Bayern are just trying to to take the sting out of this game. They put together three or four passes in midfield before Dortmund press and hassle the ball back.

There'll be plenty of added time that's for sure. The ball hasn't been kicked for a good three minutes. Neuer to take the inital free kick given away by Blaszczykowski.
The referee now feels it necessary to have a word with Klopp and a Bayern coach about an altercation on the touchline. In the mean time, Bayern prepare a change as Emre Can comes on for Gomez.
Klopp is now losing it as he doesn't like the way Rafinha conducted himself as he left the pitch.
It is all kicking off. Blaszczykowski gets elbowed by Rafinha and receives a yellow card. Then the referee brandishes a red card to the Brazilian full-back for the nasty and cynical elbow. He shakes his head as he leaves the pitch and says something else to the man he almost maimed.
Pizarro now getting a talking to after he kicks the ball away following a soft foul on Subotic.
Rafinha given a yellow for going straight through the back of Scheiber. He may have got a toe on the ball but only after bringing down the winger.

Penalty Dortmund. Very soft penalty. Sahin strikes the ball and as Boateng tries to block he lifts his arms into the air and the ball appears to hit his hand. Looked more like it hit his shoulder. Lewandowski to take.
Scrappy play on the wing again. Neither team can get the ball on the floor enough to really create anything at the minute. Amazing energy levels to keep this pressing up.
Only some last ditch defending stops Gomez scoring his second. A lovely one-two with Pizarro and it's a race between the lanky German and Subotic to get the ball. The defender just stretches his leg enough to make the tackle before Gomez gets his shot away.

One minute of added time as Shaqiri whips it in to the near post. It is cleared and Dortmund break. Boateng cynically brings down Scheiber and is booked for the trouble.
Leitner gives away a silly free kick on the edge of the area out wide right. Shaqiri stands over it with his wand of a left foot set to take.

Tymoschuk is flattened by Santana who slips a ball through to Lewandowski. Neuer is alert and off his line sharpish to clear. Tymoschuk now receiving some sympathy from the ref.

Great football from Kehl and Lewandowski to get the ball out from their own penalty area but the final ball only finds Van Buyten when Grosskreutz was steaming down the right wing into acres of space.
Boateng wins a free kick off Lewandowski. He goes dwon clutching his face but the contact was accidental. Not too sure how he's managed to get that hurt.

Lewandowski tries to latch on to a long ball and as he gets the ball down Van Buyten manages to get back at him and clear for a corner.
Gundogan is coming off for Leitner already. Must have picked up an injury int hat collision with Contento.

Bayern look rattled as Boateng gives away another free kick. Lewandowski chases the ball into the corner and saves the ball going out for a goal kick.

Tymoschuk is given a yellow after scything down Lewandowski on the half way line. Looks like Bayern are going to play rough with the star striker with a view to the Champions League final.

The Bayern fans are going crazy. Making all the noise at the moment. Lewandowski breaks though and worryingly holds his hamstring.
Bayern with a sweeping move as Rafinha switches to Contento. The ball gets back to Rafinha via Shaqiri in midfield but the cross is poor.

Just a few minutes more until kick off. The teams are out and ready.
Atmosphere is electric at Signal Iduna Park. The managers may be using this game to roatate their squads but the fans are as passionate as ever. Really looking forward to this one. Both sets of players will be looking to impress to get a chance in the Champions League final.
Despite that, of course, this game is our European Match of the Weekend, and a chance to see what German football is all about. If you've not read our feature-length preview,
Perhaps not surprisingly, then, both sides have rested players. For Bayern the likes of Ribery and Robben don't even make the trip, while Mueller and Martinez are benched. For Borussia Dortmund there's no sign of Bayern-bound Mario Goetze, while Reus, Hummels and Bender are all subs only.
