Borussia Dortmund gained revenge for their defeat in the reverse tie and won 3-1 against Italian giants Napoli.

The German giants ended a worrying run of three straight defeats on Tuesday night with a crucial victory over Napoli, which kept their chances of qualifying alive.

Marco Reus gave the home side the lead in the 10th minute from the spot.

Jakub Blaszczykowski doubled their lead right at the hour mark.

10 minutes later Lorenzo Insigne returned one for the visitors, but it all ended in the 78th minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted the third goal for BVB.

It started great for Borussia, who were awarded a penalty in the 10th minute after Robert Lewandowski was held back by Fernandez.

Reus stepped up and slotted the ball low at the right, sending Pepe Reina the wrong way.

Few minutes later Reus could have made it 2-0 but his dipping, swerving free-kick was saved by Reina.

Than Napoli started to get in the game and in the 29th minute Jose Callejon went past a few defender and struck the ball past Weidenfeller, but his shot hit the post.

The second half started at the same way as the first started and BVB came close to scoring twice.

First Reina denied Reus a second goal and a few moments later saved Lewandowski's tap-in, while Raul Albiol cleared the ball twice of the goal-line.

At the hour mark Lewandowski passed to Kuba, who slided a cool finish past Reina to finally make it 2-0.

Yet substitution Lorenzo Insigne received a fantastic pass from Gonzalo Higuain and finished from a tight angle in the 71th minute.

Seven minutes later Lewy again assisted. This time the receiver was Aubameyang, who chipped the ball over to complete the 3-1 win.
