Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp admitted he was relieved to be “back in the race” for a Champions League last 16 berth after their 3-1 win over Napoli.

“Now we’re back in the race,” said Klopp, whose side broke a three-match losing streak.

“We couldn’t have done more to set things up for the last game.

“We knew that this would be a spectacular match, but I didn’t expect to see so many chances and so much excitement on the pitch. We wasted a lot of opportunities, but (Napoli goalkeeper) Pepe Reina also made some great saves.

“We worked hard and recorded a highly deserved win, but Napoli were a very tough opponent and it wasn’t easy for us.”Reuters
