Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 WONDERFUL GOALLINE CLEARANCE! Michel Bastos surges down the left flank and pulls the ball back for Pukki who plays it on to Kolasinac, but his effort is cleared excellently on the line by Schmelzer. Time is up...
90' +2 Marco Hoger deservedly goes into the book for a rash challenge on Reus. However, Dortmund cannot take advantage from the resulting set-piece and Lewandowski heads wide. Have Dortmund got one more chance?
90' +1 M. Höger gets yellow.
Schalke have the chance to seal the points when they launch another counterattack but Raffael cannot send Pukki free with his pass and Subotic makes a crucial last-ditch tackle.
90' Raffael's fresh legs look to cause the Dortmund defence problems but he cannot find the strike to match his mazy dribble and Weidenfeller watches the Brazilian drag his shot wide. Into three minutes of stoppage time.
88' THAT WAS THE CHANCE! Dortmund should be level when Blaszczykowski's pullback somehow misses everybody in the box and falls kindly for Lewandowski 12 yards out but the Pole's fierce effort is straight at Hildebrand. A yard either side and it would have been 2-2!
87' Dortmund are frantically throwing yellow shirts into the box and Farfan tracks back excellently to prevent Lewandowski from getting his shot away at goal. Three minutes remaining.
85' HOW DID SCHALKE NOT SCORE? Another glorious opportunity is spurned for the hosts as Farfan does brilliantly to get clear down the right and his low cross is somehow poked wide from a few yards out by Pukki. Bastos was steaming into the box as well and he must have put the striker off. Schalke should have wrapped up the points by now.
83' Marco Reus looks to bulldoze his way into the box, but the German international is thwarted by that man again, Matip, who clears upfield.
82' Raffael enters the game and replaces J. Draxler.
Jens Keller makes his final change, replacing the impressive Draxler with on-loan Dynamo Kiev winger Raffael.
Into the final ten minutes at the Veltins-Arena, can Dortmund salvage an equaliser?
79' MISS OF THE SEASON? Matip produces another briliant interception to start a counterattack for Schalke and Bastos cuts the ball back for Draxler whose well-struck effort is parried by Weidenfeller into the path of Farfan who somehow blasts the ball over from a few yards out. How costly could that miss prove to be?
