Frankfurt threaten once more

Dina Ebimbe scuffs a shot around the penalty spot after the ball is cut back to him, and it runs out to Götze, who slides it just wide. You woudn't want to rule out another goal falling in this crazy encounter...

Brandt brings Dortmund level again!

Yet another twist! Adeyemi puts on the turbo boost to race with the ball down the left flank and hit it across to Brandt, who runs in well to turn it in on his first touch from close range.

Familiar pattern

The game has fallen back into what we saw when Frankfurt had the lead for most of the first half - the hosts dropping back and Dortmund trying to combine their way through them. It'll be fascinating to see how that plays out in the final phase.

Pass me that armband...

We've seen everything in this match now - the latest being a short break as the officials spot that no Dortmund player has a captain's armband! Substitute Süle eventually puts an armband on and we can continue.

Chaïbi puts Frankfurt back in front!

The latest twist in this compelling encounter sees Frankfurt retake the lead. Chaïbi has been impressive today and the summer signing gets his first Bundesliga goal at a perfect time with a tidy finish after Skhiri played it out to him on the right.

Marmoush almost in for a hat-trick

Füllkrug has a header saved by Trapp at one end and again Frankfurt go right down the other to threaten. Chaïbi sends an enticing ball in from the right for Marmoush right in front of goal, but Maier flies out to block him - VAR is checking if this is a possible penalty.
32'

Füllkrug heads wide

Dortmund are hoping to get a goal back before half-time, no doubt, but Frankfurt are defending deeply and making life tough for them. Reus tries to thread a pass through to Füllkrug that loops in the air and the Germany international striker meets it with his head but sends it wide.

First start since February for Reyna

The American is back in the Dortmund starting line-up for the first time since an away trip to Werder Bremen on 11 February (a 2-0 win) having made three substitute appearances so far this season.

More on that Frankfurt team

With Eintracht picking up form - taking three wins in a row in all competitions - there is just one change to the side that took an impressive 3-1 win at Hoffenheim last weekend. It's a welcome one too, with dependable goalkeeper Kevin Trapp recalled by Dino Toppmöller.

More on that Dortmund team

A couple of surprises in the Dortmund XI. There is no Felix Nmecha, as the winning goalscorer in Newcastle has a muscular injury, while Emre Can is also out after having an injury problem. Gregor Kobel takes the captain's armband, while Gio Reyna starts - with in-form Julian Brandt on the bench having been kept out of action in Newcastle due to a calf complaint.

Frankfurt starting XI:

Trapp (c) - Tuta, Koch, Pacho - Buta, Larsson, Skhiri, Max – Knauff, Chaïbi – Marmoush

Frankfurt subs:

Grahl, Smolčić, Hasebe, Nkounkou, Jakić, Chandler, Dina Ebimbe, Götze, Hauge

Dortmund starting XI:

Kobel (c) - Wolf, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Bensebaini - Özcan, Sabitzer - Malen, Reus, Reyna – Füllkrug

Dortmund subs:

Meyer, Haller, Moukoko, Brandt, Meunier, Süle, Ryerson, Adeyemi

Dortmund's anniversary

Today will be Dortmund's 1909th Bundesliga fixture. For a club founded in 1909, that number is pretty special.

A Trapp for Dortmund

If Dortmund are to take anything away with them today, they have to find a way past this man - and that is easier said than done. Kevin Trapp has saved 85 per cent of the shots on his goal this season - more than any other goalkeeper in the Bundesliga.

Can Niclas Füllkrug find the back of the net ahead of his Klassiker debut?

Building momentum

Terzić saw his side pick up a much-needed win in the UEFA Champions League at Newcastle in midweek and, as they edge towards Der Klassiker next weekend, he does not want to see any let-up in his side. "We need to keep things going the way we have been in recent weeks and hopefully improve our league position with a win," he said.

Edin Terzić on a new-look Frankfurt

One year to the day since last travelling to face Frankfurt, Dortmund will face an almost unrecognisable opponent today. "They've sold a lot of important players and changed their coach," he said. "Dino Toppmöller's taken over and they've needed a few weeks to adapt, but if you look at their more recent results and performances, then you can see things are coming together for them."
camera-photo

Toppmöller's view on Dortmund

"Dortmund have great attacking players, good patterns of play, pace on the wings and a striker in Füllkrug who has a good knack of finding space. We want to counter all that with high intensity. It's the perfect game for us to find out where we are as a group. I’m sensing great excitement in the camp. Everyone’s really up for it. Dortmund are a top side and it's a real challenge for us.”
