Follow live coverage as Borussia Dortmund host Inter Milan in a crucial Champions League fixture this evening.

Both sides have four points after the opening three matches in Group F. Inter began their campaign with a disappointing 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague at home, before a narrow defeat in Barcelona and a 2-0 victory over Dortmund in Milan.

Dortmund meanwhile began encouragingly, holding Barcelona to a goalless draw. They then beat Slavia Prague – only to miss the chance to move level on points with the Spanish giants when they lost at Inter Milan. Follow live coverage below.



Full-time: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

And it’s all over in Dortmund! The hosts never truly got going in the first half and were punished for it…

 

But they came out with a vengeance in the second half and rattled Inter, ultimately completing the comeback through two Hakimi goals and one from Brandt.

 

The pressure on Favre eases somewhat…


94: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

The opportunity arises to kill off the game and Dortmund go for it…

 

And are only denied by some last ditch defending!


92: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

Dortmund are torn between trying to kill off the game and trying to just hang onto the result.


86: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

Lazaro surges up the right and shimmies between the Dortmund defence.

 

His floated cross is claimed by Burki though.


82: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

Inter have started to play their way back into it, but they’re running out of time.


76: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

Hakimi gets his second by slamming it past Handanovic on the angle inside the box.


76: Dortmund 3-2 Inter

 

The comeback is complete! Hakimi STRIKES AGAIN!


73: Dortmund 2-2 Inter

 

Lukaku comes off. Not his day today. He’s struggled to involve himself in much of the action.


71: Dortmund 2-2 Inter

 

It’s all Dortmund at the moment. They’re the only side who look like winning it.

 

Sancho blasts well over from outside the box though – they won’t win it like that.


68: Dortmund 2-2 Inter

 

Witsel goes close! The Belgian’s diving header drifts just wide of the post!


64: Dortmund 2-2 Inter

 

There’s the EQUALISER! Conte will not be happy with his Inter side.

 

Not just for letting a two-goal lead slip, but for the manner in which they did so.

 

Dortmund have a throw-in on the left wing, deep in the visitors’ half, and Brandt soon finds himself on the ball and running at goal, effectively unopposed. He tucks it past Handanovic from close range to draw Dortmund level!


61: Dortmund 1-2 Inter

 

Nearly a second for Dortmund! The move starts with some silky footwork around the Inter area before Brandt cuts a sharp cross from the left into the centre.

 

Witsel can’t quite get on the end of it! It’s momentary mayhem in the Inter box though.


59: Dortmund 1-2 Inter

 

Hazard gets on the end of a swift attack by Dortmund, but drags his shot from the edge of the box wide of Handanovic’s goal.


54: Dortmund 1-2 Inter

 

Another corner for Dortmund. They’re ramping up the pressure at the moment. Inter are having to weather a bit of a storm.


50: Dortmund 1-2 Inter

 

And the hosts have one back! Gotze receives the ball in the box and cuts it inside for Hakimi, whose scuffed shot bobbles past Handanovic.

 

Dortmund are right back in it, just like that.


50: Dortmund 0-2 Inter

 

Dortmund win a corner after some nice work around the edge of Inter’s box…


46: Dortmund 0-2 Inter

 

We’re back underway.


Half-time: Dortmund 0-2 Inter

 

Inter’s second goal just bets better with every viewing.

 

Intricate build-up play in their own half, an inch-perfect ball from Lautaro sprayed out to the right, then it’s cut back for Vecino, who’s striding towards the edge of the box.

 

He directs it neatly into the bottom left. Tidy, tidy goal.
