Borussia Dortmund

Reus refuses to rule out title bid

7th April 2019, 14:08 by Daniel McCarthy

Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus insists the Bundesliga title race is not over despite their 5-0 thrashing by Bayern Munich.

Going into the game at the Allianz Arena, Dortmund were two points ahead of their rivals, and in a good position to stop them from winning their seventh straight title and first under Niko Kovac.

However, Dortmund were blown away by Bayern in the first half of the match, with goals from Mats Hummels, Robert Lewandowski, Javi Martinez, and Serge Gnabry putting the game beyond any reasonable doubt in the first period.

Lewandowski added a second later on to inflict only the third loss of the season on Dortmund, but also relegating them to second in the table.

And, while Reus admitted after the game they were not good enough on the day, he is confident they still have a great chance of the title.

"It's a massive disappointment," Reus said after the game, as reported by spox.com.

"There's no doubt we fully deserved to lose. We didn't put Bayern under the slightest bit of pressure.

"Bayern have the clear psychological advantage, but they also have two or three tough games to come.

"There's no point in us talking about the title if we play like that again, but there's only one point in it and things can change very quickly in the Bundesliga. We have to show a completely different side to ourselves next Saturday. We've fought back before, and we'll just have to see what happens."
