Tottenham boost as BVB sweat on Reus fitness

Tottenham have received a boost ahead of their Champions League last-16 first leg clash at Wembley.

Dortmund star Marco Reus suffered a thigh injury in last night's German Cup loss to Werder Bremen and is racing to be fit for next week's meeting with Spurs.

When asked whether Reus would be ready for Saturday's league meeting against Hoffenheim, Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said: "We don't know yet. I can't answer that definitely. We will have to wait some days and examine him again.

"[Wednesday] will be too early so we will have to wait a day longer, but we hope."
