Brandt feeds a lovely ball from the middle of the park out to Hakimi. He wastes little time playing it into the run of Hazard, who flashes a 20-yard shot side of target.

Half an hour gone and it really does have the air of a friendly. Someone needs to give this contest a spark.

Weghorst rises well to meet a left-wing delivery, but can't direct his header on target.

21' 

BVB are looking tidy in possession but are really struggling to get in-behind that Wolfsburg defence. Not much to write home about at the moment.

19' 

If Wolfsburg want to push for that Europa spot, they will need to improve on their home form in the remaining games. They have won just twice on home turf in the league since October.

17' 

Hazard manufactures space on the right edge of the Wolfsburg area, but curls his left-foot effort a few yards wide of the far post.

14' 

STAT: Haaland has scored 13 in 12 matches in all competitions for Dortmund since his January move from RB Salzburg. Indeed, the 19-year-old has netted 10 in just nine Bundesliga appearances. Another goal here would see him equal the Bundesliga record for most goals in a player’s first 10 matches.

13' 

Dortmund are probing after a slow start, but have yet to create anything of note.

12' 

Social media full of plaudits for Goetze.

Elsewhere, Leverkusen in fifth spot have netted early at third-placed Moenchengladbach.

8' 

Mbabu arcs a probing cross towards Weghorst, but Hummels is alert to the danger and manages to get his head to an excellent delivery first.

6' 

Still getting used to hearing every shout from the players on the pitch as it echoes around the empty stadium.

5' 

STAT: Dortmund have shipped 33 goals in the league this season. That's the worst record in the top six coming into this weekend's matches. However, they have not conceded v Wolfsburg in their last six encounters.

Arnold finds space down the left but curves his cross straight into the arms of Burki. He had the time to do more with that.

So, it's sixth against second as two in-form sides lock horns. Wolfsburg are seven league games unbeaten, while Dortmund have won eight of their nine league encounters in 2020.

Dortmund confirm Mario Goetze will leave in the summer.

14.20 

STAT: Only Bayern Munich (75) have notched more goals than Dortmund’s 72 in the league this term. Indeed, 13 of Dortmund’s tally have been in their last five outings.

Wolfsburg coach Oliver Glasner on Erling Haaland's threat: “He is a tough, sturdy striker that Dortmund was searching [for] because they were missing that. The combination of their great wingers, Hazard, Brandt, Sancho or Reina, who are very fast and quick, and his sturdiness in the middle fits very well and has made Borussia Dortmund’s game much better

14.00 

Dortmund coach, Favre: "Wolfsburg has changed a few things tactically. They have a more concrete first team and are very stable.”

Wolfsburg make three changes to the side that edged to a 2-1 win at relegation-threatened Augsburg. Jerome Roussillon and Daniel Ginczek, who netted the 91st minute winner last week, join returning top scorer Wout Weghorst back in the line up.

The big news from an English perspective, is that Jadon Sancho is once again named among the substitutes. He is joined on the bench by former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can as Lucien Favre sticks with the team that romped to a 4-0 rout of neighbours Schalke last time out.
