​Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus looks set to miss four weeks of action after he suffered a muscle injury during his side's DFB-Pokal defeat to Werder Bremen on Tuesday. 


As a result, he is unlikely to feature during the Bundesliga side's upcoming Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

BVN went into the break 2-0 down against Bremen before Erling Haaland scored again to make it 2-1. However, Milot Rashica extended the home side's lead once more and although Giovanni Reyna struck with 12 minutes remaining to set up a tense end to the game, Dortmund were unable to find an equaliser.


Despite his best efforts to continue, Reus was substituted in the 89th minute of the game and was seen limping off. ​Borussia Dortmund have now taken to their ​official website to confirm that their star player will be out of action for up to four weeks.


This will come as a major blow for both the club and Reus, who has struggled with injuries his whole career.


The 30-year-old will miss the weekend game with Bayer Leverkusen, and will also be watching on when Dortmund take on Eintracht Frankfurt on February 14. Should his recovery take as long as four weeks, he will also be unable to play any part in Dortmund's Champions League last 16 with Paris Saint-Germain in the ​Champions League on February 18.

Die Schwarzgelben will be desperate to see their captain return before their crunch clash with Borussia Mönchengladbach on March 7, before a return to trip to PSG.


Reus has been in good form for Dortmund this season, making 26 appearances. He's netted 12 times, as well as laying on seven assists, leading a devastating frontline that also features Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland, who recently joined from RB Salzburg.


Once again, it will be a cruel blow for the club, but particularly for ​Reus, who has been hugely impressive this season. The German has featured in 26 games in all competitions and in this time, he has found the net 12 times, while he has also provided seven assists.
