Elie Baup: 'Borussia Dortmund defeat harsh on Marseille'

Elie Baup says that Marseille losing 3-0 to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League was "harsh" on his side.

Marseille manager Elie Baup believes that his side did not deserve to lose by as much as they did against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Les Phoceens were beaten 3-0 at the Westfalenstadion in Group F of the Champions League thanks to a Robert Lewandowski brace and a Marco Reus free kick.

While he admires the talent of the Bundesliga outfit, who finished as runners-up in the tournament last term, Baup feels that the result was harsh on Marseille.

"We knew how good our opponents were – they beat Real Madrid 4-0 in May on the same pitch," Baup said in a press conference. "We wanted to play our game, but 3-0 is still harsh.

"We knew it would be difficult from the moment the draw was made. Arsenal always advance, Borussia Dortmund were runners-up last year and Napoli have built a good team. This is an incredible draw – it is the most difficult section. We aim to be brave in taking our chances and, above all, to try to improve.

"We should learn from such games for the league, but also to come back stronger in Europe. On the plus side, our first half was good as we had more possession than Dortmund. Their second goal, from a free-kick, was a bit weird. All those things make the difference."

Marseille face Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 on Sunday.
