The Gunners eventually conceded in the 88th minute at Signal Iduna Park after being under fire for some time from the German champions and Gervinho said it was good to get a point away from home although it did feel like a loss when Ivan Perisic fired home the leveler.
"In the Champions League we did very well by returning from Germany with a draw," he told skysports.com.
"Dortmund are a very good team but to concede three minutes from the end was like losing the game.
"In the Champions League, if you can win at home, the draw away is priceless."
Gervinho also said that the Gunners would now look to the Premier League with a vital game against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park next on the agenda.
"Now our focus is on the league. We need to keep track of the leaders," he added.
