, unstoppable, and keeping the race for the top-four alive. It's Dortmund under pressure but Dahoud intercepts a pass from Brooks before firing a pass forward for Haaland to chase. He races away from the Wolfsburg defence chasing back and slots home past Casteels. What a goal on the counter, the 25th of the season for Dortmund's No.9 and his 10th brace of the season.

AKANJI HEADER!

The centre-back is up for a corner and meets it with a big header from 12 yards, which he sends looping back towards goal. It's over Casteels, but Arnold is quick to see the danger and tracks back to head off his own line.

HAALAND FORCES A SAVE!

A big chance for Dortmund as Sancho plays Haaland in on goal, but he's forced to the left by Lacroix. He can still get a shot away but it is straight at Casteels and he's able to beat it away.

WEGHORST GOES CLOSE!

A big chance at the start of the second half as Weghorst turns onto a pass into the Dortmund area but flashes his shot high over the Dortmund crossbar.

DAHOUD ON TARGET

A good few moments of pressure for Dortmund, which results in Dahoud curling a shot at goal from distance which is simple for Casteels to save. Reus has been their key man so far, and is looking back into some of the form we're expecting to see from a player of his quality.
39'

BIG CHANCE FOR GERHARDT!

Wolfsburg continue to find space through midfield as Lacroix finds Baku, who turns and slots Gerhardt in on goal to the right of Hitz. He shoots towards the near post but hits the side-netting rather than the back of the net.
35'

ONE SHOT, ONE GOAL

When you have Haaland, all you need is one shot on goal. And thanks to Baku's misplaced back-pass, Dortmund's No.9 got his chance.

ARNOLD SHOT BLOCKED

Weghorst and Philipp win the ball from Sancho in midfield and Wolfsburg break, with Arnold found in the middle to shoot at goal. His effort is blocked behind for a corner - Wolfsburg's third of the game already, while Dortmund are yet to have one.
32'

END TO END GAME

It was Dortmund in control at the start, but Wolfsburg are beginning to enjoy far more possession now as this game continues to swing in flows of control for either side. Neither has been totally dominant, and both will know they can do better going forward, but Dortmund do lead.

GOOD CHANCE!

Piszczek crosses into the middle from the right flank with Haaland and Reus looking to get on the end of it. It's Haaland and Lacroix who battle for the ball in, but neither get a touch as it bounces wide across goal in the end. A smile from the pair as they get to their feet, too.
24'

MORE HAALAND RECORDS

Haaland scored his 15th away goal this season to give his side the lead here, equalling the BVB record set by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from 2016/17 for the most in a single campaign. No Dortmund player has ever scored more away from home in a season.

CAN'T STOP ERLING

Try as he might, Maxence Lacroix just couldn't keep out Erling Haaland's shot to make it 1-0 to Dortmund here.
20'

LAST PASS LACKING

Wolfsburg have done everything right so far here. They're winning the midfield battle, looking strong defensively and have been creating chances, but just the final touch or pass is lacking so far. Gerhardt stings the palms of Hitz with a shot from range with their first shot on target of the day.
17'

LOOKING FOR WOUT

Wolfsburg have had a few crosses tease their way across the face of the Dortmund goal here, the most recent from Otavio on the left, but the Dutchman was just a touch late to reaching it this time.

A FUN BATTLE TO WATCH

Lacroix vs. Haaland is going to be one to watch today, with Haaland already ruining the hosts' chances of a clean sheet with his first shot on goal.

HAALAND FOR THE LEAD!

And out of nowhere, Dortmund take the lead in Wolfsburg! It's a moment to forget for Ridle Baku who has gifted Dortmund the lead. He's on the left flank and looks to pass back to Brooks, but misjudges it and instead plays Haaland in on goal. He can't be caught, and his shot from close range takes a touch off Lacroix and goes in past Casteels.

WOLFSBURG ON THE BREAK

While Dortmund have had the majority of the ball so far, Wolfsburg have looked most threatening going forward. Their pressing in midfield is allowing them to win the ball and break quickly, putting the Dortmund defence under some unexpected pressure.
8'

HUGE CHANCE FOR OTAVIO!

A long throw-in from Mbabu on the right is sent into the middle, and flicked on by a Dortmund head towards the back post. It comes to Otavio to strike from 10 yards, but with pressure ahead of him, he miscues his effort and drags it wide. The left-back should have got that one on target at the very least.
5'

BRIGHTER START

The away side have dominated possession in the opening phase of this game, with Reus and Sancho getting involved in the build-up play. Haaland is still to have many more than one or two touches of the ball, if any at all.
2'

SANCHO ON THE LEFT

The Englishman - returning to start for the first time since his injury lay-off - is out on the left flank to start, with Gio Reyna on the right. We know how much BVB's forwards enjoy to switch positions behind Haaland, though, so expect that to change constantly.

KICK-OFF FAST APPROACHING

We're less than 10 minutes from getting this huge game underway in Wolfsburg. The Wolves can all but confirm their place in the Champions League for next season, while Dortmund are looking to hunt them down. We have a feeling this is going to be good...

THE WOLVES' DEN

Wolfsburg have the fourth-best home record of any Bundesliga team this season, losing just once at the Volkswagen Arena all campaign so far. That one defeat came in their last home game against Bayern Munich, but Glasner's side have kept eight clean sheets in their 14 home matches so far this season.

REUS' FAVOURITE OPPOSITION

Marco Reus’ eight goals against Wolfsburg are more than any other player has managed between these two teams. The Dortmund captain is starting in the No.10 role today.

DORTMUND IN FORM

Dortmund have scored in each of their previous 27 Bundesliga matchdays, with their only blank this term coming in the 2-0 loss at Augsburg on Matchday 2. BVB have also lost just one of their last four league away games - the 4-2 defeat to Bayern - scoring 11 times in the process at an average of 2.75 goals per game.

WOLFSBURG TEAM NEWS

Brooks' customary defensive partner Lacroix was rested last time out, but is rotated back in along with the suspension-free Otavio. Pongracic and Roussillon are the men to make way. Right-back Mbabu also returns from a ban and foot problem, while Baku has overcome a knock to start as Oliver Glasner's side chase the win that would - barring an end-of-season collapse - guarantee them a top-four finish.

BVB TEAM NEWS

Haaland missed a penalty and a number of chances on a rare off-day at the Signal Iduna Park, but will be licking his lips at the prospect of being reunited with fit-again winger Sancho, who made his injury comeback as a substitute in the 2-0 triumph. The England international starts alongside Reyna and Reus, while Can replaces suspended captain Hummels, with Dahoud slotting into the midfield.
