Mathieu Valbuena's late winner sealed a stunning comeback from Marseille in a 3-2 win against Borussia Dortmund to book the French side's place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

OM looked to be heading for the Europa League as they trailed 2-0 to the Germans at half-time while Olympiacos - just a point behind Marseille at kick-off - were in the process of comfortably beating a below-par Arsenal 3-1 in Greece.

Jakub Blaszczykowski and Mats Hummels put Dortmund in front at the break but Loic Remy and Andre Ayew drew Marseille level before Valbuena snatched second place for his side in the most dramatic of circumstances.
