Gabon winger Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is expected to be fit for Tuesday's key Ruhr Valley derby when Borussia Dortmund host rivals Schalke in the German Bundesliga's top three showdown.

Aubameyang missed second-placed Dortmund's 3-0 win at Hannover on Saturday with a leg injury as Germany's Kevin Grosskreutz took his place on the left wing.

But the 24-year-old Gabon star is expected to face third-placed Schalke who are just one point behind Dortmund after Saturday's 3-1 win at home to bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig.

"Auba's not injured, there was a little problem with his leg for this game, but there's no problem for the derby," Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp said in Hannover.

There was more good news for Klopp as Germany winger Marco Reus scored their third goal on his return after missing the last few weeks with injury. Dortmund have drawn Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League despite losing 2-1 at home to Zenit St. Petersburg on Wednesday as they won 4-3 on aggregate.
