Marco Reus was the beneficiary of a really nice passing sequence by Dortmund as he scored to give the home side a 2-0 lead in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie against FC Porto. The goal was Reus' 10th in all competitions this season, and his third in the Europa League.

Shinji Kagawa played a major role in setting up the goal when he kept possession well at the top of the box despite being surrounded by Porto defenders. Kagawa then hit a perfect pass to Mkhitaryan, who only needed one touch to lay it perfectly at the feet of Reus. The German international did the rest and fired a hard shot, that took a deflection, past a helpless Iker Casillas.

Dortmund had previously taken the lead through Lukasz Piszczek in the sixth minute.

If the result stays the same it puts BVB in a great position going into next weeks second leg in Portugal.
