KICK OFF! Dortmund get us back up and running.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Paderborn 0-0 Dortmund.
Brandt has plenty of time to set his sights from 20 yards, but flashes a poor first-time attempt over the bar after another lung-bursting run from Hakimi.
Can blazes over the bar after Sancho had flicked a clever lay-off into his path from Hakimi's low cross.
Sancho takes three on inside the right of the Paderborn area. He twists and turns, but in the end it's one too many and the hosts hammer it to safety.
Antwi-Adjej takes Holtmann's lay off on the burst, but can only fire over the near-post upright from a tight angle on the left.
Dortmund work the ball to Hakimi in yards of space down the right. He fizzes a devilish ball across the face of goal, but no BVB player can make up the ground to provide a finish.
Can rises well to meet Hazard's right-wing corner, but cannot guide his header on target.
Sancho and Hazard have looked more lively in the past five minutes or so. Still no way through a stubborn Paderborn though... yet.
CLOSE! Hazard nips in to seize upon a weak headed back pass, but Zingerle is out fast to deny him a clear shot at goal and the ball deflects to safety.
Holtmann has a rather optimistic pop from 35 yards out and can only watch on at it sails harmlessly over the bar.
Dortmund counter at speed. Brandt turns it back into the path of Guerreiro, who arrives at speed but sees his low drive deflect just wide of the far post.
Can sweeps a beautiful arcing ball into the path of Sancho. He has space in front of him and one defender on his shoulder, but his first touch is poor and Paderborn mop up.
STAT: Four of Mamba's five goals this season have come against either Dortmund, Leverkusen or Leipzig. He likes the big stage it seems.
Paderborn's social team are happy with their team's start.
Hazard charges on to Piszczek's long ball over the top. He takes it down on the right side of the area and fizzes in a shot that Zingerle does well to beat away at his near post.
Favre had to respond to questions about his future again after the loss to Bayern. He shrugged it off, but needs his side to do the business here.
Paderborn counter at speed again. They are having plenty of joy down the right flank. Once more Antwi-Adjej has time to line up a shot, but he lashes his attempt over the top.
Sancho has been very quiet for Dortmund so far. Plenty of time for that to change, mind you.
Paderborn burst forward and find Holtmann. He switches it to Antwi-Adjej in acres of space on the right, but his low strike from 20 yards is well wide of the far post.
Still waiting on that first chance of any note. Can is looking bright for the visitors.
Dortmund with the majority of possession in these early exchanges. You sense that pattern is set and Paderborn will look to use their pace on the break to try and cause problems for Hummels and co.
The BVB corner from the right comes to nothing and the hosts clear their lines.
Can drives down the right side and fires in a dangerous, low ball that is hacked to safety. Dortmund didn't have enough bodies in the box to make the most of that enterprising run from Can.
DID YOU KNOW? Dortmund have never lost a competitive match to Paderborn (W3, D2). It is a fixture in which they are averaging at least two goals per game.
STAT: Favre's side have only won seven of their 14 Bundesliga away matches so far this season.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Paderborn get us underway.
DID YOU KNOW? Steffen Baumgart’s men haven’t won any of their last nine league fixtures, but have drawn all three matches since the restart , against Fortuna Düsseldorf, Hoffenheim and Augsburg.
Mats Hummels: "I think now it is only up to Bayern to decide the title. We can do nothing more than win our games. But we have to hope they slip up."
Anyone thinking Paderborn have no chance, only need to look at what happened in front of Dortmund's Yellow Wall back in November. The minnows rampaged into a 3-0 interval lead before BVB hit back through Jadon Sancho, Axel Witsel and Marco Reus to snatch a draw.
Streli Mamba notched twice for Paderborn that day and he has recently overcome a knee problem to start here.
With five matches left to play after this weekend’s round of fixtures, BVB know they must win here to keep their slim dreams alive. It's a tall order, as Bayern maintained their march towards what looks like an eighth straight title with a thumping win on Saturday.
Dortmund coach Lucien Favre on the loss to Bayern that leaves his side 10 points off the summit heading into this contest: "We made a very good start in the opening 30 minutes but we sat too deep after that. The second half was good too. We had opportunities. But the penultimate or final ball was missing. We at least deserved to draw. We played better than we did against Wolfsburg and Schalke."
Plenty of Europe's top clubs will be keeping tabs on Sancho again today - and it's no surprise he features in our countdown of the best young players on the planets right now.
As we build up to kick off, why not catch up on the latest gossip doing the rounds in Europe?
No surprise to see Jadon Sancho for the first time since the Bundesliga resumed. He's been featuring from the bench recently following a calf problem, but comes in today with Erling Haaland ruled out due to the knee injury sustained v Bayern. Former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can also starts in place of Mo Dahoud, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season with (knee).
