Pulisic: Dortmund aggressive from the start (0:54)

Christian Pulisic breaks down his goal versus Wolfsburg and what to expect from Dortmund this season. (0:54)

Borussia Dortmund showed signs they can thrive this season without suspended forward and Barcelona target Ousmane Dembele by opening their Bundesliga campaign with a 3-0 rout at Wolfsburg on Saturday.

United States international Christian Pulisic scored Dortmund's first league goal of the season after good work by Mario Gotze, who was making his first Bundesliga start since December after illness.

Gotze spotted Pulisic free to his right and played in the 18-year-old, who scored with a great finish inside the far post midway through the first half.

Marc Bartra then made it 2-0 with a brilliantly curled shot from a difficult angle inside the top corner.

Dortmund continued their domination in the second half when Pulisic crossed for last season's top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to open his tally for the 2017-18 campaign.
