Full time: Wolfsburg 1-1 Dortmund

It's a fifth draw of 2024 for Wolfsburg, while Dortmund remain unbeaten since the turn of the year. A draw is probably a fair result on the balance of play following a much-improved second-half performance from the home side.

Over from Brandt

The Dortmund midfielder takes it and gets the ball over the wall but just can't get enough dip on it, and it whistles narrowly over the bar.

Last chance for Dortmund

Bynoe-Gittens is brought down by Baku right on the edge of the box, giving Dortmund a free-kick and a chance to grab a late winner.
90'

Opening for Dortmund!

Brandt clips a lovely ball over the Wolfsburg defence for Süle, arriving at the back post on the right. He volleys it across the face of goal, with Ryerson and Sabitzer arriving, but it's just too strong for either of them to get a touch.

Seven added minutes

The interruptions in the second half mean there will be another seven minutes of stoppage time played.
90'

Over from Sabitzer

Lovely work from Bynoe-Gittens, darting down the left and cutting inside Baku before pulling the ball back for Sabitzer. He strikes it with his weaker left foot and is leaning back slightly, so the ball flies over the bar.

Welcome back!

Lukas Nmecha has been out of action for almost a year with a serious knee injury, but makes his comeback here. The last time the forward was in a Bundesliga matchday squad was on 12 March 2023 against Union Berlin.

Second of the season

Gerhardt, pictured centrally, celebrated his second goal of 2023/24. It was his first goal as a substitute for almost nine years, having last found the net off the bench while playing for Cologne against Schalke. It was also only the second header Wolfsburg have scored this term.

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).
Wolfsburg should be in front by now, according to the stats so Gerhardt's equaliser was a long time coming.

Wolfsburg level!

Dortmund struggle to clear a corner from the right. There's pinball inside the box and when the ball loops up off Reus following Arnold's header, Gerhardt arrives to nod in the equaliser from close range.

Baku!

A great hit from the Wolfsburg right-back but Kobel is equal to it, tipping the ball out for a corner.

The match has restarted, with Wolfsburg hogging the ball for a while and pegging Dortmund back inside their own half.

What it means

Kobel hasn't had a great deal to do so far today but he has made a couple of decent saves to preserve his side's lead.
49'

Sabitzer has a go!

Nice work from Sancho on the left and the the ball is worked to a central position, where Sabitzer is lurking. The Austria international shoots from 25 yards, but Casteels makes a good save to tip it over.
46'

Here we go again!

Wolfsburg get the ball rolling once more. Only one change at the break as Gerhardt comes on for Svanberg, who was the hosts' main driving force in attack in the first half.
Kick-off!
Half-time
45'
+ 12

Half-time: Wolfsburg 0-1 Dortmund

Dortmund have a narrow lead at the break, and it's just about deserved. The hosts were the better side early on but Füllkrug's goal shifted momentum Dortmund's way, and they remained on top for much of the half. However, VfL grew into the game shortly before the interval and have had chances to equalise, notably through Paredes and Behrens.
45'
+ 10

Behrens again!

Another chance for the Wolfsburg forward as he's slipped through behind the Dortmund defence. He goes around Kobel and shoots from a tight angle but can only hit the side netting.
45'
+ 9

Off the post!

Almost the equaliser! Brilliant play down the right ends with Behrens tearing into the box and getting a shot away. Kobel makes a fine save though, getting his arm to the ball to deflect it onto the post.
45'
+ 8

Ryerson to the rescue!

Wolfsburg again make headway down the right through Svanberg. He cuts the ball back, looking for Wind in the middle, but Ryerson is alive to the danger and gets a toe there ahead of the Wolves attacker to clear the ball.

Scrappy

The game has become something of a midfield battle of late, with neither goalkeeper called into action very often.
45'
+ 4

Brilliant block!

Svanberg breaks down the right and has three players waiting in the box for his cross. Schlotterbeck throws himself to ground though, blocking the ball out for a corner and preventing what would almost certainly have been a clear chance for the home side.

Mr. 1-0

Chance for Paredes!

The American youngster must equalise here! Svanberg whips a cross from the right into the middle. Paredes shows great determination to get ahead of Ryerson but he can't direct his free header on target from the edge of the six-yard box. A glorious chance for Wolfsburg.
26'

Dangerous position

Dortmund win a free-kick in a central position, about 30 yards out. Reus pulls rank to take it, but shanks his effort well over the bar.
24'

Teasing delivery

Wolfsburg get forward on an increasingly rare counter-attack. Paredes curls an inviting cross into the box, looking for Wind, but Kobel reads the danger and plucks it out of the air.
22'

Ryerson has a pop

A nice move from Dortmund down the right. The ball is pulled back and a couple of Dortmund players are queuing up to hit it. Ryerson gets there first but his low drive is straight at Casteels.

Dortmund lead!

It's against the run of play but BVB are in front. Sabitzer pings a diagonal ball from right to left for Reus, whose low shot across goal is saved by Casteels. The rebound bobbles up and hits Füllkrug, who pokes in from close range. Not the prettiest of goals, but Dortmund won't care one bit.

Bright start from the Wolves

Malen the man

The Dutch attacker netted a double for Dortmund in last weekend's win against Freiburg, meaning he now stands on nine Bundesliga goal for the campaign. That equal's Malen's best German top-flight return, which he managed last season.

Tough nuts to crack

The Wolves will have their work cut out trying to knock BVB off their solid run of late. Saturday's visitors to the Volkswagen Arena are technically top of the 2024 standings having picked up 13 points (four wins and a draw) in the year to date.

The view from Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac: "The team is alive [and] no one is giving up, quite the contrary. In football you need that little bit of luck which we don't have at the moment."
camera-photo

The view from Dortmund

Edin Terzic, BVB coach: "Wolfsburg are not having an easy moment but that said, they have a very good team. There have been a lot of draws in their last nine games, which suggests that they were close encounters. Our goal remains to concede fewer goals. If we combine positional discipline with good quality in our game, the prospect of success is high."
