He’s at it again. Captain America!
It took Dortmund a while to get going against 3rd division Lotte, but they eventually got the breakthrough thanks to Christian Pulisic. The American finished neatly, but also owes a big thanks to Ousmane Dembele.
Dembele showed his skills in the open field once again, dancing past Lotte defenders. He then had the presence of mind to slip it to Pulisic, who had made a very smart run. It was a beautiful goal on a counter attack. And a crucial one at that.
These two are showing once again why they are so highly thought of. Promising players in a promising team.
In the end, it was the first of three goals Dortmund would score against Lotte. Good enough to send the black and yellows to the next round of the Pokal, where they will face Bayern Munich.
