MÖHWALD!

The midfielder still wants his goal and connects sweetly with an effort from the edge of the area that Kobel does very well to claw away and preserve his clean sheet.

ALMOST A GIFT

Back at the scene of his record-breaking first Bundesliga goal, Moukoko runs at Luthe to apply some pressure and is almost gifted a goal when the ball is kicked against the teenage striker and loops just inches wide.

GUERREIRO <3 UNION

The Portugal international has scored in his last three games against Union. He's only got more Bundesliga goals against Schalke and Leverkusen (both four) than he does against the Berliners (three).

UNION BACK IN IT? NO...

A potential lifeline for the Berliners as Trimmel delivers an inch-perfect cross from the right on the day he became Union's outright record appearance holder in the Bundesliga. Möhwald bursts between everyone to head home, but the referee is called to take a look on the pitchside monitor and decides that Ujah had fouled Akanji while challenging for the ball.

DONE DEAL?

Union had looked to be coming back into the game but this might be the final nail. Bellingham just about keeps the ball in to cut it back. Malen is denied from point blank by Luthe, but it falls to Guerreiro, who pokes in to make it 3-0 and surely secure three points.

GUERREIRO TOO CENTRAL

BVB earn a free-kick pretty central, around 25 yards out. Reus and Guerreiro are standing over it. It's the latter in the end to take, but he only bends it into the grateful arms of Luthe.

Great chance for Union at the start of this half as Oczipka delivers a free-kick from the left. Prömel gets his head to it around the back but almost seems like he didn't expect it and the ball bounces off him away from the direction of the goal.

REUS DOUBLE!

Erling who? The Dortmund captain has stepped up and put his side in the driving seat. Malen looks to burst through the middle and gets into a tangle with Baumgartl trying to recover. But the ball falls free to Reus charging up from behind, he rounds Luthe and slots into the empty net.

REUS STRIKES!

It had been coming and Dortmund now have the lead. Again they flood black and yellow shirts into the box and the ball pops up for Reus to the left of goal. No mistake from the BVB captain as he drills his shot between the legs of Luthe.

FORMATION WATCH

The question before kick-off was whether it was a back three or four from Dortmund. Well, Akanji is definitely the furthest right of the defenders but not playing quite as high as Guerreiro on the left. It's not beyond teams nowadays to almost look for a hybrid, switching between a three and four when in possession and not. One to keep a further eye on...
Kick-off!

GREAT ATMOPSHERE

As always at the Alte Försterei, there's a great atmosphere. Even with only 10,000 of a possible 22,000 allowed in.
camera-professional-play-symbol

STILL A STRONG RECORD

Although their record here isn’t good, Dortmund still have the historic advantage over Union, winning their three Bundesliga home games by comfortable margins of 5-0, 2-0 and 4-2. Haaland has scored four of those, meaning there’s no Bundesliga team he’s got more against. How will BVB fare without their star striker today?

KEEP HOLD OF IT

The stats show that the number of goals scored in the Bundesliga following turnovers of possession has increased substantially in recent years. Dortmund in particular have been victims of that this season. They conceded three times after losing the ball last week against Leverkusen. It means they have shipped 13 in that manner over the season – the most of any team. Union have conceded the fourth fewest with six. Only three have been counter-attacks, while BVB have been hit seven times on the break – again, the most in the division.

WHO WILL SHOW A REACTION?

Both these sides were beaten last matchday, but both have also bounced back with at least a point after their last nine defeats. It’s over a year since either side lost back-to-back Bundesliga games.

A HISTORY-MAKING MATCH: PART II

It wasn’t the only time this game has seen history made. Dortmund’s first visit here on Matchday 3 of 2019/20 saw Union record the first win in their Bundesliga history, beating BVB 3-1 thanks to Marius Bülter and Sebastian Andersson. Die Eisernen remain the only team Borussia have visited in the Bundesliga without earning a single point.

A HISTORY-MAKING MATCH

Dortmund have only come to the Alte Försterei twice before in the Bundesliga and lost both, but their most recent visit did see Bundesliga history made as Youssoufa Moukoko came off the bench to become the youngest goalscorer in the league’s history, just 28 days after his 16th birthday.

DORTMUND TEAM NEWS

BVB were heavily beaten last matchday by Bayer Leverkusen, but Marco Rose only opts for two changes. Thomas Meunier is injured, so it looks like Manuel Akanji will shift over to right-back as Mats Hummels comes into central defence. Axel Witsel coming in to anchor the midfield in place of forward Thorgan Hazard is the other alteration. Top scorer Erling Haaland remains sidelined.

UNION TEAM NEWS

Urs Fischer makes five changes from the defeat at Augsburg last week. Andreas Voglsammer, Dominique Heintz, Niko Gießelmann and Rani Khedira are all unavailable, while Genki Haraguchi drops to the bench. Paul Jaeckel, Levin Öztunali, Grischa Prömel, Bastian Oczipka and one-time BVB youth player Sven Michel all come in.
