"It was better with the lucky goal from Pulisic".

Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic's technique may have been momentarily off when he looked to send the ball into the Stuttgart danger-zone during the teams' Matchday 29 meeting at the Westfalenstadion, but the United States of America magician had no regrets when his skewed cross found its way into the net for his fourth goal of the campaign.

Borussia Dortmund bolstered their hopes of a top-two finish in the Bundesliga after claiming a comfortable 3-0 victory over VfB Stuttgart at Signal Iduna Park on Sunday.

And while the effects of last weekend were evident in a nervy opening, their concerns over becoming Stuttgart's fourth straight away victim were eased by a fortuitous Pulisic opener, the United States global seeing an intended cross drop over a red-faced Ron-Robert Zieler and in.

"I actually wanted to hit the far post - which I sort of did - it wasn't so wrong in the end", joked Pulisic.

Pulisic then set up Maximilian Philipp made it 3-0 in the 59th minute, tucking away the rebound after his initial shot was saved by Ron-Robert Zieler.

Batshuayi, who has now scored seven goals in nine league games since arriving in January, could have added another soon after when he fired wide.

Needing a moment of inspiration to spark them into life, Dortmund instead got an equally welcome slice of fortune as Pulisic's attempted cross from the right looped over a backpedalling Zieler and went in off the post.

Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez threatened the Dortmund goal when he clipped the crossbar five minutes before the final whistle.

Later, Eintracht Frankfurt moved up into the Champions League places for next season as they went fourth with a 1-1 draw at home to Hoffenheim.

Luka Jovic had given the home side the lead only minutes before.

The result sees Frankfurt in fourth place on the table while Hoffenheim remain in seventh.
