A LATE OMEN?
Last season Dortmund scored a league-leading 21 goals in the final 15 minutes of games...
We're now into four minutes of time added on at the end of this game.
STILL PUSHING ON
We're heading towards added time here with Dortmund still pushing on for an equaliser. Freiburg's defence is up to the task, though.

DEBUT FOR EGGESTEIN
This week's big signing from Werder Bremen is on for his debut, replacing Keitel in midfield.
ON THE BALL
Almost 70 percent of the ball for Dortmund in this game and that is only going to increase in these final minutes, but they've managed just six attempts in the second half so far.
Can, Moukoko and Hummels are all on with 10 minutes to play.
A fourth yellow card for BVB with substitute Guerreiro the next in the book.
It's tight and difficult around the edge of the Freiburg area as Dortmund press towards the hosts' goal. BVB looking for any way through with flicks from Malen, but it's not working yet.
HUNTING FOR GOALS

Brandt is on for Reyna with Dortmund, while it's three substitutions for Freiburg as Schade, Haberer and Demirovic all come on.
High temperatures here in the Black Forest and we'll have another break here in this second half. It looks as if Julian Brandt is ready to come on for BVB.
BIG CHANCE FOR HAALAND!
But he snatches at this one. Dortmund's No.9 is played in behind over the top of the Freiburg defence, but he fires the ball high and wide over the crossbar.
GOAL COMING FOR HAALAND?
Wooyeong JeongErling Haaland
Another fantastic free-kick from Grifo but this time Kobel keeps it out. The Italian tried to beat him on his side of the goal, but the BVB No.1 read his attempt.

A third yellow of the day for Dortmund as Akanji is cautioned for a foul on Schmid.
DORTMUND BACK IN IT!
The away side are back in this game and it comes from an own-goal. Fine work from Reyna running into the Freiburg area and he lays off for Passlack to cross. It's Bellingham going for it at the near post but he misses the ball and it bounces in off Keitel in the end.
BIG CHANCE FOR MALEN!
The Dutchman is in acres of space on the left and decides to take Flekken on, trying to push the ball around the Freiburg goalkeeper but he's forced wide and his cross is cleared by the goalkeeper. Dortmund lacking some creativity in attack.
SALLAI TAKES SECONDS
The Hungary international also scored Freiburg's second goal of the season last season.
SALLAI DOUBLES THE LEAD!
Freiburg have come out with confidence and deservedly double their lead. It's Bellingham who is caught out in midfield by Höfler and the hosts break. Sallai sends Jeong down the left and he dinks a cross into the middle. It finds Höler, who heads down in front of goal where Sallai is waiting and thumps home. A fantastic goal on the counter!
JEONG ON THE RUN

HAALAND HEADS OVER
An early chance for Haaland as he leaps to meet Reyna's corner in front of goal and it's a free header, but he can't keep it down and has to watch it sail over the crossbar.
Freiburg come flying out after the break and it's a huge chance for Sallai at the back post as he gathers the loose ball after Schmid's cross caused panic in the box. It's a fantastic save from Kobel to deny him, but the flag is up on the far side to cancel that out.
No changes at the break as we get back underway for the second half.
STORY SO FAR

We'll have three minutes of time added on at the end of the first half.
ALMOST A MIX-UP
A teasing cross from Schmid comes into the Dortmund area from the right and it goes between Kobel and Witsel, dropping loose in front of goal. Akanji is just ahead of Höler to clear, but that could have been calamitus.
Dortmund have amassed almost 200 more passes than their hosts, but Freiburg's defensive shape is keeping them from creating clear-cut chances. It's Höfler and Keitel doing a fine job in the middle of midfield.
NOT MALEN, NOT HAALAND...
Wooyeong JeongJude Bellingham
Guerreiro is coming on here for Schulz, who has taken a knock.
BELLINGHAM HAS A GO
An eighth attempt on goal of the day so far for BVB as Bellingham takes aim from range, but this one is deflected into the hands of Flekken. Bellingham has had three attempts on goal already, the most for Dortmund.
MISTAKES IN MIDFIELD
Dortmund letting themselves down too often in this first half, losing possession in midfield and gifting the home side opportunities on the counter-attack. Rose is looking to get his side going from the sidelines.
The midfielder is cautioned for pulling down Jeong on the counter.
HUGE CHANCE FOR JEONG!
It should really be 2-0 for Freiburg and Jeong has his head in his hands. It's Grifo who creates the chances once again as he cuts the ball into the middle from the left, but in his attempts to open his right foot to get his shot on target, Jeong puts the ball wide.
BELLINGHAM OFF THE POST!
The Englishman meets a corner from the right side with a header at the back post which beats the reach of Flekken, but comes back out off the post.
GETTING MALEN INVOLVED
The Dutchman has only had eight touches of the ball so far, the fewest of any BVB player. But Rose's troops are trying to get him more and more involved.
Grifo is on the free-kicks again for Freiburg as he curls one in from a wider position and it finds Nico Schlotterbeck, but his header is a simple save for Kobel. A rare chance there for the home side.

Dahoud sends Malen in behind with a tidy through-ball and he looks to combine with Haaland in front of goal, but it's well defended by the Freiburg defence.
We're underway again in Freiburg.
The heat is on at Freiburg, so they players take a break for some drinks.
SLOWING IT DOWN
Dortmund looking to stay patient in possession once again here. Freiburg's high pressing is making their build-up play difficult for them.

THE MAN FOR THE IMPORTANT GOALS

ON THE CHARGE
Dortmund pushing on now when they're in possession, looking to get forward quickly and work chances on goal. They've made Flekken work once or twice already, but they'll be looking to be more clinical as the game goes on.
HAALAND ON TARGET
Tidy play around the Freiburg box from Dortmund as Bellingham leaves possession for Reyna, who finds Haaland in some space to the right-hand side. He wraps his left foot around the ball, but it's a tame shot in the end which Flekken gobbles up.
A CLEAR MIDFIELD BATTLE
Nicolas HöflerGiovanni Reyna
What a run from the 18-year-old. He picks up the ball 25 yards from goal after a touch from Haaland and skips past one challenge, then in between two more and into the penalty area before he gets a shot away. But it's straight at Flekken who keeps the scoreline as it is.
Neither side has really been able to find consistency going forward so far here. Dortmund are looking to keep the ball, staying patient in their search for openings, but Freiburg have the lead through that stunner from Grifo.
That was the fourth direct free-kick scored by Grifo in his Bundesliga career, and the first since June 2020. It took over a year, but it was well worth the wait.
ROCKET FROM GRIFO!
An absolute beauty from Grifo to put Freiburg ahead here. He steps up to a free-kick all of 30 yards out from goal and curls it with power over the wall, beyond the reach of Kobel and into the top corner off the post to the right of the Dortmund goal. What a fantastic way to start this game!
FIRST CHANCE FOR HAALAND!
A miscommunication in the Freiburg defence allows Passlack to bring the ball down in the opposition area. He finds Haaland next to him, but he can't get a good connection on his shot as he goes with the outside of his left foot rather than his right.
FINDING THEIR TOUCH
Dortmund just looking to control the ball here in the opening minutes, passing across the pitch through defence in search of an opening up the pitch. Malen is looking to get wide already.
HERE WE GO!
The ball is rolling in Freiburg in the first of their three final games here at their legendary home.
All Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 games will see a moment's silence before games this weekend in memory of Gerd Müller, who passed away last Sunday.
Just a few minutes to go now until kick-off in Freiburg. Fans are in the stands, the sun is shining and we're ready for what should be a cracking game.
TALE OF THE TAPE
Dortmund can make it two wins from two to start the season today, which would see them sit top of the table depending on goal difference. Freiburg took a point from their trip to Bielefeld last time out and will be looking to cause Dortmund problems at home once again.

HAALAND FUN FACT
Believe it or not, despite now having 42 goals in 44 Bundesliga appearances, this is the first time Haaland has been top of the league's scoring chart.
HISTORY TO REPEAT ITSELF?
The Black Forest club's 2-1 home win in February was their first over Dortmund since May 2010 and only their fourth overall in 42 Bundesliga meetings.
BIG DAY FOR CAPTAIN GÜNTER
Freiburg captain Christian Günter becomes the club's record appearance maker in the Bundesliga with 237 top-flight outings. The Germany international left-back, who was part of his country's Euro 2020 squad, will be looking to celebrate with a win today.
WATCH: DORTMUND'S FIVE-STAR OPENING
ON THE HAALAND TRAIN
Erling Haaland's two goals and assists each against Frankfurt mean he's had a hand in seven goals from three competitive matches this season.
Dortmund are on an eight-game winning run in the Bundesliga, which equals their club record from 2011/12 under Jürgen Klopp. Dortmund, of course, went on to win their last Bundesliga title that season.
