With an assist in 4 minutes for Mkhitaryan’s success and with a goal in his name in the next minute, Marco Reus began perfect yesterday evening’s match. The group led by Jurgen Klopp started the game in a perfect manner, and from here the play was much easier for the Bundesliga vice-champion.

The hosts reduced the difference, approaching to one goal twice, but each time came out to the ramp Robert Lewandowski with a double in the second half, and provided his team the victory in a 2 goals margin, ahead of second leg which will take place on March 19.

“We started very well. Our tactics worked perfectly, we took an early 2-0 lead and put in a fine display, especially in the first half,” Reus told UEFA’s website.

“In the second period we slacked off a bit and this should serve as a lesson to us for the return leg. Our 2-0 advantage was deserved, as was the final result, I think. I always say it doesn’t matter what the individual does, but to win as a team, and that’s what we have shown today.

“We should take it game by game. Today we took the first step towards the next round, but you could also see that an away team is always capable of scoring.” added the Germany international.
