Dortmund striker Aubameyang back in squad

DORTMUND, Germany (AP) " Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in the squad after being suspended for a Champions League match because of an authorized private trip abroad.

Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel said he did not believe the suspension would affect Aubameyang's performance "because he knows that the matter was closed with the final whistle" in the match against Sporting.

Aubameyang sat out Wednesday's match after getting suspended by Tuchel. The Gabon striker flew to Milan with friends on a private jet and reported late for practice on Tuesday.

Dortmund visits last-place Hamburg on Saturday. Tuchel had said before that the suspension would be only for one match.
