TROUBLE FOR FREIBURG
The visitors are being pinned in their own half and are struggling to get into Dortmund's half of the pitch.
The hosts are dominating the ball and their pressing has been impressive.
Bellingham makes a really intelligent run into the box off the ball, and Reus tries to feed him in with the through pass, but the Dortmund captain just overcooks it and it goes beyond the Englishman and straight through to Uphoff.

ALMOST A CLANGER!
Uphoff has the ball at his feet for Freiburg, and tries to play it out of defence but almost gives it straight away to Haaland who is pressing him!
He just about gets away with it.
Jeong tries to break on the right for Freiburg but the Korean is stopped in his tracks and Dortmund clear the danger.
Bellingham clips in a cross-field diagonal ball for Erling Haaland on the right wing, but it is just too far in front of him.
He eventually catches up with it, and drills in a low cross into the box but the ball evades everyone! Just a touch from Bellingham would've taken it in!
DORTMUND KEEPING BALL WELL
The hosts have started well, and are dominating possession so far.
Bellingham tries to feed in Haaland at the edge of the box, but the Dortmund striker cannot get anything away and Freiburg clear.
We are underway here at Signal Iduna Park! Freiburg kick us off.
There are only a handful of fans allowed into the famous Südtribüne this evening because of restrictions in Germany, but they are making themselves heard!
KICK OFF APPROACHING
Ten minutes until we get underway here at Signal Iduna Park.
Freiburg's last league win at Dortmund was all the way back in 2001!
Can Marco Rose lead his side to back-to-back wins?
FREIBURG IN THE CHASING PACK
