Commentary

Thanks for joining our coverage for this game. Until next time, goodbye.
Dortmund will now cast their eyes towards next week's draw for the knockout stages but will first look to continue their fine form in the Bundesliga against Werder Bremen. Meanwhile, Monaco's continental adventure is over for this season and they can now place all of their focus upon their Ligue 1 campaign, where they face a stern test against Lyon on Sunday.
A solid performance from a Dortmund side that was heavily changed from the weekend's victory and a 2-0 win, accompanied by Atletico Madrid's goalless draw against Club Brugge, means Lucian Favre's side will enter the knockout stages as group winners. Raphael Guerreiro scored both to condemn further misery upon Thierry Henry's Monaco, who exit the Champions League without a single win in the group stages for the second season in a row. 
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: MONACO 0-2 BORUSSIA DORTMUND
Sergio Gómez
Raphaël Guerreiro
Borussia Dortmund
90' + 2' Third and final change for Dortmund as Guerreiro gets a rest for his fine performance, with Sergio Gomez making a late cameo to earn his debut.
90' + 1' The fourth official has signalled for three minutes of added time at the end of the second period.
90' A comfortable cushion for Dortmund now but they are still not assured of their position as group winners as it can all change if Atletico Madrid score a late goal against Club Brugge.
Paco Alcácer
Assist
Borussia Dortmund
88' Superb play from Pulisic down the left side and it initially appeared that his cross missed everyone before Guerreiro tucked home, although replays show it was a very smart flick from Alcacer to provide the assist.
Raphaël Guerreiro
Goal
Borussia Dortmund
88' GOOOOAL! 2-0! Game over! Pulisic wriggles his way past Raggi and drives a low ball across the face of goal that Alcacer flicks into the path of Guerreiro, who smashes home his second of the game to take his tally of goals in the Champions League to four.
86' Gotze hauls Thuram-Ulien to ground and concedes a free-kick in a dangerous position but Tielemans' delivery is comfortably punched away by Hitz.
84' Guerreiro, who as it stands has scored the goal that will send Dortmund through as group winners, fires a shot at goal from distance but there is not enough dip and it sails over the top of the bar.
83' Dortmund look to have rekindled some spark in the final third but their attacking play has not been too fluid, although this is of course far from their strongest side.
81' Pulisic is looking lively down the flanks for Dortmund but he has struggled to create room to work with, with the Monaco defence standing firm despite his tricks and flicks.
Paco Alcácer
M. Philipp
Borussia Dortmund
79' Another change for Dortmund as Alcacer takes the place of Philipp, providing the visitors with fresh legs in the final third.
S. Diop
Yellow Card
Monaco
78' Diop blatantly pulls back Guerreiro in midfield by the back of his shirt and picks up a yellow card.
J. Serrano
G. Biancone
Monaco
78' Third and final change for Monaco, as Serrano takes the place of 18-year-old Biancone to earn his Champions League debut.
M. Wolf
M. Dahoud
Borussia Dortmund
76' Favre calls for the first Dortmund change of the match as Wolf takes the place of Dahoud.
75' Dortmund have taken their foot off the gas as they look to hold onto their narrow advantage, although they are still showing some willingness to stretch the Monaco defence when an opportunity emerges.
73' Barring a decent spell at the start of the second half, Monaco have failed to offer any real threat in the final third and Hitz has had a very easy time on his Champions League debut.
71' Less than 20 minutes to go in the Champions League group stages for Borussia Dortmund and it is all going well for the Bundesliga leaders, who still occupy first place in Group A as it stands.
K. Thuram-Ulien
H. Massengo
Monaco
69' Second change of the game for Monaco as Massengo is replaced by Thuram-Ulien, the son of France World Cup winner and all-time leading appearance holder Lilian Thuram.
J. Weigl
Yellow Card
Borussia Dortmund
68' Weigl has his name taken for a foul on Diop as he deliberately blocked the Monaco teenager to prevent a counter attack.
67' Monaco are preparing to make another change but they will have to wait for a moment as Dortmund are retaining possession in defence, patiently trying to craft an attacking move.
65' OVER! A huge chance wasted for Dortmund after a fine move sees Hakimi drag a pass back into the middle where Philipp is lurking but he smashes his effort way over the bar.
M. Sylla
R. Falcao
Monaco
64' First change of the game comes for Monaco as Sylla, who is the only player in Henry's squad for the match to have scored in the Champions League this season, takes the place of Falcao.
63' Schmelzer fires a dipping effort at goal that is going wide until Toprak flicks it on with a header, requiring a smart save from Benaglio.
62' Monaco are pegged back into their own half once again as Dortmund look to work their way through the gears and Henry's side look short of ideas at the moment.
60' An hour gone and Dortmund still hold onto a lead that sees them top Group A as it stands. A goal for Atletico Madrid or an equaliser for Monaco would change everything though.
58' Monaco will become the first side to fail to win a single group stage match in the Champions League in two consecutive seasons since Dinamo Zagreb in 2011-12 and 2012-13 if they cannot overturn this scoreline.
56' Dortmund are starting to find a foothold in the game once again as they look to stretch the Monaco defence and extend their advantage but they are yet to craft an opportunity since the restart.
54' A fine charge from Dortmund has the Monaco defence exposed but Guerreiro's shot is deflected behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.
52' Monaco will certainly be happy with the response they have provided since the restart but they are yet to truly test the Dortmund defence, while the visiting side still possess a threat when they push forward.
50' Falcao strikes the resulting free-kick at goal but his attempt is way over the top of Hitz's goal, with the Dortmund keeper still enjoying a relatively quiet evening.
M. Dahoud
Yellow Card
Borussia Dortmund
49' Dahoud becomes the first Dortmund player to be booked in the match after pulling Tielemans from behind, conceding a free-kick in a dangerous position.
47' OVER! A fine start for Monaco as Tielemans whips two dangerous corners into the middle, the second of which is met by the head of Glik but his attempt flies over the top of the goal.
46' Monaco get the action back underway in the French principality.
Dortmund are not home and dry yet but it will require a significant improvement from Monaco if the game is to be turned around. Close attention will be paid to Atletico Madrid's match with Club Brugge as a victory for the LaLiga side would prevent Favre's men from topping the group.
A narrow lead at the break for Dortmund, which puts them top of Group A as it stands, but Favre's side should certainly be further ahead after missing a number of opportunities. At the other end, Monaco have struggled to offer anything and are exiting the Champions League with a whimper.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: MONACO 0-1 BORUSSIA DORTMUND
45' + 2' Tielemans fires a free-kick into the area that causes Dortmund's defence a heap of trouble but Raggi is unable to tuck home at the far post from a very tight angle.
45' + 1' The fourth official has signalled for two minutes of additional time at the end of the first half.
44' A timely reminder to Dortmund that this game is far from over and they need to remain alert. Favre will be sure to remind his side of their responsibilities during his teamtalk at the break.
42' WIDE! Dahoud sloppily concedes possession in midfield and Tielemans' tackle sees the ball fall kindly to Falcao. The Monaco captain tries to beat Hitz from outside the area but his attempt whistles past the wrong side of the post.
41' Borussia Dortmund have conceded just two goals in the Champions League this season- no other side in the competition has conceded less.
39' Edging towards the interval and Dortmund will be happy with how things have gone so far, although they will wonder if they will live to regret those missed opportunities.
37' BIG SAVE! Dortmund continue their push in an attempt to double their advantage as Schmelzer superbly combines with Guerreiro to charge into the box and get a sight at goal. However, Benaglio makes a fine stop to prevent the full-back from finding the back of the net.
35' Careless defending from Dortmund almost presents Diop with an opportunity but alert defending from Diallo relieves the danger.
33' SO CLOSE! Philipp's free-kick is blocked but the ball falls kindly to his feet again and he tees a pass through to Guerreiro. A pass is then dragged across the face of goal to Diallo who, with the goal at his mercy, misses the target against his former side.
Y. Tielemans
Yellow Card
Monaco
31' Tielemans concedes a free-kick in a dangerous position for a foul on Philipp and becomes the third Monaco player to be booked.
31' Monaco still find themselves pegged into their defence as Dortmund continue to work their way through the gears as they seek to extend their lead.
29' Another poor challenge from Falcao, again on Weigl, earns the Monaco captain a talking to from the referee. We are not even at the half hour mark and he is already walking a very fine line.
A. Raggi
Yellow Card
Monaco
27' Raggi picks up Monaco's second booking of the match after expressing his fury towards the officials after the penalty shout.
26' NO PENALTY! Monaco are furious as Diop tries to cut a cross into the middle and it strikes the arm of Diallo. However, the referee is not interested with their protests and waves play on. The hosts can feel extremely hard done by.
25' Monaco have offered very little in the final third during the opening exchanges and have also looked rather shaky in defence, which suggests that Dortmund could extend their lead further as the match progresses.
23' Bennasser is able to continue and makes his way back onto the field after some attention on the sideline.
R. Falcao
Yellow Card
Monaco
21' Falcao is penalised for a poor sliding challenge on Weigl, picking up the game's first yellow card.
20' A break in play as Bennasser requires treatment after a coming together in the middle of the park.
19' A big goal for Dortmund as it puts them above Atletico Madrid as leaders in Group A as it stands. There is still a long way to go though.
17' Dortmund come again as Guerreiro fires a corner into the box that reaches Toprak but the central defender blasts his effort over the roof of the net.
Raphaël Guerreiro
Goal
Borussia Dortmund
15' GOOOOOAL! 1-0 Dortmund! Philipp drives a low ball across the face of goal to Guerreiro to tap home easily, with Monaco's defence parting like the red sea. The hosts were asleep defensively and have been made to pay.
M. Philipp
Assist
Borussia Dortmund
15' A fine assist from Philipp, putting the ball on a plate and showing superb awareness to charge through into the acres of space Monaco had left him.
13' Monaco have scored just twice in the Champions League this season and have conceded 12 goals in five matches.
11' Positive signs continue to emerge for Dortmund but they have been unable to test Benaglio so far, with Gotze flagged offside in the latest venture forward.
9' Badiashile heads the ball behind for Dortmund's first corner of the evening but the visitors are unable to craft an opportunity from the set-piece.
7' Dortmund have established an early foothold on the match but it is clear the players selected are not quite up to speed, as the majority of the XI selected by Favre have been fringe players so far this season.
5' There are plenty of empty seats in the French principality for this game, which is not too surprising given Monaco's struggles this season. Second bottom in Ligue 1 and already eliminated from the Champions League is far below their usual expectations.
3' An early sight of goal for Dortmund as Monaco sloppily concede possession, which presents Gotze with an opportunity. However, he can only drag his effort wide of the mark.
1' We are underway at the Stade Louis II, where Dortmund get the action started.
The two teams are heading onto the field, where Monaco fans will hear the famous anthem for the final time this season.
Monaco have lost six consecutive home matches in Europe, scoring just three goals and conceding 17. However, Dortmund have won just one of their last eight Champions League matches on the road.
Dortmund coach Lucian Favre heavily rotates his side after victory against Schalke on Saturday with only Diallo and Hakimi retaining their spot. Jadon Sancho is out of the squad due to personal reasons, while Marco Reus, Thomas Delaney and Lukasz Piszczek are amongst those to miss out through injury.
Thierry Henry makes three changes to the Monaco side that secured a vital win against Amiens last week, bringing in teenage trio Biancone, Massengo and Diop. Ronael Pierre-Gabriel, Nacer Chadli and Pele are all not in the squad along with a host of injury absentees that includes Danijel Subasic and Djibril Sidibe.
Dortmund subs: Roman Burki, Marius Wolf, Dzenis Burnic, Manuel Akanji, Jeremy Toljan, Sergio Gomez, Paco Alcacer.
Dortmund XI (4-2-3-1): Marwin Hitz; Achraf Hakimi, Omer Toprak, Abdou Diallo, Marcel Schmelzer; Julian Weigl, Mahmoud Dahoud; Christian Pulisic, Mario Gotze, Raphael Guerreiro; Maximilian Philipp.
Monaco subs: Loic Badiashile, Jemerson, Julien Serrano, Gobe Gouano, Moussa Sylla, Kephren Thuram, Antonio Barreca.
Monaco XI (4-4-1-1): Diego Benaglio; Giulian Biancone, Kamil Glik, Benoit Badiashile Mukinay, Andrea Raggi; Benjamin Henrichs, Youri Tielemans, Youssef Ait Bennasser, Han-Noah Massengo; Sofiane Diop; Radamel Falcao.
Dortmund's passage into the knockout stages has already been sealed but the Bundesliga leaders will be hoping to leapfrog Atletico Madrid to secure top spot. They will have to win against Monaco, who are set to finish rock-bottom of Group A, and hope that Diego Simeone's side slip up against Club Brugge.
