Full time at Signal Iduna Park! The game ends 1-1 and Dortmund will feel frustrated that they could not make it five wins in a row. The home side were the better team and passed the ball around well but they failed to make their superior play count. Dusseldorf were always looking to steal a goal by hitting their opponents on the counter and they will be delighted that their game plan paid off. Thank you for joining us on Goal.com. See you next time!
Substitution Stefan Reisinger Andre Fomitschow
Dortmund are throwing themselves forward as much as they can to try and find the winner. The visitors are holding on though.
Yellow Card Robbie Kruse
Dusseldorf hit the home side on the counter! Reisinger finds himself in miles of space and dashes forward. He then hits his shot well wide but he could have taken it much closer to goal.
Yellow/Red Ivan Paurevic
Paurevic is sent off for a second bookable offense. He was perhaps a little naive and should not have made the challenge that got him sent off.
Dani Schahin gets forward with the ball for Dusseldorf but ends up committing a foul which stops the attack.
What a miss!!! Dortmund on the attack and a cross comes in from the right. Grosskreutz stretches out and latches onto the cross just a few yards away from goal but he somehow smashes it well over the bar!
Substitution Jakub Blaszczykowski Julian Schieber
Dortmund have responded well to the goal and are settling down. They will try to pass it around well and find a late goal as they did with the first goal.
Assist Robbie Kruse
Goal Stefan Reisinger
Goal for Dusseldorf!!! Great build up play down the right, the ball is hit into the home teams area and Reisinger smashes a precise header into the back of the net!
Balogun hits a shot from far out but it is a wild strike that goes high and wide.
Substitution Marco Reus Ivan Perisic
Yellow Card Ivan Paurevic
Chance for Dortmund! Blaszczykowski finds himself inside the away sides penalty area. He sees Reus in space and switches it to him but the Dortmund forward curls his shot harmlessly wide.
Substitution Ken Ilsö Dani Schahin
Dusseldorf make some good passes down the left flank and look dangerous. Bellinghausen puts a little too much on his pass to Van den Bergh though and Dortmund snatch the ball back.
Substitution Sebastian Kehl Moritz Leitner
Subotic gets the first booking of the match after a bad tackle. The play resumes after Dusseldorf get their physio on to check on their player.
Yellow Card Neven Subotic
The ball is hoofed up field by Dortmund for Lewandowski to control. He gets a head onto the ball but it gently rolls to the Dusseldorf goalkeeper.
Reisinger nearly gets another good chance to score. The ball is hurled into the Dortmund box and nodded into Reisinger's path. Weidenfeller just about beats him to the ball and grabs it after initially making a hash of the save.
Great chance wasted for Dusseldorf!!! They break into the Dortmund box, Weidenfeller comes out but fails to collect and the ball falls to Reisinger who has almost an open goal. He blasts a shot towards the goal but it is then blocked by his own player! Foward Ilso hangs his head in shame after he stopped his team-mate from scoring.
Dusseldorf's midfield are dropping very deep and are allowing Dortmund's full-backs to make constant overlapping runs without being punished.
Corner to Dortmund. The ball is put directly into the box but nobody can take advantage and Giefer finds the ball safely in his arms.
Reisinger starts to work his way deep into the Dortmund half. The winger gets into a promising position but then finds himself isolated as he has no team-mates in support. Two Dortmund defenders close him down and get the ball clear.
So close for Dortmund! Blaszczykowski gets the ball down the right-hand side and puts a deep cross into the box. The ball curves towards goal and Giefer is forced into making a save to stop the cross from landing in his net.
We are back underway in Signal Iduna Park!!!
Half-time here in Dortmund. The home side have been mostly in control of the game with Dusseldorf clearly sitting back and waiting to hit Dortmund on the counter-attack. Dortmund deserve to be ahead through Blaszczykowski's great finish and the visitors will have to get more of the ball if they want to get back into this one. Join us in 15 minutes to see what unfolds in the second half!
Assist Kevin Großkreutz
Goal Jakub Blaszczykowski
GREAT GOAL! Dortmund are one up! It breaks down the right hand side for the home side the ball is hit into the box. Blaszczykowski heads to Grosskreutz who nods the ball back to him, then Blaszczykowski fires the ball acrobatically over Giefer to give his side the lead!
Bellinghausen trying to threaten again down the left-hand side with a pacey run. He brings the ball away from one defender but then ends up heading too close to another and the attack breaks down.
Reus gets fantastic chance to put his side ahead! He finds himself just inside the box with the ball bouncing just in front of him but he slips as he takes his shot and it harmlessly falls into the 'keepers arms.
After some good one-touch play Dortmund break into the Dusseldorf area. Reus hits a hard shot towards the near post and Giefer makes a good save to tip it wide.
Reisinger makes an encouraging run down the right hand side for visitors but fails to cause much danger as Subotic makes a good tackle.

Dusseldorf are struggling to get much of the ball as the home side are dominating the possession with some nice short passes.

We are now underway in Dortmund!!!
Robbie Kruse thinks he has made a great run forward to catch Dortmund off-guard. However, the linesman flags for offside against him and the ball is back with the home side.
Dusseldorf's line-up is as follows: Giefer, Levels, Balogun, Paurevic, Juanan, Van den Bergh, Bodzek, Lambertz, Bellinghausen, Kruse, ilso.
Dortmund's first eleven looks like this: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Hummels, Subotic, Schmelzer, Kehl, Grosskreutz, Bender, Blaszczykowski, Reus, Lewandowski.
Dusseldorf who won their last match 2-0 against Hamburg, are currently 14th in the league table and a win would see them move up to 11th.
Tonight's game will be Borussia Dortmund's third match inside six days but Jurgen Klopp's side have coped well with the fixture list so far and have won their last four games.
