Reus targets third place finish

Marco Reus

Borussia Dortmund will look to secure a third place finish this season after a crucial win over Hoffenheim, according to captain Marco Reus.

Reus opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute at the Signal-Iduna-Park on Saturday before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the points with his 28th league strike of the campaign.

Andrej Kramaric 86th minute spot-kick proved to be nothing but a consolation for the vistors as Thomas Tuchel’s side inflicted only the fourth defeat to Julian Nagelsmann’s outfit this season.

The result saw Die Kraichgauer drop down to fourth at the expense of BVB, although both sides have already secured their place in the UEFA Champions League next season.

“It was a hard-fought success. Mentally, it was incredibly important to beat a direct rival,” he told the club’s website.

“If we take four points from our last two games, we’ll finish third. That’s our objective.”
