Football: Dortmund eager to see off Marseille
DORTMUND, Germany (AFP) - Borussia Dortmund host Olympique Marseille on Tuesday with both sides badly needing a win after opening defeats to keep alive their hopes of reaching the Champions League's knock-out phase.
Having lost to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich in last season's final, Dortmund got off to a bad start a fortnight ago, losing 2-1 at Napoli in their Group F opener as Marseille went down 2-1 at Arsenal.
It was a bad night in Naples for Borussia as centre-back Mats Hummels limped off with a leg injury, goalkeeper Ronen Weidenfeller was sent off and coach Jurgen Klopp was sent to the stands for berating the referee.
Weidenfeller is suspended for Tuesday's match at Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park, while Klopp will be in the stands having been given a one-match ban from the bench by European football's governing body Uefa.
