The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner opened the scoring after only five minutes at the Weser Stadium, capitalising on a defensive error to slot past Jaroslav Drobny. The attacking midfielder - who was playing up front in the absence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - came close to a second goal only six minutes later and was heavily involved throughout as BVB eventually claimed a deserved victory. "I'm back to where I want to be," Schürrle said afterwards.
