The team is currently second in the German Bundesliga, just behind Bayern Munich because of the goal difference.

Borussia Dortmund defeated Stuttgart 3-1 in today’s fixture of the German Bundesliga.

The win continues to give them a place at the top of the table, but they lost the top spot after Bayern Munich massacred Wolfsburg 6-0.

And for footballer Marco Reus, this means the team will continue to fight, to be able to lift the Bundesliga trophy at the end of the season.

“The weather meant it was really brutal out there today. We had control of the game, but Stuttgart were dangerous on the counter,” Reus told the club’s official website.

“We made things difficult for ourselves in the first half, we fell short whenever it came down to playing the final ball.”

“In the second half we were able to up the pace while also keeping our patience,” he continued.

“The most important thing was that we never stopped believing in ourselves, believing that we could come back after the score went to 1-1 and, in the end, believing that we could get the win that we deserved.”

Gotze was intimidated by Klopp when they met for the first time

Mario Gotze and Jurgen Klopp met for the first time at Borussia Dortmund, and the German midfielder explains how this was.

“Stuttgart really parked the bus in front of their own goal. It was really hard picking out the gaps,” coach Lucien Favre added.

“We tried absolutely everything. Stuttgart really had to chase after us and that’s what gave us our chance. Overall it was a deserved win.”

“It was a battle of wills. We really wanted to win, we really wanted to score goals. After we conceded, we just kept doing our thing,” Marius Wolf continued the talk.

“We knew that we would get our chance, and that’s exactly what happened. We just really wanted it out there today and I think that was there for all to see. We’re just taking each game as it comes, we want to win all of our games.”
