WATCH: GIO REYNA ON JUDE BELLINGHAM
NARTEY HAS A GO
The Stuttgart substitute shoots at goal, more out of hope than expectation, aiming for a consolation. It was never going to trouble Kobel though.
WINDING DOWN THE CLOCK
The result is all but confirmed now and Dortmund's players have taken their foot off the pedal to conserve energy.
PERSONAL BEST FOR MOUKOKO
The 17-year-old is now Dortmund's leading scorer in the Bundesliga this term with four goals, which also represents his best-ever single-season tally.
Bellingham dissects the VfB defence to find Guerreiro's run and the left-back squares the ball across the face of goal to give the unmarked Moukoko a simple tap-in at the back post.
GUERREIRO GOES CLOSE!
The Portugal international curls a brilliant free-kick over the wall. It's heading for the top corner but Müller dives at full stretch to palm it clear!
RECORD IN SIGHT FOR TERZIC
The BVB's coach's biggest win at the helm so far was a 4-0 success away at Schalke on 20 February 2021.
Dortmund should not even have two goals right now, according to the xG expected goals metric. When you can blast the stats out of the water like they have done, you must be doing something pretty special!

MAVROPANOS OFF THE LINE!
Reyna darts into the box on the left and pulls a low cross back across goal. Moukoko receives it, turns his marker brilliantly with a Cruyff turn and gets a shot away. It's deflected and lopps up, just giving Mavropanos enough time to scamper back and clear off the line!
TWO FOR BELLINGHAM!
He hadn't managed a Bundesliga goal all season and now he has two! The England international collects a pass from Schlotterbeck on the left, dances past a couple of challenges and then curls a sumptuous shot into the top corner. Sensational!
WIDE FROM MOUKOKO
Reyna touches the ball back to Moukoko, lurking in a central position just outside the VfB area. He drags his left-footed effort well wide though.
UNDER WAY AGAIN
Dortmund get the match going once more.
BVB have been very good so far today, both in terms of keeping Stuttgart at bay - they've only managed one shot on target - as well as being clinical at the other end. Bellingham set the tone in the second minute with his early strike, while further efforts from Süle and Reyna have put them very much in control of this game.
This is a lovely finish from Reyna. Brandt slides the ball forward to Moukoko, who in turn feeds it to Reyna, arriving in the left-hand side of the box. The USA international takes a touch to control it before curling a brilliant shot into the far corner!
Distance run (km)
ADEYEMI HAS A GO
Brandt spies Adeyemi in space and plays a nice ball forward. The Germany international jinks inside Sosa and gets a shot away but it's straight at Müller, who collects comfortably.
The Croatian curls in a deep free-kick from the right towards the back post but Süle, who's seemingly everywhere today, gets there first and heads clear.
SÜLE LOVING IT
Playing at right-back today, Süle has clearly enjoyed the taste of contributing to goals as he trots forward again. He's allowed space to receive the ball on the right-hand corner of the penalty area before cutting inside onto his left and getting a shot away that Müller gets down to save.
Mavropanos launches a long throw into the Dortmund box from the right but Kobel takes command of the situation and comes off his line to collect before any danger can arise.
Stuttgart struggle to clear their lines in a crowded box and both Bellingham and Adeyemi have shots blocked before the away side can eventually hoof it to safety.

SÜLE DOUBLES BVB'S LEAD!
Guerreiro ends up taking the free-kick - Brandt was just the dummy - and it's a devilish delivery into the box the Süle meets on the volley, side-footing in from eight yards. That's a goal and an assist already for the defender in this game!
Millot brings down the marauding Reyna about 30 yards from goal, left of centre. Brandt is standing over the ball to take it...
EARLIEST GOAL OF THE SEASON

MAVROPANOS GOES CLOSE
He may be a centre-back but Mavropanos shows great skill on the edge of the Dortmund box to control the ball, flick it past Schlotterback and smash a shot at goal that whistles narrowly over!
WHAT A START!
Dortmund go on the front foot straight away and work the ball brilliantly from left to right across the Stuttgart penalty box. Bellingham lays it out wide to Süle on the right and then darts into the area to collect the return ball and slot in his first Bundesliga goal of the season!
HERE WE GO!
Stuttgart get the ball rolling at Signal Iduna Park!
STUTTGART UP AND RUNNING
Silas was the driving force behind those maiden three points with two goals and an assist in Michael Wimmer's first game in temporary charge following the dismissal of Pellegrino Matarazzo. He was on target again in Wednesday's morale-boosting 6-0 hammering of Arminia Bielefeld in the DFB Cup, a game that Zagadou sat out. The French defender is rated as doubtful for a return in time for the weekend, while Serhou Guirassy and Atakan Karazor are also available again after serving one-match bans last time out.

Captain Marco Reus returned from injury in last week's 2-0 defeat to leaders Union Berlin but missed the meeting with second-tier Hannover after reportedly suffering a setback. It remains to be seen, meanwhile, whether Anthony Modeste and Marius Wolf can overcome infections in time to bolster Terzic's options.
That cup win notwithstanding, things have gone slightly awry of late with Dortmund picking up just one point - in Der Klassiker at home to Bayern Munich - from the last three Bundesliga outings. BVB start the weekend down in eighth - seven points off the summit but only one short of the top four - and with a negative goal difference.
