Jurgen Klopp admits that it was looking as though his side would not find the winning goal against Marseille.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has admitted that for a while he did not think his side would be able to find the winner in their late 2-1 victory over Marseille in the Champions League.

Klopp said that even though his side did exactly what he wanted from them before the game, the number of chances they missed made it touch and go whether they would get through.

"Basically we did everything right today and in the end we still got so many things wrong," he told "It was incredible how many chances we created against unbelievably compact opponents who also defended with passion.

"It was even more incredible how we managed to miss those opportunities. We twice had a situation where someone failed to kick the ball when it was already on the goal line and Robert Lewandowski also managed miss an open goal. In the end we required a scrambled shot by Kevin Grosskreutz - but it's a great feeling."

Dortmund topped Group F from Arsenal, who finished second.
