Reus scored his side's only goal as Dortmund narrowly lost 2-1 Tuesday to Juventus in the Champions League second round.

Reus extended his goal-streak to four games with a crucial away goal in Turin. The midfielder capitalized on Juventus' Giorgio Chiellini's error at the back to equalize but could not help his team to the right result on the night.

Reus scored for the third game in a row as Dortmund beat Stuttgart 3-2 Friday.

Both Reus and team-mate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have now scored in the last three Dortmund games and all have ended in victory. Reus didn't play to the best of his abilities against Stuttgart but got on the scoresheet late-on nonetheless, taking advantage of Stuttgart's Timo Baumgartl's terrible backpass. The goal was the midfielder's only shot of the game, which he converted by rounding the goalkeeper and passing into an unguarded net.

Reus celebrated signing a new contract with a goal and an assist Friday in Dortmund's 4-2 win over Mainz.

Reus showed exactly why Dortmund have been so keen to hang on to him with an all-round excellent performance. He gave his team the lead on 55 minutes when he rounded Mainz goalkeeper Stefanos Kapino and added an assist after 71 minutes with a superb ball with the outside of his foot to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Reus took five shots in total and could have scored as early as the third minute but was denied by the post. The midfielder is now on a two-game goal streak and could easily continue that run next time out against Stuttgart.

Reus signed a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, possibly keeping him with the club until 2019.

Reus has been widely courted by numerous big-time clubs this year and it's very surprising that he signed a new deal with this year's Bundesliga bottom-dwellers. That being said, it's likely the deal simply removed a release clause in his contract, which could allow Dortmund to get an even bigger transfer fee for his services.

Reus is expected to commit to Borussia Dortmund for the future despite interest from Arsenal and Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mail.

Both Arsenal and Madrid were rumored to be ready to trigger the release clause embedded in the midfielder's contract, which expires in 2017. Instead, Reus appears ready to remain in Germany for the future.

Reus scored Dortmund's first goal in a comfortable 3-0 win Saturday against Freiburg.

Reus had the easiest of finishes when he passed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's assist into an empty net on 9 minutes. It was an eventful game for the German international who had five shots in total, including a close effort that was palmed away in the second half. Reus played 80 minutes before being replaced by Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Reus lacked his usual creative spark and was substituted on 72 minutes as Dortmund lost 1-0 Wednesday to Augsburg.

It's not very often that Reus is substituted off the field when fully fit. However against Augsburg it was fully justified, the midfielder lacked influence and looked disinterested for the most part. He shot wide in the first half but did little to trouble visiting goalkeeper Alex Manniger throughout the match.
