Manchester United-linked star not giving up on Champions League

Marco Reus

Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus believes his side can overcome Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Borussia Dortmund play-maker Marco Reus is enjoying a great season despite his side’s struggles in the Bundesliga title-race and the Champions League.

The 24-year-old has scored 13 goals and assisted a further nine in 21 Bundesliga appearances this season, reportedly attracting the attentions of Barcelona and Manchester United among others.

United’s hopes of luring Dortmund’s star-player have been given a significant boost as a result of Barcelona’s transfer ban, although a failure to secure Champions League football may yet hinder them.

For David Moyes and his men, a top-four spot in the Premier League has all but gone, and their hopes of securing European football next season now hinge on overcoming Dortmund’s domestic rivals Bayern Munich.

United’s chances of reaching the semi-finals are slim, yet for Reus’s Dortmund side, it’s almost mission impossible.

Jurgen Klopp’s men trail Spanish giants Real Madrid 3-0 from the first-leg in the Spanish capital, and with a number of key players missing through injury, an unlikely Borussia Dortmund comeback would rank among the very best ever witnessed within the sport.

Despite the likelihood of his side being eliminated, Marco Reus has yet to admit defeat and believes anything in football is possible.

We have not yet given up. If we play like we did today [against Wolfsburg] in the first-half then it will be very difficult. If we play like we did in the second half, we stand a better chance.” He told

The task is really difficult, but we will give everything and you never know, in football, anything is possible.”
