    Fabian still makes really good runs in the offensive third. Very smart player.

    Goetze playing the game of his year.

    72: Sancho draws foul wide on the right that could have been a yellow but wasn't.

    73: Gladbach brings on Traore.

    Mixed feelings. Fun to watch them play this well, but also frustrating that every time they play like this lately, CP isn't on the pitch. Perhaps there's something to it....

    Favre sitting on his subs - but no one is playing tired, everyone has a month off coming up, and tactics are fine, so...

    78' No subs seen coming on for BVB. Has to be one forthcoming soon, either JBL or CP for Guerrero.

    Dortmund really is dominating. Gladbach has only completed 86 passes in their attacking half, compared to 320 for Dortmund.

    Fabian makes an incisive pass in the final third, lost by Neuhaus, but FJ playing well deep into the game.

    80: Fabian enterprising pass to Neuhaus at the top of the box, doesn't do as well as he would like.

    Might see 5 minutes of CP against FJ if he comes on for Guerrero.

    I guess it's entirely possible that we have seen the last of CP in a BVB shirt????o_O

    81: Cuisance for Neuhaus, final Gladbach sub. Fabian unsurprisingly going 90, still playing with energy, but not enough possession as a team to get many more chances.

    Fresh legs / stalling subs could well come soon.

    Favre saving his subs for time wasting in extra time?

    Tactical switch for BMG, playing three at the back, FJ flipped to the left as a winger.

    86: Cuisance really overdoes it hacking and holding Gotze for a yellow.

    Don't think Fabian has seen the ball since switching to a left wing position

    Cuisance not a great appearence so far. Promising situation in the final third and he sprays a wide pass.

    88: Weigl takes a restart passing to a teammate utterly not paying attention. Defense has been a little shaky last 10 minutes - some failed clearances, less effective passing from the back.

    Overall, Weigl played as well as could be hoped given his lack of experience in the position - usually in position, good passing, good physicality.

    90: Fabian sneaking to the far post on the left and open enough, Traore plays it ten feet over his head.

    And that's all 3 subs from Dortmund, no Pulisic.

    Really hope he's gone in January. Totally out of favor. Our "best" player needs ot play. Wolf for Sancho is quite the signal.
