Henrikh Mkhitaryan is pleased that Borussia Dortmund got the win that they needed and ended up topping Group F.

Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan was glad that the German side managed the win that they needed to qualify for the second round of the Champions League.

Mkhitaryan said that although they could have won by more against Marseille, the players never gave up and deserved to finish top of Group F.

"We're very proud," he told UEFA.com. "We played a great game and, although we didn't score all our chances, we managed to score a second goal.

"That's what matters because during the game we heard that Napoli were winning 1-0, so we gave all we had on the pitch to get over the line. We could have ended up first or third in the group, but we did our job well and took first place.

"It was important to finish top because Dortmund were finalists in this competition last year. This year it was a tough group; it was a tough group last year as well, but maybe there were people who doubted that we could finish top or even second this time. Perhaps we pulled off the impossible."

The winning goal came three minutes from time from Kevin Grosskreutz.
