Borussia Moenchengladbach will be without star midfielder Marco Reus for Saturday's key German league clash at home to leaders Dortmund.

Both teams are on 29 points, with defending champions Dortmund top by virtue of goal difference, and just a point ahead of Bayern Munich, in third, who host fourth-placed Werder Bremen in a weekend of bumper German football.

The 22-year-old Reus, who has hit 10 league goals this season to help 'Gladbach up to second in the Bundesliga, broke the little toe in his left foot in last weekend's 3-0 hammering of Cologne and sits out the visit of Dortmund.

'Gladbach coach Lucien Favre is already without striker Igor de Camargo who has a back injury.
