PROMISING ATTACK

Bynoe-Gittens wins the ball in midfield and it's worked to Brandt, who slots a clever ball into the path of Moukoko. He jinks into the box and tries to find a way past two defenders but is ultimately crowded out.
79'

DORTMUND OUT OF SORTS

Terzic's side have struggled to click in these last few minutes and they're not making any serious headway in the final third at present. The good news is that they're managing to keep Valencia' at arm's length at the other end too.

FIRST SÜLE PIC

The match and the result may not be panning out as they would like, but among the positives today is a maiden outing in a BVB jersey for summer arrival Süle.
71'

WIDE FROM SOLER

Marcos Andre makes a nuisance of himself on the left and cuts the ball back into the middle for Soler, who miscues his first-time shot and sees it roll harmlessly wide of the far post.
69'

DRINK BREAK

It's a hot one in the Austrian town of Altach, so there's another refreshment break for the players.
66'

FREE-KICK FOR VALENCIA

Conceding those two goals in quick succession has left BVB looking somewhat ragged. They concede a free-kick just outside their own box, right of centre. Soler hit the post from a similar position earlier, but this time the ball goes straight into the all.
63'

GUEDES WITH A STUNNER

Valencia work the ball forward well down the right and a cross into the middle finds Guedes unmarked at the back post. He takes a touch to settle himself before rifling an unstoppable shot into the top corner from 16 yards.

GOAL!

VALENCIA LEAD AGAIN!

The Spanish side have their noses in front again. Hummels goes into a challenge with Soler inside the BVB box somewhat half-heartedly and allows the attacker to advance. He spies Marcos Andre to hie right and the forward has a simple tap-in.

NO MISTAKE FROM REUS

The Dortmund skipper takes the spot-kick, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way and placing the ball calmly into the right-hand side of the goal.

PENALTY TO DORTMUND!

Bynoe-Gittens, who made his Bundesliga debut at the end of last season, is too fast for the Valencia defence and he's tripped inside the box!
48'

VALENCIA CHANGES

Centre-backs Gabriel and Mosquera were both taken off at the break. Cömert and Diakhaby take their places.
48'

DORTMUND SUBS

Schlotterbeck, Meunier, Guerreiro, Bellingham, Adeyemi and Hazard have all left the pitch. Süle, Passlack, Aning, Bynoe-Gittens, Brandt and Wolf are all on for the second half.
46'

UNDER WAY AGAIN

The action has resumed and both teams have made a number of changes at the break. We'll bring you confirmation of those shortly.
Kick-off!

BVB BEHIND

It's been a lively encounter so far, with Reus, Moukoko and Adeyemi looking good going forward. Dortmund have created a number of presentable chances but haven't been able to take advantage, giving Valencia the lead after their well-worked counter just before the interval.
Half-time
41'

VALENCIA LEAD!

A textbook counter-attack has picked BVB apart. From a Dortmund corner, Valencia break forward down the right and the move ends with Castillejo laying the ball off for Guedes, arriving on the edge of the box. He strikes it first time and it takes a big deflection off a defender, leaving Kobel wrong-footed.
40'

Goncalo Guedes

GOAL!

HUMMELS HEADER!

Guerreiro whips in a free-kick from the left and finds Hummels about 12 yards out. His glancing header is going in but the goalkeeper is alert to the danger and makes a save.
33'

GUEDES HAS A GO

A high ball into the BVB area finds Guedes, but his first-time effort lands on the roof of the net.

DRINK BREAK

Players from both sides head to the touchline for a drink.
23'

JUST WIDE FROM MOUKOKO!

The teenager receives a through-ball as he charges into the Valencia box. He shows quick feet as he cuts onto his right cut, creating a pocket of space for himself to shoot, but the ball rolls narrowly wide of the far post.
21'

DORTMUND HIT THE BAR!

Hazard charges down the left and cuts the ball back into the middle, Reus strikes it with his right foot but it loops up onto the bar. It bounces out to Hazard at the back post, but his low drive is well saved. The Belgian reacts to the rebound and crosses into the middle, but Guerreiro fires off target.
17'

ADEYEMI PRESSING

The striker's pace looks like it'll be a real asset this season. The 20-year-old is harrying defenders with BVB's high press, visibly making them nervous.
13'

MOUKOKO TURNS ON THE STYLE

Driving in from the left win Moukoko shows great pace and control to skip away from his markers, but his final touch his too heavy and allows a defender to nip in and clear the danger.
10'

SOLER HITS THE POST!

Valencia win a free-kick just outside the Dortmund box, right of centre. It's ideal for a left-footer to take and Soler duly takes it. His strike goes over the wall and has Kobel scrambling to his left, but it hits the outside of the upright and bounces clear!
7'

DORTMUND'S FIRST ATTEMPT

A nice Dortmund attack down the left culminates with the ball sitting up nicely for Guerreiro, who smashes a strike at goal. It's too central though, and goalkeeper Mamardashvili keeps it out.
5'

FIRST SHOT OF THE GAME

Guedes has the first sight of goal but his effort lacks precision and power, and ultimately it's a comfortable take for Kobel.
3'

FIRST GLIMPSE OF ADEYEMI

Wow, wow, wow! Adeyemi, playing on the right, gives a first sight of what he's all about, skipping past his marker with ease and then jinking past another defender into the box. The Germany international has incredible pace, but he lays the ball just too far ahead of himself and the goalkeeper is able to collect.

HERE WE GO!

The ball is rolling!
Kick-off!

MOREY COMEBACK

The Spanish full-back is set to make his return to action today after more than a year on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury. Bienvenido!

FOUR FROM FOUR?

BVB have won all three of their pre-season games so far, posting victories over Lüner SV (3-1), Dynamo Dresden (2-0), and SC Verl (5-0). Valencia are obviously a different calibre to the rest of those teams, but Edin Terzic's men will nevertheless be keen to notch another win. For the Spanish side, meanwhile, it's their first game of the summer and first under new head coach Gennaro Gattuso.

NO HALLER

While there are first appearances in a Dortmund shirt for summer signings Schlotterbeck and Adeyemi, fellow new arrival Sebastien Haller will play no part. Dortmund reported that he trained this morning but had symptoms of illness afterwards.
