Valon Behrami has underlined that the victory Napoli netted at Marseille on Tuesday could turn out to be crucial.
The Azzurri collected a 2-1 win in France to join Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal at the top of the table, as all three teams now have six points.
“These two games against Marseille will be decisive for us before we head to Dortmund,” the Swiss international told Mediaset.
“We created a lot of chances from the start,” added the former Fiorentina player. “We did well to take advantage of the counter attack and close the game in the second half.
“Arsenal and Dortmund are the favourites to qualify from our section and we naturally would have preferred a draw between them, but we are doing well.”
Robert Lewandowksi netted a late winner in the German 2-1 win at the Emirates last night.
