Marco Reus is determined to make history and lead Borussia Dortmund to the UEFA Champions League title in his final game with the club.

In a Bundesliga farewell that could not have been scripted any better, Marco Reus bid goodbye to the Westfalenstadion on Saturday with a stunning free-kick goal and an assist in the 4-0 win over SV Darmstadt.

The Borussia Dortmund fans thanked Reus by organising an incredible tifo before kick-off. And after the game, the 34 year old ran into the stands and led the chants as he celebrated with the Yellow Wall.

With his Westfalenstadion farewell in the books, Reus now has his sights set on making history in his final game for Borussia Dortmund. The BVB legend is eager to set the tone and lead the club to their first UEFA Champions League title since 1997.

Real Madrid will undoubtedly be the favourites in the UEFA Champions League final. But Reus knows that if Borussia Dortmund have belief and give it their all, anything is possible. "We have to have the belief that we can make history," Reus said after Saturday's game. "At the end of the day, we'll be facing Real Madrid, who have won the trophy five times in the last ten years. But the match is still only 90 minutes, and anything is possible. We will believe in ourselves and give everything we have."

"We now have to put everything we've got into this final, because we have the chance to really make history."

Borussia Dortmund have already pulled off a number of big upsets en route to the UEFA Champions League final. And now the toughest test of all lies in front of the club with the opportunity to make history and give Marco Reus the farewell he deserves.
