That's it! Borussia Dortmund have won and have the advantage for the second leg in Paris.
Neymar works a shooting chance for Marquinhos, whose shot deflects wide from 20 yards. From the corner, Thiago SIlva heads just over the bar from six yards out.
Schmelzer replaces Sancho for Dortmund. We'll have two additional minutes at least.
Verratti was also booked earlier it now transpires. Like Meunier, he will miss the second leg. PSG will miss him.
- Yellow cardThomas MeunierParis Saint-Germain
Meunier is booked for a foul on Reyna. Seconds earlier Neymar almost broke into the Dortmund area to shoot but was blocked just as he was about to let it go.
CHANCE! Dortmund win the ball high up the pitch again. Haaland and Sancho combine before shifting it to Hakimi, who smashes it across goal from a wide angle and it drifts out.
A brief lull here as Can is receiving treatment after a foul by Verratti.
Sancho tries to take the proverbial out of Verratti. He tricks him once, but he can't trick him twice and Verratti wins the ball and a free kick. He's been quietly excellent tonight.
OFF THE POST! Dortmund hesitate over clearing a bouncing ball in their area. Neymar takes advantage of the confusion, chesting the ball down before larruping a half volley against the outside of the post.
What a stunning goal that was. This has been an extraordinary ten minutes.
- GoalErling HaalandBorussia Dortmund
GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 2 (Haaland 77) Paris St Germain 1
Oh my, what a strike! Dortmund take it straight back to PSG. Reyna gets the ball in space and slides it to a central Haaland, twenty yards out. He lets the ball run across his body before unloading an unstoppable drive past Navas and into the roof of the net.
- GoalNeymarParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 1 Paris St Germain 1 (Neymar 75)
We're level! Mbappe picks the ball up in the inside right channel. From a standing start he dances around and through three Dortmund players and into the penalty area, before squaring it to Neymar for a tap-in. That was stunning from Mbappe.
Borussia Dortmund players celebrate.
Haaland is such a menace. PSG let a long ball bounce, and suddenly Haaland nudges it behind them and bursts into the area. Navas gets to him just in time and the ball squirms away from danger.
Dortmund seriously have their tails up here, as Sancho glides past Verratti down the right. They can't manufacture a shooting chance though, and PSG eventually clear under extreme pressure.
- GoalErling HaalandBorussia Dortmund
GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 1 ( Haaland 69) Paris St Germain 0
He can't stop scoring! Haaland puts Dortmund ahead after a scramble in the PSG box. Hakimi finds Reyna with a cut back, and Reyna shoots from ten yards out. Marquinhos gets in the way but the ball pops up to Haaland, who pokes it in from a few yards out!
- OffThorgan HazardBorussia Dortmund
- OnGiovanni ReynaBorussia Dortmund
A change for Dortmund, with 17-year old Giovanni Reyna replacing Hazard.
Hakimi has a go down the other end for Dortmund, but curls his shot over the bar from 25 yards.
TWO CHANCES FOR MBAPPE! A long ball finds him in the Dortmund area and he hits a bouncing ball straight at Burki, who palms it away. A minute later Neymar plays Mbappe in again, and again Burki blocks the ball out to safety.
Verratti wins another good ball for PSG in the middle of the pitch. They quickly try to release Mbappe through the middle, but Piszczek sees the danger and awkwardly back heels the ball away and out of danger.
Brilliant and then awful from Kurzawa here. He goes on a determined run down the left wing, crashing through three challenges and somehow keeping the ball, before smashing a crossfield ball to Di Maria, who was in acres, hopelessly out of play.
- Yellow cardNeymarParis Saint-Germain
A yellow for Neymar now, who clips Witsel to the floor and then catches him with a brushing elbow to the jaw.
Another great long ball from Can finds Haaland, one on one with a defender who he just barrels through and is momentarily through on goal. Marquinhos gets back though and clears the ball behind for a corner.
Haaland and Can, plus a fan.
- Yellow cardIdrissa GueyeParis Saint-Germain
Gueye is booked for cleaning out Witsel on the far touchline. Haaland has been absolutely everywhere in the last few minutes, chasing down the PSG defence and winning a ball back for his team with high octane intensity.
Hummels absolutely flattens Mbappe after he rolls away to the right. Strangely, he isn't booked.
Almost a chance for Haaland, who wins the ball on the right and cuts menacingly into the area. He cuts onto his left foot to shoot, but is robbed of the ball just as he's about to let his shot go.
A brilliant pass over the top by Can releases HAkimi in behind Kurzawa. He cuts into the area but overruns it slightly as he gets to the byline. Navas smothers his cutback and the ball dribbles out for a corner.
The first burst of Mbappe, who races away down the left after picking up a loose ball by Sancho. He tries to hit an impossible reverse ball to Neymar, but it's deflected from danger and Dortmund eventually clear the ball.

We're off again!

- Yellow cardAxel WitselBorussia Dortmund
Witsel bumps Di Maria off the ball as PSG threaten to break. It looks a soft one, but Witsel has been booked for it.
Dortmund break down the left again, trough Hazard this time, but Marquinhos blocks his cross and puts the ball out for a corner.
Di Maria has been anonymous so far, but almost cuts diagonally right through the heart of Dortmund. Zagadou tracks him all the way though, and shoulders Di MAria off hte ball just outside the Dortmund area to win the ball back. Expert defending. At the other end, Witsel yahoos a shot miles over from thirty yards.
Haaland almost skips through three challenges to get away right down the middle of the pitch, but another excellent tackle from Verratti in the centre circle averts the danger.
CHANCE! Dortmund break again, and find Sancho again on the left. He lofts a lovely cross to the back post, where Haaland glances it well wide when it looked like Hazard was in a better position behind him.
Dortmund nick the ball and midfield, and quickly shift it to Sancho. He then jabs a pass through to Haaland, who has a defender between him and the goal. Haaland shifts it to the left, and then lashes a 20 yard shot into the side netting from a wide angle.
Verratti tries a long one in behind Hummels, who momentarily is one-on-one with Mbappe. Hummels deals with it expertly though, and lays it back to Burki to clear.
PSG are back in possession now, taking the sting out of Dortmund's momentum. The home side have been the better team, but have nothing to show for it yet.
Hakimi whips a cross to the back post. His fellow wing-back Guerreiro is there, but can't connect with his header and PSG clear.
CHANCE! A diagonal ball to the left goes into the path of both Haaland and Sancho. The latter takes over, whipping a shot to the far corner from 20 yards that Navas palms away, and Dortmund's attempt from the rebound is blocked.
Brilliant again from Sancho, who stands up Verratti on the left of the PSG area and ghosts away from him effortlessly. He then fizzes a low cross into the six yard box that Navas dives on and gathers.
Sancho whips a free-kick to the back post. Hummels gets to it and loops a header onto the roof of the net, but he was flagged offside.
A half chance for Dortmund on the break; Hakimi cuts it back to Can in the PSG area. He should crack it first time, but takes a touch to set himself and a brilliant, toe-poke tackle from Verratti snuffs out the danger as PSG clear.
Neymar breaks menacingly down the left for PSG. He carries it thirty yards and right to the edge of the Dortmund area, but his pass goes astray and the home side clear.
Neymar gets absolutely clattered by Can in the centre of the pitch. That should be a yellow card, but the referee has let Can off.
More lively stuff from Sancho, who is running all over the pitch here. He's all over this.
CHANCE! PSG pressurise Can and force him to put the ball behind for a corner. Dortmund clear and break rapidly through Sancho. He runs it all the way to the PSG and opens up to shoot, but drags his shot a yard wide of the post from 20 yards.
Apologies folks, a brief loss of connection there - back online and you've not missed anything other than Neymar whistling a free-kick just past the post. Still 0-0.
The visitors are keeping hold of it here, meandering back and forth across the pitch but with no real forward menace as yet.
Dortmund look to break, with Haaland shifting it to Sancho, who shifts it to Hakimi on the right. He tries to burst past Kurzawa but a strong tackle robs him and puts the ball out for a throw-in.
- 1st Half
Nearly ready to go here. The Westfalenstadion looks great and sounds rocking tonight.
The captains Lucasz Piszczek and Thiago Silva are in the tunnel, ready to lead the teams out and idle about while the Champions League anthem blares away in the background. The referee tonight will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz.
There’s a whiff of revenge about tonight’s match for PSG boss Thomas Tuchel. He returns to Dortmund for the first time since managing them between 2015-17, where he was unceremoniously sacked soon after winning the DFB-Pokal.
Tonight’s visitors breezed through their group, winning five and drawing one of their six games. The signature performance so far by PSG in this season’s competition was on the opening night, where they hosed down Real Madrid in Paris.
Dortmund’s path out of Group F was smoothed by a stunning home victory against Inter Milan in November, where they came from two goals behind at half-time to secure a 3-2 victory.
These two sides have been drawn against each other on one other occasion in European competition. They were drawn together in Group J of the Europa League in the 2010-11, drawing 1-1 in Dortmund and then 0-0 in Paris.
Much like Manchester City, in recent years Paris St Germain have become a project with one ultimate goal in mind. Landing the Champions League title has become an obsession in the French capital, and they’re in the knockout stages for the eighth year in a row. The bad news for the French champions is that, despite all the euros spent, there has been little progress on this front. PSG have not made it past the quarterfinals in that time and have been knocked out at this stage in each of the last three seasons.
It’s been 7 years since Jurgen Klopp took Dortmund to the Champions League final at Wembley, and 23 years since the club won the trophy by dethroning the reigning champions Juventus in Munich. The hosts’ record in European football has been modest in recent years, but they arrive at this tie tonight having survived the Group of Death with Inter Milan and Barcelona. They’re also scoring goals by the crate, having registered the most (63) in the Bundesliga this season and 22 in their 5 league matches since Christmas.
Neymar was only a late inclusion in the Paris St Germain squad after missing the last four matches, but returns to the starting line-up tonight to complete a front three with Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria.
And your Paris St Germain this evening: Navas; Meunier, Silva, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Gueye, Marquinhos, Verratti; Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar
SUBS: Kehrer, Cavani, Rico, Icardi, Sarabia, Draxler, Kouassi
There's a very notable difference to the hosts since the group stages. Erling Haaland makes his Champions League debut for Borussia Dortmund tonight, and will be looking to build on his remarkable start of 9 goals in 6 matches since his transfer from Red Bull Salzburg in December.
