With Marco Reus out injured, Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel has selected Christian Pulisic to be a part of arguably his most important starting lineup of the season. Heading home down 1-0 on aggregate to Benfica in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, Dortmund desperately need a win and to not allow any away goals today.

The spotlight is in the air and Pulisic is the hero Dortmund needs in these dark times. It’ll be a huge chance for him today to make an impact in a very important match and prove that he deserves consistent looks in the starting lineup no matter who is healthy.

You can watch the match on Fox Sports 2 at 2:45 p.m. ET. If you don’t have that channel or aren’t near a TV, you can stream it on FuboTV with a free trial.

I’m sure many of you will be watching along. Feel free to use this thread to chat along. Hopefully our boy does well...
