Tuchel: Dembele could play

Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel says Ousmane Dembele could feature against Augsburg, in addition to expressing his irritation at the suspension of Marco Reus.

The Signal Park based-outfit host Manuel Baum's side in a Bundesliga encounter on Tuesday and could be boosted by the return of their teenage sensation.

Dembele sustained some bruising in a bullish encounter against 1899 Hoffenheim on Friday.

"Ousmane joined in training today, and the way it looks today he will be able to play," Tuchel told the clubs official website.

The German mentor also spoke about Reus' first-half dismissal against Hoffenheim, lamenting the poor officiating and subsequent lack of the red-card being rescinded.

"It just adds insult to injury when we lose a player who has not committed any offense as can be proven, when we then have to play with one man down for over 50 minutes and when we then don't just miss having this player in the team in Hoffenheim, but he remains suspended."

Dortmund host Augsburg in their Bundesliga encounter on Tuesday, December 20th.
