Last season's finalists Borussia Dortmund breathed life into their hopes of reaching the Champions League knock-out phase with a nervous 3-1 home win over Napoli on Tuesday.
An early Marco Reus penalty and second-half strike by Jakub Blaszczykowski put Dortmund 2-0 up with an hour gone before Lorenzo Insigne pulled one back for Napoli with 20 minutes left. Replacement Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came on to grab Dortmund's third, 12 minutes from time, to calm nerves and put Borussia level on nine points with Napoli in the group behind leaders Arsenal.
The victory at Dortmund's Westfalenstadion avenged Borussia's 2-1 defeat at Napoli in September and gives them hope of reaching the last 16 following their 1-0 home defeat by Arsenal three weeks ago. With the Gunners three points clear, who will qualify from Group F will now be decided by the final round of pool matches when Dortmund travel to Marseille and Napoli host Arsenal in a fortnight.
Having lost his entire back four to injury, Borussia coach Jurgen Klopp moved defensive midfielder Sven Bender to center-back alongside Greece international Sokratis with his first-choice pairing of Mats Hummels and Neven Subotic ruled out. Dortmund got an early breakthrough when Federico Fernandez hauled down Poland striker Robert Lewandowski in the area and Germany's Reus stepped up to drill home the penalty after 10 minutes.
Just eight minutes later, Reus forced Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina into a diving save when he curled in a free-kick. The first half was a nervy affair and with half an hour gone Napoli hit the post when Jose Callejon junked inside Bender and beat Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller.
