Half-Time Report: Borussia Dortmund level against 10-man Marseille

Marseille are holding Borussia Dortmund at half time in tonight's Champions League clash at Stade Velodrome.

Marseille and Borussia Dortmund are level after 45 minutes of their final Champions League group-stage match at Stade Velodrome.

The German side need a win to guarantee their place in the last 16, although they are going through as it stands by virtue of Napoli drawing with Arsenal.

It took just four minutes for Robert Lewandowski to open the scoring, showing strength to hold off Lucas Mendes after latching onto Erik Durm's ball over the top and clipping over Steve Mandanda.

However, the visitors drew level when Souleymane Diawara nodded in after Roman Weidenfeller failed to deal with a free kick and Saber Khelifa's initial effort had come off the bar.

Dimitri Payet picked up two quick bookings - the first for a foul on Jakub Blaszczykowski and the second for a dive - to see him down the tunnel in the 34th minute.
