Dortmund - has been ruled out of Borussia Dortmund's UEFA Champions League tie with Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday, while team-mate is doubtful for the match.

Both players picked up injuries to their right ankles in Saturday's defeat to Bayer 04 Leverkusen and while Sahin's injury isn't as serious as first feared, Bender will definitely miss the all-important Group F encounter.

Dortmund have to win in France to secure their place in the knockout stages of Europe's premier club competition.
