Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Marseille's hopes hang by a thread. No points from three games means they are not mathematically out, but goals from José Callejón and Duván Zapata mean hopes of progressing are as slim as it gets. A late rally gave some hope, but it is Rafael Benítez's men who leave happy after impressing throughout.
  • 90+3
    Inler (Napoli) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on A. Ayew (Marseille).
  • 90+1
    Cheyrou (Marseille) misses the target.
    Napoli refusing to panic but Marseille work a throw in on the right to the midfielder, who tries an effort from 30 metres but it is well over the bar.

    J. Ayew (Marseille) is shown a yellow card.

  • Substitution
    83
    Insigne (in) - Hamšík (out) (Napoli)

  • 81
    Mesto (Napoli) is penalised for a foul on Thauvin (Marseille).

  • 65
    Mandanda (Marseille) makes a save.

  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Chris Burke (UEFAcomChrisB), Stade Vélodrome: Napoli go in a goal up at the break and it is a lead they deserve, having dominated in terms of both possession and chances.

  • 34

  • 15
    N'Koulou (Marseille) makes a save.
