      Berlin sit second in the table - five points behind leaders Eintracht Braunschweig and will be looking to continue their impressive form which has seen them win six of their last seven matches. The latest victory came at the weekend when they defeated Erzgebirge Aue 3-1 thanks to a brace of goals fr

      The hosts will not need to take second-tier Berlin lightly as they like strong contenders for promotion to the top flight next season, given how well they are doing so far this season after 11 games.

    • 0'
      Hello and welcome to our LIVE match commentary of the DFB-Pokal clash between Borussia Dortmund and Union Berlin.
    • 1'
      We're underway! Dortmund get the game started here at the Westfalenstadion.
    • 2'
      Dortmund have the first attack of the game, Gotze does well in midfield and finds Larsen but the referee awards a free-kick in Union Berlin's favour after a push in the back.
    • 4'
      Quaner is a big, strong striker and he shows that straight away, easily brushing past defenders and holding up the ball for his team which may be vital tonight if Berlin are to come away with a victory.
    • 6'
      First chance of the game goes in favour of the visitors! Redondo does very well down the left to get past several Dortmund defenders and with Quaner available in box, the ball just needs to be pulled back for the striker. However Redondo gets caught in two minds and his shot/cross goes well wide of
    • 7'
      Dortmund chance! Good link up play between Gotze and Mor down the left-hand side for Dortmund leads to a decent shot at goal by Ramos. However it is straight at the Union Berlin keeper and he easily makes the save.
    • 9'
      Dortmund free-kick in a dangerous position! Mor works his tricky and earns a free-kick around 30 yards from goal. Castro to take... It is a poor effort as it hits the wall and the visitors can clear.
    • 12'
      STAT: Jacob Larsen (18y, 37 d) is the youngest Dortmund player to play in the DFB-Pokal since Nuri Sahin.
    • 14'
      First corner of the game goes in favour of Union Berlin, the ball into the box is easily dealt by the Dortmund defence and they once again make their way down the other end of the pitch.
    • 17'
      Dortmund will be eager to get back to winning ways tonight as in the Bundesliga, they have failed to win in the last three games, most recently drawing 3-3 with FC Ingolstadt 04 away from home.
    • 18'
      Gotze chance! The German attacking midfielder did very well to beat his man and found himself in plenty of space on the edge of the box, his shot looked like it was heading into the back of the net but it took a huge deflection off Puncec.
    • 20'
      Quaner breaks through the Dortmund defence and is through on goal! However he doesn't have the pace to run clear and Ginter is able to recover and win the ball back.
    • 23'
      Dortmund are enjoying the vast majority of possession so far here but Union Berlin look like the could be dangerous on the break, after having a couple of good chances to threaten the hosts defence already tonight.
    • 24'
      Larsen is looking very lively tonight down the right-hand side, he is causing the Union Berlin defence plenty of problems so far.
    • 25'
      Another Berlin opportunity! Hedlund this time for the visitors, he tries to square the ball back to one of his teammates from the byline but his pass is a weak one and Dortmund can cut the ball out. Very good play!
    • 29'
      This is an entertaining game for the neutrals! Both teams are having some decent chances so far in this first half. Dortmund are having more off the ball but Union Berlin have also had some good opportunities to open the scoring.
    • 31'
      There is a great atmosphere here inside the Westfalenstadion, both sets of supporters are making their voices heard.
    • 33'
      Couple of corners in a row here for Dortmund, so far they have been unable to threaten the Union Berlin goal from any, with the visitors defence holding firm.
    • 34'
      Another good piece of play from Hedlund down the right for the visitors, he beats Passlack and tries to play the ball to Quaner in the middle but his ball is far too heavy and Dortmund can clear. That was a decent chance to have a shot at goal, but the final ball let them down.
    • 37'
      Can either team break the deadlock before the half-time break?
    • 38'
      DORTMUND CHANCE! GOTZE with a fierce effort at goal from the edge of the box is superbly saved by Mesenholer. The first good save that either keeper has been forced to make.
    • 39'
      SI P. Hosiner SO C. Quaner
    • 39'
      The first substitution of the game looks to have been forced through an injury to Union Berlin striker Collin Quaner, he is replaced by Philipp Hosiner.
    • 42'
      Sahin forces Mesenholer into another good save! The midfielder had plenty of space around him and took a shot from the edge of the box which looked like it could dip under the crossbar but the Berlin keeper is there to tip it over the bar.
    • 44'
      GOAL DORTMUND! They finally have the breakthrough! Unfortunately for Union Berlin it is an own goal by Michael Parensen. It was terrific play by Gotze to find Larsen in the box and his cross is deflected into his own net by Parensen.
    • 46'
      We're back underway! Will the visitors find a way back into this BFB-Pokal game?
    • 48'
      Dortmund with the early possession in the second half, passing the ball nicely along the back line before attempting to go forward.
    • 51'
      Next up for Dortmund in Bundesliga is a home tie against Schalke, who have had a poor start to the season as they currently sit 14th in the table. Meanwhile Union Berlin face Fortuna Düsseldorf at home on Saturday.
    • 52'
      Mor tries his luck with a long range effort! It doesn't come close to troubling Mesenholer as it goes wya over the crossbar.
    • 53'
      Now it is the visitors turn to have a shot at goal! Hosiner tries his luck from the edge of the box but it goes well wide of the goal.
    • 55'
      Parensen is the first player to receive a yellow card.
    • 56'
      The opening 10 minutes of this second half have been just as end-to-end as the first-half. Both teams have had half chances but no clear-cut opportunities by either side.
    • 59'
      The visitors are playing well and trying to carve out opportunities in the Dortmund third, but their final ball isn't quite good enough at the moment, which is allowing the Dortmund defence clear.
    • 61'
      There is a huge wall of red shirts behind the visitors goal, they have terrific support inside the stadium tonight and are certainly making themselves heard inside the Westfalenstadion.
    • 65'
      SI S. Fürstner SO C. Quaner
    • 65'
      Second substitution of the night for the visitors sees Michael Parensen replaced by Stephan Fürstner.
    • 66'
      Dortmund look very comfortable at the moment, perhaps the recent Berlin substitute will allow them to get back into this game, but at the moment the hosts look like they will come out victorious.
    • 68'
      SI O. Dembélé SO C. Quaner
    • 68'
      SI J. Weigl SO C. Quaner
    • 68'
      It's a double substitution by the hosts as Jacob Larsen also comes off, to be replaced by Ousmane Dembélé.
    • 68'
      First substitution for Dortmund as Nuri Şahin is replaced by Julian Weigl.
    • 68'
      Dortmund free-kick in within shooting range! Castro fires it straight at the keeper who comfortably gathers, he should have done better.
    • 70'
      UNION BERLIN GOAL RULED OFFSIDE! The visitors had the ball in the back of the net from a set piece but it is rightly ruled out for offside! Pedersen strayed offside from the ball into the box, his cut back was then put in the back of the net.
    • 73'
      Just over 79,000 fans here at the Westfalenstadion here tonight!
    • 75'
      Still 15 minutes to play here, can Dortmund extend their lead or will Union Berlin grab an equalising goal! Both are playing well and are pushing plenty of players forward.
    • 77'
      Roberto Punčec becomes the second Union Berlin player to receive a yellow card, after a late foul.
    • 79'
      Thomas Tuchel is giving some final instructions to his Dortmund players are they attempt to see out the remaining 10 minutes of this game.
    • 80'
      SI S. Skrzybski SO C. Quaner
    • 80'
      Final Berlin substitution sees Simon Hedlund come off and be replaced by Steven Skrzybski.
    • 81'
      G S. Skrzybski Assist C. Quaner
    • 81'
      THEY'VE EQUALISED! What a goal is it as well! Steven Skrzybski smashes home a volley from the edge of the box, straight into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal leaving Weidenfeller with no chance! It came from a corner which was only part cleared by Dortmund and their defence don't react quick
    • 84'
      That strike by Skrzybski was potentially is first touch of the ball after coming onto the pitch!
    • 86'
      Dortmund are trying to create a goal scoring opportunity at the other end, but to no avail at the moment. This game could be heading to extra-time!
    • 87'
      MOR HITS THE POST! The winger beats Pedersen to fire a shot a goal from close range, his shot beats the keeper but crashes against the post! So close for Dortmund!
    • 88'
      Hosiner tries an acrobatic attempt at goal, but he is put under-pressure from several Dortmund defenders and the attempt goes harmlessly wide of the Dortmund goal.
    • 90'
      There will be three minutes of added time.
    • 91'
      Yellow card is given to Fürstner.
    • 91'
      Here we go again! First period of extra-time is underway.
    • 93'
      Castro, Gotze and Mor still look as lively as ever for Dortmund. If they're to nick a winning goal tonight it is likely to be scored or provided by one of them.
    • 95'
      Redondo with a half chance for the visitors! He gets on the end of a cross but he doesn't get enough power behind the shot and Weidenfeller gathers.
    • 98'
      Another Union Berlin player goes into the book, this time it is Trimmel.
    • 98'
      STAT: Union Berlin's equalising goal ended a streak of 449 min without a goal conceded for Dortmund in DFB-Pokal.
    • 99'
      The foul by Trimmel gave Dortmund a free-kick right on the edge of their area. Gotze takes but fires high over the goal.
    • 100'
      SI S. Rode SO C. Quaner
    • 100'
      Dortmund substitution sees Felix Passlack replaced by Sebastian Rode.
    • 100'
      WHAT A CHANCE! Union Berlin should've scored! They were through on goal but Hosiner's pull back is poor and Dortmund clear. All he had to do was play the ball into the feet of his teammate and he had an open goal to slot the ball into!
    • 103'
      Both teams have certainly given it a good go so far in this second half! Dortmund have had more half-chances but Union Berlin have had the better opportunities to score overall. It could go either way!
    • 105'
      That's the half-time whistle!
    • 106'
      Final 15 minutes is underway!
    • 108'
      Will either team be able to muster up a winning goal or is this game heading to penalties?
    • 110'
      Neither side is threatening to score at the moment, looks like we may well be heading to a penalty shoot-out.
    • 112'
      Less than 10 minutes to go! Dortmund are currently in possession but Union Berlin have done well defensively all game and that doesn't look like changing at the moment.
    • 113'
      Castro with a great chance! The ball ricochets around the penalty area and eventually falls to the feet of Castro around the penalty shot, but he can't keep his shot down and it goes well over the crossbar.
    • 117'
      Mor with the shot! He shoots straight at Mesenholer who initially spills the ball but is able to gather on second attempt.
    • 119'
      Just over a minute left to play and Dortmund are in control of the ball, trying to create one final chance!
    • 120'
      That's the whistle. Penalties it is!
