Full-time: Dortmund 2-3 Leipzig

Dortmund have a late penalty appeal waved away, and that's it! Leipzig hold on to go four points clear of BVB in fourth place. The Black-Yellows - hindered by Mats Hummels' first-half red card - are also some 10 points behind leaders Leverkusen, who go to Stuttgart tomorrow.

So close from the Dortmund defender, who sees a goal-bound shot deflected agonisingly wide.

Leipzig seal it!

That's it! Sesko wins back the ball in his own half to kick-start a three-on-two attack. He shifts it to his left for Forsberg, who slides a pass back across the area for Poulsen. The Dane sells Schlotterbeck a dummy and drives beyond Kobel. Great finish!

Chance not taken

Malen gets himself into a good position on the left-hand side of the Leipzig box, but opts to shoot rather than pass to a man in the middle and blazes over.
87'

Dortmund in possession

BVB are ending the game strongly. Can they turn their possession into a late leveller?
85'

Kobel again!

Dortmund's No1. keeps his side in the game with another big save, this one with his left foot from Sesko.
83'

Changes

Former BVB midfielder Kampl replaces the industrious Haidara for Leipzig, before BVB hook two full-backs in favour of attacking duo Reyna and Malen.
80'

Close!

Brandt whips in a free-kick from the left that's touched just wide of the near post by Sesko's outstretched leg. Set-pieces might be BVB's best route back...
79'

Half chance!

Poulsen crosses for Sesko, who can only head straight at Kobel.
77'

Crucial intervention!

Poulsen sends Sesko on his way. He manages to get the ball out from under his feet, but Özcan slides in to block the eventual shot. That could have been curtains for the hosts.
76'

Triple change

Two centre-forwards in Poulsen and Sesko, as well as attacking midfielder Forsberg. Can Leipzig put this one to bed?
74'

No penalty!

Adeyemi takes on Simakan, going to ground on his way into the penalty box, but the referee waves the BVB sub to his feet.
73'

Kobel to the rescue!

Kobel drops to his left to parry a shot from Raum. Baumgartner's rebound then hits the post and goalkeeper before being cleared.
71'

BVB switch

Adeyemi replaces Reus for Dortmund, who desperately need a spark in attack. He's certainly got the pace to trouble this Leipzig defence...
70'

Denied!

Süle is at full stretch to stop Raum's pass finding the unmarked Openda in the BVB penalty area.
67'

Openda into the book

It's all turned a bit scrappy as Openda gets a ticking off for pulling back Meunier.

The state of play

Leipzig are heading for their fourth away win of the Bundesliga season (D0, L3). Crucially, Rose's team will move four points clear of fifth-placed Dortmund, if they can see it out...

Bookings

Özcan is booked after catching Simakan late. Xavi is then penalised for not backing off from a Dortmund free-kick. Three players on a yellow card now - Simakan is the other.

Leipzig retake the lead!

Leipzig's numerical advantage tells! Baumgartner bursts forward, laying the ball off for Xavi and continuing his run. The Leipzig playmaker cuts inside of Süle and forces a diving save from Kobel, who can only parry into the path of Baumgartner for a routine tap-in.

Dortmund equalise!

BVB's late surge pays! Blaswich punches the initial corner out to the edge of the box, where it's switched back out to Brandt. His cross evades everyone in the box, before being met by Süle's right-footed finish at the far post.

Özcan OK

Özcan is back on after colliding with Schlager. For a moment there, Dortmund were defending with eight outfield players. Disaster averted.
43'

Offside!

Openda is played through by a flicked pass on halfway. He's clearly offside, though the flag only goes up after Kobel gets down to his left to push the Leipzig forward's effort round his post.

Set-piece threat

Another Raum corner from the right comes in. It's flicked on at the near post, before BVB smuggle clear.

Last-ditch defending

Reus races back to stop Xavi doing more damage in the box after a jinking run to the by-line. It's been one-way traffic since Hummels was sent off.

Flash point

Hummels can have no complaints - Openda was through with only the keeper to beat.

Haidara!

Haidara has a crack this time, with Kobel pushing the ball over the bar. The resultant corner's played short to Schlager, who misfires from range.

Süle takes up the central defensive position vacated by Hummels. Bynoe-Gittens, whose pace in the transition is such a boon for Dortmund, gets the hook. Needs must.

Who is Paris Brunner?

Eagle eyes among you may have noticed a new name on the Dortmund bench. Paris Brunner makes his senior matchday squad debut, fresh from helping Germany win the U17 World Cup. The 17-year-old forward also picked up the Fritz Walter award as the best German player in his age group earlier this year. He has scored 10 goals in eight U19s league matches so far this term.

More on those teams

Marcel Sabiter, Julian Ryerson, Marius Wolf and Youssoufa Moukoko are all out after picking up injuries in the DFB Cup loss to Stuttgart. Thomas Meunier and Ramy Bensebaini start in the full-back positions, while Marco Reus, Julian Brandt and Niclas Füllkrug are recalled to the starting line-up. Karim Adeyemi drops to the bench. Leipzig, meanwhile, show one change to the team that beat Heidenheim in the Bundesliga last weekend. Castello Lukeba returns in defence, with centre-forward Yussuf Poulsen making way. Benjamin Henrichs moves up to the right-hand side of midfield, with defender Mohamed Simakan stepping out to right-back and Loïs Openda the lone striker.

Terzić's view on Leipzig

"We have a tough match ahead of us. We know their strengths, and what we need to do better after the Stuttgart game. We made far too many mistakes and lost the ball in key areas. We can't do that against Leipzig."
camera-photo

Rose's view on Dortmund

"Stuttgart played really well against them in the DFB Cup. So we're expecting to come up against a different BVB side, especially considering the pressure they're under to perform. We're going to have to be really switched on. I think that their players are feeling a bit annoyed with themselves. We can expect a real fight from the get-go. We'll have to deal with their pace, attacking dynamism and quality. That's why it'll be important to try and play the way we want to."

Wounded Dortmund

BVB picked up a positive result with their 1-1 draw in Leverkusen last weekend, but spirits were dampened on Wednesday when they were outplayed and outclassed by a vibrant VfB Stuttgart side in the DFB Cup round of 16, with Dortmund exiting the competition on the back of a 2-0 defeat.

Goals guaranteed

Leipzig have only failed to score in one of their 13 league games this season. Dortmund have scored in all theirs. None of the pair's 16 competitive meetings have ended goalless.
