Marco Reus' decision to commit to Borussia Dortmund was a catalyst to reviving the Bundesliga strugglers' form ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash at Juventus, according to defender Neven Subotic.Serie A leaders Juventus are clear favorites for the last 16, first-leg clash, but Borussia are buoyed by three straight league wins since Germany star Reus signed a contract extension on Feb. 10 to keep him in Dortmund until 2019 .News of Reus' signature ended weeks of speculation that another top player was poised to quit Dortmund and he has scored in each of Borussia's last three league wins to lift them to midtable.After stars Mario Goetze and Robert Lewandowski quit Dortmund for rivals Bayern Munich in recent years, Borussia's ability to hold onto a prize asset has boosted the squad, Subotic says.After weeks of struggling for either league points or goals, Dortmund's attack has finally clicked with Reus, ex-Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa and Aubameyang in impressive form.
