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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
