The guests have been rolling when Paco Alcácer made it 2-0 deep within the first half. However the sport went sideways for BVB throughout a 5 minute spell that started within the seventieth minute.
Bremen supervisor Florian Kohfeldt seemed like a genius when each of his substitutes, Kevin Mohwald and 40-year-old Claudio Pizarro, scored to even issues up at two.
With the clock ticking towards the ultimate whistle and each groups going for the win, Pulisic had one other golden alternative to be the hero. This time, the American pulled a half-shot, half-cross throughout the face of Jiri Pavlenka’s web. It was as shut as Dortmund would get.
Bayern is now the clear favourite to win its seventh consecutive German title. Barring a serious slip up by the Bavarians in both of their final two video games, at RB Leipzig and at house to Eintracht Frankfurt, Dortmund, which had an enormous lead on its chief rival earlier this season, will accept a runner-up medal for the fourth time within the final seven seasons.
