Borussia Dortmund has been handed a boost for the Bundesliga run-in after Christian Pulisic, Paco Alcacer and Raphael Guerreiro all returned to training.

The trio missed last weekend's 5-0 thumping at the hands of Bayern Munich, a result that damaged Dortmund’s hopes of dethroning their opponents as Bundesliga champion.


Pulisic has not played since sustaining a thigh injury on international duty with the United States at the end of March, while arm and hamstring issues respectively ruled Alcacer and Guerreiro out of the heavy defeat at the Allianz Arena.

Lucien Favre's side is one point behind leader Bayern in the table with six games remaining. Dortmund is next in action on Saturday, as it hosts Mainz.
