Injury-cursed Reus to miss Dortmund’s Benfica clash


Berlin (AFP) – Germany winger Marco Reus will miss Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League, last 16, second-leg clash at home to Benfica on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, coach Thomas Tuchel said Saturday.

Reus limped off on 44 minutes of Dortmund’s 6-2 rout of Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga with a suspected tear in his left hamstring.

“It’s sad news, he (Reus) has been playing very consistently for weeks and at a high level,” said Tuchel.”It’s an enormous loss which tarnishes the win.”

Dortmund are looking to overturn a 1-0 defeat from the first leg at Benfica.

The 27-year-old Reus missed Germany’s 2014 World Cup campaign after tearing ankle ligaments in a warm-up match before Brazil and then missed out on a place in the squad for Euro 2016 with a pelvic injury.
