Bartra set to make Dortmund comeback

Borussia Dortmund defender Marc Bartra is in line to make a return to action for the Bundesliga trip to FC Augsburg this weekend.

The Spain international was hurt following two explosions near Dortmund's team bus ahead of their Champions League quarter-final clash against Monaco last month. 

Bartra had surgery on his broken wrist after the incident, and returned to training earlier this week.

"Marc Bartra can play against Augsburg. That's the absolute positive news," Dortmund head coach Thomas Tuchel told a news conference on Friday.

"I still have to talk with the doctor to see if he can play with a cast. If he's cleared to play, he'll be in the squad."
