UNION WIN AGAIN!

They've only gone and done it! Union beat Dortmund to cement top spot. Haberer's first-half brace is the difference. Die Eisernen are now seven points clear of BVB and Bayern, who are about to kick off at home to second-placed Freiburg.

CLOSE!

Hazard gets to the byline and sends a low cross into the six-yard box. Reus makes his move, but it sails under his outstretched boot and out to safety. Sums up their afternoon...

FRESH LEGS

Three games without a Bundesliga goal for Becker, but he's more than a taker of chances. The Surinamese forward caused BVB real problems with his direct running. He and the industrious Schäfer make way. Pantovic and Leweling are on as Fischer uses up his remaining substitutes.

ALL OR NOTHING

Reyna is the seventh attacking midfielder or forward on the pitch for Dortmund as Ronnow blocks a shot from Moukoko. Hummels goes to ground, jockeying for the loose ball with Knoche. There'll be no VAR check, though.

MOUKO-NO!

This is much more like it from Dortmund as Hummels - in the right-back position - flashes a cross into the box. Moukoko controls and spins Knoche, before forcing Ronnow into evasive action at his near post. Strong save!
77'

CHANCE!

Reus, Brandt, Reus - delays the shot, is forced wide, and Ronnow's out to block at his near post. Perhaps should have taken that earlier. Hope for BVB, though - that's the first time they've really troubled the Union defence.

Union have given precious little away in terms of clear-cut chances. Fischer has his team so well drilled.

MOUKOKO!

The 17-year-old flashes a shot wide, before firing at Ronnow on the turn. Just a sign from Dortmund in the last couple of minutes. It was on this ground Moukoko became the Bundesliga's youngest scorer, aged 16 and 28 days, with a consolation goal back on 18 December 2020.

Haberer now has three goals for the season, and 15 all told. This is his first brace, though.

Jordan's played into the BVB box. The American's about to shoot, when Schlotterbeck slides in to toe the ball to safety. The visitors are all at sea.

HABERER AT THE DOUBLE!

Nothing Kobel can do about this one. Becker pings a ball in towards Becker, who has his back to goal. He lays it off to Haberer, who drives a first-time effort into the bottom corner from 20 yards. BVB have a mountain to climb.

IT'S A GIFT!

Oh, Gregor! Dortmund's goalkeeper slips on the edge of his six-yard area as he goes to clear a back-pass. He can't regain his footing quickly enough, and Haberer has the simple task of slotting into the unguarded net. Absolute nightmare.

NO HE CAN'T!

What a chance! Dortmund break at speed, shifting the ball from left to right. I gets caught under Bellingham's boot, but he manages to help it on to Meunier. The cross is a peach - Can gets up and under it and heads over. Free header - should have scored.

Union's talisman runs inside and sees a shot blocked, before rifling the follow-up over. Lively start in the capital!

TOO HOT TO HANDLE!

Bit of ring rust from Kobel, who only returned from injury in midweek. He fumbles a shot from Schäfer, before Hummels intervenes to stop Becker getting on the end of the rebound.

DORTMUND GENERAL

Bellingham leads the pre-match fist bumps. He's not wearing the armband today, but don't doubt it - the 19-year-old is a proper chief.

CAULDRON OF NOISE

The Union fans are in fine voice as the teams assemble in the tunnel. There's no place like the Alten Försterei.

MARCO REUS, SAY HELLO !

Marco Reus has recovered from his ankle ligament injury and is back in the BVB squad for the first time since September 17 (the 1-0 Revierderby win against Schalke). That date was also when Gio Reyna last played in the Bundesliga. The USMNT international - who, like Reus is on the bench here - picked up some game time in the Champions League during the week.

UNION TEAM NEWS

Just the two changes to Urs Fischer's starting XI compared to the side that began the midweek victory against Malmo in the Europa League. Baumgartl and Schäfer come in for Jaeckel and Haraguchi.

BVB TEAM NEWS

BVB show four changes to the side that started the aforementioned Champions League draw against Sevilla. Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro, Can and Moukoko are all in from the start for Die Schwarzgelben while Rothe, Brandt and Malen drop to the bench. Modeste misses out altogether with an illness.

KOBEL'S BUNDESLIGA RETURN

Dortmund keeper Gregor Kobel - who featured in BVB's 1-1 draw against Sevilla in the week - is back to play his first Bundesliga game since Matchday 5. The visiting shot stopper has fully recovered from his back and muscular issues that have kept him sidelined.

LAST TIME OUT

Union bounced back from a loss against Eintracht Frankfurt with a 1-0 win at Stuttgart last weekend. It's that victory, sealed by Paul Jaeckel's 76th minute header, that has today's hosts two-points clear at the top of the standings,

UNION'S DEAD-BALL DANGER

BVB boss Edin Terzic, meanwhile, spoke of today's hosts being, "Very effective and creative in dead-ball situations," while the tactician also pointed out that, "The atmosphere within the [Berlin] set-up is very good." "Everyone [at Union] knows their role," Terzic added.

FISCHER WARY OF BVB THREAT

While sharing his thoughts on today's encounter against Die Schwarzgelben, Urs Fischer said, “I see Dortmund as very solid. They don't give up and fight to the end. In addition, they have a good mix of on-field solutions and pace down the flanks."

SUPER SUNDAY PART I

Leaders Union face fourth-placed Dortmund, before Bayern host Freiburg. That's the pre-Matchday 10 top four all in action over what's set to be a gripping afternoon of Bundesliga football. Stay tuned!
