Marco Reus could be involved when Borussia Dortmund travel to FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday evening. "Today he had his second training session with the team," explained head coach Lucien Favre.

The Swiss tactician did note, however, that Reus did not complete the entirety of the session. "We need to be reasonable," he said. "He'll probably be involved." A decision as to whether the midfielder makes the starting XI or the bench will be made in consultation with the team doctor Markus Braun.

However, Favre will still be without Lukas Piszczek (persistent heel problems) and Christian Pulisic. The USA international could be back in contention for a starting berth next week, though. "Pulisic is doing a lot better," reported Favre, adding: "He had his first training session today and did two-thirds with the team. He's on the right track." (br)
