  • Arsenal 1 Dortmund 2. Lewandowski's late striker steals the points for the visitors. The Gunners not at their best.

  • One last effort from the Gunners. Gnabry sees a pass down the middle cut out. Arteta then has a shot from distance charged down by Subotic.

  • Almost there now the visitors. Arsenal look beaten. They look to have run their race.

  • Arsenal can't get out of their own half. Dortmund doing really well to play out time. Hofmann wins a free-kick down by the corner flag. The ball then slips behind for a corner. Wenger returns to his seat, with the raining pouring down.

  • Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Dortmund have the ball by the corner flag. Lewandowski can't keep it there, but Arsenal have little option but to lump it long. The ball comes back at them and Koscielny concedes a free-kick. Visitors take their time.

  • Szczesny almost caught out as he gathers a back-pass. Final change then made by Arsenal as Gnabry comes on in place of Rosicky.

  • Cazorla with quick feet as he tries to conjure up something. He doesn't stop running and ends up winning a throw wide on the right. Sagna tries to go long, but Hummels climbs highest to nod clear.

  • Another roll of the dice from Wenger, with Bendtner sent on in place of Ramsey. Meanwhile, Dortmund are looking to lock the door with Reus replaced by Papastathopoulos.

  • Reus delivers from the set-piece. He whips the ball towards the back post, where Koscielny is on hand to nod clear from in front of his own goal.

  • Hofmann chooses the wrong option when he has two team-mates up with him. Dortmund remain on the ball and Ozil is cautioned for diving into a tackle on Hummels down by his own corner flag.

  • Dortmund now looking to play the clock. They are trying to keep the ball away from Arsenal, who have to start pushing men forward. Gaps will open up.

  • Can Arsenal find a route back into the game once more? They were dominating and will be so frustrated to find themselves behind.

  • GOAL DORTMUND - LEWANDOWSKI. The visitors regain their lead with a flowing counter-attack. Grosskreutz racing down the right again. He gets his head up and cross to the back post where Lewandowski arrives to crash home on the volley.

  • Mertesacker and Lewandowski get in a tangle. Decision goes Dortmund's way. They end up going all the way back to their goalkeeper. When the ball is sent forward, Reus fails to find Hofmann.

  • Sagna with a hanging cross from the right. Giroud gets something on it, but glances on rather than at goal. Cazorla sniffing around the back post, but Weidenfeller drops on the ball in front of him.

  • Nice one-two between Arteta and Rosicky. Arsenal trying to be a bit too intricate on the edge of the Dortmund box. The Gunners are picking up all of the loose balls now. Visitors running out of energy.

  • Arteta wide to Ozil, who is playing like an old-fashioned winger now - chalk on the boots. Arsenal get the ball into Giroud, but he can't the ball out of his feet. He goes down, and stays down. He soon bounces back up when he realises Arsenal still have the ball.

  • Arsenal fans in full voice again. They sense this game is there for the taking. Dortmund are offering little in the final third now. The ball isn't sticking for them. Arsenal looking dangerous when they get the ball wide.

  • Arteta out to Sagna, who comes inside to Rosicky. He is caught in possession. Lewandowski trying too much again when he has support. He races back to try and make amends, but Ozil picks out Cazorla. He cuts inside on the edge of the box, but sees a shot blocked.
