Christian Pulisic scored a great opener against Werder Bremen on Saturday as BVB battles Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title. 

The 20-year-old American star wasted no time in grabbing his goal as he made a fantastic run in the opponent's half, picked up the ball from Thomas Delaney, took on four players and calmly put it past Jiri Pavlenka in the sixth minute. It was his third goal of the season. 

It's been an inconsistent season for Pulisic, cursed with injuries, but now fully healthy, the Hershey-born talent aims to help Dortmund beat out first-place Bayern Munich - who won 3-1 against Hannover earlier - for the league title before he heads to the Premier League and Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea. 

Dortmund, however, tied at 2-2 against its opponent and seriously damaged its chances of overcoming Niko Kovac's side. Paco Alcacer grabbed BVB's second thanks to an impressive free-kick just before the break but the home side reduced the deficit in the second half when Kevin Mohwald's shot escaped Roman Burki's hands. Then came 40-year-old Claudio Pizarro, who made it 2-2 and helped his former team with a huge goal. 

Dortmund now trails Bayern by four points with two matches remaining.
