Tottenham given Champions League boost with Reus set to miss Dortmund clash through injury
TOTTENHAM have been handed a major boost ahead of their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund with Marco Reus set to miss the game.
Reus, 29, suffered a thigh injury against Werder Bremen earlier this week, with boss Lucien Favre fearing the worst.
The German star missed yesterday’s 3-3 thriller against Hoffenheim, as Dortmund chief Michael Zorc admitted he is “not expecting miracles”.
When asked about his Spurs availability, Favre revealed: “I think we will decide that nearer the time.
“But I am not expecting a miracle cure by Wednesday.”
The news is a huge boost for Tottenham, with Reus enjoying one of the best seasons of his career so far.
