The attacker is confident that his side can overcome a 2-1 first-leg deficit in the second leg, but admitted that the loss could have been even worse Borussia Dortmund attacker Marco Reus says he is not at all worried about the prospect of a Champions League exit at the hands of Juventus despite losing the first leg 2-1. The Germany international scored to put his side back on level terms after Carlos Tevez broke the deadlock, only for Alvaro Morata to give the Bianconeri a narrow first-leg lead. Reus feels that his side could have got more from the Turin clash but is still confident they will progress. "Maybe we could have got something more out of this," he told Sky. "After it was 1-1 we were better in this match and the 2-1 was stupid. In the second half, both teams wanted to continue their way. "Now we have to settle this in the second leg. We have to be more determined. I am not worried at all. Everything is possible in the second leg." Reus' goal came about after an error from Giorgio Chiellini and the attacker says he and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were both planning to put Juventus' defenders under pressure from the start. "You could see it. Auba and I always try to run at defenders, while Ciro Immobile attacked Pirlo, then Chiellini slipped. These situations happen only once or twice. "Unfortunately that goal did not give us as much safety as I would have thought. In the second half we could have conceded a third." Juventus 2-1 Borussia Dortmund
