Marco Reus still had an audience after the game.
The match winner, who had led BVB to their first victory since 2012 at fear opponents Hoffenheim, still had to go to a small TV interview marathon. And around 30 fans from their blue bucket seats in the emptying Sinsheimer Arena listened to what the BVB captain had to say down there on the lawn.
“The decisive factor was that we scored the goal,” said the scorer after the narrow 1-0 win at TSG. “It turned out relatively early on that whoever gets the first goal will win this game too.”
In the 64th minute there was the decisive double change at BVB: coach Lucien Favre, who had started the rotary machine after the international break and left many regular workers outside, brought Reus and Erling Haaland for the disappointing Jadon Sancho and Julian Brandt. (Bundesliga table)
Zorc: “Haaland and Reus give offensive push”
Sports director Michael Zorc was happy: “With the substitution of Haaland and Reus, we received another offensive push and created a lot of scoring opportunities.”
Just eleven minutes after the double change, the two noble jokers in co-production in front of 6030 fans ensured the third win of the season. Giovanni Reyna headed a long ball to Haaland in midfield. The 20-year-old Norwegian ran away from Kevin Akpoguma and poked the ball past keeper Oliver Baumann to Reus, who just had to push it in easily.
It was Reus’ first Bundesliga goal since February 1 in a 5-0 win against Union Berlin. And his first Joker goal in the league in six years. On March 22, 2014, the international scored the last time after a substitution in the 3-0 win against Hanover.

Super Joker Reus? The role could fit quite well in the future.
The 31-year-old offensive star is known to be extremely susceptible to injuries, and most recently fought his way back after an almost nine-month injury break. Reus, who looks extremely lively these days, could give preference to the 14-year-old mega-talent Gio Reyna (17) in the center and decide the games in the future through his great experience from the bank.
Already in his competitive comeback in the DFB Cup a month ago in Duisburg, Reus met the 5-0 victory as a joker.
That’s why Reus was not in the starting line-up
Why didn’t the crowd’s favorite in Hoffenheim actually play from the start? On SPORT1When asked, Favre said: “Marco Reus was injured for eight days after the game against Freiburg. He didn’t train much and only started training with the team again on Tuesday.”

Reus, who gave his coach the 149th victory in the 300th game as Bundesliga coach at Hertha, Gladbach and BVB, summed up: “We always had a hard time in Hoffenheim. It was an even game and it came in the second Half to be more determined. We are happy that we started the upcoming English weeks with a win. “
BVB will play in the Champions League at Lazio Rome on Tuesday (Champions League: Lazio Rom – Borussia Dortmund, Tuesday from 9 p.m. in LIVETICKER). In October it will also be against Schalke (October 24th), St. Petersburg (October 28th) and Bielefeld (October 31st).
“This year the program is just a bit tighter,” says Reus, “but in principle you have to regenerate a lot, you have to take good care of your body, you have to eat well. Then hopefully everyone will get through.”
