thumbnail Hello,

The former Borussia Mochengladbach man impressed in the cup outing, and is raring to go ahead of the season curtain raiser against Werder Bremen on Friday.

Marco Reus is desperate to get the Bundesliga season underway after bagging his first goal for Borussia Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal against Oberneuland on Saturday.

The 23-year-old, who joined the German champion from Borussia Monchengladbach for 17 million euros over the summer, struck first in BVB's comfortable 3-0 win at the Weserstadion.

As well as being happy to have put in a good showing, Reus admitted that he cannot wait to play in front of a full house at Signul Iduna Park when his club faces Werder Bremen on Friday night.

"Quite simply, these fans are unbelievably great," he continued to Bild. "It was a great taster ahead of Friday, when we will play against Werder in front of 80,000. I really can't wait."
