The 27-year-old who has scored six times and contributed seven assists for Borussia Dortmund despite playing in only 15 matches during an injury-interrupted campaign has picked up a fresh hamstring injury which is expected to rule the German midfielder out for a month.

Marco Reus suffered the injury in his right thigh in the first half of Dortmund’s 6-2 rout of Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Saturday and Dortmund says the attacking midfielder will be out for around four weeks, ruling him out of the side’s Champions League round-of-16 second leg against Benfica on Wednesday, the German Cup match against Sportfreunde Lotte, as well as league games against Hertha Berlin and Ingolstadt.

Reus is expected to be back in action for Dortmund at the start of April.
