- GoalAchraf HakimiBorussia Dortmund
GOAL! A glorious double for the Dortmund left-back Achraf Hakimi, as he races onto a wonderfully-weighted through ball to slot under Kolar to double his, and Dortmund's tally. It's not undeserved, but it;s certainly a flattering scoreline.
Ball falls kindly to Marco Reus just inside the area, but he tiredly fires into the side netting....

CHANCE! Slavia are really pushing men forward now, and Stanciu's long distance effort is straight down the throat of Burki.

Mick van Buren comes on for Slavia.
WIDE! What a chance for Tecl, who chased a loft over the top, but his half volley misses his near-posted target.
Stanciu's powerful free kick hits the wall, and the follow up shot is also blocked as Slavia stalk an equaliser.
CHANCE! Sancho's blistering pace sets him clean through, but his poked effort is tame and saved by Kolar.

And the restart!
- End of 1st Half
3 minutes added, with both sides looking to end the half with a bang.... but here's Brandt! Saved by Kolar, but the flag is up! Everyone calm down.
Penalty being checked for VAR... no. No push on Hakimi.
- GoalAchraf HakimiBorussia Dortmund
There it is! A fast-paced move, filled with blistering pace, and Achraf Hakimi burns away after Brandt's through ball, before chopping inside and rounding the keeper to slot home. A fabulous strike!
It seems as though Marco Reus has dropped into the 10 role, with Brandt pushing forward as the false 9...
Oh, but what's this? Surely? No! A fabulous delivery from Sancho just evades a sliding Brandt at the far post and the scores remain even. What? Oh, wouldn't have counted anyway. As you were.
CLOSE! Stanciu with a free kick from the corner of the area, trying to catch Burki out at the near post, but the Swiss is equal to it and beats it away for a corner, which comes to nothing.
CLOSE! What a run from Maspoust, who was clean through on goal, but Roman Burki saves Dortmund from an embarrassing deficit!
A lovely move from Dortmund as Brandt weaves through a crowd of bodies with a lovely turn, but Hakimi's delivery is cleared and Slavia play out,
WIDE! A melee in the Slavia six yard box leads to the ball falling to Achraf Hakimi, who slots it wide from close range. What a chance!
A disappointing Stanciu corner is cleared with ease, and Dortmund break out...
Both sides have grown into the game now and are getting a foothold as they feel each other out. Dortmund are the stronger of course, but Slavia's home advantage is definitely playing a part.
CLOSE! A rampaging run down the right from Olayinka results in a low, driven cross, that comes to nothing, but Slavia are growing into the game!
It seems as though Hakimi is playing at left wing, with Guerreiro at left-back; Lucien Favre with an interesting decision I must say...
CLOSE! Dortmund have exploded out of the blocks, converging early onto their hosts, with Jadon Sancho firing wide via a flick off the fingertips of Kolar.
- 1st Half
Off we go!
Teams are out; the infamous anthem plays. Goosebumps.
The teams are on their way... 5 minute warning.
Saying this, it's therefore quite simple to understand why Raphael Guerreiro, a left-back by trade, has been fielded ahead of Achraf Hakimi, to offer him more protection against the threat of Peter Olayinka's pace in the channel behind.
Who are the main men for both sides tonight? Well, you'd expect Dortmund captain Marco Reus to lead by example, but he could perhaps have a muted game leading the line rather than orchestrating the play as a number 10. For Slavia, Nicolae Stanciu will be their main creative spark, but the pace of Lukas Masopust and Peter Olayinka spinning in behind could well cause the Germans some problems.
Dortmund meanwhile have kept their fluid 4-2-3-1 shape, but interestingly have deployed captain Marco Reus as the false 9, flanked by Jadon Sancho and Raphael Guerreiro, with Julian Brandt pulling the strings in the half spaces between the lines.
Tactically, it seems as though Slavia have adopted the same shape as that of Dortmund's; with their focal point Nicolae Stanciu in the number 10 hole, looking to express himself even more than he did at the San Siro, not least of all with home advantage behind him.
Borussia Dortmund: (4-2-3-1) Burki, Piszczek, Akanji, Hummels, Hakimi, Witsel, Delaney, Sancho, Brandt, Guerreiro, Reus.
Slavia Prague: (4-2-3-1) Kolar, Djimsiti, Kudela, Hovorka, Boril, Soucek, Sevcik, Masopust, Stanciu, Olayinka, Tecl.
The team lineups are in, and they are as follows...
Good evening and welcome to Eurosport's live commentary of Slavia Prague against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League. It's all to play for in matchday two, with the Czechs creditably holding Inter Milan 1-1 at the San Siro and Dortmund also looking for their first win of the European campaign as they drew 0-0 with Barcelona at the Signal Iduna Park.
