Tottenham Hotspur might have to face Marco Reus next week.
Let’s face it: Borussia Dortmund need a miracle to knock Tottenham Hotspur out of the Champions League when both sides resume their last-16 tie on March 5.
Mauricio Pochettino’s troops thumped the German giants 3-0 at Wembley earlier this month to put one foot in the quarter-final phase of the competition.
Barring a miracle, Spurs will be advancing, but it looks like Dortmund have a bit of a lifeline for the second leg next Tuesday.
The Bundesliga leaders hinted on Twitter that Marco Reus, who missed the first leg through injury, is fit again in what could be a major boost for Lucien Favre’s side.

The 29-year-old has 17 goals in all competitions this season, illustrating that the fact that he’s a huge player for them.
Tottenham fans will rightly argue that they will have Harry Kane available too, which might cancel out Reus’s return.
Kane scored in the 2-1 defeat at Burnley this past weekend on his long-awaited return to the first XI following a six-week absence.
