Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Sevilla is a step in the right direction, but 'isn't enough to make everything from recent weeks right,' says Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus.

After two games without a win, Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus was delighted to return to winning ways with a vital 3-2 victory over Sevilla away from home in the first UEFA Champions League last-16 tie between the two teams on Wednesday.
The win was a step in the right direction for Dortmund, who have been struggling in 2021, but Reus says it can't make up for the recent disappointments alone.
"It feels very good. The first half, outside of the early goal, went exactly as we had envisioned it. We sat a little deeper than normal but were very compact. We won the ball well, got it forward onto dangerous positions and took the lead," the BVB captain told DAZN after the game, which saw Dortmund lead 3-1 after the first half.
"In the second half it wasn't as good because we became too passive. As a result we didn't have enough phases of possession and the passes beyond the back line didn't come off. It got harder as the night wore on so we’re delighted to have won.
"One game isn't enough to make everything from recent weeks right. We took an important step tonight and need to aim to do exactly the same if not more in the derby [against Schalke] this weekend."
