Marco Reus: "I'd rather win than play well and lose"

Marco Reus admitted Borussia Dortmund weren't at their best in last night's 2-1 win over RB Leipzig, but was obviously pleased with the result.
Borussia Dortmund sealed their 10th win in a row last night, beating RB Leipzig 2-1 at Signal Iduna Park.

In a post-match interview, Marco Reus suggested that Borussia Dortmund were a little lucky to take all three points.

"To be honest, I didn't really like the manner of this 10th win in a row," the BVB captain told DAZN.

"In the second half, we didn't manage to keep possession of the ball and get into the opposition half in order to find solutions there. That was significantly better in the first half; we then found the gaps on several occasions, which we no longer managed at all after the break.

"Leipzig then played really well, really applied pressure and moved very well in the half-spaces. It was then very difficult for us to switch the play because the energy levels then played a role at some point."

The win means Dortmund sit top of the table, three points ahead of Bayern Munich, who can reclaim the top spot if they beat Stuttgart tonight.

"We're very, very happy that we picked up the 10th victory in a row. But like last week, we really struggled and were hanging on until the end. In the end, I would of course prefer to win rather than play well and lose. That's very clear. Our main wish was to take back top spot in the table, apply further pressure and increase the gap to Leipzig. We managed that," noted Reus.
