UCL Preview: Borussia Dortmund vs. Arsenal (A draw/win is necessary)


A win or at least a draw is necessary as Arsenal travels to Germany to face Dortmund in a crunch Matchday 4 night in the UEFA Champions League group stage. Both teams go into this game in brilliant form having getting top notch results against quality oppositions at the weekend in their respective leagues.

This match is vital for Arsenal as after getting to a great start to their group campaign, they faced a setback when Dortmund beat them in a tight 2-1 win 2 weeks ago at the Emirates. So, the Gunners are going into this match needing a positive result to give themselves a fighting chance to qualify to the knockout rounds. 

Team news:  Jack Wilshere is out with a minor ankle injury suffered before the Liverpool game while Kieran Gibbs and Serge Gnabry are back and available.


As we are out of the Capital One Cup which was the last tournament in our priority list, Wenger’s men needs to continue to grow both in the league and the Champions League to keep themselves alive in their top 2 priorities of the season. Arsenal’s star signing Mesut Ozil needs to step up after having a few quiet games for the North London club.
