Champions League : Napoli, Borussia Dortmund Could Still Qualify Over First Placed Arsenal In Group Of Death


    Arsenal have a relatively easy task against Marseille in the Champions League tonight, given the fact that the French have lost of seven matches in all their competitions, including a 0-3 loss to Borussia Dortmund. They’re effectively eliminated from the competition, but it has given them the chance to work on their domestic performances.

    Marseille recently chalked up wins in the Ligue 1 to move up to the fourth place on the standings. There is still a small glimmer of hope to do well against Arsenal (at the very least) and they should probably keep their fingers crossed about a possible draw, even if the Gunners are on song at the moment.

    Arsenal’s resident Smileyface, Santi Cazorla declared : “There is nothing at stake for Marseille because they have zero points but they are going to make things difficult for us. It may be tough and if we’re not careful we might slip up and then we might not be able to get through to the next round.

    Granted, they are in Group F – one of the toughest Champions League groups we’ve seen so far – with Napoli and Borussia Dortmund both wrangling for the Round-of-16 Ticket.


    Of course Napoli are equal with Arsenal (9 points) and only lie in second place because Arsenal conceded less goals (3 compared to Napoli’s 6) in their four matches played.

    This is probably the most competitive group, as qualification is still possible for all three sides with two matches to go.
