SCENES

A moment of pure joy for Bochum as they clinch what surely must be their greatest win over Borussia Dortmund in the club's history.

WHAT A GAME

That was an absolute joy to watch, unless you were a Dortmund fan. Bochum raced in front, taking a two-goal lead after just eight minutes before Erling Haaland hit a hat-trick to put the hosts in front but the away side wouldn't be finished off. Instead, they claimed all three points as Locadia and Pantovic made it 4-3 in their favour. A quite stunning game of football that secures Bochum's safety and means Dortmund must wait to be confirmed as runners-up.

BOCHUM BACK IN FRONT

Have Bochum stolen all three points? They do receive a penalty this time - again for handball - and Pantovic plants it into the back of the net to make it 4-3. With five minutes to hold on, can they do it? You feel like this game still has goals in it...

IMPRESSIVE FULL DEBUT

Bynoe-Gittens is removed shortly after Dortmund take the lead and the teenager can be very pleased with his work today. His ball to Reus in the lead-up to the third was a particularly impressive pre-assist and, clearly, this lad has a very bright future ahead.

A lovely move from Dortmund results in Bellingham cushioning the ball into Haaland's path but the Norwegian's left-footed strike is well saved by Riemann. The Bochum 'keeper is having a great game.

ALL LEVEL AT HALF TIME

Well, what a half of football. Bochum raced into an early two-goal lead with goals from Polter and Holtmann but two Haaland penalties - both for VAR-spotted handballs in the box - pulled Dortmund level. It's been a great watch so far and we can now catch our breath a little before what promises to be a thrilling second half in the "little Revierderby".

POLTER HEADS OVER

Bochum are ending the half strongly and Polter is presented with a chance from a corner out on the right but his header - from about the penalty spot - flies over the bar.

Pass Efficiency
Pass Efficiency compares the number of successful passes with the number of passes expected to find another teammate. For this, every pass receives an AI-calculated probability to be a successful one. If a player has a positive Pass Efficiency value, he has brought more passes to his teammates than predicted.

EXCELLENT SAVE

Dortmund have had their foot on the throttle since Haaland's penalty and Reus is the man that this time should have equalised. Riemann comes off his line quickly to meet the Dortmund captain and parries over the bar but if Reus puts it either side of the 'keeper then it's 2-2. Bochum looking exposed suddenly.

SPOT ON FROM HAALAND

BOCHUM IN DREAMLAND

What a start this has been from Bochum. Yes, Dortmund haven't been up to speed, but give Bochum credit - the visitors have been pitch perfect so far and deserve their lead.

WHAT. A. GOAL

Bochum are absolutely flying at the Signal Iduna Park and are now 2-0 up inside eight minutes. Holtmann is fed by Asano on the left edge of the Dortmund box and the former curls a sumptuous finish past Hitz and into the far corner to double the visitors' lead. Gorgeous finish.

THE NUMBERS BEHIND MATCHDAY 2000

It's the Bundesliga's 2,000th Matchday in the league's history this weekend and we've been crunching the numbers in the lead-up to the milestone...

HOW HIGH (OR LOW) CAN BOCHUM FINISH?

As for Bochum, they've been on the slide in recent weeks but they are still just four points off the top half with three games to play. They're still not mathematically safe but with an eight-point gap to VfB Stuttgart in the promotion/relegation playoff place, they could make sure of their Bundesliga place for 2022/23 by avoiding defeat today.

SECOND PLACE UP FOR GRABS

Dortmund's title hopes were ended last time out as Bayern Munich eased to Der Klassiker victory - and the Meisterschale - with a 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena, but dortmund can claim the runners-up spot for their own with a positive outcome here. Rose will be hoping his side can do just that and immediately turn their attentions to overthrowing Bayern next term.

FIRST START FOR BYNOE-GITTENS

Whatever happens come the full-time whistle, it will be a day to remember for 17-year-old Englishman Jamie Bynoe-Gittens who makes his first Bundesliga start today. Bynoe-Gittens has made two cameos in Dortmund's previous two outings and now gets the chance from the off as coach Marco Rose continues to cope with a long injury list.

REIS OPTS FOR POLTER

The inclusion of Bochum top-scorer Sebastian Polter is one of four changes made by the visitors as they look to arrest a three game run without either a goal or a victory. Erhan Masovic, Herbert Bockhorn and Milos Pantovic are the three other players brought into the side from the one that lost to Augsburg last time out.
