GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 4-0 Freiburg (Passlack). Haaland, through on goal, could have a third but instead puts it on a plate for Passlack, who taps in.
Two added minutes.
Brandt takes instead and fires into the wall.
Witsel wins a free-kick 25 yards out. Haaland will fancy this.
Freiburg still looking vulnerable on the break, despite having no real hope of getting back into this.
Schulz and Passlack replace the two Dortmund wing-backs.
Dortmund lose the ball inside their own box, but Grifo's snapshot is straight at Hitz.
Reyna makes way for Reinier. He's had a very good afternoon.
Haaland is inches away from a hat-trick, firing narrowly wide from a two-on-two attack. Brandt made a good run and perhaps should have been played in, but Haaland was always going to go for goal there.
Dortmund break from a Freiburg corner but squander an overlap because Meunier plays the wrong pass.
Delaney and Brandt are on for the excellent Bellingham and Reus.
- GoalErling HaalandBorussia Dortmund
GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 3-0 Freiburg (Haaland). It's been coming. Reyna picks up another assist, running at the Freiburg defence before playing a good pass for Haaland, who had made a similar run to the one which produced his first goal, and the Norwegian slams into the roof of the net with an emphatic finish.
Dortmund are close to a third goal and another good move ends with Bellingham crossing for Reus, but he can't keep his header down.
Kwon's through ball just has too much on it for Grifo to reach, but Freiburg looking more lively since the changes.
Schhmid takes the set piece but cannot get it over the wall.
Quadruple change for Freiburg. Grifo, Jeong, Kwon and Schlotterbeck on for Gulde, Sallai, Holer and Petersen.
Hummels lunges in on Holer and believes he won the ball, but the referee is unimpressed and books him.
What a miss! A good Dortmund move creates space for Reyna on the right and his low cross picks out Witsel, eight yards from goal, but he manages to lash over the bar.
Dortmund have started the half ideally. Unless something drastic happens, this should be confortable now.
Witsel's shot from the edge of the box is saved by Muller.
Reyna has provided both assists, taking his tally for the season to three.
- GoalEmre CanBorussia Dortmund
GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Freiburg (Can). Freiburg allow a corner to reach Can, unmarked, who powers a header past Muller to double the advantage.
The visitors get the second 45 started.
Sancho latest. Nothing to see here, or so they say.
HT: Borussia Dortmund 1-0 Freiburg. The hosts lead thanks to Haaland's well-taken goal. They had been fairly ponderous up until that point, but came to life afterwards and had Freiburg on the ropes. Freiburg will be happy to just be one goal behind, and still feel in the game, but have offered very little going forward.
One added minute.
Goals change games and Haaland's certainly has. Dortmund looking comfortable and confident now.
The visitors have a rare chance to break and Sallai takes out his marker by playing a smart ball inside to Santamaria. There's a two-on-one advantage to his left, but Santamaria instead shoots and sees his effort blocked.
Freiburg need the break.
Great double save by Muller! Can's shot comes through a crowd of bodies but Muller is able to get down to his right to save, and he then gets up quickly to deny Hummels on the rebound.
What a talent.
Dortmund are turning it on now and some slick passing give Haaland a shooting opportunity, from a tight angle, and he scuffs wide.
It is now four goals in four games for Haaland so far this season.
Bellingham, frustrated after an attacking pass doesn't come off, wins the ball back and shifts it on to Reyna, who dummies past two defenders and shoots from the edge of the box, but sees his bobbling effort go just wide.
Until that goal, it had been a very flat performance from the hosts.
- GoalErling HaalandBorussia Dortmund
GOAL! Borussia Dortmund 1-0 Freiburg (Haaland). Dortmund ahead and it's that man Haaland again! They win possession in the opposition half, Reyna slips a pass in behind the defence for Haaland, who has made a smart run, and his left-footed shot across the goalkeeper finds the back of the net.
Santamaria and Holer mess up a one-two and Dortmund have a chance to break. Their link-up play is ponderous though and Freiburg have a chance to get back in shape, so Bellingham tries his luck from range and shoots over.
Dortmund put together a nice move - the best of the game - and Bellingham's pass almost sets Witsel up, but the Belgian can't quite get the ball out from under his feet and is tackled before he can shoot.
Hitz comes off his line promptly to intercept a long ball looking for Sallai.
Reyna back on, he looks fine.
Reyna is down after a challenge from Sallai and will require some treatment. He's holding his back.
Gulde wins the ball back high up the pitch, with Freiburg suddenly looking like they have a numbers advantage, but Gulde then plays a poor pass and gives possession away.
The advanced Meunier puts in a cross, but the ball sails straight into Muller's arms.
Reyna lets the ball run out of play in his own half after a turn doesn't come off. He has already made a couple of driving runs, however.
Bellingham almost caught in possession, but instead wins a free-kick.
Gunter wastes an early Freiburg corner, with his poor delivery flicked out of play well before the near post.
Akanji gives the ball away in a dangerous area, but luckily for him Holer is isolated.
Dortmund get the game underway.
The teams are out. The visitors are all in red, Dortmund in yellow and black. It's a soggy day in western Germany.
Dortmund have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven matches against Freiburg.
Not long to go now.
Frieburg won their lone away game in the Bundesliga so far this season, but that represents one of only two wins in their last 15 road matches in the league.
There will be 11,500 fans in attendance this afternoon. Not quite the 'Yellow Wall' Dortmund are so famous for, but better than nothing.
Dortmund's star 20-year-old who is playing, Haaland, has three goals in three games so far this season.
As for Sancho, this is what Dortmund had to say yesterday. Officially he misses out through injury, but there has been a suggestion from some that he is still holing out hope for a move to Old Trafford and that is the real reason for his absence.
Emre Can and Manuel Akanji are the only outfield players in the Dortmund side who played the full 90 minutes against Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup on Wednesday. The midfield dup of Axel Witsel and Bellingham both began that game on the bench, with only the Englishhman coming on, so should provide fresh legs, but managing his players will be on Favre's mind and could prove tricky if the game is tight come the second half.
Dortmund are unbeaten in the last 18 meetings between these two, winning 15 of those games.
As for the visitors, Manuel Gulde takes the place of Vincenzo Grifo in one change from the team that drew 1-1 with Wolfsburg last time out. Nils Petersen, who has scored in each of Freiburg's matches this season, will be a player to look out for, while record signing Baptiste Santamaria starts again.
FREIBURG: Muller, Schmid, Heintz, Lienhart, Gulde, Gunter, Sallai, Hofler, Santamaria, Holer, Petersen. Subs: Uphoff, Boukhalfa, Kluber, Kwon, Itter, Schlotterbeck, Grifo, Abrashi, Jeong.
The headline news is that there is no Jadon Sancho in the Dortmund squad. He missed the last game through illness, but will absence will only lead to more speculation over his future. Manchester United are big admirers, but son far have been unable to agree a deal with the German club and time is running out. The hosts’ line-up is not lacking in exciting young talent, however, notably 20-year-old Erling Haaland, who will lead the line, and 17-year-olds Jude Bellingham and Gio Reyna.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND: Hitz, Meunier, Can, Huummels, Akanji, Guerreiro, Bellingham, Witsel, Reus, Reyna, Haaland. Subs: Piszczek, Reinier, Mory, Dahoud, Drljaca, Passlack, Delaney, Brandt, Schulz.
