Marco Reus: “Nobody needs motivating. It’s a do-or-die match.”

Speaking at Borussia Dortmund’s pre-match press conference ahead of their Europa League clash against Rangers on Thursday, Marco Reus discussed the must win game.

“Nobody needs motivating. It’s a do-or-die match. We know what’s at stake and what we need to produce to advance to the next round,” said Reus. “We’re fully focused on getting through to the next round. We have big ambitions and will give everything in our power so that tomorrow is hopefully out day. We must and will show a different side to ourselves. I’m feeling positive about a number of things.”

The BVB captain also commented on the Ibrox atmosphere: “We’re really looking forward to it. We can expect a heated atmosphere but that can also be a big motivator for us. We know the crowd can have a big impact. There’s nothing better than playing in front or and against 50,000 fans.”
