Borussia Dortmund lost to Arsenal in the last UEFA Champions League match they played. They also bring a three game losing streak into this match and desperately need a win against a strong Napoli squad to stay alive in this contest and control their own destiny.
“We cannot influence public opinion about our games,” Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp said. “We have lost three in a row, but some players had internationals in between and won there, so that should give them a boost. We have the feeling we’ve dropped some points along the way, points we would have liked to have taken, but this will help Napoli only if we play badly tomorrow. We are highly focused and cannot be knocked off course so easily.
“Napoli lost against Parma [on Saturday] but I don’t think anyone there is speaking of a crisis. Maybe two ‘crisis-stricken’ clubs will meet now – in the end hopefully nobody will notice that on the pitch.
“Some people have said this is the strongest of all the groups. Some have said it is the most exciting one. It will depend on us to keep things exciting. Nobody can be sure of themselves. What is a fact is that if we don’t win twice, starting from tomorrow, things will be difficult for us.”
