    Time:90'
    • Olympiacos
    • Borussia Dortmund
    • 90+3 And there's the final whistle. Olympiacos win it 3-1 to take their first points in Group F. Dortmund, meanwhile, are left with a huge task to reach the knock-out stages. Thanks for joining me!
    • 90+1' Mirallas makes way for Fetfadzidis for Olympiacos.
    • 90' They'll be three added minutes.
    • 89' Ibagaza takes a flailing arm in the face, but he'll be ok.
    • 88' Nice skills from Hummels to beat his man. Dortmund are still playing the ball around.
    • 87' Djebbour gets a huge ovation from the home fans, and he deserves it. The striker proved a serious handful for Dortmund.
    • 86' Pantelic replaces goalscorer Djebbour for Olympiacos.
    • 83' The home fans are treating their team to quite a celebration now.
    • 81' Grosskreutz replaces Gotze, as Dortmund appear to have given up hope.
    • 80' On the balance of play Olympiacos deserve to be two ahead. Dortmund have been very poor in the second half.
    • 79' Great ball in from Ibagaza, and it just needed the slightest touch from Modesto.
    • 78' 3-1 OLYMPIACOS! Game over now, as Modesto's near-post flick from Ibagaza's free-kick surely puts the game beyond Dortmund.
    • 75' Olympiacos are looking increasingly comfortable, as they eye their first points in Group F.
    • 74' Great work again from Mirallas, who steal possession on the halfway line and launches the home side forward.
    • 73' Dortmund are trying to build slowly from the back, but they're running out of time here.
    • 72' Makoun is replaced by Maniatis in the holding role for Olympiacos.
    • 70' Dortmund still have to go to The Emirates remember. If things stay as they are, they may well need a victory against Arsenal to stand any chance of progressing.
    • 68' Lewandowski is penalised for handball on the edge of the Olympiacos box.
    • 67' Dortmund now have two out-and-out strikers leading the line.
    • 66' Kagawa makes way for Blaszczykowski, and the Polish striker has a great chance to score with his very first touch. He fails to find the target.
    • 65' Mirallas goes right at the heart of the Dortmund defence and it takes a fine saving tackle to deny him.
    • 64' Dortmund need a slice of inspiration here. They'll be looking to Gotze to provide it.
    • 63' Gotze finds Kagawa, but he can't produce a telling ball in a dangerous position.
    • 62' Ibagaza clips over a clever free-kick, and Modesto's diving header is straight into the arms of Weidenfeller. What a chance to make it 3-1!
    • 60' Mirallas once again brought to ground, this time by Bender.
    • 59' Dortmund are struggling to put passages of play together in the second half so far.
    • 58' Schmelzer goes in the book for a foul on Mirallas.
    • 57' Leitner replaces Gundogan for Dortmund, who's been pretty anonymous tonight.
    • 56' Fairly even start to the second period so far.
    • 55' Subotic tries to find Schmelzer with a raking cross-field pass, but the left-back can't reach it.
    • 54' Djebbour is fouled by Perisic as he tries to break the Dortmund line on halfway.
    • 53' Levandowski chases a ball over the top, but Constanzo is alert to the danger and gets to the ball before the striker.
    • 52' Levandowski is first to a high ball into the Olympiacos box, but he can't direct his header anywhere but upwards.
    • 51' Gotze loses his footing attempting to cut inside the Olympiacos fullback.
    • 50' Perisic involved up front for Dortmund, but he can't locate a team-mate with his flick-on.
    • 49' Big 45 minutes for Dortmund, who would lie bottom of the group on 1 point if they lose here.
    • 48' The lay-off goes to Hollebas...whose drive from 30 yards is just wide of the post. Weidenfeller had it covered.
    • 47' Mirallas wins a free-kick in a dangerous position for Olympiacos.
    • 46' The second half is underway in Athens.
    • 45' There's the halftime whistle and we go into the break with Olympiacos 2-1 up. It's been a thoroughly entertaining first 45. Here's hoping for more of the same in the second half. Back in 15!
    • 44' ALMOST 3-1! A cross from the right lands at the right boot of Djebbour, but his scuffed effort is just wide of the upright.
    • 43' Olympiacos have a real spring in their step now, chasing down everything ferociously.
    • 42' Dortmund need to up their game defensively here. They've looked in trouble every time the home side has threatened.
    • 41' I told you there would be more goals.
    • 40' 2-1 OLYMPIACOS! Djebbour takes possesion inside the box, holds off Subotic and blasts a shot across Weidenfeller and into the roof of the net. Great finish!
    • 38' It's been a remarkably open game so far. Any team could win it, and we could yet see four or five more goals.
    • 37' End-to-end stuff. Djebbour whips in a ball from the right, but Mirallas can't quite get a toe to it. Any contact and it would have been 2-1 to the home side.
    • 36' Gotze breaks and plays in Perisic, who's denied from 10 yards by a fine block from Costanzo.
    • 35' Marcano can't keep the ball in play on the left and Dortmund win a throw-in and the chance to clear.
    • 33' Modesto goes right through Schmelzer chasing a ball to the byline. No hard feelings, and the referee doesn't deem it worth interfering.
    • 32' Gotze tries a cheeky piece of skill by the corner flag, but there's no way through this time.
    • 31' Dortmund swarm forward, but Kagawa goes for goal when he really should have pulled the ball back across from a tight angle.
    • 30' Kagawa has fallen a little short of the performance he gave against Arsenal so far. He's not having a big influence on the game.
    • 29' Kagawa tries his luck from distance. High and wide.
    • 28' Great finish from the Polish striker, who knew exactly where he wanted to place his shot and put it just inside the post.
    • 26' DORTMUND ARE LEVEL! A swift counter-attack leads to a shooting chance for Lewandowski, who composes himself before driving a crisp shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
    • 26' Mirallas does well to win a corner on Olympiacos's left.
    • 25' Gotze should perhaps have looked to shoot earlier there, or find a pass.
    • 24' Great run from Gotze, who gets all the way to the penalty spot before before Mellberg stops him with a crunching tackle.
    • 23' In comes the free-kick, but it goes behind for a goal-kick to the visitors.
    • 22' Ibagaza with some neat footwork to win a free-kick midway inside the Dortmund half.
    • 21' Olympiacos are growing in confidence now. Having been outplayed for the first 10 minutes they're now in control.
    • 20' Almost a second for Olympiacos. Mirallas with the first effort, before Djebbour follows up with a diving header just past the post.
    • 19' Hummels goes for the Hollywood defence-splitting pass. Straight through to Costanzo.
    • 18' Djebbour looks to get onto to a ball over the top, but Dortmund's Hummels makes the clearance.
    • 17' Mellberg's slip almost lets Dortmund in, but Papadopoulos is on hand to make a last-ditch tackle.
    • 16' Modesto's ball forward doesn't appear to have a team-mate in mind. It carries through to Costanzo.
    • 15' The home fans unsurprisingly in fine voice.
    • 14' Kawaga's shot is glanced home by Lewandowski, but the Polish international is rightly ruled offside.
    • 13' Djebbour ruled offside as Olympiacos try to go over the top.
    • 12' Dortmund look a little shell-shocked out there.
    • 10' Judging by the early exchanges you can expect plenty more goals in this one.
    • 9' Great finish from Holebas, who got up really well and gave Weidenfeller no chance in the Dortmund goal.
    • 8' OLYMPIACOS LEAD! Marcano's left-wing cross is headed powerfully home by Holebas, six yards out. Completely against the run of play, but the Greeks go ahead.
    • 7' Gotze's ball in from the left is punched away and finally Olympiacos get the ball upfield.
    • 6' Dominant stuff from the Germans so far.
    • 5' SO CLOSE! Kawaga gets in front of his man, chests the ball down and goes to lob Costanzo from 10 yards out. His effort is too strong and goes over the bar.
    • 4' Perisic with a good run in from the left, and his shot draws a save from Costanzo. He could be in for a busy night.
    • 3' All Dortmund in the early exchanges, before the home side break quickly and win a corner.
    • 2' Dortmund win an early corner on their left. Constanzo punches clear in the Olympiacos goal.
    • 1' And we're underway in Athens, with Olympiacos in red and white shirts, Dortmund in yellow and black.
    • 19:40 The players are in the tunnel, the Champions League theme blaring out on the stadium tannoy. Five minutes until kick-off.
    • 19:20 Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Schmelzer, Gundogan, Bender, Gotze, Kagawa, Perisic, Lewandowski // Subs: Langerak, Kehl, Leitner, Blaszczykowski, Grosskreutz, Lowe, Felipe Santana
    • 19:19 Olympiacos: Costanzo, Modesto, Papadopoulos, Mellberg, Marcano, Orbaiz, Makoun, Mirallas, Ibagaza, Holebas, Djebbour // Subs; Megyeri, Maniatis, Papazoglou, Pantelic, Fetfatzidis, Potouridis, Abdoun
    • 18:34 Both teams are in desperate need of a win tonight. Olympiacos have lost their opening two games in Group F, against Marseille and Arsenal. Dortmund drew at home to Arsenal, but lost last time out to Marseille.
    • 18:31 Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of Olympiacos v Borussia Dortmund. We'll be bringing you the team news when we get it. Kick off is 7.45pm.
