HOW HAS REUS MISSED!?

It should be 4-2 to Dortmund as the pour forward again. Reus plays a one-two with Meunier into the Hoffenheim area and has a free shot at goal from 10 yards, but he slides the ball inches wide of the post. An incredible miss! When will the drama end!?

WHAT. A. GAME.

HAALAND! INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

It could only be Erling Haaland! Do not scratch your eyes, he has scored just a minute after Dabbur's equaliser to surely win it for Dortmund. The home side break down the left and it's Wolf who collects the ball in the middle. His shot is saved and it falls to Moukoko who then has his shot blocked, but it comes to Haaland at the near post and he smashes home in style to send the home crowd wild!

DABBUR IN THE FINAL MINUTE!

Munas Dabbur silences the Dortmund crowd with an equaliser in the final minute here! Incredible. It's a corner swung into from the right by Rudy which is headed on at the near post by Akpoguma, and it loops to the back post where an unmarked Dabbur is waiting to slide home.

SO CLOSE FOR HAALAND!

Wolf plays Haaland the ball in the Hoffenheim area and he powers his way beyond Posch to have just enough space for a shot back across goal on his right foot. It beats Baumann but dribbles just inches past the post.

HOFFENHEIM PRESSING...

The away side are coming forward once again here as we enter the final 12 minutes of the game. Kramaric loops a header across goal from Geiger's corner which Haaland has to put behind.

ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

Jude Bellingham is loving life in front of the BVB fans after scoring for the first time in the Bundesliga at the Signal Iduna Park.
75'

KOBEL DENIES KRAMARIC!

Kramaric has a great position to fire a free-kick at goal from 22 yards, and decides to loop his effort back towards the goalkeeper's side of the net. Kobel retreats and tips the ball over his own crossbar.

It's a night for the 18-year-olds at Dortmund as Bellingham fires BVB back in front with 20 minutes to play. Guerreiro swings in a cross from the left and it's headed out by Raum, but only as far as Bellingham who controls with his thigh and finishes superbly with his left-foot across goal. His second Bundesliga goal!

HUGE CHANCE FOR AKANJI!

Brandt curls in a fantastic corner from the left and it's met by Akanji just five yards from goal. He has a free header and looks destined to score, but he glances his effort inches over the crossbar. He and Haaland are in disbelief.
67'

MALEN HAS A GO!

A swift break from Dortmund led by Reus sees Malen pick up possession on the left. He cuts in on his right foot and powers a shot towards the near post, but Baumann is down well to save low to his left.

A fantastic goal and a deserved one too after their improved second-half performance. It's tidy play around the Dortmund area as Geiger is found on the right.

HUGE CHANCE FOR KRAMARIC!

BRILLIANT BELLINGHAM

Dortmund have their tails up now and Bellingham does superbly to win the ball back from Rutter in midfield before being fouled by the substitute. The 18-year-old, much like fellow 18-year-old Reyna, is mature beyond his years.
49'

REYNA OPENS THE SCORING!

The 18-year-old fires home his second goal of the season on his 50th Bundesliga appearance to mark his historic night in style. It's tidy interplay from Reus and Bellingham, asthe Englishman flicks the ball forward into Reyna on the edge of the Hoffenheim area. One touch to control and a both precise and powerful finish beyond Baumann follows.

ALMOST FOR MALEN

Dortmund just missing the final touch as Malen races forward, cutting inside from the left. He finds Reus, who looks to return the pass to the Dutchman as he races beyond the Hoffenheim defence but Malen's first touch lets him down as he collects the pass.

HAALAND GOES CLOSE!

The next chance for Dortmund as Haaland heads the ball wide for Reus, who then crosses back to him at the back post. He's leaping high and can't control his header back across goal.
34'

SO NEARLY PERFECT!

Brilliant play from Dortmund as Akanji fires a pass into Haaland and he flicks it around the corner of Posch with his first touch. The reason is that Reus is running behind and Haaland's spotted him, but his pass for the captain has a little too much pace on it.
33'

ALL DORTMUND

The next chance is a tough one for Reyna as Meunier's cross is a little too high for him to get real direction on his header. Dortmund have had seven attempts on goal to Hoffenheim's one so far.
31'

FINE FOOTBALL!

Dortmund take the ball from one end to the other in style with Bellingham making a long run up the pitch to link up the play. Malen gets the ball and finds Guerreiro in space, who then crosses into the middle to find Haaland in front of goal. He challenges for the header with Posch and just about wins it, but his effort loops up and is simple for Baumann to gather.

ALMOST A YELLOW CARD RECORD

Baumgartner almost had an unwanted Bundesliga record earlier with his yellow card after 10 seconds. The fastest ever, though, was when Florian Niederlechner was given a yellow card was on Matchday 11 of the 2016/17 season as Freiburg went down 4-2 at Mainz (after 8 seconds).
16'

DORTMUND WANT THE BALL

The hosts are looking to build up possession here and are also keen to break the lines with forward passing through the Hoffenheim midfield where possible. Bellingham and Dahoud are key to that as they look to find the likes of Reus, Haaland and Malen in space ahead of them.

DON'T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THIS

With Haaland and Kramaric on the pitch, goal-mouth action is a guarantee here.

RUDY THE NO.10

Hoffenheim playing a 4-2-3-1 so far, with Geiger and Stiller sitting deeper while Rudy pushes into an attacking midfield role behind Kramaric.

Here come Dortmund with an immediate response. Haaland plays Reyna in on goal with a perfectly-timed pass. He's away from the Hoffenheim defence but forced to the left and do shoots with his left across goal, but he can't get the power behind his strike to trouble Baumann. A lively start!
3'

KRAMARIC OFF THE BAR!

What a start that would have been. Dortmund give away the ball too easily and Hoffenheim pour forward down the left. It's Bruun Larsen with a cross to the back post where Kramaric is waiting and he beats Reyna to the header, which sends the ball looping at goal. But it bounces back out off the upright.

HAALAND THE HERO?

Haaland has one goal and an assist to show for his first three meetings with Hoffenheim. However, Dortmund have won only one of their last seven fixtures against Hoffenheim (D3, L3).

IN-FORM HOFFENHEIM

Hoffenheim are unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions, dating back to a 2-1 loss to Augsburg on 3 April 2021.

KRAM LOVES FACING BVB!

Hoffenheim's Kramaric has scored seven times in eight games against Dortmund. He's only found the net more often against Hertha (eight goals).

50 UP FOR REYNA!

Reyna is set to make his 50th Bundesliga appearance tonight. Since debuting on 8 January 2020, he has registered five goals and eight assists and established himself as one of Dortmund's starting forwards.

WATCH: THE INCREDIBLE PROSPECT THAT IS JUDE BELLINGHAM

18 years young and a key man already in the Dortmund engine room: in his second year with the Black-and-Yellows, Jude Bellingham aims to help build on the success of the first, the bottom-line of which was a third place finish in the league and victory in the DFB Cup. We take a look at what makes the precocious England international such an out- standing prospect, with sheer talent by no means the only factor in the equation.

DORTMUND TEAM NEWS

Marco Rose has been able to welcome back several first-team players in the last week or so and one of them earns a start here with Thomas Meunier coming in at right-back. Left-back Nico Schulz went off injured in the first half of the Freiburg game, so Raphael Guerreiro - who came on for the German last weekend - starts in his stead. American Gio Reyna complained of a niggle after coming off after 70 minutes against Freiburg, although it's not thought to have put him in doubt for this fixture. Emre Can is not yet fit enough to be involved.

HOFFENHEIM TEAM NEWS

Ishak Belfodil joined the club this week from Hertha Berlin but doesn't feature here, as Sebastian Hoeneß makes just a couple one change to his side from their 2-2 draw with Union last time out. Dennis Geiger comes in for Munas Dabbur, adding some more presence to their midfield, with Andrej Kramaric leading the attack.

HEADING INTO THE INTERNATIONAL BREAK...

If ever you needed an incentive to enjoy the Bundesliga more than usual, we have one for you. After this weekend, the Bundesliga will be away for one week as we enter the first international break of the campaign. Enjoy it while you can, Bundesliga fans!

OFFICIAL TEAM NEWS COMING

With just over an hour until kick-off, it won't be long until we have official team news from both sides. Marco Rose has first-team players back in the fold - but will be without Mats Hummels for tonight - while Sebastian Hoeneß is beginning to settle on his preferred side.

HAALAND VS. KRAMARIC!

The headline act of this weekend opener is the battle in attack between Erling Haaland of Dortmund and Andrej Kramaric of Hoffenheim. The pair are almost guaranteed to be among the goals at the moment. Haaland has scored two and assisted two from his two games this season, while Kramaric leads the league in assists with four and has yet to find the back of the net himself. However, he once scored four goals - including a no-look penalty - against Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park.

WELCOME TO MATCHDAY 3!

Yeah, that's right! We've been away for almost an entire week but don't worry, it's finally time for the Bundesliga again and what a game to start with on this Friday evening. It's Borussia Dortmund playing host to Hoffenheim, a game which has been the centre of so many memorable moments in recent years. More are set to be created tonight...

Welcome along!

Here you can find all the information about Dortmund against Hoffenheim on Matchday 3.
