Commentary

That's all for tonight. Thank you for following the LIVE action from Signal Iduna Park - hope you've enjoyed it. Until next time, have a very good evening!
Robert Mak's first-half effort proved to be the winner, as PAOK closed out their UEFA Europa League campaign with a hard-earned three points against Borussia Dortmund. The German side will have to make do with second place in Group C.
FULL TIME: DORTMUND 0-1 PAOK
There goes the final whistle and PAOK earn a very impressive three points!
THREE MINUTES! That is how long PAOK have to hang on for the victory. They will have earned it, but will not rest until the job is done. What have Dortmund got left to offer?
There is a break in play here and this will concern PAOK. Glykos went down clutching around his groin area with nobody near him. The visitors have used all of their substitutions and the keeper is insisting that he will continue despite wincing in pain.
Rodrigues' pace is providing a good outlet for PAOK on the counter attack and he looks to race onto a long ball forward. Subotic is equal to him, though, and tidies up the danger.
As we enter the last five minutes of this game, Dortmund are still searching for the equaliser. PAOK have defended brilliantly so far, but just need to hang on a little while longer for the three points.
STRAIGHT AT GLYKOS! Januzaj's deep cross is nicely cushioned into the path of Mkhitaryan, who just needed to direct his header either side of the PAOK keeper and he would have equalised.
MUST DO BETTER! PAOK break with venom on the counter attack after stealing possession deep inside their own half, but take the wrong option and Dortmund are able to recover. That could have been game over then.
We are into the final 10 minutes at Signal Iduna Park and it is looking increasingly likely that PAOK are going to hold on for an impressive three points. They must remain tight at the back, however, and cannot ease up.
Garry Rodrigues
I. Mystakidis
PAOK
The final change of the night sees Mystakidis given a rest by Tudor, with Garry Rodrigues taking his place.
ALMOST! Right on cue, the Gabon striker peels away to meet Mkhitaryan's inviting cross. He is very unlucky, however, as his header comes crashing back off the post.
It is alright having plenty of the ball, but Dortmund need to start doing something more effective with it. They must threaten a lot more in the final third and they have the Bundesliga's leading scorer up top for them now in Aubameyang.
The clock is ticking away as Dortmund look for a way back into this game. Top spot is still looking like it will evade them, however, with Krasnodar still 2-0 up against Qabala.
E. Sabo
D. Berbatov
PAOK
The visitors make their second change as Berbatov makes way for Erik Sabo.
PAOK almost get in behind as Mystakidis chases an underhit back pass and Weidenfeller has to sprint out of goal to tidy things up for the hosts.
Mkhitaryan tries his luck from distance again but, this time, is nowhere near the target as his ambitious effort is always rising as it goes high into the stands.
P. Aubameyang
S. Kagawa
Borussia Dortmund
It is the last throw of the dice from Tuchel, as he turns to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who comes on for Kagawa.
M. Leovac
R. Mak
PAOK
PAOK make their first change of the night as Marin Leovac comes on in place of the goalscorer, Mak.
Januzaj continues to pluck away as he tries to force something for his side. Once again, though, PAOK stand firm and are able to clear the danger. If he keeps persisting, he will soon get his reward.
WHY DIDN'T HE SHOOT?! The ball bounces kindly for Januzaj in the penalty area but, rather than shoot first time, he looks to cut inside onto his left foot and is inevitably snuffed out by the PAOK defence.
GREAT EFFORT! Some space opens up for Mkhitaryan to try his luck from distance and the ball is moving dangerously in the area, but flies just wide of the far post.
PAOK get bodies behind the ball! Dortmund continue to press in search of the equaliser, but are unable to get through the blanket of white shirts around the edge of the visitors' penalty area.
Januzaj looks to make something happen around the edge of the PAOK penalty area but he is quickly closed down by the defence, who are able to clear. The Belgian has looked lively, but had no joy as of yet.
Can PAOK weather the storm? They have had their goalkeeper to thank for keeping the score at 1-0 since the restart, but need to tighten up at the back and not let Dortmund have too much of the ball.
GOOD SAVES! Glykos springs himself brilliantly to his left to make a wonderful acrobatic stop from Kagawa's header, before holding onto Ginter's header from the resulting corner.
It seems that Tuchel's words are still ringing in the ears of the Dortmund players since the restart. They have got a lot more urgency in their play and are posing a great threat inside the final third.
NOW NOW! Handbags break out in the PAOK area between Januzaj and Malezas. The referee is quickly across to diffuse the situation, though, and gives both players a stern talking to.
GREAT SAVE! A clever dummy from Ramos puts Mkhitaryan in the clear, but Glykos is quickly out to make a very important stop. It looks like he got caught where it really hurts as a result, however!
H. Mkhitaryan
M. Reus
Borussia Dortmund
The other sees Henrikh Mkhitaryan introduced into the action, with Reus making way.
J. Weigl
S. Bender
Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund make a change at the break with Julian Weigl coming on in place of the disappointing Bender.
KICK OFF! The referee blows the whistle and PAOK get the second half underway.
The teams are making their way back out onto the field and the second half is imminent.
As things stand, Dortmund can only finish second in Group C regardless of what happens here. Krasnodar are 2-0 up away at Qabala in the match and will top the group with three points.
Robert Mak's well taken goal is the difference between the sides at the break. It came against the run of play, however, as Dortmund were on top for the majority of the first 45 minutes.
HALF TIME: DORTMUND 0-1 PAOK
The referee blows his whistle and brings the first half to a close.
We are into the final minute of what has been a decent first half at Signal Iduna Park. An equaliser for Dortmund now would make Tuchel's team talk a lot easier at the break.
A. Januzaj
Yellow Card
Borussia Dortmund
Januzaj is the first Dortmund player to go into the book after being penalised for deliberate handball inside the area.
OFF THE POST! PAOK just about survive thanks to the woodwork! Januzaj cuts in from the wing and his drilled shot is only parried by Glykos and Reus slides in for the rebound, but the ball crashes against the upright.
We are into the final five minutes of the first half and PAOK are looking the better of the two sides at the moment. They are now starting to look very good in possession and will want to keep this up.
Dortmund suddenly have a lot more urgency in their play since going behind. That goal may have come against the run of play, but it only takes one goal to win a football match. They are looking to respond before the break.
D. Konstantinidis
Yellow Card
PAOK
Konstantinidis is the first player to have his name taken by the referee this evening.
All three of PAOK's goals in the Europa League this season have come courtesy of Mak. He scored in the reverse fixture and, once again, took his opportunity superbly here.
I. Mystakidis
Assist
PAOK
Mystakidis provided a very well-timed through ball that led to Mak's goal.
R. Mak
Goal
PAOK
PAOK TAKE THE LEAD!!! And it's that man again! Hummels is caught sleeping and Mak latches onto Mystakidis' through ball, before taking it wide of Weidenfeller and sliding home his third goal of the competition.
The hosts take the opportunity to try and restore their authority on the contest by slowing the pace of the game right down. They are regaining their flow in possession as they look to regain the upper hand.
The flag comes to Dortmund's rescue again as Mak looks to break the offside trap near the halfway line by latching onto a through ball. The linesman got his call spot on, however.
The visitors need to start creating more opportunities like that if they are to have any chance of taking something from this game. The offside flag denied them that time, but that was much better.
OFFSIDE! Tzavellas peels away in the area to latch onto Kace's delivery. He sends the ball into the roof of the net after his initial effort is denied, but his joy is cut short by the assistant's flag on the far side.
This is a good opportunity for PAOK. They have a free kick about 30 yards from goal after Hummels took Mak's legs from under him. It would be completely against the run of play if they were to capitalise here.
CHANCE! That is the clearest opening Dortmund have had so far! Reus gets in behind down the left and fires the ball across goal where Ginter arrives, but only succeeds in sending the ball into the stands.
PAOK have simply not had a look in so far. They are already out of the competition, but they should be looking to restore some pride at the very least this evening.
While Dortmund's possession play remains a joy to watch, they are yet to truly threaten PAOK in the final third. There is no doubt that they have the quality in their ranks to do it, though.
Dortmund are huge favourites coming into this game and another statistic that will back their confidence is the fact that PAOK have won just one of their previous eight meetings with German opposition.
The hosts continue to enjoy neat spells of possession down the left flank. It eventually comes to nothing, however, as Januzaj overhits his attempted through ball and Glykos collects.
Just to prove how dominant Dortmund have been inside the opening 13 minutes, they have enjoyed a whopping 82% of the possession so far to PAOK's 18. They need to make the most of it, however.
OFF THE POST! Some neat play from the hosts down the left leads to Kagawa being found in the box. He works some space for the shot, which takes a deflection before clipping the outside of the post with Glykos flat-footed.
Dortmund push forward again and Ginter looks to pick out Ramos with a fizzing ball towards the area. The striker slips at the vital moment, however, and PAOK are able to clear.
WASTED! Dortmund force the first corner of the game, which is taken by Januzaj. His delivery is cleared by PAOK but, rather than pump the ball back into the box, it is played all the way back to the goalkeeper and the visitors are able to regroup. They should have made more of that.
PAOK have barely had a touch of the ball inside the opening five minutes, but look to catch Dortmund out with a quick free kick. A neat exchange of passes results in Mystakidis' cross just evading his team mates in the area.
Dortmund have made a purposeful start to this game. They have dominated possession and are looking to establish control in the early stages.
KICK OFF! The referee blows his whistle and Dortmund get the match underway.
PAOK have simply not had a look in so far. Their fate is already sealed in this competition but, even so, they should still be trying to restore some pride this evening.
The teams are making their way out onto the field and kick off is just moments away.
PAOK SUBS: Olsen, Leovac, Rodrigues, Sabo, Pelkas, Antonis, Athanasiadis.
PAOK (3-4-1-2): Glykos; Konstantinidis, Skondras, Malezas; Mystakidis, Tziolis, Cimirot, Tzavellas; Kace; Berbatov, Mak.
Igor Tudor also rings the changes for PAOK, with six in all from their win over Panionios in the Greek Super League last weekend. Six of this starting line-up have previous Bundesliga experience. 
DORTMUND SUBS: Burki, Papastathopoulos, Weigl, Hofmann, Mkhitaryan, Leitner, Aubameyang.
DORTMUND (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Ginter, Subotic, Hummels (c), Park; Stenzel, Bender; Januzaj, Kagawa, Reus; Ramos.
Thomas Tuchel has made a whopping nine changes to the Dortmund side that beat Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Marco Reus is one of two survivors from that game along with Neven Subotic, who celebrates his 27th birthday. Ilkay Gundogan, Nuri Sahin and Erik Durm all miss out through injury.
PAOK have already been eliminated from the competition, but Dortmund need to better Krasnodar's result against Qabala to secure top spot in Group C.
Good evening and welcome to LIVE text commentary of the UEFA Europa League. We're at Signal Iduna Park tonight for the Group C clash between Borussia Dortmund and PAOK.
