It's all over!

Moukoko wins it for Dortmund! How important could that strike be in the title race? Union looked to be on course to snatch an unlikely draw, but the 18-year-old squeezed in a deserved winner for the hosts!

Moukoko drought over

The youngest player ever to reach 50 Bundesliga appearances, doing so today at the age of 18 years and 193 days, Moukoko's goal was his first since 5 November 2022.

Changes abound

Union make two attacking changes as they look to snatch something from the closing stages. Dortmund do the opposite, taking off the more attack-minded Brandt for the defensive shield of Özcan.



Dortmund lead again!

A Dortmund attack appears to have petered out as Reus loses possession on the edge of the area, but Moukoko pounces on the loose ball, goes around Rönnow and squeezes in the shot from a tight angle!

Chance for Reus!

He's only just come on the pitch but he darts into the box down the right. He seems to get caught in two minds between shooting and crossing and the ball rolls across the face of the goal - it just needed a touch to go in!

More changes

Edin Teric wants the win and brings on Marco Reus and Youssoufa Moukoko in a bid to force another goal.

Huge from Guerreiro!

The Portugal international with a crucial intervention to prevent Becker from scoring what looked to be a certain goal!

Fresh legs

No team has scored more than Dortmund's 11 goals from substitutes this season. Bynoe-Gittens has three of those. Can he get another one here?

Over from Süle!

Dortmund go on the attack again straight away and after Brandt's well-struck drive is saved, Süle heads over from the resultant corner.

Well, well, well!

Union finally have a shot on target and it goes in! Behrens wins a long ball forward against Süle, Becker spins Hummels and then lays it off against for Behrens to stroke in his seventh Bundesliga goal of the season!

Union intense

The visitors are trying to find a way back into this game. Behrens and Becker both go into the referee's notebook for overzealous fouls, but coach Fischer will be pleased with their desire.

...Nothing doing

Guerreiro curls in the free-kick but it's headed clear by the first defender.

Haller fouled

Haller does well to hold up a ball from Guerreiro, before being wrestled to the ground. It's given Dortmund a free-kick in a very promising position, about 25 yards out, left of centre...

Nice from Haller

The striker back-heels a ball into Brandt's path but the midfielder's touch is a tad heavy as he tries to sprint clear of the defence, and Union clear.

Here we go again!

Dortmund get the ball rolling in the second half.

Advantage BVB at the break

After a promising start from Union, Dortmund have grown into the game and look in complete control. Malen’s goal is the difference between the sides at the interval but you wouldn’t want to write Union off just yet.

So close!

Another cross from Guerreiro from the left finds Haller at the back post, but his header is well saved by Rönnow.

Intense affair

Union are known for their physicality but Dortmund are more than matching them in that regard today.
Tackles won

Malen on fire

The Dutchman has scored in three consecutive Bundesliga games for the first time ever. All four of his league goals in 2022/23 have come in his last six outings, all since Matchday 21.

Haller has a go

Malen bends a cross into the box from the right. Haller beats Knoche to it and directs a header at goal, but it's a comfortable save from Rönnow.

Over from Guerreiro

Brandt switches play brilliantly with a diagonal ball to Adeyemi, who slots it into Guerreiro's path on the left. There's nobody in the box to aim for so the Portugal international shoots, but narrowly misses the near post.

Dortmund lead!

Guerreiro curls a teasing cross from the left across the face of goal towards the back post. Malen gets there ahead of his marker and sticks out a leg to prod it home from close range!

Can bossing the midifeld

Rejuvenated in recent months and having earned a recall to Germany's national team, Can is dominating the centre of the park.

Doekhi clears

Brandt whips in a dangerous free-kick from the right and Hummels almost gets his head on it, but is beaten to the ball by Doekhi.

No way through

Ryerson does well down the right to make headway before pulling the ball into the middle. Can clips a cross into the box but it's headed away. BVB recycle possession and float another cross in, but the Union defence can deal with those kinds of ball all day.

Goalkeepers untested

Only three shots so far in this game, none of them on target.

Adeyemi booked

The Dortmund attacker's pace again gets him into a good position, this time down the right. He darts into the box and goes past Jaeckel before tumbling... only to see a yellow card for simulation.


It's been 50-50 in terms of challenges won so far in this game. It's a tight one and you get the feeling the first goal will prove decisive.


Juranovic floats a free-kick in from the right but he over-hits it and Kopbel comes off his line to claim easily.

BVB settling

Union enjoyed the better start initially but Dortmund are beginning to find their feet now.

Cross cut out

Adeyemi's pace gives him a little space to work in down the left. His low cross into the box is looking for Haller but it's easily dealt with by the visiting defence.

Hummels heads over

Guerreiro whips in a corner from the left in what is Dortmund's first foray into the Union half. Hummels rises highest but can't direct his header on target.

Union almost in

Becker threads a ball through to Behrens, who goes around Kobel and is tripped. No penalty though, as Behrens was offside. Still, it's a warning for the hosts, who are being forced onto the back foot early doors.

Early yellow

Süle goes into the book inside the first minute for bundling Becker over needlessly. Given Union's strength at set-pieces Dortmund won't want to give away too many free-kicks in their own half.

And we're off!

Super Saturday is underway!

Out on the pitch

The players are on the pitch, shaking hands and stripping off their warm-up attire. We're almost ready to go!

Adeyemi good to go

Karim Adeyemi is making his first competitive Dortmund appearance today since 19 February last, when he tore a muscle fibre against Hertha Berlin. The Germany international will be keen to add to the three goals and two assists he's managed in 16 Bundesliga appearances to date in Black-and-Yellow.

Made in BVB vs Union

Check out some of these thunderthumpers from Dortmund versus Union games gone by! Which one is your favourite?

"Play to our limits"

"This will be a very difficult task for us where we absolutely have to play to our limits and need a top performance." So said Union boss Urs Fischer ahead of today's Super Saturday encounter. The coach also referred to BVB's strengths, saying, "They get into the spaces between their opponents lines well [and are] always provoking mistakes. They always give everything, put in a lot of effort and their switching game is also one of their strong points"

Kobel vs. Rønnow

You get the distinct feeling that one of today's shot-stoppers will have a big part to play in the outcome of today's game. But who will it be: Gregor Kobel or Frederik Rønnow?

"Tweak in order to learn"

Following an incredible run of ten straight wins at the start of 2023, BVB are nursing their wounds somewhat following three defeats in five in all competitions. "We deal with each other openly, honestly and critically," coach Edin Terzic said of the current situation. "We'll take another look at some things we urgently need to change and tweak in order to learn from them and to show a different side to ourselves," he added.

Urs Fischer's side have the chance to do the double over Dortmund after winning the reverse fixture. However, they have lost all three of their previous games at the Signal Iduna Park.

Terzic milestone

This will be Terzic’s 50th Bundesliga game as head coach. Only Pep Guardiola (42) and Hansi Flick (40) have won more of their first 50 matches than Terzic (31). Those two are also the only coaches with a better points-per-game average (Guardiola 2.52, Flick 2.45) than Terzic (2.00), among coaches with as many games.

Form teams

Dortmund (28 points) and Union (24) are the two best sides in the Bundesliga in 2023. BVB have scored the most goals since the turn of the year (32), while Union have conceded the fewest (eight).

Sheraldo Becker ended an 11-game goal drought as Union consolidated third last weekend. Die Eisernen are now on a four-match unbeaten run in the Bundesliga since slipping to a 3-0 defeat at Bayern on Matchday 22. However, they lost 2-0 to Frankfurt in the DFB Cup quarter-finals in midweek.

Watch: Jude Bellingham upbeat

"We will be back!" affirmed Jude Bellingham after the defeat in Munich, citing the nine-point deficit they overturned in the new year.
