The Dortmund fans are dancing and the Dortmund team are embracing one another! “Oh how nice is that”, rings around the stadium. Unbelievable! Wonderful! Out of this world good! BVB are on their way to Wembley!!
FULL-TIME: The final whistle blows and Jürgen Klopp races onto the pitch to celebrate with his side, who showed unbelievable character to come from behind twice in order to secure a sensational 3-2 win and with it their place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
90+3'GOAL! UNBELIEVABLE! Dortmund score two goals in two minutes as Felipe Santana pokes the ball over the line in another goalmouth scramble. The fans are on their feet and Malaga don't know what to do with themselves.
90+1'GOAL!Marco Reus taps home after a goalmouth scramble and Dortmund believe they can still win this...
88' bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: The Malaga fans are partying in the stands, but none of the Dortmund fans are heading for the exit. They're going to cling onto hope and pray until the very last whistle.
87'Dortmund now need two goals to reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Anything is possible!
82'GOAL! There was hint of offside, but second-half subtitute Eliseu taps home from Julio Baptista's sliced effort on the counter attack to put Malaga back in front. The wind has been taken out of Dortmund's sails as Jürgen Klopp sends on Mats Hummels for Ilkay Gündogan.
80' bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: Whether it's the right decision to bring on Julian Schieber remains to be seen. Up until now he's never been a big factor for Dortmund against strong, experienced teams. However, it still feels like there's a goal in this game.
<79' Willy comes to Malaga's rescue for the second time in quick succession. Mario Götze exchanges passes with Ilkay Gündogan to burst into the area, but Willy gets a foot on his shot which trickles agonisingly past the far post. Dortmund don't have long left to grab a second and may come to regret missing opportunities like that.
75'Dortmund should be ahead in this one now. The changes seem to have done them a world of good as Lukasz Piszczek breaks down the right to square the ball to Marco Reus, who fails to steer the ball beyond Willy from six yards. Unbelievable!
72' A few minutes after Jeremy Toulalan's fierce drive is fisted away from danger by Roman Weidenfeller, Dortmund head coach Jürgen Klopp makes two changes to his side. Nuri Sahin and Julian Schieber replace Sven Bender and Jakub Blaszczykowski respectively.
69'Dortmund have the ball in the back of the net, but Jakub Blaszczykowski is correctly given offside as he headed across the area for fellow Pole Robert Lewandowski to head home.
67' bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park:Jürgen Klopp is not happy man about the movement of his front three and is making his feelings heard. He's constantly trying to influence this game from the sidelines, but is talking to Jakub Blaszczykowski and Marco Reus the most.
63' A bit of handbags on the sidelines between Marcel Schmelzer and Jesus Gamez sees play halted for a few moments.Dortmund immediately push forward once the ball gets rolling as the Malaga right-back beats Mario Götze in the air to quell the danger.
58'Marco Reus' set-pieces aren't proving as effective as Malaga's, but Dortmund are very much on the front foot at the moment and need to put this pressure to better use if they want to grab a second goal.
53'Dortmund are trying to be too clever and fancy at times in the final third, which is costing them. However, a more direct approach opens up Malaga as Sergio Sanchez unwittingly flicks on Felipe Santana's long ball into the path of Mario Götze, who mistimes his half volley, slicing wide of the near post.
48'Robert Lewandowski wastes an early chance for Dortmund to take the lead, firing straight at Willy from the edge of the area. However, Malaga immediately go down the other end as Martin Demichelis heads across goal to an unmarked Joaquin, whose header forces Roman Weidenfeller to produce a world class save to keep the scores level.
46' bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: A quick half-time survey of the Dortmund fans: They're relieved that Robert Lewandowski equalised, but they're perplexed as to why BVB have been so out of sorts and reserved in attack. They'd know best, but Dortmund have to do more in the second-half.
SECOND-HALF: We’re back underway at the Signal Iduna Park with Dortmund in need of a second goal against Malaga to book their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Buckle yourselves in ladies and gentleman we’re in for a wild ride in the next 45 minutes!

HALF-TIME: As it stands Malaga are going through into the Champions League semi-finals, but after overturning a one-goal deficit following Joaquin’s opener, there’s plenty of life left in this Dortmund side. Goalscorer Robert Lewandowski, who now has six goals to his name in the competition this season, has looked very lively and with Marco Reus and Mario Götze combining well anything is possible.
45'Dortmund fall asleep on the stroke of half-time and almost allow Joaquin to bag his second of the evening, but fortunately for the hosts Roman Weidenfeller was able to cllect the winger's header, which proved to be the final action of the first-half.
43'Dortmund are back on top in this encounter after grabbing the equaliser and with the fans behind them look threatening every time they begin moving the ball into the final third.
39'GOAL! The finish may have been simple, but the move was world class as Dortmund level the scores. BVB win the ball in midfield allowing Mario Götze to burst foward before picking out Marco Reus, whose sublime backheel flick releases Robert Lewandowski to round Willy and fire into an empty net.
37' bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: Ten seconds of shock after the goal and it was as quiet as a graveyard. However, now the Signal Iduna Park is rocking once again and it's the atmosphere has really picked up. Dortmund aren't really getting to grips with the game though. Right now a real leader like Sebastian Kehl would help a lot, but he's sitting on the substitutes bench.
32'Dortmund win the first corner of the game after a good run from Mario Götze, but it's headed clear by Malaga, who know they can't afford to relax despite taking the lead. At least penalties are off the cards now, but there's no doubt the BVB fans will be frantically biting their nails at present.
29'Dortmund looked to be in complete control of proceedings before falling behind, but now need at least two goals to qualify for the semi-finals. Can BVB muster up the right response? They certainly have the players capable of pulling off a comeback!
25'GOAL!Malaga open the scoring. Dortmund fail to clear the lines and with their backline at sixes and sevens, Joaquin's drop of the shoulder buys him enough time and space to fire into the bottom corner through Neven Subotic's legs and past a despairing Roman Weidenfeller.
22'bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: Despite Robert Lewandowski early chance, Dortmund look like the more nervous side, as was to be expected. Jürgen Klopp isn't completely satisfied with what he's seen so far and in gesticulating on the sidelines in an attempt to give Ilkay Gündogan new instructions. However, the BVB fans are incredibly loud. There's a really incredible atmosphere inside the stadium and there a feeling that Dortmund could achieve something very special tonight.
16'Robert Lewandowski squanders the first chance of the game after letting Marco Reus' pass roll into space before trying to beat Willy with a cheeky lob from the edge of the area which drifts over the bar.
15'bundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park:Manuel Pellegrini is up on his feet on the sidelines urging his players to push up. Dortmund have created a lot of pressure in the opening quarter of an hour, but their lacking a final pass.
13'Dortmund's Sven Bender picks up the first booking of the game for a late challenge on Joaquin. His central midfield partner Ilkay Gündogan is pulling all the strings for BVB, but with Malaga sitting deep their backline is standing firm against the hosts' one-touch football.
9' With time and space at a luxury so far, Martin Demichelis has made some great challenges to prevent Dortmund capitalising on their most promising moves. We're yet to see a shot on goal, but the home fans are still in good voice though with their side having a lot of joy down the right early on.
5'Malaga, who are all wearing black tape on their arms in tribute to Manuel Pellegrini’s late father, are moving the ball about well during the opening exchanges. However, both they and Dortmund are keeping their cards close to their chest so far in the encounter.
KICK-OFF: And we're under way at the Signal Iduna Park. Can Borussia Dortmund preserve their unbeaten record in the UEFA Champions League by booking their place in the semi-finals of Europe’s premier club competition against Malaga? We’ll be providing you with all the latest stats and offering plenty of interesting reading material throughout the 90, 120 or even more minutes so stay tuned...
Kick-off - 2 minsbundesliga.com Reporter at the Signal Iduna Park: The whole city has been awash with Yellow and Black colours. There's an incredible atmosphere inside the stadium and everyone's singing. It's giving me goosebumps. The Dortmund fans presented a very impressive pre-.atch choreography as the players came out in the shape of the Champions League trophy.
Kick-off - 10 mins: The 0-0 first leg draw was the first time these two sides had met and was Malaga’s first-ever encounter with a German outfit. However, for Dortmund, who have progressed all three times after securing a goalless draw on their travels in a UEFA Champions League first leg, Malaga become the second Spanish side they’ve faced at the Signal Iduna Park this season after Real Madrid suffered a 2-1 defeat to BVB back in October.
Kick-off - 20 mins: There’s no doubting that Malaga have impressed during their debut Champions League campaign, but it’s worth pointing out that Dortmund are the only unbeaten side left in the competition. BVB managed to recover from a 2-2 first-leg draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Round of 16 to clinch a 3-0 win on home soil with the exact same side starting tonight. Iif they achieve a similar feat against their Spanish visitors, it will be the seventh time the Yellow Blacks have progressed in Europe’s premier club competition after drawing the first leg. Should they emerge victorious it will also be the first time Dortmund have reached the final four of the Champions League since 1998.
Kick-off - 30 mins: Lining up in the centre of defence for Malaga will be former FC Bayern Munich defender Martin Demichelis, who won five of his nine game against Dortmund with the record titleholders, is familiar with what the Signal Iduna Park has to offer. “I know just what atmosphere to expect from the stands but it should not faze us however. The first leg was not a bad result for us and any who believe Dortmund are as good as through are mistaken,” said the Argentinean international, who also talked about the effect the news of Manuel Pellegrini’s father passing has had on the side. “We would like to win this one for [Pellegrini]. We are all sad. He did not tell us at first about his father passing away, that shows his greatness. We have offered him our condolences. We will try everything to go through for him. However, it is quite possible that this will not be over after 90 minutes.”
Kick-off - 40 mins: Talking in his pre-match press conference Dortmund head coach Jürgen Klopp was adament he wanted his side to put the first leg result behind them. “I told the lads today in training that we heard far too many negative comments about the first-leg. I have no idea how anyone can think you win in Malaga just like that. Everything that has happened so far in this campaign, the first leg included, has been extremely positive. But that does not guarantee anything,” explained Klopp, who is understandably proud of what his team have managed to achieve thus far, not that he wants the fairytale to end just yet. “We want to continue to write this wonderful story that the Champions League is for us. We are still keen to go on in this competition. Everyone is really looking forward to this. There are two extreme ways of approaching a game like this. Either you feel only the pressure or you feel only the sense of opportunity. The latter has served us well so far.”
Kick-off - 50 mins: The line-ups are in! BVB boss Jürgen Klopp has made eight changes to the side that beat FC Augsburg 4-2 on the weekend. Only one real surprise though as Klopp opts not to risk Mats Hummels, who has only recently returned to full team training, as Felipe Santana partners Neven Subotic in the centre of defence. Elsewhere, Jakub Blaszczykowski is included in the first XI after recovering from a groin injury, while Sven Bender keeps his place after completing 90 minutes on the weekend.
Kick-off - 60 mins: A 0-0 draw in the first leg has left Dortmund’s Champions League’s quarter final tie with Malaga in limbo as one goal for the away side could drastically change the complexion of proceedings. However, considering the attacking quality they boast in their front line, BVB will be confident the likes of Mario Götze, Marco Reus and Robert Lewandowski won’t be as profligate in front of goal as they were in southern Spain.
Kick-off - 70 mins:Borussia Dortmund head coach Jürgen Klopp is expected to ring in the changes after resting several key players during BVB’s 4-2 win against FC Augsburg on Saturday. Questions marks still surround the fitness levels of Polish international Jakub Blaszczykowski (groin) and centre-back Mats Hummels (ankle), while Sven Bender is expected to feature after being sidelined with a minor knock during the first leg.
