Marseille maintained their 100 percent start in the Champions League with an slick victory over Borussia Dortmund, but Didier Deschamps is not getting carried away just yet.

The French outfit currently occupy top spot in Group F with two wins from two, with the latter a 3-0 triumph over Bundesliga champions Dortmund on Wednesday night.

A brace from Andre Ayew and a Loic Remy strike made sure of the result at the Stade Vélodrome, following three points at Olympiacos in the opening encounter.

But, with Arsenal up next for Deschamps' side, the former Chelsea midfielder realises there will still be plenty of twists and turns before their progression can be assured.


"To have six points after two games is good," Deschamps told Canal+.

"In the last two seasons, we had zero points (after two games). But to qualify you need a minimum of 10.

"We've made a good start, but we're not there yet."
