Leverkusen go through!

After drawing earlier in the evening away to CSKA Moskva, Leverkusen are now sure of a berth in the last 16 after AS Monaco beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the other Group E encounter.

Reaction to Dortmund's win

Rode: "A game for the history books! We defended top spot!"


Phew! What a rollercoaster that was! A thrilling spectacle ends in victory for Dortmund, who now only need a draw away to Real Madrid on Matchday 6 to go into the last 16 as group winners.


Marco Reus completes his hat-trick on his comeback from injury! Not only that, but his strike is a historic one, setting a new record for goals scored in a single Champions League match.


Yet again the away side hit back! They may have conceded seven, but scoring four in Dortmund is still a remarkable achievement. This time it's Nemanja Nikolic who hits the target, his effort going in off the post. This match has now equalled the record for most goals scored in a single Champions League match.


USMNT starlet Christian Pulisic was at the heart of this goal, bursting down the right before pulling the ball back to Andre Schürrle. His shot was saved, but 18-year-old Felix Passlack heads in the rebound to net his first ever Champions League goal.


There have been five substitutions since the last goal, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Andre Schürrle and Erik Durm all coming on for Dortmund. The changes haven't made a difference to the flow of the game, though, as BVB continue to dominate. Aubameyang almost scores a seventh for the hosts, but his shot cannoncs off the post.


The visitors pull another goal back as Michal Kucharczyk slots home!


Reus grabs his second of the night! Dortmund patiently stroke the ball around the edge of the penalty area before Dembele finds space inside the box with a quick turn of pace. He crosses the ball into the middle, leaving Reus with an easy tap in, a very similar goal to his first of the evening.


Here we go again! Will we reach double figures before the 90 minutes are up?


And breathe! BVB have a big lead at the moment but both teams have had plenty of chances so far en route to setting a new Champions League record!


And the goals keep coming! First, Marco Reus finds Ousmane Dembele to rifle in from ten yards out, before Reus himself gets his name on the score sheet, tapping in from close range from Kagawa's cross.


Unbelievable scenes at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK as the visitors haul themselves back in the game with another goal from Prijovic.


An incredible spell from BVB to turn the match on its head. Shinji Kagawa nets a quickfire double before Nuri Sahin adds a third from close range to put the hosts in the driving seat.

10' GOAL! Dortmund 0-1 Legia

It has been all Dortmund so far, but the visitors take the lead against the run of play as Aleksandar Prijovic curls in a wonderful effort with the outside of his boot from ten yards.


The ball is rolling in Dortmund as Thomas Tuchel's side look to maintain their lead at the top of Group F.

20:01 - REUS IS BACK!

While Leverkusen wait to discover if they're in the next round, Dortmund are already sure of their place in the last 16. And there is one name on the team sheet that stands out this evening: Marco Reus. The winger returns following a lengthy injury lay-off.


It ends 1-1 in Moscow, meaning Leverkusen are still unbeaten in the competition this season. They could yet reach the next round today, depending on how the other fixture in their group pans out today.


Some lovely skill from the forward to fashion space inside the CSKA penalty area, but his effort, curling towards the far corner from ten yards out, hits the base of the post!


Leverkusen defender Benjamin Henrichs is penalised for a foul just inside the area and the hosts are awarded a penalty. Bebars Natcho steps up and smashes the spot-kick home to level the score.


CSKA are so close to an equaliser! A close-range effort squeezes through the legs of Bernd Leno, but the Leverkusen keeper manages to scramble back and gather the ball before it crosses the line.

63' CLOSE!

Pontus Wernbloom becomes the second CSKA player to be booked, giving away a dangerous-looking free-kick on the edge of the area. Hakan Calhanoglu tries his luck, but his curling effort goes just wide of the post.

59' CSKA 0-1 Leverkusen

There's a real battle raging in midfield at the moment, but neither side is managing to carve out too many clear-cut chances. Meanwhile, one has to admire the effort made by certain Leverkusen supporters...


It's CSKA's turn to get the ball in the back of the net, although the referee had blown his whistle at least five seconds earlier for a foul on Jonathan Tah.

19:02 - KICK-OFF!

The second half is underway in Moscow. Can Leverkusen hold on to their lead?

HALF-TIME - CSKA Moskva 0-1 Leverkusen

If it stays this way, Leverkusen will go top of Group E on 9 points. AS Monaco FC (8) host Tottenham Hotspur FC (4) later this evening.

HALF-TIME - CSKA Moskva 0-1 Leverkusen

Roger Schmidt's side lead at the interval thanks to Kevin Volland's 16th-minute strike. When they have managed to get the ball down and pass it around, the Bundesliga side have looked a cut above their Russian hosts, but CSKA have also created a few decent chances. Expect another absorbing 45 minutes after the break.



Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev almost gets CSKA in real trouble, coming miles out of his area to tackle Brandt and picking up a yellow card for his troubles. From the resulting free-kick, Toprak gets the ball in the back of the net, but it is ruled out for offside.


Alan Dzagoev finds himself a yard of space inside the Leverkusen penalty area, and fires just over the bar. You get the feeling there are more goals in this one...

15' GOAL! CSKA Moscow 0-1 Leverkusen

The Bundesliga side lead through Kevin Volland! The Germany international collects the ball free in front of goal after a cleverly worked free-kick and he makes no mistake.


Ömer Toprak is caught in possession and suddenly the hosts are on the attack. Aleksandr Golovin storms into the area and shoots at goal, but Bernd Leno saves with his legs!

8' CSKA Moskva 0-0 Leverkusen

This has been an energetic start, with Hakan Calhanoglu firing just wide of the post!

18:00 - KICK-OFF!

So here we go then! CSKA Moskva vs Leverkusen is underway? What can Roger Schmidt's men produce? We will find out!

17: 50 - VOTE LEWY

The Polish marksman is also on the shortlist for the 2016 UEFA Team of the Year. Vote for him here:

17:43 - Lewandowski speaks to the media

Before we begin our coverage of the Leverkusen game, Robert Lewandowski has been speaking to the media ahead of tomorrow's game against Rostov. "It will be a different game to the 5-0 win. It's very important for Rostov - third place is still up for grabs."

17:16 - Time to work up a sweat!

Leverkusen collectively ran 113.64 kilometres in their Bundesliga Matchday 11 clash on Friday, and they'll need to at least do the same again in Moscow to stave off the cold...

16:52 - Leverkusen line-up

Here's how Die Werkself will start in Moscow...

16:47 - Group E permutations

Leverkusen are currently second in the standings with six points (one win, three draws), two behind leaders AS Monaco FS and two ahead of third-placed Tottenham Hotspur FC. CSKA must win today in order to have any chance of reaching the next round. Victory for Leverkusen would edge them closer to the last 16, but they would go through if they can at least draw in Moscow, coupled with defeat for Tottenham.

16:21 - Leverkusen all set

The kits are out and ready in Moscow as kick-off for Bayer 04's match fast approaches...

15:52 - Bayern arrive in Rostov

This was the Bayern squad disembarking in Rostov ahead of tomorrow's game.

15:40 - Kagawa & Co. focused

Here’s Shinji Kagawa posing with Aubameyang and Ousmane Dembele on Instagram. “It’s Champions League day! I’m going to give my best!” reads the caption.

15:01 - Vote Auba!

You can cast your vote for Aubameyang - and his Dortmund team-mate Raphael Guerreiro - in the UEFA Team of the Year right here.

14:26 - Aubameyang on fire

Dortmund's main threat this evening will, of course, be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese international scored the winner against Bayern on Saturday and won the Matchday 11 BLMVP award for the second matchday in a row. He is the joint-top scorer (along with Köln's Anthony Modeste) in Europe's top five leagues and has just been shortlisted for the UEFA Team of the Year. He will take some stopping....

14:02 - Gladbach's Schubert confident ahead of City clash

Borussia Mönchengladbach coach Andre Schubert has been speaking to the media this afternoon ahead of Manchester City's visit to Borussia-Park tomorrow. The Foals were left disappointed in their last outing - a home loss in the derby against 1. FC Köln - and must win against City and Barcelona to qualify for the last 16. They are up against it, then, but Schubert is confident his players will rise to the challenge.

13:21 - No repeats

Having already faced CSKA, Bayer will be hopeful of finishing the Russians off this evening. On Matchday 1 they raced into a two-goal lead and looked well on top, only to allow CSKA back into the game and take a point in a 2-2 draw. The Werkself will hope to have learned the right lessons when they play tonight.

12:53 - Moscow shimmering

The travelling Leverkusen fans will certainly be enjoying this weather over in Russia's capital...

12:26 - Schmidt confident that Leipzig loss is out of the system

Speaking to the media on Monday, Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt said he believed his side will respond to Friday's disappointing loss against league leaders Leipzig, a match which Bayer led twice yet contrived to lose 3-2. "We tend to recover from games like that very quickly, and we're now looking forward to the Champions League again," he said. "We go into the game in a good position, so we need to forget [about the Leipzig match] and look forward."

Watch: Leverkusen 2-3 Leipzig highlights

12:03 - A little bit chilly

While it's a moderate 12°C in Cologne today, it's -3 in Moscow and will dip even lower by the time kick-off approaches. No wonder the Leverkusen players wrapped up warmly for training last night.

11:33 - Dortmund ready for Legia test

Elsewhere tonight, Borussia Dortmund, already assured of a place in the last 16, host Legia. BVB won the return fixture 6-0 on Matchday 1, but coach Thomas Tuchel is taking nothing for granted as his side attempts to win the group ahead of Real Madrid CF. "Nothing less than 100 per cent will suffice," he said on Monday evening.

11:14 - Sleek

Here's the pitch that Leverkusen will be playing on tonight.

11.01 - From Russia with love?

Leverkusen were victorious in a potentially decisive contest away at Tottenham Hotspur on Matchday 4, but domestically they have struggled of late, and Friday's home loss to RB Leipzig left them five points off the top four. A win tonight will put them in the driving seat to qualify - and be enough to do so outright if Spurs fail to win at AS Monaco in Group E's other game. Can they do it?

10:30 - Welcome!

A very good morning/afternoon/evening to you, wherever you might be today! We're back for another dose of Champions League action and, with two games to go, all four Bundesliga clubs could still be going through to the last 16 of the tournament.
