With Borussia Dortmund losing to Napoli and Marseille to Arsenal on the opening Champions League matchday, there's pressure on both sides to bounce back on Tuesday. The two teams go face-to-face in Dortmund, with hosts and last year's finalists clear favourites heading in.
Despite having to contend with a fairly lengthy injury list, Dortmund have only dropped a couple of points in the Bundesliga so far this season. They'll be without Sebastian Kehl, İlkay Gündoğan, Marcel Schmelzer, Łukasz Piszczek and goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller on Tuesday evening -- all regular faces -- though their impressive league form suggests they have the squad depth to cope.
Marseille have won their last couple of Ligue 1 matches and impressed in their narrow 2-1 defeat to Arsenal -- as well as winning both home and away when these sides clashed in the group stages a couple of seasons ago -- though on paper don't seem to have quite enough quality to match their German hosts. However, they do have a rather shorter list of absentees, missing only Jérémy Morel and André-Pierre Gignac through injury.
