UCL Preview: Borussia Dortmund vs. Arsenal (Let the Champions League begin)
The biggest club competition starts with Arsenal traveling to an all familiar ground i.e the home of Borussia Dortmund (Signal Iduna Park). The Gunners had met the German club in the previous two group stages of the competition with Arsenal finishing second behind Dortmund in last seasons campaign.
TEAM NEWS: Nacho Monreal hasn’t traveled with a back injury while Debuchy is out for a long time. Chambers will be assessed before the match.
After last weekend’s disappointing 2-2 draw against Manchester City, it’s time for Arsenal to clinch a victory but that is a major doubt with them having to travel to a daunting ground against one of the most dangerous teams in Europe at the moment i.e Dortmund. Arsenal managed to grab a late victory at Dortmund last season but Dortmund came back and took their revenge at Emirates Stadium which propelled them to finish above the Gunners in the final group standings. Having said that, it’s a new season and the Gunners are equipped with better players than last season and we hope that players like Sanchez and Welbeck will help the men in red and white to clinch another victory against the German side.
