#MatchMonday: Marco Reus Hat-Trick Hero

  • Written on:

There are a raft of players in the Bundesliga who continually grab headlines and are linked with big money moves to some of the world’s top teams. One name that keeps ringing out is that of 22 year-old PUMA Football star Marco Reus whose side took on near rivals Werder Bremen this weekend. Before the match everyone was expecting a close affair with both teams tied on 23 points, but with Marco in scintillating form, Möchengladbach romped out 5-0 winners.

Reus got his first of the day in the 23rd minute after picking up the ball and jinking his way through a number of Werder defenders before firing the into the bottom left hand corner. The goal highlighted why he is one of the most sought after players in the league. His second of the game came when a counter attack led to the the Mönchengladbach number 7 racing clear down the left hand side before slotting the ball back into the man of the moment, who deftly chipped the ball into the net.

With Reus showing clinical finishing throughout the game his third and final goal looked to be on the cards and he duly delivered in the second half. After a defence splitting pass the Mönchengladbach number 19 beat the offside trap and fired a shot that was palmed away by the keeper, but Marco Reus found himself in the right place at the right time and slotted the ball home from 17 yards.

With this hat-trick taking the German Wonderkid’s tally to 10 goals in 13 games, how many goals do you think he will finish the season on?
