Reus calls for Dortmund belief in Bundesliga battle
Marco Reus says Borussia Dortmund have to keep believing they can win the title after seeing off Freiburg 4-0 on Sunday.
BVB led the way for much of the season but Bayern Munich now hold the advantage, although Dortmund are just one point adrift of the defending champions after Sunday's win.
Reus remains convinced the Bundesliga title battle is not over yet and is already thinking ahead to Schalke's visit on Saturday.
"We grew in confidence during the game and played good football at times," Reus told the official Bundesliga website. "All our games have been difficult, but it was definitely an improvement on our performances in the last two or three weeks."
He added: "We want to keep the pressure on Bayern right until the end, and fortunately we were able to do that today.
"We've got two days to recuperate, and then we'll start preparing for the derby [against Schalke]. It's not a normal game, we know that - but we're at home, we're full of confidence again and we want to keep fighting at the top of the table. We have to keep believing we can win the title."
