With the game, which was rescheduled from its original date because of snowy conditions, level at 0-0, Pulisic capped off a Dortmund counter by scoring after an overlapping run on the left-hand side to meet Ousmane Dembele's pass. The original game was called off on February 28 due to heavy snow and a waterlogged pitch, and had been moved from Lotte's stadium to nearby Osnabrueck.

"We want to win every game", Lotte counterpart Ismail Atalan said.

Schurrle then had two good chances to add to Dortmund's lead, and while he was called up for offside with a shot he put wide of the target, there was no whistle moments later as he scuffed his next chance wide of the right post.

Lotte largely contained Dortmund in the first half and even made the better start, with goalkeeper Roman Buerki coming to the Bundesliga side's rescue with a good block to deny Tim Wendel.

Dortmund had a pair of chances within four minutes of the restart, Lotte goalkeeper Benedikt Fernandez denying Shinji Kagawa from a tight angle before Ginter's goal-bound header was diverted behind by Matthias Rahn.
