Troubled Dortmund welcome back Germany's Reus

20 November 2014, 22:55

Berlin - Germany winger Marco Reus has recovered from an ankle injury and is set to play for Bundesliga strugglers Borussia Dortmund at Paderborn on Saturday, according to his coach Jurgen Klopp.

Reus missed Germany's Euro 2016 qualifier win over Gibraltar last Friday and Tuesday's friendly win over Spain, but should return at Paderborn with Dortmund just above the relegation places after the worst league start in the club's history.

"Marco is free of pain and there's nothing to stop him playing on Saturday," said Dortmund boss Klopp.

Reus strained an ankle ligament in Dortmund's 1-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach a fortnight ago which broke his side's five-match losing streak and lifted them out of the bottom three.

Gabon winger Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang faces a race to be fully fit in time to face mid-table Paderborn after suffering from an upset stomach last week which restricted his training.

In Paderborn, Klopp will definitely be without Germany centre-back Mats Hummels, who has a sprained ankle. The defender should return for Wednesday's Champions League clash at Arsenal however, with Dortmund top of their group after four straight wins.

"It's not healing as fast as we'd hoped," said Klopp, who will also be without midfielders Nuri Sahin, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Oliver Kirch in Paderborn, while defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos is suspended.

The challenge facing Klopp and Dortmund in Paderborn is to prove their win over Gladbach, achieved only by Christoph Kramer's long-range own goal, was not a fluke.

"We recognise the difficulty of the task, but we are also conscious of our chances," added Klopp.
