Arsenal FC remain top of Group F after a 2-0 victory against Olympique de Marseille, but despite picking up their 12th point in the section they are still not through to the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
With Borussia Dortmund beating SSC Napoli in the other match, Arsenal must avoid a three-goal defeat on 11 December in Naples to be sure of advancing. They will at least travel with confidence after a strike in each half from Jack Wilshere ensured victory against a Marseille side still searching for their first point and confirmed bottom of the group.
The only regret we have tonight is that we could have scored more goals. We are confident we can take another point, or maybe all three, in Naples.
Arsène Wenger, Arsenal manager
If I told you we were the same level as Arsenal, I would be lying. I think we should be on par with such an opponent but we were far from this tonight.
Steve Mandanda, Marseille goalkeeper
