Marco Reus given guard of honor and standing ovation after his final Bundesliga appearance

Reus is set to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer

Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus was given a guard of honor by his team as well as by Darmstadt after being subbed for the final time in the Bundesliga. The BVB skipper was also given a standing ovation by the thronging home fans.

After 12 years at the club, Reus is all set to depart Signal Iduna Park this summer, calling time on a fantastic career with Dortmund. Today, against Darmstadt, the 34-year-old made his final Bundesliga appearance for the side.

He marked his farewell game with a goal too, netting in the 38th minute to double Dortmund’s advantage in the tie, while being taken off with just eight minutes of normal time remaining.

As Reus was about to make his way out of the game, Dortmund players lined-up against each other to make way for Reus, giving him a guard of honor. Darmstadt players were also seen giving him an ovation, while simultaneously, fans across the stadium were on their feet too.

It was a memorable Signal Iduna Park swansong for the Dortmund stalwart, as the side won 4-0 on the night, and ended their rather topsy-turvy top-flight campaign on a high.

Champions League title in sight for Reus and Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga season might be over, but they still have one more go left to play: the Champions League final against Real Madrid on 1 June. Der BVB are the underdogs here, as they are up against the serial winners of the competition. However, stranger things have happened, and winning the title would mark just the perfect farewell for Marco Reus, who will play for the last time as a Dortmund player at the Wembley showpiece.
