Marco Reus played his last Bundesliga game for BVB in the confident win against Darmstadt. The entire game is marked by farewell. His teammates provide the emotional climax.

Loud ovations for the outgoing club legend Marco Reus, an easy game for the team: Borussia Dortmund prepared for the Champions League final at Wembley with great emotions and a sense of achievement. Two weeks before the premier class showdown against Real Madrid, coach Edin Terzic’s team achieved a 4-0 (2-0) win over relegated SV Darmstadt 98 at the end of the Bundesliga season.

The fact that Reus also made a name for himself as a goalscorer rounded off the big farewell show for the 34-year-old veteran with a big choreography before kick-off in the south stand. His artificial shot into the corner to make it 2-0 (38th minute) was particularly loudly celebrated. Ian Maatsen (30th), Julian Brandt (72nd) and Donyell Malen (88th) scored the other BVB goals.

The emotional highlight of the game wasn’t a goal, but rather the substitution of Reus. When the number eleven appeared on the scoreboard in the 82nd minute, the spectators in the stadium rose to their feet. The Darmstadt players clapped as the 34-year-old visibly moved towards the sideline.

“Nothing but respect. Legend”

The entire team was already waiting for him there. The teammates formed a line and high-fived their captain. Reus handed over the captain’s armband to Emre Can and received a hug from coach Edin Terzic. The 294th Bundesliga in the BVB jersey was Reus’ last for Borussia. He scored a total of 120 goals and won the DFB Cup twice with Dortmund. Only Michael Zorc (131) and Manfred Burgsmüller (135) scored more goals for Dortmund “Nothing but respect. Legend,” wrote BVB at X after the substitution.

After the final whistle, Reus climbed the fence to the huge south stand and celebrated. The long-time BVB captain announced that beer stands would be served that evening. The club showed a picture of a cash register at The farewell beer is on me. Your Marco.”

Dortmund’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl said it was a “farewell as befits a player of this category: with very high esteem, incredibly great emotions and with a good, won game.”

Reus scored one goal and provided one. “You couldn’t imagine it being more beautiful. It would be a picture-perfect farewell if we didn’t want to crown him in two weeks,” said Kehl. “So it was his last act here, but there will be more to come. We have a good feeling that will accompany us to Wembley in the next two weeks.”

Reus wants to continue his career. “I want to keep playing because I feel good and I have the confidence to do so, but now the focus is on the Champions League final.” There had recently been speculation about a move to the USA.
