Dortmund down Gladbach with Reus pulling the strings

22nd December 2018, 12:07 by Neil Foster

Coach Lucien Favre picked out Marco Reus for praise after Borussia Dortmund's victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.

BVB secured a 2-1 triumph over Die Fohlen on Friday night, with Jadon Sancho netting the opener on 42 minutes before Reus doubled his side’s tally after the interval.

Christoph Kramer bagged the visitors' goal on the stroke of half-time but it was not enough and Dortmund now sit nine points clear of Gladbach at the top of the Bundesliga standings.

Reus' strike was his 11th league goal of the campaign and happy Favre hailed the Germany international’s contribution ahead of a welcome winter break.

"It was a deserved victory. We had more possession and chances to score and 2-1 is okay, three points," he told the club's website.

"Marco Reus has played a great first round. He has always been there, has played almost all games, but not in Monaco in the Champions League.

"We are pleased to have a break now."
