Erling Haaland and Marco Reus return to full Borussia Dortmund training

Borussia Dortmund received a major boost on Tuesday morning as attacking duo Erling Haaland and Marco Reus returned to full training following injury.

Haaland has not featured for Lucien Favre's side since being substituted off in the 72nd minute of BVB's 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Matchday 28 with a knee complaint.

Reus, meanwhile, has missed 12 competitive games due to  a thigh muscle injury sustained in the DFB Cup Round of 16 defeat away to Werder Bremen on 4 February.

However, both players are now back on the practice pitches and were able to complete the full session with the rest of the first team unscathed.

A statement on the Dortmund website said that Reus will gradually take part in more training sessions as he works his way back to full fitness. The 31-year-old adjusted his rehabilitation programme during the coronavirus-enforced hiatus in order to "completely recover from the injury and get my body into even better condition".

"It's a very positive signal," sporting director Michael Zorc told Kicker of the Dortmund captain's return. While this weekend's Matchday 31 game at Fortuna Düsseldorf comes too soon for the Germany international, Haaland is expected to be part of the squad. "He's training towards making that match," Zorc said.
