HAALAND SEALS THE DEAL!

Game, set and match. Bellingham shows tremendous tenacity to win back possession and feed Haaland. He makes no mistake with his finish to bring up Bundesliga goal number 49 in as many games. Astounding!

HEL-LO!

Mainz reduce the arrears with three minutes of normal time remaining. Kobel fluffs his clearance - it's picked off by Mainz and helped on to substitute Jonathan Burkardt, who finishes smartly from inside the box with the outside of his right boot. Squeaky-bum time for BVB...

DOUBLE CHANGE

Fresh Dortmund legs as Thorgan Hazard and Marin Pongracic replace Donyell Malen and Mats Hummels. For a moment, it looked like Akanji would be one of the men to make way after he took a blow to the foot.

LOBS IT!

Onisiwo beats the Dortmund offside trap. He shows a lovely piece of control, but is put off by the advancing Kobel and sends his lobbed effort well over.

HAALAND!

Haaland doubles Dortmund's lead from the spot. It's not the best penalty, but Zentner's already gone to his right and can't get enough on it as the ball sails down the middle. That's Haaland's eighth league goal of the campaign.

PENALTY!

Referee Daniel Schlager takes a good while to review a possible handball against Widmer. He flicked up a hand as Haaland tried to lift the ball round him in the box. The decision is a BVB penalty!

AKANJI TO THE RESCUE

Onisiwo tears clear for Mainz. He goes into the box, but Akanji comes from nowhere with sensational sliding challenge.

ADVANTAGE DORTMUND

Marco Reus's goal is the difference at the Signal Iduna Park. Dortmund are good value for their lead, but at 1-0 anything can happen.

DENIED!

Desprately close to a second BVB goal. Malen plays in Haaland, who can't beat Zentner at his near post. He takes on the rebound, but a Mainz player intervenes before the ball can cross the line.

OFF THE LINE!

Danger for Mainz as Reus whips over a free-kick from the BVB left. Zentner doesn't know whether to stay or go, and it's Niakhate with the goal-line clearance. That just needed a touch!

CHANCE WASTED

Mainz make in-roads for the first time. It's three vs. three in the Dortmund box, but Boetius plays the ball behind Onisiwo and the chance is squandered.

CLOSE!

Haaland puts on the after-burners, drawing the Mainz defenders with him. He has the wherewithal to cut a smart ball back to the edge of the box, where Meunier arrives late to side-foot narrowly wide. Zentner probably had it covered.

That belter was Reus' second Bundesliga goal of the current campaign, and his 143rd in all competitions for his boyhood club.

HAALAND ON THE PROWL

Mainz very much on the back-foot as Brandt advances and pings a ball into the six-yard box for Haaland. He stoops to head, but the ball just brushes his blonde locks and the chance is gone.

REUS!!!

Dream start for Dortmund. Meunier's right-wing cross is deflected into the path of Marco Reus on the edge of the box. It's by no means an easy take, but he winds up his left foot and arrows an unstoppable effort into the roof of the net. Superb technique. That's his 14th goal in 21 appearances against Mainz!

HERE WE GO!

The Dortmund players applaud the BVB faithful. The Black-Yellows are all fired up. A win would take them top, overnight at least.

OLD FRIENDS

Marco Rose and Bo Svensson were part of the same Mainz team as players, but only played alongside each other in five Bundesliga 2 matches.

WATCH: ERLING HAALAND: THE PHENOMENON

That Haaland's recent injury-enforced absence negatively impacted on the Borussia Dortmund attack will hardly come as a surprise. The 21-year-old Norwegian striker is a scoring phenomenon of the rarest order, with 47 goals in his 48 league outings for the Black-and-Yellows to date. The latest seven of those were netted in the five games he has played this season and when action resumes after the short international break, Haaland hopes to soon be adding further to that tally.
