Aguero and Reus - Head To Head for PUMA in Dortmund 1/2/15

This epic Dragon clash took place on the square pitch that was first introduced by Radamel Falcao and Sergio Aguero ahead of the Manchester Derby earlier this month. The pitch has 4 goals covered by sliding doors operated by the fans to keep the players on their toes. As one goal opens another one shuts in a new style of football that tests the players’ every ability.

Sergio Aguero said: “As I already had the chance to test the square pitch a few weeks ago against Falcao, I thought I might have a small advantage over Reus knowing the pitch, the turf and the switching goals. But I have to admit, that guy is really talented, so my lead lasted unfortunately only a few seconds. I love this pitch and it’s really fun, especially when playing against some new players who you don’t get to meet every day in training.”

Marco Reus said: “I am sure you can see it in the film, but I can re-assure you that Aguero really gave me a hard time. He is so quick and so ambitious and it was definitely hard to keep up with him. The switching goals were challenging in the beginning, but once it clicked, it is a really cool concept, because you can never really anticipate what happens next. This was definitely one of the best things I have done with PUMA so far.”
