Aubameyang to face Tottenham as Dortmund lift suspension



Borussia Dortmund have lifted the suspension on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with their star striker set to face Tottenham Hotspur in Tuesday’ s Champions League clash.

Dortmund ’ s director of sport Michael Zorc confirmed Aubameyang is back in the squad after his suspension for being late for training and an unauthorised video shoot at the club’ s training ground .

The Gabon international was left out of Friday ’ s 2 -1 defeat at Stuttgart which saw the early season pacesetters drop to fifth in the Bundesliga table .

Aubameyang , the Bundesliga’ s top scorer last season, is in a goal drought.

He has not added to his tally of 15 goals so far this season in his last five games, dating back to October 14 .

Third-placed Dortmund must beat Group H leaders Spurs and hope Real Madrid fail to win at APOEL, also on Tuesday, to keep alive their thin hopes of reaching the last 16 .

Spurs are already assured of a place in the knock-out stages , but a win will see them finish as group winners.
