Borussia Dortmunds Marco Reus out of Tottenham Champions League tieFebruary 12,2019 bySkysports.com
Marco Reus will miss the game with a thigh injury
Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus will miss the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie against Tottenham on Wednesday due to a thigh injury.
England winger Jadon Sancho, 18, who starred in Reus` absence against Hoffenheim, scoring in a 3-3 draw, will be expected to fill in again on his return to London.
Reus has been Dortmund`s most prolific player this season, scoring 13 goals and setting up nine more in 19 Bundesliga games, but he injured a thigh muscle last Tuesday in a German Cup loss to Werder Bremen.
Sancho scored against Hoffenheim in Reus` absence
Dortmund official Sebastian Kehl said: "We would of course have liked to have him in London, because his presence is a bit intimidating for the opponent. But we`ll compensate for his absence."
It`s unclear if Reus will return in time for the next league game at Nuremberg in a week`s time, or the second leg against Tottenham in Dortmund, which will be played on March 5.
