Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund Live Score









L. Balerdi
T. Delaney
Borussia Dortmund
83' Balerdi, meanwhile, has replaced Delaney, who has been typically impressive in midfield for Dortmund today.
M. Schmelzer
Raphaël Guerreiro
Borussia Dortmund
83' A double change for Dortmund. The first substitution sees Schmelzer come on for Guerreiro, who opened the scoring in the first half.
F. Klaus
Red Card
Wolfsburg
82' RED CARD! It gets worse for Wolfsburg! Klaus’ tackle did not seem to be intentional, with his eyes having been on the ball. The referee, however, has decided it was worthy of a sending off, and the substitute is gone.
80' VAR! There will be a VAR check for a possible red card, with Klaus having appeared to step on Akanji’s heel.

J. Sancho
Assist
Borussia Dortmund
78' Sancho has not been on long, but his pace on the counter there was devastating. The youngster had the awareness to pick out Hakimi, and duly register his 16th assist of the campaign.
A. Hakimi
Goal
Borussia Dortmund
78' GOAL! DORTMUND MAKE IT 2-0! That could well be game over now, as Sancho drives forward from deep and, unchallenged, lays it off to Hakimi, who keeps his cool to slot home into the bottom-left corner.



76' Brooks is involved at the other end now, as he unleashes a swerving half-volley from just inside the area. Burki, though, never looked likely to be threatened.
T. Hazard
Yellow Card
Borussia Dortmund
74' That’s a booking for Hazard, who took no chances and dived in on Mbabu to prevent Wolfsburg countering down the right flank.
73' A penalty appeal now from Dortmund, after a cross appears to make contact with Brooks’ arm. There is a VAR check, but it has not been deemed an intentional handball.
71' CLOSE! Dortmund get clear on the counter-attack, with Haaland working brilliantly to shrug off a few defenders and lay it off to Sancho. He hesitates before slipping it into the path of Guerreiro, whose first-time strike takes a deflection and flashes wide.
68' Wolfsburg are certainly pushing higher upfield now, with all 10 outfield players camping in Dortmund’s half. If the visitors can get Sancho away on the break, however, it could be devastating.
J. Brooks
Yellow Card
Wolfsburg
66' Sancho is involved straight away, nipping away from Brooks and drawing a foul, which sees the Wolfsburg defender go into the book.
J. Sancho
J. Brandt
Borussia Dortmund
65' Another change for Dortmund. Brandt’s race is run, with Sancho now coming on to offer some real pace to the visitors’ attack.
J. Brekalo
D. Ginczek
Wolfsburg
64' Ginczek got the winner against Augsburg yet has failed to impress today, and now he has made way for Brekalo.
F. Klaus
J. Roussillon
Wolfsburg
64' Roussillon sustained a knock earlier on and has not really offered much since. He has now been replaced by Klaus, in the first of two Wolfsburg changes.
62' SAVE! Firm goalkeeping from Burki, who gets a strong punch on Steffen’s venomous half-volley. Finally, Wolfsburg are applying some pressure.
62' SAVE! Firm goalkeeping from Burki, who gets a strong punch on Steffen’s venomous half-volley. Finally, Wolfsburg are applying some pressure.
61' Another missed chance for Wolfsburg! Medmedi does well to twist and turn his way clear of several defenders before prodding in a cross which evades everyone, only to then find Arnold at the back post. He can’t adjust his feet quickly enough, though, and Dortmund are able top clear their lines.

59' Prior to today, Dortmund had not conceded in any of their last six Bundesliga meetings with Wolfsburg. Apart from that glaring chance for Steffen, the visitors have not come under much scrutiny so far.
57' It’s a disappointing free-kick from Arnold, who directs a weak shot straight into the Dortmund wall.
T. Delaney
Yellow Card
Borussia Dortmund
55' A first booking of the game goes the way of Delaney, who lunged in late and high on Arnold.
53' With Hummels now out of Dortmund’s defence, and that early chance for Steffen, Wolfsburg should be confident they can make some inroads. However, they have to be much more adventurous than they were in the first half, meaning there could be gaps for Dortmund to exploit at the back.
50' All five of Steffen’s goals this Bundesliga season have come in 2020. Three of his last four have been headers, however.
48' OFF THE BAR! That should really be 1-1! The ball falls kindly to Steffen, who races through one-on-one with Burki. The Dortmund goalkeeper manages to close the angle and force Steffen into a strike, and the Wolfsburg attacker fails to keep his cool, with his effort rattling away off the woodwork.
46' Wolfsburg get the second half underway!
E. Can
M. Hummels
Borussia Dortmund
46' There has been one change at half-time. Hummels has gone off for Dortmund, with Can coming on to replace him.
Wolfsburg have been poor and must surely improve after the break, so Favre will know his Dortmund side could do with at least another goal to wrap up this result and move to within touching distance of Bayern, who face Eintracht Frankfurt later.
A first half of few clear-cut chances comes to a close, with Dortmund leading 1-0 thanks to Guerreiro’s strike just after the half-hour, which came after Haaland had failed to make contact with Hazard’s cross.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: WOLFSBURG 0-1 BORUSSIA DORTMUND.

32' GOOOOAALLL!!! Dortmund hit the front, it’s 1-0! Finally, the visitors manage to get in behind Wolfsburg’s defence – Brandt releasing Hakimi, who in turn feeds Hazard. His cross is missed, rather comically, by Haaland, but Guerreiro is well placed to tuck home.


29' Despite seeing plenty of the ball, Dortmund have lacked composure and penetration once they have reached the final third. They found things easy against Schalke last time out, yet so far today are missing a cutting edge.
27' Mehmedi gets down the left for Wolfsburg and flicks in a cross, which Weghorst gets to. His header, however, flies over the top-right corner.
26' It’s good play from Haaland to win a towering header in midfield and release Brandt, yet the former Bayer Leverkusen playmaker fails to find a team-mate with his pass and the attack breaks down.
24' Wolfsburg have managed to wrest back some possession in recent minutes, and the only meaningful attempt of the match from either side remains that Hazard shot.
21' Wolfsburg have lost their last four Bundesliga home games against Dortmund, by an aggregate scoreline of 11-2. They have never suffered five consecutive home defeats against any side in the top flight.



19' Mbabu looks to be Wolfsburg’s main outlet, with the full-back pushing high up the right flank. Again, he delivers a decent, searching cross, this time to the back post, but no team-mate can get on the end of it.
17' A first opening for Dortmund, as Hazard crafts some space on the edge of the area and wastes no time in unleashing a curling, left-footed effort towards the top-left corner. Casteels would have been caught out, but there was too much on Hazard’s strike and it sails wide.
15' Dortmund have stepped up the control in recent minutes and have enjoyed 70 per cent of the possession so far, with Wolfsburg struggling to keep a hold of the ball when they have it.
14' Dahoud has made an impressive start for Dortmund in the heart of midfield. He is normally down the pecking order but, with injuries to Axel Witsel and Marco Reus – whose usual inclusion up top would allow Brandt to play deeper – he is getting a good run in the side.
12' Neither side has settled into their rhythm as of yet, though Dortmund seem to be starting to click through the gears when they approach the final third. No chances as of yet, though.
7' Wolfsburg are certainly pressing high in the opening stages, with Mbabu driving forward down the right and lofting in a decent cross. Weghorst attempts to meet it, but Hummels puts him off, with the header looping harmlessly into Burki’s arms.
5' Wolfsburg have only taken one point from their last nine Bundesliga games against Borussia Dortmund – in a goalless draw in Dortmund in January 2018.
3' An early pause in play, as the referee requires some assistance with his equipment. Play gets restarted with a Wolfsburg throw-in high upfield, yet the hosts only manage to concede possession, though Haaland can’t take advantage the counter.
1' KICK-OFF! We are up and running at Volkswagen Arena!
