Robert Lewandowski could return for Borussia Dortmund this weekend, but coach Jurgen Klopp does not expect to have Marco Reus available.

Lewandowski has recovered well from the knee injury that saw him miss the 1-0 victory over Freiburg last Sunday and returned to training on Thursday.

The Poland international striker, who will join Bayern Munich next season, has scored 15 Bundesliga goals in 2013-14 and will strengthen Dortmund’s attacking options for Saturday’s visit of Borussia Monchengladbach, but Reus is unlikely to feature due to a thigh problem.

“Robert Lewandowski has recovered from his injury,” Klopp confirmed. “He could be available against Gladbach.

“If nothing extraordinary happens overnight, then Marcos Reus will not be able to be there.

“Jonas Hofmann could start, he’s a very important member of the squad.”

Dortmund lost 2-0 against Monchengladbach earlier in the season.

“We were incredibly unlucky when we last met them,” added Klopp. “Gladbach have (been) much-improved under Lucien Favre.

“Gladbach are a quality side. (Juan) Arango, (Max) Kruse and Raffael are exceptional players.”
