Arsenal and Marseille played out a drab goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium, and the Gunners will have to wait to seal progress to the knock-out rounds.

With the in-fire Robin Van Persie starting on the bench, the Group F leaders lacked the firepower which earned them the impressive 5-3 win at Chelsea on Saturday.

Arsenal weren't helped by resolute defending from their French opponents, while their own failure up front contributed to a forgettable encounter.
