Bayer brought on Charles Aranguiz, Adam Hlozek, Sardar Azmoun, Nadiem Amiri and Mitchel Bakker, to replace Robert Andrich, Karim Bellarabi, Kerem Demirbay, Exequiel Palacios and Piero Hincapie.

The referee booked Thorgan Hazard and Nico Schlotterbeck from Dortmund. Bayer had the worst of it though, with Jonathan Tah, Exequiel Palacios, Piero Hincapie and Mitchel Bakker seeing yellow, and Lukas Hradecky then sent off with a red.
