Terzic: “We sent out another statement”
Watch: Sebastien Haller on Dortmund's title hopes: 'Why not?'
Dortmund have done their homework. The hosts win with plenty to spare and move to within a point of leaders Bayern Munich with just two games to go. Next up for the Black-and-Yellows: a tricky trip to Augsburg next weekend.
BVB score again
Kramer trips Adeyemi on the edge of the area. Guerreiro smacks the resulting free kick at goal. Olschowsky parries but Reyna pounces and knocks home the loose ball from close range.
Wolf steps up and drills one low and narrowly wide of the upright.
Time added on
Three extra minutes to play at Signal Iduna Park.
Kobel to BVB's rescue
Lainer sets up Stindl who cracks a shot at goal. Kobel dives across and gets a wrist to the ball, deflecting it high and away from the target. BVB living dangerously here.
A Stindl special
Lovely stuff from Lars Stindl, who takes a touch before finding the corner of the net from distance. Some slight uneasiness can be sensed among the home fans.
Adeyemi wants more
The Dortmund forward cuts inside his man and curls an effort into Olschowsky's hands.
Another interesting stat emerging from today's game is that Dortmund conceded their first penalty of the season here. They were the last team to lay claim to a penalty concession-free campaign prior to today.
All hail Haller
A huge ovation for the BVB striker, who heads off having netted a double while being an all 'round menace up front today. Youssoufa Moukoko comes on for Dortmund.
Stindl plays a terrific ball through to Netz - who has just come on. The 19-year-old dinks a shot over Kobel but Süle is there to make a last-gasp clearance for the hosts.
Bensebaini makes no mistake from the penalty spot and Gladbach have a consolation.
Reyna is adjudged to have brought Bensebaini down inside the area and the visitors have a penalty.
BVB switch it up
Brandt sends a left-footed shot wide and that will be his last action of the game. Marco Reus is on for the hosts, as is Gio Reyna. The superb Donyell Malen heads off for a deserved breather.
Haller the man
Sébastien Haller Florian Neuhaus
BVB enjoying themselves
Dortmund produce some tiki-taka (remember that?) on the edge of the area and Adeyemi almost walks one in. Gladbach force the attacker out. Süle then smashes an effort at the target from distance. Just over.
Guerreiro and Özcan have come on for the hosts. Hummels and Ryerson make way.
Bellingham tries one
Olschowsky saves a Bellingham shot and then gathers Brandt's follow up.
Hofmann sends a set-piece high over the bar. Meanwhile, the stats suggest we should expect one more Dortmund goal. Don't tell Daniel Farke.
BVB the likelier
Malen and Haller are continuing to cause Gladbach headaches. BVB want more. They are shooting into the Yellow Wall this half, after all.
Adeyemi heads a clearance out towards the edge of the Dortmund area. Neuheus connects on the volley and his shot flashes over. That was a well-hit effort.
Off we go again
The second half is go. Ko Itakura is on for the Foals, with Hannes Wolf making way.
Malen has a shot blocked before the end of the half. The whistle brings relief to the visitors. At this stage, BVB are heading back to within a point of leaders Bayern Munich. It's on Gladbach to produce something at the start of the second half. Dortmund have been swashbuckling.
Malen has another pop
Malen thumps one straight into Olschowsky's arms. It's non-stop BVB. Gladbach are desperate for the break here. But what do you say to your troops if you're Daniel Farke? Tricky.
Adeyemi sets up Malen, whose strike is palmed away by young Jan Olschowsky. It's been a tough afternoon for the 21-year-old custodian. Not that any of today's goals can be pinned on his shoulders.
Bellingham, lest we forget
Amazing. This is a Black-and-Yellow party and we're still in the first half. Lovely movement from Malen out wide and when the cross comes in, Haller confidently swipes home for yet another Dortmund goal.
Haller's been involved in all three BVB goals today. His own was his sixth of the season and it was the first time the striker netted two games in a row for Dortmund.
No go Gladbach
Ngoumou has a crack from distance but Kobel's not worried about that one. It's not happening for the visitors right now.
Dortmund in dreamland
Die Schwarzgelben extend their lead further courtesy of a cheeky Haller backheel! Malen with the assist. The hosts are cruising now.
Dortmund at the double
Bellingham converts the spot kick and BVB have increased their lead.
Neuheus clatters into the back of Haller, who had just spun to face goal. Penalty for Dortmund.
BVB in control
Chances both ends
Kobel gets down brilliantly to push out Bensebaini's tasty drive. At the other end, Bellingham drifts in from the left and darts a low shot towards the far post. Just wide from the England midfielder.
Haller nods to Malen, who blooters off target from distance.
Game's got bite
There's a bit of an edge to this game with a few tasty challenges landing. Gladbach look like they want back in asap. Let's see if Farke's men can trouble the hosts.
Man in form
That's Malen's ninth goal in his last 11 games. Insane numbers.
Can you hear the BVB fans roar? The hosts lead. Haller steps forward and batters a shot goalwards. Bensebaini gets a block on it, but that only sees it sit up for Malen, who heads in from close range. The perfect start for the title challengers.
Dortmund popping it around the pitch without making any inroads thus far. Gladbach look relatively comfortable.
Away we go!
Dortmund get us underway. HUGE game.
You'll never walk alone
The famous anthem is ringing out around Signal Iduna Park. We're so close to kick off now. A tremendous atmosphere greets the teams.
Dortmund's scoring patterns
It seems 6-0 is something of a theme for Dortmund today. As we know, the Black-and-Yellows' Bundesliga win against Wolfsburg last weekend arrived with just that scoreline while they put Gladbach to the sword with a 6-0 triumph at Signal Iduna Park last season.
Gladbach's good omen?
BVB: as you were
No surprise, perhaps, that Dortmund boss Edin Terzic is going for the same starting XI as that which began last weekend's 6-0 victory against Wolfsburg. It's the first time the BVB coach has gone unchanged two-games running this season.

Last time they met...
Six of the best for Dortmund
Dortmund's formidable home form has been the key to their surging fortunes since the winter break. They have won all eight encounters in Dortmund since the new year, scoring over four goals per match (33 in total) in the process.
Mid-table masters Mönchengladbach
Full steam ahead
Depending how Bayern do earlier in the day against Schalke, Dortmund could have a chance to regain top spot or require a win to avoid losing ground on their title race rivals. Either way they are set to come out firing for the three points!
