Marco Reus: “We’re unbelievably proud of the second-half.”

Speaking after Borussia Dortmund’s 3-1 win at RB Leipzig, BVB captain Marco Reus praised his team’s performance, in particular their second-half.

“Everyone knows that I’m my own biggest critic,” said Reus. “Today was a massive step forward for me personally and for the team. We’re delighted that we produced a second-half performance like that.

“It was very, very difficult in the opening period. Leipzig put us under permanent stress. We managed to get to grips with that better in the second-half as we had more phases of ball possession.

“We forced them onto the back foot and then we have a certain attacking quality. Leipzig are an outstanding opponent who have conceded the fewest goals.

“With that in mind, we’re unbelievably proud of the second-half. We’re aware of our own strengths. We need to keep showing them. Ideally, consistently over 90 minutes.”

Jadon Sancho opened the scoring in the second-half before Erling Braut Haaland scored a brace. Alexander Sørloth scored a consolation goal for RB Leipzig one minute from time.
