  • Marco Reus to start against Frankfurt

It's the comeback we are all waiting for, Marco Reus will play on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt. This was confirmed by Thomas Tuchel in the pre-game press conference on Thursday. Reus played his last game in the 6:2 victory against Bayer Leverkusen in early March and had to be subbed of because of a rupture of a muscle fiber. The team obviously missed him in recent weeks, hopefully his comeback will give the team a much needed boost ahead of the second leg against Monaco and the DFB Cup semifinal against Bayern Munich.

  • Bartra will miss 4 weeks

Thomas Tuchel also confirmed that Marc Bartra will miss 4 weeks because of a broken hand. The Spaniard had surgery on Tuesday night after he suffered the injury during the attacks on the BVB-bus. The 26-year-old is apparently in good spirits with Tuchel saying that Bartra "would love to play on Saturday".
