Elie Baup: Not giving up on Champions League progression

The Ligue 1 side left themselves a mountain to climb to make it out of Group F, arguably the toughest in the competition, as they lost 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Napoli beat last season's runners-up Borussia Dortmund in the other game in the group.

Baup said on the OM website: "It is obvious that the points are expensive.

"Dortmund lost in Naples and we're going to Germany for the next game. The situation is not easy, but as long as we have the remaining five games he must believe.

"There were positives (against Arsenal) in terms of the quality of play, but we have to avoid mistakes. That's the highest level, that is the Champions League."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
