Borussia Dortmund's match at home to Napoli on Tuesday night is almost definitely the pick of the Champions League matchday. The Italians are currently sitting second in Group F, level on points with leaders Arsenal. Dortmund, on the other hand, are a mere three points behind.

That means that Napoli can secure their place in the knockout stages with a victory, though Dortmund would draw level on points with the partenopei if they win. You couldn't have created a more exciting scenario. Or terrifying, depending on whether you're emotionally involved.
Unfortunately both sides are without big names through injury. Dortmund's defensive crisis sees three quarters of their back line wiped out, while İlkay Gündoğan is still battling a back problem. For Napoli, the big news is the absence of playmaker Marek Hamšík, who limped out of their 1-0 defeat to Parma on Saturday with a foot problem.
