Marco Reus remains out for Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League clash against FC Copenhagen

Borussia Dortmund attacking-midfielder Marco Reus did not travel with his team to Denmark for their Champions League clash in Group G against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday at Parken.

The 33-year-old initially injured his ankle on 17 September against Schalke 04, which kept him out of action for a few weeks.

The German international then returned to action for Dortmund against Union Berlin on 16 October and got injured again which has seen him side-lined ever since.

Dortmund will also be without Raphael Guerreiro, Marius Wolf and Tom Rothe for the FC Copenhagen encounter.

This match is a must-win game for Dortmund as they lie second in the Group G standings and if Sevilla beat Manchester City they have an outside chance, depending on the score line, to qualify for the next stage ahead of the Germans.

Reus' injury problems are a big concern as the veteran's place in Germany's World Cup squad is by no means guaranteed.

The Fifa World Cup runs from 20 November until 12 December with Germany facing Japan in Group E on 23 November at Khalifa International Stadium.
