Borussia Dortmund – Bayer Leverkusen 1: 0: Marco Reus scores the winning goal

Marco Reus scores for Borussia Dortmund against Bayer Leverkusen
Marco Reus has now scored 154 goals in 358 games for Borussia Dortmund

Marco Reus’ goal in the first half was enough as Borussia Dortmund started the Bundesliga with a narrow win over Bayer Leverkusen.

The goal came after 10 minutes as Reus charged home on the goal line after Karim Adeyemi’s attempt was saved by Lukas Hradecky’s legs.

In stoppage time, Hradecky was sent off after a lengthy VAR check for handling outside his penalty area.

The win follows that of Bayern Munich 6:1 victory in the opening game Friday night.

The game was Dortmund’s first since Erling Haaland joined Premier League champions Manchester City and they are currently without his replacement – former West Ham and Ajax striker Sebastien Haller – who is undergoing chemotherapy for a testicular tumor.

Adeyemi was also substituted after 23 minutes with an injury but Dortmund, who finished second to Bayern Munich last year, looked forward to the game to start the season.
