Marco Reus scored one and set up two as he began his farewell tour at Borussia Dortmund by leading them to a dominant 5-1 win over FC Augsburg.

It was a special afternoon at the Westfalenstadion as Borussia Dortmund cruised to a 5-1 win over FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga. The win was sparked by a sublime performance from Marco Reus, just one day after announcing that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Youssoufa Moukoko, Donyell Malen and Felix Nmecha were also on target for the Black and Yellows, as they prepared for their Champions League semifinal second leg against PSG with an impressive win over Augsburg.

Edin Terzic made wholesale changes to his starting XI, with one eye on Tuesday's trip to Paris. Highly rated midfielder Kjell Wätjen made his first-team debut, joining the veteran Reus in midfield. Malen returned from his injury to start in attack alongside Moukoko and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens.

Borussia Dortmund could not have asked for a better start as they took the lead after just four minutes. There was plenty of good fortune about the goal, as an attempted Augsburg clearance took two deflections before landing into the back of the net, with Youssoufa Moukoko getting the final touch.

While BVB got lucky with their first goal, the second one was beautifully set up as Jamie Bynoe-Gittens picked out Donyell Malen with a sumptuous cross. And the Dutchman met the cross with a fine header to double the home side's lead.

Moukoko then turned the ball home from Marco Reus' corner to make it 3-0, only for Ruben Vargas to pull a goal back for Augsburg moments later. Reus restored Borussia Dortmund's two-goal lead just two minutes later, lifting the ball past the goalkeeper after being played through on goal by a lovely defence splitting pass from Kjell Wätjen.

Augsburg started the second-half on the front foot, and Gregor Kobel had to be at his best to deny them on a couple of occasions. But any hopes of an Augsburg comeback ended in the 64th minute as Reus turned provider for Felix Nmecha, who made it 5-1 with a neat finish.

The win sees Borussia Dortmund move to within three points of fourth placed RB Leipzig with two games left to play before the end of the season. But with Champions League qualification already in the bag, BVB's main aim now will be to qualify for this season's final. And they will hope to make that dream a reality when they meet PSG on Tuesday.
