bundesliga.com

brought you all the action from an electric evening of European action. Relive it all right here.... Many thanks for joining

bundesliga.com

this evening as

Borussia Dortmund

did what they had to in order to keep their qualification dreams alive by

beating S.S.C Napoli 3-1

, courtesy of goals from

Marco Reus

,

Jakub Blaszczykowski

and

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

. Their Ruhr rivals, however,

FC Schalke 04

, suffered from a late goal - despite

drawing 0-0

with Steaua Bucharest. Basel's late winner against Chelsea in Switzerland means that qualification goes down to the wire in Gelsenkirchen, where Jens Keller's men

must

beat Basel.

Dortmund

have it in their own hands as they go to Olympique de Marseille on Matchday 6, knowing that a win will take them through. Don't forget to join us tomorrow night as the already-qualified

FC Bayern München

are in snowy Moscow

to take on PFC CSKA Moskva, while

Bayer 04 Leverkusen

host Manchester United FC

- where a win will see them qualify. Here's a vote for man of the match...

Borussia Dortmund 3-1 SSC Napoli

FULL TIME:

Goals from

Marco Reus

,

Jakub Blaszczykowski

and

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

hand

Dortmund

all three points in a must win match against

Napoli

. How important winning by two goals will be come the end of Matchday 6 is yet to be decided.

Dortmund

will still need to win in

Marseille

, but their destiny is still in their own hands.

Borussia Dortmund 3-1 SSC Napoli

90+1’

Dortmund

are wasting as much time as possible against

Napoli

, who appear to have given up the ghost in the Signal Iduna Park.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

FULL TIME:

Schalke

's game on the road against

Steaua Bucuresti

finishes goalless. A just result after both sides struggled for ideas in the final third.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

90+2’

Both sides are throwing caution to the wind, but are still failing to produce a clear-cut chance which would see either deserve to take home all three points.

Basel

have taken the lead over

Chelsea

so if it stays like this,

Schalke

will have to beat the Swiss side on home soil to ensure their passage into the last 16. Not the simplest of situations.

Borussia Dortmund 3-1 SSC Napoli

86’

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

goes on another solo run, but with

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

dragging defenders in the opposite direction, can only hit the post from a tight angle with his eventual effort on goal.

Dortmund

earn themselves a corner as a result, but it leads to nothing.

Napoli

are certainly the most desperate side, yet BVB are doing well to keep them at arm's length.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

85’

Time is running out for

Schalke

to get their all-important win.

Steaua

have definitely made life difficult for them, but you can still argue that the Royal Blues have been the best of a bad bunch. Substitute

Julian Draxler

is doing everything he can to change the game, playing in

Adam Szalai

, who's tame effort is easily saved.

Borussia Dortmund 3-1 SSC Napoli

80’

That tweet (below) shows just how much this means to

Dortmund

.

Lukasz Piszczek

is about to come on for

Marco Reus

in an attempt to sure up the backline.

Borussia Dortmund 3-1 SSC Napoli

78’

GOAL!:

They've done it!

Dortmund

move two goals ahead for the second time in the game as

Robert Lewandowski

leads the counter before slipping the ball into

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

, who makes up for his earlier mistake by clipping the ball into the far corner with a delicate chip from a tight angle. Can the

Schwarz-Gelbe

hold on this time?

Borussia Dortmund 2-1 SSC Napoli

75’

Napoli

have

Dotmund

well and truly on the back foot after pulling a goal back, but it hasn't taken everything away from the hosts attacking threat as

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

is played through on goal. The Gabonese international seems to get caught in two minds in the one-on-one situation as

Reina

sticks out a hand to prevent the winger restoring BVB's two-goal lead.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

77’

Schalke

have brought on

Julian Draxler

for

Max Meyer

.

Steaua

go very close to an opening goal though, as

Tanase

's free-kick clips off the post and behind for a goal kick. It didn't look like

Ralf Fährmann

would have got there in time. Close call for the Royal Blues.

Borussia Dortmund 2-1 SSC Napoli

72’

GOAL!:

Napoli

pull a goal back somewhat against the run of play.

Higuain

plays the ball through to

Insigne

, who demonstrated strength and pace before planting the ball beyond

Roman Weidenfeller

, who despite getting a touch, can't prevent the ball tricking in off the far post. This could lead to a nervous ending.

Dortmund

know they need to win by at least two goals to stand the best chance of progressing into the last 16.

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 SSC Napoli

68’

Dortmund

are sitting a little deeper having extended their lead, but

Jürgen Klopp

has just thrown on

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

in place of goalscorer

Jakub Blaszczykowski

to try and inject a bit more pace into his side's forward movements. Not a bad player to bring off the bench!

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

67’

Yet another set-piece offers

Schalke

to take the lead, but after meeting

Dennis Aogo

's corner with his head,

Jermaine Jones

fails to find the target. It's not been the most electric of European in Bucharest it has to be said, but

Jefferson Farfan

continues to look the most likely to make something happen for either side.

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 SSC Napoli

61’

GOAL!:

And there it is!

Dortmund

finally extend their lead.

Roman Weidenfeller

rushes off his line to deny

Higuain

in a one-on-one situation and from the ensuing counter attack,

Marco Reus

breaks down the left before playing the ball into space for

Jakub Blaszczykowski

, who shows no fear in slotting the ball through the legs of the onrushing

Reina

. There’s no doubting BVB deserve the 2-0 lead, but can they add to it?

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

58’

Dortmund

are pushing forward in search of that second goal which will settle the nerves and are enjoying a really promising period of play that has done everything but produce a goal.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

tries to go it alone with a fine solo run, but with other players better placed sees his shot plamed away by

Pepe Reina

. It's coming though...

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

58’

Steaua

's lack of composure in front of goal comes back to haunt them as they botch a clear chance to open the scoring against

Schalke

.

Prepelita

and

Chipciu

end up getting in each other's way at the end of a promising counter and though the ball is chipped over

Ralf Fährmann

there are defenders covering to clear the ball. The game is definitely opening up though.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

54’

Two chances in quick succession for the hosts as

Marco Reus

fires across goal and wide of the target, before

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

plays in

Jakub Blaszczykowski

only for the Pole's square ball looking for compatriot

Robert Lewandowski

to be cut out by

Albiol

.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

51’

The intensity of the encounter between

Dortmund

and

Napoli

has shown no signs of dwindling early in the second half. Both teams are still pressing high up the pitch, yet it's BVB who still look the more threatening side as they continue to attempt to break the visitors down on the counter attack.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

50’

Benedikt Höwedes

goes close to an opening goal for

Schalke

, climbing highest at the back post to meet

Dennis Aogo

only to head wide of the target. That's better from the Royal Blues. It looks like head coach

Jens Keller

might have had a few choice words for his side following their lacklustre first-half performance.

SECOND HALF:

We're back underway in the two games. It has been confirmed during the half-time break that

Dortmund

's

Sven Bender

has indeed broken his nose. However, the make-shift centre-back has been given the all clear to continue.

HALF TIME:

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

HALF-TIME:

Marco Reus

's 10th minute penalty remains the difference between the two sides as they go in at the break following a throughly entertaining first-half.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

HALF-TIME:

No goals yet in Bucharest where

Schalke

have been the slightly better side.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

44’

I think a 1-0 lead is plenty to cheer for

Dortmund

right now. They're not playing like a team in a so-called 'crisis', but are finding time and space at a premium in the

Napoli

half as

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

sees his shot from range blocked. At the other end

Pablo Armero

forces

Roman Weidenfeller

into a diving save.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

42’

Schalke

's first-half performance has exposed just how much they're missing

Kevin-Prince Boateng

and

Julian Draxler

. There's a lack of creativity and aptitude within the Royal Blue ranks and, though they've had eight shots on goal, none have truly threatened to open the scoring.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

38’

It's all getting a little bit heated in

Dortmund

.

Raul Albiol

joins

Higuain

in the referee's book for a reckless, from-behind challenge on

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

.

Napoli

players surround the match official to voice their displeasure and in the pushing and shoving the ensues,

Pandev

and

Sebastian Kehl

both pick up bookings of their own.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

35’

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

is looking very lively for the

Schwarz-Gelbe

as the creative Armenian goes on a marauding run, helped by runners either side opening up the space, which culminates in him drawing a strong save out of

Pepe Reina

.

Robert Lewandowski

then once again passes up the chance to hand

Dortmund

a two-goal lead, shooting straight at the Spanish keeper in a one-on-one situation.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

32’

Minutes after an unsighted

Ralf Fährmann

produced a fine save to prevent

Federico Piovaccari

breaking the deadlock,

Schalke

have the ball in the back of the net. However, the was adjudged to have crossed the byline before

Jefferson Farfan

cut the ball back for

Christian Fuchs

to slot into the net.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

29’

OOOF!

Napoli

almost do just that as

Jose Callejon

dances his way down the right flank before smashing an effort across goal and off the far post.

Jürgen Klopp

's side are never one to settle for a one-goal lead, but the sooner that second goal comes to settle the nerves the better.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

26’

Roman Weidenfeller

is called in action for the first time in the game as first

Goran Pandev

and then

Gonzalo Higuain

force the newly-capped German international to produce routine saves to keep his side in front.

Napoli

are going to have to do better than that to be Roman!

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

25’

The snow is falling thick and fast in Bucharest where, much like their Matchday 1 encounter,

Schalke

are struggling to truly assert themselves on proceedings.

Jefferson Farfan

is providing a focal point for all their forward movements, with his pace looking to most likely to open the door for the Royal Blues.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

20’

Pepe Reina

is at full stretch to deny

Marco Reus

finding the bottom corner with a sumptuous free-kick. The German international got it up and over the wall, but didn't have enough pace on the effort to beat the Spanish keeper. Meanwhile, make-shift centre-back

Sven Bender

has had to leave the field with what could be a broken nose. He's stuffed some cotton buds up there to stem the bleeding and looks set to continue once he changes his shirt.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

20’

It has been a very even encounter so far in Romania with neither side yet to carve out a clear sight of goal.

Max Meyer

and

Dennis Aogo

have both forced saves out of the

Steaua

keeper from half-chances, but it was nothing to write home about in truth.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

15’

Dortmund

should be further ahead as

Robert Lewandowski

squanders a golden opportunity to extend the lead.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

provides the inch-perfect pass to release the Pole in behind only to see him fire into the side-netting as he tried to find the top corner at the near post. This is a very strong start from BVB. Long may it continue.

Borussia Dortmund 1-0 SSC Napoli

10’

PENALTY + GOAL!:

Dortmund

's first corner of the game produces the opening goal in a way as

Robert Lewandowski

is manhandled inside the box, forcing the referee to point to the spot after a moments hesistation.

Marco Reus

steps up and sends

Pepe Reina

the wrong way, finding the bottom right-hand corner to give BVB the perfect start to this must-win encounter.

FC Steaua Bucuresti 0-0 FC Schalke 04

7’

Schalke

and

Max Meyer

in particular have started brightly in the opening exchanges. Both teams seem to be getting a feel for each other, while

Ralf Fährmann

has enjoyed a few early touches, making his first start of the season in the UEFA Champions League.

Borussia Dortmund 0-0 SSC Napoli

4’

As if the pressure on

Dortmund

wasn't already great.

Arsenal FC

have taken an early lead at home to

Olympique Marseille

. BVB are moving the ball well, but regularly coming unstuck against a

Napoli

side, who look to have taken a leaf out of

Jürgen Klopp

's book in that they're pressing with great intensity.

KICK-OFF:

We're underway in tonight's two fixtures. It's a big night for German football. Can they deliver? Let's find out!

Kick-off - 5 mins:

Speaking before the match to

Sky Germany

Borussia Dortmund

head coach

Jürgen Klopp

claimed he had two clear instructions for his side ahead of their encounter with

SSC Napoli

. “They’ve got to put the

FC Bayern

loss behind them and simply convert their chances

,” explained the charismatic coach, who has moved

Sven Bender

into the backline alongside

Sokratis

, while

Erik Durm

keeps his place at left-back for the injured

Marcel Schmelzer

. Elsewhere, club captain

Sebastian Kehl

returns to the fold partnering

Nuri Sahin

in holding midfield. The changes, however, haven't affected this gentleman's view of how proceedings will unfold, a 3-1 scoreline would be perfect for

die Schwarz-Gelben

this evening...

Kick-off - 10 mins:

When

FC Schalke 04

and

FC Steaua Bucuresti

met in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League campaign it ended goalless in Romania.

Steaua

haven’t beaten German opposition since the 1957/58 European Champion Clubs' Cup first round, losing 14 games since then against Bundesliga sides. If The Royal Blues want to continue that run though, they’ll have to do it without

Julian Draxler

and

Kevin-Prince Boateng

, both of whom have pulled out due to late injury setbacks. Instead

Adam Szalai

starts up front, backed up by the trio of

Jefferson Farfan

,

Max Meyer

and

Christian Fuchs

. Elsewhere,

Felipe Santana

is preferred to

Joel Matip

at centre-back. One Twitter follower seems very confident of the Bundesliga sides' chances tonight...

Kick-off - 20 mins:

Borussia Dortmund

’s record against Italian sides doesn’t make for easy ready. In 28 games against Serie A outfits BVB have won nine, drawn four and lost 15. However, things look a little more promising at the Signal Iduna Park where they’ve collected five wins, three draws and just six losses. It should also not be forgotten that their greatest moment in Europe came against Italian opposition when they beat

Juventus

3-1 in Munich to clinch the UEFA Champions League title in 1997. Hope springs eternal no matter the situation. In Klopp we trust!
