Dortmund: Borussia Dortmund received a big boost just ahead of the kick-off of their Champions League season at home against Arsenal with Shinji Kagawa's return to Germany easing the injury loss of Marco Reus.

The 2013 Champions League runners-up Dortmund had bad news when Reus went down with a sprained ankle and partially torn ankle ligament on international duty last week, sidelining the German star for four weeks.
