DORTMUND GO FOURTH; BAYERN ARE CHAMPIONS!
What a game! Dortmund climb above Frankfurt, who play Frankfurt on Sunday. Leipzig can no longer catch Bayern, who seal a record-extending ninth Bundesliga title ahead of the late game against Gladbach.
GOAL!3 : 2
Superb defending from Upamecano to deny Reus a clear sight of goal. The Frenchman showed tremendous pace and strength to recover ground and toe the ball behind for a corner that comes to nothing.
From 2-0 down to 2-2! Haidara opens up the Dortmund defence with a superb ball into the channel for Hwang. He pulls it back for Olmo to fire past Bürki from six yards. It really was that simple! Hammer-blow for BVB's top-four hopes.
GOAL!2 : 2
Hazard makes way for Julian Brandt, the Belgian appearing to pull a muscle as he stretched to cut a ball back for Sancho.
Kluivert's in for Leipzig, but Delaney does just enough to put him off and the shot's into the side netting.
Yikes! Olmo turns Delaney inside-out on the angle of the six-yard box, but whips his effort into the side netting. Dortmund are wobbling...
That was Forsberg's last involvement - he makes way for Roma loanee Justin Kluivert. Nordi Mukiele is also on at right-wing-back for Henrichs.
LEIPZIG PULL ONE BACK!
Lukas Klostermann, who was a Dortmund fan as a kid, heads in a Forsberg header to reduce the arrears. Now we have a game!
FRESH LEGS, FRESH IDEAS?
Dahoud makes way for Delaney in the Dortmund midfield. Leipzig also have men warming up - they need a spark from somewhere...
GOAL!2 : 1
Dortmund extend their lead, and it's a beauty from Jadon Sancho! Guerreiro rolls the ball to his left for the England international, who shifts inside onto his right foot an curls low into the far corner with unerring accuracy from inside the Leipzig box.
GOAL!2 : 0
Kampl wins back possession in the Dortmund half, helping the ball into the path of Forsberg in the process. Sabitzer picks it up and continues his run, before forcing Bürki into action with a rising first-time effort from inside the BVB box. Nice confidence-booster for the Dortmund sub.
Hitz is unable to continue - or at least Terzic doesn't want to risk anything ahead of next Thursday's DFB Cup. Roman Bürki, the club's former No.1, is on for his first Bundesliga appearance since Matchday 18.
The early goal from Marco Reus is the difference at the break. It's a lead BVB deserve - as things stand, they're going fourth and the title to Bayern.
.... not taken. Leipzig shift the ball quickly down the left. Sabitzer and Angelino are involved as the ball is shifted towards Forsberg on the edge of the BVB area. The shot is momentarily on, but he opts to shift back inside, allowing the swarming Black-Yellows to get men in the way.
TIME ADDED ON
Two minutes left on the clock in Dortmund...
Hitz is back on his feet after a spot of treatment. Terzic will want to get his No.1 to half-time, before assessing the situation.
Marwin Hitz collides with Akanji as he comes to claim a Forsberg free-kick. The BVB stopper stays down, in real pain...
Guerreiro has a crack on his weaker right foot, but doesn't trouble Gulacsi. That may have been another story, had it been on his trusty left side.
WIDE FROM SANCHO
Outrageous from Dahoud, who Maradona spins his way away from Sabitzer on the edge of his own area. It's not long before BVB are on the offensive with Sancho. He races into the area, but Upamecano is blocking his route inside and his eventual shot is into the side netting.
GULACSI STANDS TALL
Peter Gulacsi is called on at his near-post to toe away Hazard's low drive. Nice move again from Dortmund, but Sancho overcooks the ensuing corner. Leipzig have not really got going yet...
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
Lukas Klostermann 33.87km/h
Dayot Upamecano 32.04km/h
Thorgan Hazard 31.75km/h
Upamecano concedes possession in his own area. It's helped on to Guerreiro, who feeds Reus on the edge of the area. He hits it first time with real venom, but it's all power and no precision.
Dortmund move the ball well inside the final third, but Guerreiro's outside-of-the-boot strike from the edge of the Leipzig area is way off target. The Portugal international needed forward runners either side of him. BVB in control, though.
All six of Reus's Bundesliga goals this season have given Dortmund the lead. With 133 Bundesliga strikes, he's now level in the all-time charts, alongside Giovane Elber, in 21st place.
WHAT A GOAL!
Wow! An electric start produces an electrifying goal in Dortmund. Reus coolly dummies Piszczek's inside-pass and continues his run in behind the Leipzig back line. Hazard is completely in sync with his captain as he flicks it into the space. Reus picks it up, cuts inside and smashes beyond Gulacsi on his left foot. Superb goal!
GOAL!1 : 0
Dortmund respond, with Reyna and Reus instrumental in earning a corner. Sancho swings it onto the head of Akanji, who has Gulacsi at full stretch. It goes wide - not sure the Leipzig No.1 would have got there.
Hitz makes a big save to deny Hwang! Sabitzer's clipped ball sends the muscular South Korean in on goal - he holds off Hummels, but can't steer the ball past Hitz's outstretched leg.
Leipzig are winless in their last six against Dortmund in the Bundesliga (D2, L4), while Julian Nagelsmann - back in a Bundesliga dugout for the first time since agreeing to join Bayern in the summer - has won just one of his 10 Bundesliga meetings with Dortmund.
HIGHLIGHTS: LEIPZIG 1-3 DORTMUND
And to more immediate matters, having already secured a top-four spot, Leipzig are - mathematically at least - still in the running for the title. Their faint hope of dislodging Bayern Munich in top spot will evaporate should they be unable to beat Dortmund, but victory would reduce the gap to four points at the top of the table, with six to play for prior to Bayern taking on Borussia Mönchengladbach later in the day. BVB begin the weekend in fifth, a point behind fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt, who host resurgent Mainz on Sunday. Only two rounds of fixtures remain after Matchday 32.
CUP DRESS REHEARSAL
In a cheeky subplot, these two face off in the DFB Cup final on 13 May. Dortmund haven't reached the final since winning the trophy for the fourth time in 2016/17. Leipzig were beaten finalists in 2018/19, and are gunning for their first piece of major silverware.
Hwang Hee-Chan's reward for scoring one and setting up an extra-time winner for Emil Forsberg against Werder Bremen in the DFB Cup last four is a second Bundesliga start. Forsberg also gets the nod, while Benjamin Henrichs makes a rare start at right-wing-back. Christopher Nkunku and Tyler Adams are among the absentees.
Erling Haaland has hit 25 Bundesliga goals this season at a rate of one every 89 minutes, but plays no part today. He missed the DFB Cup semi-final rout of Holstein Kiel, and hasn't trained all week. Marco Reus leads the line once more, with Jadon Sancho, Gio Reyna and Thorgan Hazard manning the supply line. Emre Can and Mo Dahoud partner up in central midfield, with Jude Bellingham suspended.
