Marseille's Morel out of Dortmund match

Olympique de Marseille full-back Jérémy Morel will sit out the UEFA Champions League Group F fixture at Borussia Dortmund next month after succumbing to a knee injury.

Defender Jérémy Morel has been sidelined for up to three weeks and will miss Olympique de Marseille's UEFA Champions League Group F match at Borussia Dortmund.

The 29-year-old left-back sprained his right knee during Marseille's Ligue 1 goalless draw at SC Bastia on Saturday – a result that extended their winless sequence to four games in all competitions. Morel, who made the move from FC Lorient in 2011, was part of the OM side that suffered a 2-1 reverse at home to Arsenal FC on matchday one.

After travelling to Dortmund on Tuesday 1 October, Élie Baup's charges tackle SSC Napoli three weeks later at the Stade Vélodrome.
