Batshuayi has space down the right, he cuts it back, Guerreiro is caught out again, but its cleared by Akanji.
Besiktas look to have switched to a narrower back three.
Both sides look vulnerable in the fullback areas, so you wouldnt be surprised if there was more goals in this.
GOOD SAVE! Besiktas give it away, Haaland finds Brandt who backflicks to Reus whose shot from close range is well saved by the keeper's leg.
OH MY GOD! Malen does well to square the ball back to Haaland and from a few yards out he lethargically blazes it over.
Besiktas are still having more of the ball but Dortmund have more men behind the ball now with that goal cushion.

KICK OFF: We are underway in Turkey.
COUNTDOWN: 5 mins till kick off!
The other game in Group C is Ajax v Sporting Lisbon.
Dortmund manager Marco Rose believes Erling Haaland can get even better.
Ahead of the game, he said: "He’s an excellent player, we all know that.
"[He is] a player who knows he still has potential for development.
"I think he’s a young player who can, of course, still gain experience at the absolute top level, who has to learn to deal with resistance with certain things."
Rose added: In terms of heading, [Haaland] showed at the weekend at Leverkusen that he’s working on that too and scored a beautiful header.”
Besiktas are joint top of the Turkish Superleague with 10 points from 4 games so come into this game in good nick.
