Marseille could be a dangerous side against Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, Gunners attacking midfielder Santi Cazorla believes.

The French giants have endured a torrid Champions League campaign so far and have lost all four of their Group F games, leaving them propping up the section.


But despite Arsenal sitting top of the group with nine points from four games and having won at Marseille already this season, Cazorla is cautious.

Indeed, the Spaniard feels that because Marseille do not really have anything to lose, they are dangerous opponents.


"The main problem I see is that everyone thinks that it's not going to be an easy game for us to win", Cazorla told his club's official site.

"There is nothing at stake for Marseille because they have zero points but they are going to make things difficult for us.

"It may be tough and if we're not careful we might slip and then we might not be able to get through to the next round.

"We need to understand that it's a vital match. If we get the right result we can automatically go to the next round.

"If we obtained a bad result then it would make things very complicated for us to go to Napoli and win there."

Marseille warmed up for their trip to Arsenal by recording a 3-1 win away at Ajaccio in Ligue 1 on Friday evening.
