(Sporting Alert) — Didier Deschamps will be hoping his Marseille side can quickly put together a winning run with victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League tonight after the poor start to the domestic campaign this season.
With victory in the opening match, Marseille face a Dortmund side which opened the Champions League with a 1-1 draw with Barclays Premier League Arsenal on match day one.
And despite the poor run at the domestic level, Deschamps says his team is still confident.
“Our spirits are generally high,” he told the La Depeche newspaper.
“We put a lot of heart and enthusiasm into the match and they were two points lost in view of the situation.
“I am sorry for my players because we punished ourselves at the worst possible time.
“We were in control of 99% of the match, but now we have to lift ourselves up for the match in the Champions League.”
