Marco Reus on target as Dortmund ease past Eintracht Frankfurt

Marco Reus scored two minutes into his comeback from a torn ligament to set Borussia Dortmund on their way to a 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Reus' return after six weeks out was a welcome boost for a side still struggling to deal with Tuesday's bomb attack on the team bus in which defender Marc Bartra was wounded.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent the ball forward and Christian Pulisic looked up before pulling the ball back for Reus to score with his heel.

"Gol!!!!!" said Bartra on Twitter. The Spanish defender, who had an operation on his hand and arm, was able to watch the game at home following his release earlier after four nights in hospital.

Marco Fabian equalised inside the half-hour mark with a brilliant strike in off the top of the crossbar from 25 yards, but Sokratis Papastathopoulos restored the home side's lead in spectacular fashion a little more than five minutes later.

Sokratis, a defender, wrong-footed one of his opponents with a dummy and let fly inside the far post.

Reus, who was busy throughout the first half, was taken off at the break with a view to the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal in Monaco next Wednesday. Dortmund lost the postponed first leg 3-2 one day after the bomb blasts.

Ousmane Dembele, who came on for Reus, set up Aubameyang to seal it late on a counterattack as Dortmund consolidated fourth place. It took Aubameyang's tally to a league-leading 26 goals, level with Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski.
