- GoalRobert LewandowskiFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! The champions lead. Lewandowski thumps a header beyond Hitz from Gnabry's superb right-wing cross.

This has been a lively and very open match so far. It's easy on the eye.
Bayern have been the better side, but BVB have had the best chance.
At the other end, Lewandowski tumbles near the edge of the box. He spreads his arms wide appealing for a spot kick, but the referee waves away his appeals. Weigl was the man who appeared to place his arms on the back of the forward, who perhaps went down a tad too easy.
Reus with some lovely work to turn his man and sprint clear. He surges in on Neuer but his low shot lacks power and the Bayern keeper makes a decent save.
STAT: Bayern have also won on three of their last five league trips to Dortmund.
AWAY DAY JOY: Bayern have won four of their five league matches on their travels, only going down once in a 2-0 loss t Hertha Berlin.
Yet another Bayern corner is nodded away. Dortmund counter once more, but Gotze's final pass doesn't match his initial clever touch and burst clear.
Bayern on top early doors. Another corner is well dealt with and BVB break. Reus makes a smart run through the middle but Gotze can't find him. The hosts would have been clean through had that come off.
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Bayern tend to dominate this fixture having picked up 45 wins to BVB's 24. The Bavarians have only lost once in their past eight meetings.
Hummels rises at the back post to meet the resulting left-wing set piece, but Marwin Hitz comes off his line to make an important punch clear.
Lewandowski surges into the left side of the box, but Zagadou gets across in timely fashion to sweep in behind for the first corner of the game.
Plenty at stake in this one even at this early stage. A Bayern win will see them move to within a point of BVB, while a victory for the hosts would mean they move seven points clear of the champions.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Dortmund get the 120th Der Klassiker underway.
DID YOU KNOW? Former BVB favourite, Robert Lewandowski has scored three goals against his old club at the Signal Iduna Park.
Kovac: "Maybe our performances after the first few matches have not been like Dortmund's but we will try to play our game. There is a lot at stake for us and we want to cut the gap, not extend it. There is a lot of talk about pressure but I feel no pressure, believe me. Excitement and adrenaline yes, but I do not feel any pressure or fear."
Bayern president Uli Hoeness: "You can't go to Dortmund and say that you want to secure three points. Dortmund have had a very good season so far, no doubt about it. We do not go to Dortmund as favourites, but as underdogs – for the first time in a long time. We have to make sure we play a good game there and then we'll see what happens."
BVB coach, Lucien Favre: "We know that we are playing against a very good team with a lot of experience in all positions and we want to do a great job – we want that in every match. We have made progress in the past three or four months, but we still have a lot to learn tactically, especially the young players."
ENGLAND WATCH: Jadon Sancho was named in Gareth Southgate's latest England squad on Thursday and will hope to celebrate retaining his spot with the Three Lions' senior stars by marking his first Der Klassiker in style. The 18-year-old has netted four times in the Bundesliga so far this term. Dortmund are the league's leading scorers.
BAYERN: Neuer, Kimmich, Hummels, Boateng, Alaba, Martinez, Gnabry, Muller, Goretzka, Ribery, Lewandowski... Subs: Wagner, Sule, James, Rafinha, Ulreich, Will, Sanches.

Bayern are four points further back in third (behind second-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach who won 3-1 at Werder Bremen earlier). Die Roten come into this on the back of a 2-0 CL success at home to AEK Athens and have started to show signs of much-needed improvement after a slow start under Niko Kovac.
Unbeaten Dortmund are currently a point clear at the top of the table having won seven of their opening 10 matches. However, die Schwarzgelben did warm up for this one with their first loss of the season in all competitions - a 2-0 reversal at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in midweek.
