Live Commentary

  • And that's it. All over, great result for Dortmund.
  • 90'
    Wonderfully done by the home side after one of the most boring first half showings ever. Hannover were just overmatched.
  • 90'
    Not much time left. Dortmund showed why they are the class of the league. What a good half out of them.
  • 85'
    SubstitutionMario Götze Antônio da Silva
  • 83'
    Assist L. Barrios
  • 83'
    Goal Kevin Großkreutz
  • 83'
    Its 4, and this one is over. After such a dull first half now the class of Dortmund can be seen. 4-1.
  • 80'
    SubstitutionMats Hummels Felipe Santana
  • 79'
    Turned ugly for Hannover. Looks like not much of a way back in this one. Dortmund seem to be getting stronger.
  • 76'
    SubstitutionManuel Schmiedebach Carlitos
  • 73'
    Assist Mario Götze
  • 73'
    Goal L. Barrios
  • 73'
    Barrios, it's 3-1. Little doubt left now. Hannove would need something special to get back in. Hint of offside on the third, but no call and Dortmund are back on the attack.
  • 70'
    SubstitutionRobert Lewandowski Jakub Blaszczykowski
  • 70'
    Hannover trying to fight back now. A bit more pressure and Konan has been a menace.
  • 66'
    Yellow Card Sofian Chahed
  • 65'
    And now it's Dortmund on top. Barrios with a powerful header, his 12th of the year. Looking less and less promising for Hannover.
  • 64'
    Assist Lukasz Piszczek
  • 64'
    Goal L. Barrios
  • 61'
    Yellow Card Mario Götze
  • 61'
    SubstitutionChristian Schulz Sofian Chahed
  • 59'
    Assist Kevin Großkreutz
  • 59'
    Goal Mario Götze
  • 59'
    And before the lead can even settle Dortmund have it back. It's 1-1 and now we have a a game on our hands
  • 57'
    Assist Sergio da Silva Pinto
  • 57'
    Goal Mohammed Abdellaoue
  • 56'
    Just over ten minutes gone int he half and Hannover were pushing the pace. Now they have a reward with a goal from the corner the give them a 1-0 lead over the league leaders.
  • 52'
    Yellow Card Manuel Schmiedebach
  • 46'
    SubstitutionKonstantin Rausch Jan Schlaudraff
  • 46'
    Back underway, Let's see if we can get a better show this time around.
  • 45'
    Good chance right at the break for Dortmund, great tackle to stop it, 0-0 at the break. Looked like a great match on paper, hasn't been that to this point. More of a midfield battle with not much in the way of great chances.
  • 40'
    Not much in this so far. Really it's been mostly Dortmund on the attack, but Hannover have held firm and made a few chances of their own. Game needs a goal badly.
  • 34'
    Cherundolo gave up a corner and another name American fans might remember, Nevin Subotic, nearly made him pay for it with a powerful header that flew just over the bar.
  • 32'
    Maybe Hannover's best look of the night right there. A nice run forward, low hard shot, but right at the keeper.
  • 25'
    Looking more and more like the league leaders are in control here.
  • 22'
    Dortmund aren't afriad to have a go are they? Another long range effort. Cherundolo and his pals are going to have to close out even further.
  • 20'
    Levandovsky with long range effort just misses again for Dortmund.
  • 17'
    Real chance for Ya Konan there. Keeper was out for a challenge and the lighting quick striker nearly tapped it home. Dortmund go back the other way and it's Barrios from a long ball who goes close. End to end stuff.
  • 16'
    Better play out of Hannover there. They've struggled to bring it out of their own end so far, but that push was a good example of how to do it.
  • 13'
    And there's a very nice building move from Bayern and Lucas Barrios. Nasty stuff with a little backheal that could have setup a chance.
  • 10'
    Not a lot to talk about in this opening run. Pretty level and tackles are flying in on both sides. The match just hasn't found any kind of stride yet.
  • 1'
    Dortmund in home yellow strip, Hannover i the White and Green. Underway with Hannover captain Steve Cherundolo as our focus player for the Americans Abroad game of the week.
  • Just about set to get underway. Borussia Dortmund and Hannover, top three sides meeting in what should be an exciting Bundesliga tie.
