Borussia Dortmund playmaker Marco Reus suffered an injury on Tuesday which could make him a doubt for next week’s Champions League clash with Tottenham.
Reus was substituted at half-time during Dortmund’s DFB Cup defeat to Werder Bremen at Westfalenstadion.
Marco Reus taken off with an injury at half-time of Dortmund’s Cup game against Bremen. Unclear how serious it is but obviously a worry with only a week to go to the CL game against #spurs. Had just scored a cracker as well. #bvb #thfc

The German scored in first half stoppage time but was taken off at the break with an injury, the seriousness of which is unclear at present.
Dortmund went on to lose on penalties after four goals in extra-time saw the game end 3-3.
The Bundesliga leaders now face an anxious wait to discover the extent of Reus’ injury ahead of a huge European meeting with Spurs.
The first leg of the round of 16 tie takes place at Wembley next Wednesday, and some reports have suggested Harry Kane could make an early return to play against Dortmund.
It would be a big boost for Spurs if their best player returned and one of Dortmund’s key men missed the match through injury.
Again, it’s worth noting the likelihood of those scenarios is currently up in the air. Keep an eye out for updates.
