Hummels and Reus could make DFB Pokal clash

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has suggested that Mats Hummels and Marco Reus might recover in time to face 1860 Munich for their DFB Pokal clash on Tuesday.

Hummels suffered a back injury during his side's 2-1 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League last week, while Reus picked up a knock in the 1-1 draw at Nurnberg on Saturday and was withdrawn at halftime; however, Klopp says that Hummels has been training well, although he is slightly less optimistic on the former Borussia Monchengladbach forward's progress.

"Mats made a good impression in training," Klopp said at a press conference. "Marco, meanwhile, is getting better. However, he's still far from being good."

Meanwhile, Klopp called for his men to focus on what he expects to be a difficult encounter at the Allianz Arena.

"I'm looking forward to the match. It's a difficult, yet appealing tie," Klopp said. "We are warned. I will analyze the opponent, then we will make our conclusions."
