Eventually losing their home match against Bayern Munich, which had resident top-scorer of theirs Erling Haaland face Robert Lewandowski, the best central forward worldwide right now, Borussia Dortmund captain and winger, Marco Reus, also referring to the controversial penalty kick Bayern won the match by, told Sky Sport Deutschland:

"In the first half we enjoyed an incredible amount of space up front, while in the second half we were in control. I always had the feeling that we could win the game.

I think the penalty decision is harsh. Mats [Hummels] tried to play the ball with his head. Of course, he also needs his body for that, that's clear. What upsets me even more is that the referee says my action against Hernandez was just a bit of upper body and doesn't even look at it. During the game, I didn't think the scene was so clear, but now, when I see it on TV, at the very least he has to look at it.

It was a wild game. In the first half, we enjoyed an incredible amount of space up front, but didn't make use of it. In the second half we equalised to make it 2-2 and kept up pressure. We always had the feeling that we could win the game. And then, of course, it is doubly bitter when we are punished like that".
