      That's all from me, hope you enjoyed this one. Until next time.
    • 0'
      Full time and this tie has been a formality for the entirety of the second half. Dortmund have dismantled the second-tier opposition with all the intensity of a hangover. Their individual and collective quality has shown as they hit Paderborn for seven goals after surprisingly conceding the opener.
    • 0'
      Dortmund overcame an early mistake from Burki that gifted the visitors the lead, coming back with goals from Ramos, Castro and Kagawa to take a 3-1 advantage at the break. The home side have rarely needed to get out of second gear, and their superior individual quality has been evident when it's mat

      In-form striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will begin on the bench as Henrikh Mkhitaryan comes into the side to replace him. Julian Weigl and Adrian Ramos have also been handed starts at the expense of Sven Bender and Marco Reus. For the visitors, Marcel N'Djeng and Srdjan Lakic represent the two new

      Paderborn were relegated from the Bundesliga at the end of the 2014-15 season, but in tha campaign, they squared off against Dortmund twice. They came back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw at the Benteler-Arena last November, before Die Schwarzgelben dispatched them 3-0 at tonight's venue in

      Ex-Bayern midfielder Effenberg took over the reins at the 2. Bundesliga side earlier in October after Markus Gellhaus parted ways with the club. He's won his first two games in charge to take them to 13th place, and will want his team to give a good account of themselves here after their first-round
    • 0'
      Dortmund are currently second in the Bundesliga, four points clear of Schalke but already seven behind pace-setters Bayern Munich. It already looks to be a race for the runners-up spot in the German top flight. BVB knocked out Chemnitzer 2-0 to reach this stage of the competition.

      Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the DFB-Pokal clash between Borussia Dortmund and Paderborn at Signal Iduna Park. Thomas Tuchel will lock horns with Stefan Effenberg as both sides plot a way into the third round of the competition. I'm Keeghann Sinanan, your guide for all the action.
    • 1'
      Off we go!
    • 3'
      Early corner for the home side here, won after a mazy run from Castro. However, the visitors deal with the delivery without too much trouble. Good crowd as ever inside Signal Iduna Park.
    • 5'
      As you would expect, most of the possession is being dominated by the home side, who are not pushing the tempo to their usual level quite yet, but are looking confident in possession.
    • 7'
      Early sign of the danger that Paderborn can muster on the counter, as Stoppelkamp races down the left to take advantage of Ginter's lapse in positioning, and he fires a low ball across the face of goal that just misses a connection from a teammate from in close.
    • 9'
      Bit of a lucky break here for Paderborn as Gundogan takes aim from long range, with his effort taking a deflection off a defender before heading out of play. Kruse was moving away from that so he's fortunate that it didn't head on target.
    • 11'
      The pressure is slowly building on the visitors as they struggle to get the ball out of their own half. Their clearances have not been particularly effective, and it's handing the ball right back to the opposition.
    • 13'
      Dortmund are unbeaten in 13 games on their own patch with their last defeat at this ground, perhaps inevitably, coming against Bayern Munich towards the end of the 2014-15 season.
    • 15'
      Ramos takes off a fraction too early between the two centre backs to attack a good cross by Schmelzer, and the flag is up on the near side to signal an offside on the striker.
    • 17'
      Schmelzer then proves his worth in defence as Paderborn skin Sokratis down the left and fashion a great cross towards the back post for Koc to feast, but the Dortmund left-back comes in with a timely defensive header.
    • 19'
      Kagawa has two opportunities to shoot from inside the area, but he tries to cut in onto his left foot. He's crowded out, but recovers possession, only to lose his balance and fire a weak shot into the keeper's arms on the turn.
    • 20'
      Koc has looked lively down the right-hand side, and he beats Schmelzer with some trickery before going for the near post with a quick release, but Burki is down at that spot to thwart the chance.
    • 21'
      G S. Lakić Assist G. Castro
    • 21'
      BURKI HAS BEEN CAUGHT OUT! He takes far too many touches on the ball and invites pressure from Lakic, who robs him of the ball and prods into the back of the net!
    • 22'
      That was just sloppy and inexcusable from Burki to be caught in possession like that. You could sense a little complacency in the way that Dortmund have approached this game. They need to tighten up.
    • 23'
      For all Dortmund's dominance of the ball, you have to say that the visitors from the 2. Bundesliga have fashioned the more clear-cut chances in this game. Is there a response in store?
    • 24'
      THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE LEVELER! The ball is worked out left to Kagawa and Heinloth, covering the Japanese, slips at the crucial second. He's through on goal, but fires well over the bar!
    • 25'
      G A. Ramos Assist G. Castro
    • 25'
      G. Castro gave the assist.
    • 25'
      RAMOS DRAWS DORTMUND LEVEL! He races past his marker to latch onto a through ball, neatly rounds Kruse and lashes his finish into the bottom corner!
    • 27'
      That's two good chances spurned now by Kagawa. After such a storming start to the season, he's hit a bit of a barren patch in front of goal, and his lack of confidence is showing.
    • 30'
      G G. Castro Assist G. Castro
    • 30'
      A. Ramos gave the assist.
    • 30'
      CASTRO PUTS DORTMUND UP FOR THE FIRST TIME! Ramos battles for the ball with a defender and it drops kindly for Castro, who takes it on the half-volley and beats Kruse!
    • 32'
      This is more like it from the home side. Mind you, Paderborn are not out of this by a long shot, and still look capable of causing danger. This is shaping up to be a great game, with three goals inside the opening half-hour.
    • 35'
      Paderborn are starting to adopt a high defensive line here which is causing some problems as Dortmund look to get their runners in behind with direct balls forward from deep areas in midfield.
    • 37'
      Castro is narrowly caught offside as Gundogan attempts to play him in behind the defence. The visitors seem a little traumatized by conceding twice in quick succession and are jittery on the ball.
    • 39'
      Ginter shows good awareness and composure to chase down Stoppelkamp down the left-hand side and keep the ball from reaching a dangerous area. Dortmund are tightening up on the flanks.
    • 41'
      The home side slip up again though, as they give the ball away to Stoppelkamp with a sloppy sequence in possession. However, the Paderborn midfielder can't link with Lakic and Koc and the opportunity disappears.
    • 43'
      G S. Kagawa Assist G. Castro
    • 43'
      Assist by G. Castro.
    • 43'
      THIRD GOAL FOR THE HOSTS! Brilliantly done by Kagawa, as he picks the ball up wide once again, liking brilliantly with Castro, who flicks a lovely pass back to the Japanese, who then lobs a delightful finish home!
    • 45'
      I slated Kagawa for his earlier profligacy, but then he goes ahead and puts away by far his most difficult opportunity! It really was an accomplished finish from him to lob it in from such an angle.

    • 46'
      S. Lakić is replaced with N. Proschwitz.
    • 46'
      Off we go again.
    • 48'
      Slower start to the second half from Dortmund, who are not looking to force the issue yet. They can simply sit back and take their chances on the break as Paderborn have no choice but to push forward at some point.
    • 50'
      The crowd erupts in a loud cheer as Hummels chases the ball, heading straight towards Effenberg. You get the feeling that half of the fans were expecting the ex-midfielder to revert to the tenacious ways of his playing days!
    • 53'
      PENALTY TO DORTMUND! Castro latches onto a long ball over the top but his first touch takes him wide. However, he holds it up and passes to the onrushing Ginter, who is felled by Wydra in the area.
    • 54'
      GUNDOGAN SCORES! He lashes it into the left side of the goal, with Kruse diving the wrong way!
    • 55'
      Penalty goal scored by I. Gündogan!
    • 56'
      This is purely damage limitation for the visitors now, you feel. At 3-1 you might have had hopes of an improbably comeback, but they now need three goals - with Dortmund looking entirely capable of more.
    • 58'
      G G. Castro Assist G. Castro
    • 58'
      I. Gündogan gave the assist.
    • 58'
      CASTRO DOES NOT MISS! It's almost too easy for the home side, as Ginter bursts down the flank. He plays it to Mkhitaryan, who cuts inside and lays it off to Gundogan. From there, the midfielder deftly slips in Castro, who has all the time in the world to finish!

      K. Stöger comes on for M. Sağlık.
    • 60'
      Saglik has a decent chance to cause some danger in the box from a set-piece as plenty of bodies pile into the area. The Dortmund defence, however, deal with the delivery quite assuredly.
    • 62'
      Like picking the wings off a butterfly, this game. It's easy to forget that Paderborn actually settled quicker in this game, but Dortmund's superior quality has shown in the second half.
    • 63'
      SI A. Januzaj SO G. Castro

    • 64'
      M. Ginter is replaced with Ł. Piszczek.
    • 65'
      Dortmund continue to carve the opposition apart at will, running past their initial markers and pulling Paderborn into disarray. The visitors have all their outfield players back in their own half to defend.
    • 67'
      Greatt play from Ramos, who takes his time on the ball to work it onto his left foot, and he lets fly from around the edge of the area, only for the keeper to react with strong hands to push it clear.
    • 69'
      Paderborn's back four has seemingly abandoned any semblance of shape, with Ramos and Mkhitaryan having a lot of pitch behind them to run into. However, the last few deep passes from the hosts have been sloppy.
    • 71'
      SI S. Bender SO G. Castro
    • 71'
      S. Papastathopoulos is done for the day. S. Bender is his replacement.
    • 71'
      GUNDOGAN! Ramos eats up the turf down the right, and smartly lays it off to the onrushing midfielder at the top of the box, but his effort is a little too close to Kruse, who kicks it clear!
    • 73'
      Ramos holds the ball up under pressure well on the 18-yard line, and he drops it off to Januzaj. The Manchester United loanee tries to shape to shoot from there, but misses the target badly.
    • 75'
      Shot of Aubameyang on the bench, with the red-hot striker not needed to provide firepower tonight. He's become quite the prized asset for BVB, and imagine the damage if he had been on the pitch!
    • 78'
      The only thing preventing a sixth or even seventh goal is the almost leisurely pace with which Dortmund attack when inside the opposition penalty area. They don't need to be ruthless, mind, with five goals in the bag.
    • 80'
      This has been a rather clean game, even during the first half when it was still competitive. The referee has not needed to reach into his pocket to book anyone - the challenges have mostly been fair.
    • 82'
      SCHMELZER! Big, big chance for the full-back, who races onto a pass from Gundogan and is clean through on goal. Kruse comes out to close up the angle, and that seems to put the defender off his finish!
    • 84'
      D. Wydra is cautioned by the referee.
    • 84'
      First booking of the game comes with six minutes left as Wydra, who has endured a dreadful evening, brings down Januzaj who, to his credit, tried to stay on his feet initially when confronted with the challenge.
    • 86'
      The free-kick from Januzaj rebounds into the wall and Kruse is able to grab it. Paderborn try to launch an attack down the right, but they allow the ball to run over the byline before a cross can come in.
    • 87'
      G Ł. Piszczek Assist G. Castro
    • 87'
      H. Mkhitaryan provided the assist.
    • 87'
      DORTMUND ADD A SIXTH! Januzaj picks out Mkhitaryan in acres of space down the left, and the Armenian drives past the lone challenge before passing the ball to Piszczek at the back post, who can hardly miss from a yard out!
    • 88'
      Weigl holds onto possession and waits for the run of Ramos, which is made away from goal. He still threads a pass through to him and lines up centrally for the return ball, but it's intercepted.
    • 89'
      G H. Mkhitaryan Assist G. Castro
    • 89'
      The assist came from Ł. Piszczek.
    • 89'
      IT'S SEVEN! Far, far too easy for the home side. Piszczek returns the favour to Mkhitaryan, sliding the ball behind a woeful defensive line for the Armenian to tap in at the back post!
