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."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
