ALL OVER

That is that. An emphatic, comfortable victory for Leipzig in their first match under Rose. Dortmund were poor and the hosts deserve what is a comfortable win thanks to goals from Orban, Szoboszlai and Haidara. A great day for RBL, a forgettable one for BVB.

Leipzig neatly tie the bow on a comprehensive victory as Haidara taps home from close range after some seriously poor defending. Werner doesn't have a goal, but he has the assist.

WERNER DUE A GOAL?

Werner has yet to get on the scoresheet today but not for the want of trying. He's stretched Dortmund in behind and had his chances to score. On anoter day, he could have had a couple.

A positive to the end of the game here as Njinmah looks unfazed by making his debut against strong opposition and difficult circumstances. He's rapid and very lively. One to watch, you think.

OVER FROM MODESTE

Reyna shows his class by getting on the outside out on the left and pulling an excellent ball back to Modeste. It's a difficult height to control the volley and, although he hits it hard and true, it flies over and wide.

WERNER DENIED

Werner gets a shot away from the edge of the box but it's straight at Meyer, who parries away. Leipzig still look the more threatening, and by some distance.

DOUBLE DORTMUND CHANGE

You feel like Dortmund could have done this at the break but they've waited 15 minutes or so after no signs of improvement. Moukoko and Reyna on, can the youngsters inject a bit of quality to proceedings?

MODESTE ISOLATED

BVB striker Modeste has been short of service today and left isolated at the top of the Dortmund attack. He's a player that thrives off balls into the box and he's not getting them, while his teammates are struggling to get alongside their striker and play off of him.

NOTHING TOO CLEAR CUT

information
xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
xGoals suggests that there's not been any real obvious chances in front of goal, although Werner should have done a lot better just before Szoboszlai's effort. You can guarantee that the xG of that second will have been low. Belter.

GULACSI GETS A TOUCH

The Leipzig 'keeper has barely had to use his hands so far but he gets a feel for the ball by cutting out Reus' cross. Dortmund's skipper has been quiet today but he came to life there. His team needs more of that from their leader.

PRESSURE ON BVB

As you'd expect, Leipzig are again letting Dortmund have the ball and saying: "What have you got?" Currently, the visitors are a bit short on ideas.

LEIPZIG LOOKING ROSE-Y

The home side are 2-0 to the good at half-time and looking very good for the win in Rose's first game in charge. Orban headed them in front early and Szoboszlai made it 2-0 just before the break with a screamer. Dortmund, meanwhile, have been far from their best and haven't looked at all like scoring.

HOSTS GO 2-0 UP!

Werner misses a golden opportunity one-on-one with Meyer but it doesn't prove a costly miss as, moments later, Szoboszlai hits an absolute rocket from way out into the top corner. A wonderful hit to add to his long highlight collection. Stunning.

WIDE FROM SCHLOTTERBECK

Schlotterbeck and Modeste both rise to meet a corner and a combination of their respective heads flashes the ball wide. A first shot from the visitors at least.

DORTMUND YET TO HAVE A SHOT

They say a picture tells a thousand words and this graphic is certainly damning of Dortmund so far. Not a single shot on goal.

HOSTS TURNING UP THE HEAT

The Leipzig engine is starting to purr as Raum fires at goal but Diallo can only header over as he looks to direct the ball into the net. Forsberg, Nkunku and Werner combine nicely moments later before being crowded out.
33'

WHAT A TACKLE

Wolf has just prevented Leipzig making it 2-0. Dortmund's high line is punished as Werner is slipped through on the halfway mark and races clear on goal. He squares it and it looks as if Szoboszlai will tap home his side's second but Wolf's recovery is remarkable and he nudges it to safety. Superb from Wolf.
30'

MIDFIELD BATTLE UNFOLDING

There's some serious central midfield talent on display today, with Laimer and Schlager on one side and Bellingham and Özcan on the other. There's been some robust, and fair, challenges from both teams and Bellingham is so far topping the chart with most won challenges. You feel that area of the pitch could well decide this contest.

DORTMUND HAVING MOST OF THE BALL

It's the away side who have seen most of the ball, but they're struggling to break Leipzig down when they do have it. It won't surprise people that the home team are happy to let their visitors have possession and then look to utilise Werner's pace on the counter.

WERNER WANTS A PENALTY...

... but he's not getting it. The Germany international breaks clear on the right edge of the box and gets a hand on the back from Özcan just as he's pulling the trigger. The referee doesn't think it was enough to give a penalty and we continue.

DORTMUND CORNER

Yet more good work from Wolf as he turns Schlager inside out and looks for a cutback but wins a corner instead. Brandt takes it but it's well cleared by the head of Nkunku.

DECENT FOOT RACE

There's a great battle going on in behind the Dortmund defence with Werner up against Süle. It's the former who's winning out thus far.

LEIPZIG WARMING UP

It's fair to say that Dortmund were the better team until that goal but it's brought the hosts to life since and they're growing more and more into the game. It's up to Terzic and Dortmund to now come up with an answer for going behind so early.

WOLF WINS A CORNER

Diallo lets the ball run across him and gets himself in all-sorts, which nearly proves costly. Wolf picks the ball up just inside the right of the Leipzig box and wins a corner off Diallo. It comes to nothing, though, to spare the home defender's blushes.

NEW MAN IN THE DUGOUT

Rose has been acknowledging his new club's supporters on his first trip to the Leipzig dugout. It must be said, the home fans look incredible today, with white and red sweeping across the stadium. They'll be hoping their new coach can turn their season around after a faltering start.

10 MINUTES TO KICK-OFF

We're nearly ready to go in Leipzig. Hold on to your hats...

WATCH: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE LAST TIME THEY MET

Rose was in the Dortmund dugout on when these two last met - in April this year and on Matchday 28 of last season. His predecessor, Domenico Tedesco, won out on that occasion as Leipzig were rampant in sealing a 4-1 victory. Nkunku scored one and set up two that day.

WATCH: CRACKING DAY FOR A CRACKING MATCH

The sun is shining on the Red Bull Arena, where we should be in for a belter. Rose making his Leipzig bow against his former club tops plenty of subplots and we have a pair of teams known for their attacking prowess with points to prove. Sounds good, doesn't it?

ROSE MOVES TO 3-4-1-2

Rose's first team selection as Leizpig coach sees an expected move to 3-4-1-2 for Die Roten Bullen. It means Dominik Szoboszlai appears to be in a right wing-back position, while Emil Forsberg sits behind Christopher Nkunku and Timo Werner in attack. Yussuf Poulsen is a welcome sight on the bench after a three month absence through injury.

SÜLE STARTS, HUMMELS AND REYNA ON BENCH

Terzic has kept with summer signings Nico Schlotterbeck and Niklas Süle at the heart of his defence and , with Mats Hummels in reserve. Further forward, Gio Reyna - who impressed in the UEFA Champions League win over Copenhagen in midweek - is still awaiting a first start of the season. Alexander Meyer, 31, kept a clean sheet against Copenhagen and makes his Bundesliga bow in the absence of Gregor Kobel

HOW IT STARTED

These two met for the very first time in their history on Matchday 2 of the 2016/17 campaign. The upstarts, Leipzig, caused an upset that day by claiming their first top-flight victory with a 1-0 victory over one of Germany's most famous clubs.

SET YOUR ALARMS

Kick-off gets underway in the battle between the 12th-placed hosts and second-place visitors at 3.30pm CEST, with team news dropping an hour before that so set your alarms now.

NEW COACH VIBES

Here's what Leipzig's new tactician, Marco Rose, hopes to put right at his team, asap: "We need a lot of energy and power to turn the mood around and start picking up results. That’s what the focus is on now."

CLASSIC ENCOUNTER

There have been some belters between these sides down through the years, like this 3-3 bonanza from back in 2019/20.

BVB GOING STRONG

It's been a solid start for Dortmund under Edin Terzic and the Black-and-Yellow's tactician will be keen to maintain a run that has seen his side win four of their five Bundesliga games to date. That positive sequence has Borussia second in the standings, level on points with leaders Freiburg.

ROSE IN PLACE

Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Borussia Mönchengladbach. What a start for new Leipzig coach Marco Rose to contemplate, the 45-year-old having accepted the challenge to replace the outgoing Domenico Tedesco at the Die Roten Bullen helm. First up for Leipzig's new man is a game against one of his former sides, BVB.

COLOSSAL CLASH

What a game we have for you on Matchday 6 of the Bundesliga! When Leipzig meet Dortmund, on-field sparks tend to fly and we're expecting things to be no different here. Settle in!
