2017-18 Bundesliga thread

Christian Pulisic opens the scoring for the German domestic competitive season to give Dortmund an early 1-nil lead in the German Super Cup against Bayern Munich, with Robert Lewandowski scoring moments later to equalize. It's 1:1 in the closing minutes of the first half.

Brooks will miss up to 3 months for Wolfsburg with a tendon issue.

Pulisic scored the opening goal for Dortmund against Wolfsburg, a laser right through central defense. Would have been interesting to see if Brooks would have altered that outcome.

Nevertheless, Pulisic has scored in all 3 competitive matches, and in 3 different competitions (Super Cup, cup and league) already on the season.
