Pulisic tallied his ninth Bundesliga goal, tying him with Jermaine Jones and Eric Wynalda for the fourth most by a USA global in the league.

Christian Pulisic may not have meant to score a great goal for Borussia Dortmund against Stuttgart on Sunday, but he will certainly take it.

Borussia Dortmund bolstered their hopes of a top-two finish in the Bundesliga after claiming a comfortable 3-0 victory over VfB Stuttgart at Signal Iduna Park on Sunday.

Dortmund's 6-0 rout by Bayern Munich in the previous round appeared to weigh down the home side. "Things were much more free flowing for us, we had more control of the game in the second half".

That miss mattered little when, within three minutes of the restart, Batshuayi skilfully flicked Mahmoud Dahoud's pass into the path of the overlapping Sahin, who cut the ball back for the Chelsea loanee to side-foot into the bottom far corner.

Pulisic then set up Maximilian Philipp made it 3-0 in the 59th minute, tucking away the rebound after his initial shot was saved by Ron-Robert Zieler.

Sarasota County Sheriff's Office have appealed for further information on the aggravated battery in a bid to catch the driver. The video of the incident shows a grey Mazda 3 and a motorcyclist driving side by side in the two lanes on the road.

Zieler did better to prevent Pulisic from an angle in the closing stages, while Tayfun Korkut's men were denied by the woodwork with five minutes remaining as Gomez struck the crossbar with an effort from range. "We came out with a dominant performance and we're feeling really good going into the derby".

"I was looking for the back post, just for a cross".

Reus could have doubled the largely undeserved lead two minutes later, but volleyed wide from Nuri Sahin's inventive lob into the area.

Frankfurt moved fourth into the last place for Champions League qualification, though it can be overtaken Monday by both Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen, depending on their game's result.

Bayern clinched the title on Saturday to extend its league record to six championships in a row.
