  • End of 2nd Half
FT

Full-time: It's a famous victory for Freiburg, who inflict a first Bundesliga defeat on Marco Rose. Dortmund controlled possession but offered little in attack and in truth they deserved nothing more today.

90'

FOUR minutes will be added on. Freiburg are so close to a huge victory now.

89' 

Dortmund win a free-kick, is this the moment for the visitors to draw level? Brandt floats a teasing cross in, but despite climbing highest, Haaland fails to make the connection and the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

87'

Freiburg sub: Maximilian Eggestein is given a hero's welcome as he comes on to make his debut following his transfer from Werder Bremen this week. He replaces Keitel.

86'

Yellow card! Demirovic goes into the book.

81' 

Dortmund continue to struggle offensively, despite having over 70 per cent of the ball. They have rarely looked like scoring this afternoon. Haaland has endured a day to forget, but he's far from the only one.

79'

Triple Dortmund sub: Emre Can, Youssoufa Moukoko and Mats Hummels come on for Passlack, Malen and Witsel.

76'

Yellow card! Guerreiro takes out Schade and it's a necessary tackle as the Freiburg forward was looking quite threatening.

75' 

Freiburg have formed an impenetrable red wall as they look to hold on for maximum points. They have 15 minutes to secure the win.

69' 

It's time for another drinks break here.

68'

Chance for Haaland! The Norwegian races through on goal but he takes a touch too many, the ball sits up too high as he fires at goal and it's sent into row-Z.

65' 

Dortmund have had 14 shots at goal and you'd expect another big chance will come their way before time is out. They've been by far second-best today and yet you wouldn't be surprised if they manage to grab a point here.

62' 

Kobel is alert to Grifo's free-kick on this occasion, as Freiburg continue to push forward in attack.

57' 

Haaland wins the ball back in a dangerous area, feeding Malen, who races towards goal but is forced too wide and his cross is pushed clear by Flekken.

55' 

Conceded two goals last week, now they've been breached twice today... there are serious questions to be asked of Dortmund's defence.

Sallai rolls it down the left for Jeong, he crosses into the middle, it's headed down by Hofler and Sallai rifles it home.

48' 

Haaland has lacked conviction today and again he can't find the target as he heads over the bar after meeting Reyna's corner delivery.

47' 

Schmidt's cross causes chaos in Dortmund's penalty area as Sallai collects and has a huge chance to make it two, but his shot from point-blank range is saved by Kobel, before the flag goes up.

  • 2nd Half
46'

Kick-off! Freiburg get us back underway here! Can they hold on for a big victory?

  • End of 1st Half
HT

Half-time: Vincenzo Grifo's bullet free-kick separates the sides at the break, and Dortmund have much work to do if they're to get back into this one.

45'

Freiburg's defensive shape is almost perfect, and Dortmund are really struggling to find a way through it at the moment. There will be three minutes of added-time to play at the end of the first half.

43' 

Chance for Freiburg! Schmid delivers a dangerous cross into the middle, it goes between the Dortmund centre-backs but Akanji is there to make a crucial intervention.

40' 

Five minutes to go in this entertaining first half. Freiburg are deservedly ahead.

Dortmund sub: An enforced change as Guerreiro comes on for Schulz at centre-back.

37' 

Bellingham looks most likely to grab the equaliser for Dortmund and this time his shot - his third on target so far today - is deflected into the arms of Flekken.

Yellow card! Dahoud makes a cynical but necessary foul on Jeong to stop another Freiburg attack and deservedly goes into the book.

33'

Jeong should make it two! Freiburg are on the counter attack, the ball is switched to Grifo who curls the ball into the middle, seemingly putting it on a plate for Jeong, but he doesn't connect properly with the shot and misses from just a few yards out!

32'

Off the post! Bellingham is left completely unmarked from Reyna's corner delivery and his header crashes off the bottom of the post with Frekken beaten.

30'

Free-kick to Freiburg! Grifo is over the ball once again, this time he curls a floated cross to the back post where Schlotterbeck attacks it with his head but on this occasion it's a comfortable save for Kobel.

29' 

Malen takes a nice touch and his pace takes him behind the Freiburg defence, he looks up and tries to square it to Haaland but it's well defended by the hosts.

27' 

Play resumes with a Freiburg throw-in.

25' 

It's time for a drinks brink here.

24' 

Freiburg string a lovely attacking move together before Jeong looks to go it alone but shoots straight into a defender.

23' 

Dortmund are struggling to find a way through the Freiburg press so far. Haaland has had one or two little half chances but nothing of any real significance.

21' 

Dortmund have had 70 per cent of possession and have registered four shots to Freiburg's one, but the most crucial stats show that they're losing.

17'

Malen is clearly in an offside position but that doesn't stop him from latching onto a ball through the middle. He should have left it for Haaland, who could have had an opportunity to run at the goalkeeper.

15' 

Reus tries to thread it through to Haaland but Freiburg's goalkeeper Flekken is alert and beats him to the ball.

14'

Shot! Bellingham picks up the loose ball on the edge of the penalty area and feeds it to Haaland, who has pulled into a wide area and his tame first-time effort is straight into the gloves of Flekken.

12'

Chance for Bellingham! Well, this is sensational from the 18-year-old. With quick feet and rapid pace, he breezes through four defenders to close in on the goalkeeper but his effort is straight at Flekken.

11' 

A neat turn by Reyna in midfield sees him run into space but he doesn't connect properly with the shot.

8' 

Freiburg are playing with lots of intensity, their high-pressing game preventing Dortmund from settling into the contest.

7' 

A perfectly placed free-kick from Grifo gives Freiburg the lead with Kobel left absolutely no chance. That was the fourth direct free-kick scored by Grifo in his Bundesliga career and his first since June last year.

6'

GOAL! Freiburg 1-0 Dortmund (Vincenzo Grifo): A poor first touch from Passlack sees him concede a free-kick in a desperate bid to retrieve the ball. And oh my word, what a strike by Grifo, who smashes the free-kick into the top corner from all of 30 yards. That's an absolute rocket!

5' 

Gunter fails to clear, Passlack brings the ball down and plays it to Haaland whose shot is deflected high into the air and Flekken can gather.

4' 

Reus slides the ball through to Bellingham and he forces the corner. Reyna's delivery is punched clear by Flekken.

2' 

Reus, who has scored in each of his last four league games, wins Dortmund their first free-kick of the game, which they play back to the defence.

Kick-off! There's a raucous atmosphere as Dortmund get us underway!

14:31 

MINUTE'S SILENCE: Everyone takes a moment to remember Gerd Muller, who passed away last Sunday.

14:25 

FIVE minutes until kick-off! It's Freiburg versus Dortmund in the Bundesliga. It's LIVE and it's NEXT!

14:05 

Freiburg lost only four home games last season - and even defeated Dortmund 2-1 the last time the teams met. They're set to play only three more games at the Dreisamstadion, including this, before moving to their new SC-Stadion, so will be hoping to go out on a high.

14:00 

Forget about that defeat to Bayern in midweek and Dortmund are in formidable form. They have won their last eight games in the Bundesliga, which equals their club record from 2011/12 under Jurgen Klopp. And what's more, Erling Haaland has had a hand in seven goals from three competitive matches already this season.
