FT

2nd leg: 3 - 2 (Agg)

Malaga

  • Joaquín 25'
  • Eliseu 82'
  • 90'

    But you can only give credit to Dortmund - what an incredible salvage act. Surely, after that, they will feel they can beat anyone. Absolutely anyone. One of the great late Champions League comebacks.

  • 90'

    The officials, I think we can safely say, had a bad night. Malaga's second goal surely should not have stood, but neither should Dortmund's third.

  • 90'

    And that was after four Dortmund players had appeared offside from the cross that sparked the scramble.

  • 90'

    As with the second Malaga goal, there was a big question mark over offside when the decisive goal was tapped in.

  • 90'

    And that's the end of a quite extraordinary game - two goals in injury time have taken Dortmund into the semi-finals. Astonishing stuff: Dortmund are somehow through!

  • 90'

    Breathless, mad finish here. Malaga thump it forward but Dortmund clear. Seconds to go now...

  • 90'

    GOAL: And the unbelievable has happened! There's a huge scramble. Four players look offside as the cross comes in. Santana taps in on the line, and Dortmund have somehow made it through!

  • 90'

    Three minutes in which Dortmund must score. Schmelzer comes forward, Malaga clear frantically, but the ball comes back in again...

  • 90'

    GOAL: Reus taps in from seven or eight yards and suddenly there's a chance that things could change dramatically!

  • 90'

    Dortmund have been disappointing tonight, but they may well score here as the ball runs loose in the box...

  • 90'

    There will be four minutes. That's the answer to that one.

  • 90'

    Lewandowski flicks, Malaga head clear. We will soon find out how much injury-time there is to be here.

  • 89'

    But you have to admire Malaga - Champions League debutants, beset by financial problems - and now into the semi-finals. That speaks volumes for the spirit of their players.

  • 88'

    Toulalan is booked for a foul on Subotic. Dortmund hammer the ball into the area, but the flag is up. Normal time is nearly up, too.

  • 88'

    Back to the second Malaga goal: Eliseu definitely seemed just ahead of the last defender when he tapped home the goal that has decided this tie for sure.

  • 86'

    Joaquin, who opened the scoring, is off and Francisco Portillo on in his stead.

  • 86'

    Reus takes the free-kick, but bends it high over the top. And that, in terms of the tie, may well be that.

  • 85'

    Gundogan off and Hummels on, a defender who may well serve now as an auxiliary striker.

  • 85'

    ...Joaquin runs into a cul de sac, though. Lewandowski is fouled by Sanchez about 30 yards out and central. Dortmund have to make this count, you feel.

  • 84'

    Dortmund are stunned. They come forward to win a corner, but can't make anything of it and Malaga break...

  • 83'

    The big question: was Eliseu offside when he tapped in? The home fans certainly thought so.

  • 83'

    Baptista is off and Santa Cruz is on as Malaga make another change.

  • 82'

    GOAL: A break from Malaga, and the goal that will take them through. Isco plays the ball in, Baptista scuffs a shot and Eliseu taps in. Malaga are going through!

  • 82'

    The free-kick is headed away, but again Dortmund didn't look convincing from a Malaga set-piece.

  • 81'

    Isco is fouled by Subotic on the left. The Dortmund fans don't like it, but it was a foul.

  • 80'

    Meanwhile, Sahin crosses - but the ball is too long. Ten minutes of normal time remaining.

  • 80'

    Gotze, of course, was the man who had and missed chances in the first leg.

  • 79'

    ...again, Willy makes a wonderful save, diverting the ball away off a trailing leg. Brilliant work from the 'keeper.

  • 78'

    Malaga are in their own half again. Sahin tries to make something happen and the ball is fed through to Gotze, who must score...

  • 77'

    Isco gets forward to cross. Santana gets it clear. Signs of tension in the atmosphere now, and with the clock ticking on that's hardly surprising.

  • 77'

    Isco is fouled inside his own half, and that's a free-kick to the visitors.

  • 76'

    How big a moment could that be? Gundogan tries to thread the ball through and Malaga are there again.

  • 76'

    Amazing save by Willy - the low cross comes in, Reus hammers it goalwards and the goalkeeper somehow steers it around the post. Fantastic stop.

  • 75'

    But in truth, Dortmund have given them less to worry about in this match than might have been predicted.

  • 74'

    Gamez comes forward for Malaga - they're not sitting back just yet.

  • 73'

    Duda is off and Eliseu on as Malaga make a switch.

  • 73'

    He thinks that came off Schmelzer and should have been a corner. He may well have had a point.

  • 72'

    Dortmund have about 18 minutes of normal time left in which to find a goal. Malaga break and Duda tries a curler from the edge of the area, which goes well wide.

  • 71'

    Dortmund will be making two changes: Nuri Sahin is on for Blaszczykowski and Schieber on for Sven Bender.

  • 70'

    Duda plays the ball back to Toulalan about 30 yards out. He blasts one towards Weidenfeller, who just about gets it clear.

  • 70'

    Good play by Gotze, who spins away from his markers in midfield but can't make anything of the space he briefly created.

  • 69'

    Maybe now - the cross comes in dangerously. Lewandowski heads in from a knock-back, but the offside flag, quite rightly, was up.

  • 68'

    If they're feeling anxious in the Dortmund stands, you wouldn't know it. Still the noise is impressive - and the home side need encouragement. They need a goal.

  • 67'

    They will be tested again from a Reus free-kick, but the excellent Demichelis is there again to head firmly away.

  • 66'

    Dortmund just don't look comfortable from those. Again, they launch a long ball forward. Again, it doesn't work. Malaga's defensive discipline has been very sound indeed.

  • 66'

    Duda takes, and Demichelis, looking threatening again, is adjudged offside this time.

  • 65'

    Subotic is adjudged to have handled the ball inside his own half. That's a free-kick to Malaga, and we have seen the danger they can create from these...

  • 64'

    Then Isco tries to get in on the left of the Dortmund area, but that threat is snuffed out.

  • 63'

    Lewandowski feeds the ball through... to nobody in particular. Frustration, and then Camacho brings the ball forward for Malaga but overruns it.

  • 62'

    Referee Thomson adjudges that to be worthy of a booking for the Malaga man, who looks utterly bemused.

  • 62'

    Gamez goes down after Schmelzer, who has already been booked, went across him with an arm slightly raised...

  • 61'

    Schmelzer is booked for a rash, and somewhat frustrated, challenge. That was avoidable.

  • 60'

    It brings a corner, but Malaga deal with it well.

  • 59'

    Better from Dortmund - a quick break down the right from Piszczek is more like the kind of thing Klopp would have wanted.

  • 58'

    Lewandowski tries to provide it with a neat one-two, but Demichelis is there on the edge of the area to make an excellent challenge.

  • 57'

    Dortmund play the ball long towards Gotze, and Willy gets there to claim. Coach Klopp looks frustrated by that directness - think we can safely assume he wants a more measured approach.

  • 56'

    Santana attacks the second ball in, and Malaga are stretched as they hack that one out of the penalty area.

  • 55'

    It's played short and then crossed in. Santana tries to steer a header back across, and Malaga get it away at the expense of another corner.

  • 54'

    He's back on his feet again, though, and the game continues with Santana trying to feed the ball through. The masked Schmelzer gets onto that one, and this will be a home corner.

  • 53'

    Sanchez launches himself into a high challenge and, on the way down, collides with Gamez, who is hurt.

  • 53'

    He gets it all wrong, though, slicing his effort high and wide.

  • 52'

    Dortmund plugging away. Sanchez misdirects a defensive header and Gotze has a chance inside the area here...

  • 52'

    A low Malaga cross comes in, and a hefty Dortmund boot gets it out.

  • 51'

    No, they can't - Reus takes, but it's headed away easily enough.

  • 51'

    Sanchez fouls Reus midway inside the Malaga half. Dortmund have yet to fashion as good a set-piece chance as the Malaga ones. Can they do so now?

  • 50'

    Dortmund, let off the hook again, come forward - but they are careless with their passing and the ball goes out of play on the left. Again, the home fans not terribly thrilled.

  • 49'

    Malaga could have had three goals tonight - two great headed chances, and they will be encouraged by that.

  • 48'

    Weidenfeller makes a fine low save from his header - again, Klopp will be disturbed by the vulnerability his side showed from a set-piece.

  • 48'

    At the other end, a Malaga free-kick - Duda floats it in and Joaquin is in the middle as the ball is headed across by Demichelis.

  • 47'

    They get the ball to Lewandowski on the edge of the area. He fires a low shot goalwards, and Willy smothers it.

  • 46'

    The ball is flicked on and thumped away by Camacho, who was taking no chances. Back come Dortmund once more, though...

  • 46'

    And here we go - Dortmund come forward and win an early free-kick midway inside Malaga territory and out towards the left.

  • 45'

    The players are out on the pitch again, and the second half will be under way in seconds.

  • 45'

    And that's the final action of the half - Malaga have the away goal, and a thrilling second half is in prospect.

  • 45'

    Duda crosses and Joaquin heads - Weidenfeller saves. Good chance for Malaga there.

  • 45'

    There will be one extra minute at the end of this half, and the clock is just ticking into it now. Bender is adjudged to have handled the ball half-way inside his own half...

  • 44'

    Lewandowski moves into the area but, as he challenges for the ball, is adjudged to have fouled Demichelis. Free-kick Malaga.

  • 43'

    ...and comes straight back at Malaga, who are relieved to see it drift out of play with Piszczek threatening.

  • 42'

    Three minutes remaining until the break, and Malaga have a goal-kick. It goes long...

  • 41'

    Reus, inspired, finds a gap on the left of the Malaga area. The visitors shut the door, but only just. Dortmund well and truly lifted by that moment of brilliance.

  • 40'

    GOAL: He races into the area, goes past the 'keeper and slots home for a truly outstanding team goal. Brilliantly done, and just what Dortmund needed!

  • 39'

    Gotze leads a charge towards the Malaga area and, when he lofts the ball in towards the centrally-placed Reus, he flicks it sublimely into the path of Lewandowski...

  • 38'

    Demichelis thumps clear after a Dortmund throw inside the Malaga half, which the visitors felt should have been awarded to them.

  • 37'

    Lovely skill by Reus on the edge of the Malaga area. He shoots but - and this typifies much of what Malaga have done - he's closed down very quickly and the ball ricochets away.

  • 36'

    Just under ten minutes remaining until the break. Joaquin gets the ball again and crosses, but Santana is there to head it away.

  • 35'

    Weidenfeller comes for the ball in, but it's over him and everyone else. Isco, though, comes forward again, but Subotic intercepts.

  • 34'

    They won't like this, either - Malaga come forward briskly and win a corner...

  • 33'

    A long ball goes forward from Dortmund. Too long. 'Keeper Willy claims it confidently, and the home fans didn't seem that enamoured with the direct approach then.

  • 32'

    The flag-kick is well defended by the visitors, and when Dortmund try to get the ball forward again the offside flag is up.

  • 32'

    ...which he does, and Malaga are forced to scramble it behind for a corner.

  • 31'

    Gotze makes a good, determined run into the Malaga area on the right. He can cross low...

  • 30'

    Half an hour gone, and Klopp has some problems he might not have expected. How costly might those spurned opportunities in the first leg feel now?

  • 29'

    The Dortmund fans are doing their utmost to try and lift their players, who are definitely a touch shocked by that Malaga moment.

  • 28'

    Joaquim tries to play a subtle little ball through midfield, but it's too subtle - nobody had anticipated it and Dortmund have no problem in dealing with it.

  • 27'

    The goal seems to have knocked the stuffing out of the home side somewhat - there's suddenly a bit of raggedness in midfield but Malaga can't take advantage.

  • 26'

    What can Jurgen Klopp's side find now? They had looked increasingly comfortable, but now they are in trouble.

  • 25'

    A bad goal from Dortmund's point of view - they were uncertain in defence from the moment Isco flicked the ball on.

  • 25'

    GOAL: It falls to Joaquin, who still has plenty to do but shimmies his way into some room on the edge of the area and shoots low into the corner. Malaga have the away goal they so desperately wanted!

  • 24'

    Malaga, though, are coming forward again - the ball is flipped forward by Isco towards Baptista...

  • 23'

    Reus tries to thread a ball into the area, but Toulalan is there and frees Duda on the right - Santana gets there to deal with that one in a thoroughly no-nonsense way.

  • 22'

    Klopp's side have yet to find the incision in the build-up that they showed in the first leg, when they had - and missed - the chances to have taken control of the tie.

  • 21'

    Baptista tries to get away from Gundogan, but fouls him. Free-kick to Dortmund, deep inside their own half.

  • 20'

    Isco picks up the loose ball and is fouled on half-way. The visitors lose possession but win it back and win a throw on the left, midway inside the Dortmund half.

  • 19'

    The possession is beginning to be dominated by the home side. 'Keeper Weidenfeller kicks long, but Malaga head clear.

  • 18'

    Dortmund have another chance to free Piszczek, who has galloped into space on the right. The ball towards him, however, is poor and runs out for a Malaga goal-kick.

  • 17'

    The ball is then worked to Lewandowski, whose attempted chip into the penalty area deflects back to goalkeeper Willy.

  • 16'

    Free-kick to Dortmund on halfway. Again, they're happy to go back before trying to go forward. Piszczek has, for a moment, a bit of room on the right.

  • 15'

    ...he produces some neat footwork to buy a little space and time before lofting a chip over the top, but not by much.

  • 15'

    But there's momentum being gradually built by Dortmund, and another ball through the middle looks for Lewandowski...

  • 14'

    Another good piece of defensive work follows, the ball being hooked clear of danger by Gamez.

  • 13'

    Gamez makes a good interception as Marco Reus looks to get into space. Then Lewandowski chases a ball into the penalty area...

  • 12'

    Again, Jurgen Klopp's team build from the back, and again Malaga are in there with the challenge. Gamez tries a long ball down the right flank towards Duda, but that won't get them anywhere.

  • 11'

    Camacho intercepts in midfield to give the home side a throw halfway inside Malaga territory.

  • 10'

    Dortmund are being patient: the ball is ushered around the back before being launched towards Gotze on the left. He's beaten in the air, though.

  • 10'

    Nevertheless, it's deemed worthy of a yellow card: a bit of a hasrh booking, that one.

  • 9'

    Bender makes a strong challenge on Joaquin - the referee is coming over to him, but that one didn't look too bad.

  • 8'

    A first glimpse of Lewandowski - but the striker is clearly offside as he moves into space on the left-hand side of the Malaga penalty area.

  • 7'

    Seconds later, Demichelis is there again - this time, Blaszczykowski is the man denied space to run into.

  • 6'

    A few moans from the crowd as Gundogan's pass goes astray - but the rebound falls to Dortmund and Demichelis makes a good challenge to stop Piszczek as he tries to make his way down the right.

  • 6'

    Pellegrini and his players will be pleased with the start they have made - Toulalan comes forward for them, but Sven Bender puts the ball out for a throw.

  • 5'

    The Bundesliga side are struggling to see too much possession at the moment. The ball falls to Isco again, but he is unable to control midway inside the home side's half and it's a throw.

  • 4'

    Malaga have started well, and are passing the ball with confidence. Demichelis and Sanchez combine and the ball is played out towards dangerman Isco - but it eludes him and goes out for a Dortmund throw.

  • 3'

    Dortmund play the ball into the Malaga half, and Sergio Sanchez gets it away. From his clearance, the Spanish side come forward but referee Thomson spots a foul to stop them in their tracks on the edge of the area.

  • 2'

    Malaga have a throw inside their own half - and they need to try to quieten this raucous home crowd. You feel an early Dortmund goal could pave the way to a comfortable victory.

  • 1'

    The visitors get the game going - the ball goes forward long and early, but is headed clear.

  •  

    Craig Thomson, of Scotland, is the referee, and we're about to get under way.

  •  

    Any player unable to be inspired by this sort of setting must be very difficult to impress.

  •  

    The teams are out, the bombastic Champions League theme is playing - but never mind that, the crowd are the ones providing the special atmosphere. It looks, and sounds, stunning.

  •  

    A little over 15 minutes remain until kick-off - there is, as you'd expect, a good atmosphere and a sea of yellow shirts and flags inside the BVB Stadion.

  •  

    The visitors, meanwhile, look like this: Willy, Jesus Gamez, Demichelis, Sergio Sanchez, Antunes, Joaquin, Toulalan, Camacho, Duda, Isco, Julio Baptista.

  •  

    Here's how the home side will line up: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Subotic, Felipe Santana, Schmelzer, Gundogan, Bender, Blaszczykowski, Gotze, Reus, Lewandowski.

  •  

    And although they are at home, Dortmund could yet be made to pay for those misses by a Malaga team that has both surprised and impressed in this tournament.

  •  

    The first leg finished goalless, but that outcome left more than a few Dortmund players - including Mario Gotze - wondering how.

  •  

    Borussia Dortmund will feel they should already have the upper hand in this quarter-final against Malaga, but the Bundesliga outfit spurned the chances they had to take control in Spain.
