ESPN FC’s Bundesliga correspondent Raf Honigstein explains where it all went wrong for Dortmund in the second half against Tottenham.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic tore a thigh muscle fiber during the 3-0 Champions League defeat at Tottenham on Wednesday.

Pulisic sat out Dortmund’s league game at Nuremberg on Monday and is doubtful for their home game against Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

Pulisic, on loan from Chelsea after completing a €64 million ($73 million) switch to the Premier League team in January, has endured a frustrating season at Dortmund. He has been overshadowed somewhat due to the emergence of English youngster Jadon Sancho, who has scored seven Bundesliga goals and set up 12 more in 22 league appearances.

Pulisic has made only 13 league appearances, scoring one goal with two assists, with only five of those as a starter.

Dortmund host Tottenham for the second leg of the round of 16 on March 5.
