  • Borussia Dortmund cruised past rivals Borussia Monchengladbach, thrashing the side 6-0 at home in the Bundesliga.
  • Marco Reus was on record getting involved in five of the goals at Signal Iduna Park, scoring twice and assisting three.
  • This is the first time in five years that a player in the club has been involved in five goals in a match.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus became the club’s first player in over five years to register five direct goal involvements in a single Bundesliga game, as he starred in Sunday’s thrashing of Borussia Monchengladbach.

The feat had earlier been achieved by current Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in his time at Signal Iduna Park before leaving for Arsenal.

With leaders Bayern Munich having beat Greuther Furth 4-1 earlier on, Dortmund responded with a 6-0 thrashing of coach Marco Rose’s former team at Signal Iduna Park to exert more pressure at the top of the table.

It ensured BVB kept within six points of the champions, while also seeing them get back on track after Thursday’s humbling Europa League defeat to Scottish side Rangers.

Reus, who had just one shot and failed to create a chance against Rangers, was the star of the show, scoring twice and assisting three other goals against his former team.

The Germany international, who scored 36 Bundesliga goals for Gladbach before joining Dortmund in 2012, opened the scoring from close range in the 26th minute, before playing in Donyell Malen for BVB’s second.

Reus laid it off for Marius Wolf to score two minutes after coming on midway through the second half, before then crossing in for teenager Youssoufa Moukoko to tap home.

The 32-year-old’s second goal arrived in the 81st minute, as he finished coolly after latching onto Mats Hummel’s through-ball. Reus could have had a hat-trick when Dortmund were awarded a stoppage-time penalty, but it was Emre Can who stepped up to convert it.

Reus’ display marked the first time a Dortmund player has been involved in five goals in a league match since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did so against Hertha Berlin in November 2016.

It was the 100th Bundesliga meeting between the two sides, with Gladbach having gone into the match on the back of two wins over Dortmund from their last two encounters.
