Borussia Dortmund Marco Reus is highly unlikely to make his return from injury this month, according to Bild.

When the 30-year-old suffered a muscle injury about a month ago, Dortmund announced that he was expected to be out for four weeks.

But Reus' recovery has turned out to take longer than expected, and he remains sidelined until further notice.

"I think everyone will be fit for Saturday, except for Marco Reus. We are still uncertain when he'll return," Dortmund coach Lucien Favre told reporters at the pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga game against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

According to Bild, Dortmund don't expect Reus to be able to make his return until after the international break (23 to 31 March) at the earliest.

That would mean that the 30-year-old will not only miss Dortmund's important Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, but the Revierderby against Schalke on 14 March as well.

He is even considered a doubt for Dortmund's top-of-the-table clash against Bayern München on 4 April.
