Borussia Dortmund – Napoli

A draw at Borussia Dortmund will be enough to put SSC Napoli in the knockout rounds while the German team need the three points to revitalise their own prospects. A draw at Borussia Dortmund would be enough for SSC Napoli to qualify for the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds for the second time in three seasons although defeat would mean the home team join them on nine points in Group F.

On matchday one, the first competitive fixture between the sides, Gonzalo Higuaín ‘s debut goal (29) for Napoli gave the hosts the lead against the 2013 runners-up who then lost Roman Weidenfeller to a red card. An unstoppable free-kick from Lorenzo Insigne (67) made it 2-0 with a Camilo Zúñiga own goal (87) ensuring a tense finale.

Dortmund followed that by beating Olympique de Marseille and winning at Arsenal FC, only for a 1-0 home defeat against the English club to leave their prospects in the balance.

Napoli, in only their second UEFA Champions League campaign, lost at Arsenal on matchday two but two wins against Marseille took them on to nine points, level with Arsenal and three ahead of third-placed Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund starting 11: 1 Weidenfeller – 2 Friedrich – 25 Papastathopoulos – 37 E Durm – 19 Grosskreutz – 10 Mkhitaryan – 6 Bender S – 16 Blaszczykowski – 18 Nuri Şahin – 11 Reus – 9 Lewandowski
