Kevin Grosskreutz scored an 87th-minute winner to send last year's beaten finalists,[url=http://www.oksko.com/air-max-33]Billige Nike Air Max[/url], Borussia Dortmund into the last 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Bundesliga side finished top of Group F after beating 10-man Marseille 2-1 in the Stade Velodrome.
Robert Lewandowski got Dortmund off to the perfect start with a goal in the fourth minute but German joy didn't last long as Marseille defender Souleymane Diawara equalized in 14th minute.
Despite having a numerical advantage for two thirds of the game -- Marseille's Dimitri Payet was sent off in the 34th minute -- Dortmund couldn't find a winner until Grosskreutz drove home a low winner with three minutes remaining,[url=http://www.oksko.com/nike-free-38]Nike Free[/url].
"It was a great feeling to get the winning goal and put us through as group winners,[url=http://www.oksko.com/]Nike Sko[/url]," Grosskreutz said.
"It was amazing to celebrate the goals with the fans,[url=http://www.oksko.com/]Nike Norge[/url], we deserved to go through," the 25-year-old added.
"We had lots of chances, but stayed patient and got our reward. I can't wait to get in the dressing room and soak up the atmosphere, there might be a few beers drunk as well."
Dortmund's better head-to-head record against Arsenal ensured they finished first in the group while the Gunners clinched second place despite losing 2-0 away to Napoli.
Gonzalo Higuain's 73rd-minute goal gave Rafa Benitez's side hope -- the big Argentine turning neatly on the edge of the area before unleashing a low left-foot shot into the bottom corner of Wojciech Szczesny's goal,[url=http://www.oksko.com/nike-free-38]Billige Nike Free[/url].
Two minutes later,[url=http://www.oksko.com/nike-free-38]Nike Free Run[/url], Arsenal were down to ten men when Mikel Arteta received a second yellow card. Worse was to come as Jose Callejon doubled the home side's lead in injury time.
With news filtering through of Dortmund's late goal, Napoli's chances of progressing now rested solely on scoring an unanswered third, but Callejon's deft touch over an advancing Szczesny proved to be the last kick of the match.
Napoli also finished the group stage with 12 points, but an inferior goal difference sees them drop down into the Europa League.
At Stamford Bridge, Demba Ba's 10th minute goal proved the difference between Chelsea and Romania's Steaua Bucharest. The 1-0 win ensures the West Londoner's retained top billing in Group E. Jose Mourinho's side will be joined in the last 16 by Germany's Schalke after they beat 10-man Basel 2-0.
The Swiss side's defender,[url=http://www.oksko.com/air-max-33]Nike Air Max[/url], Ivan Ivanov was sent off in the 31st minute with Schalke taking full toll of the extra man in the second-half. Goals from 20-year-old Julian Draxler in the 50th minute followed by Joel Matip seven minutes later ensured second place in the group for the Bundesliga side at the expense of their opponents.
