Christian Pulisic’s flick to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put Borussia Dortmund level in an attempt to reach the UEFA Champions League’s quarterfinals, and then he scored himself to give the hosts the lead.

Benfica led 1-0 after one leg, but the Westfalenstadion has seen BVB equalize within four minutes of the home leg.

A corner kick zipped to Pulisic at the near post, and the USMNT teenager flicked the ball toward the back post where the Gabonese striker was waiting to head home for 1-1.

Pulisic, 18, now has three UCL assists, adding this helper to group stage efforts against Real Madrid and Legia Warsaw.

He then added his first UCL goal to make it 2-1 on aggregate, with this handy bit of work in the second half. Aubameyang has since added a second to make it 3-1.
