Dortmund boss Klopp: We have a score to settle with Arsenal

Professorial German is relishing the challenge of another cerebral joust with his French counterpart in London.

In Champions League football, Arsenal have a strong record against last season's finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Having played each other four times in the past ten years, Arsene Wenger has registered a winning record of two triumphs, offset by just one loss and one draw. Against current BVB boss Jurgen Klopp, though, Wenger is undefeated and it irks one of the continent's fastest-rising managers.

'We have a score to settle with Arsenal,' said Klopp, a two-time Bundesliga champion with the club, as quoted by BBC Sport.

Dortmund and Arsenal share Group F with Napoli and Marseille in one of the toughest draws in the competition, something Klopp is unfazed by: 'It's a great, evenly-balanced group with four teams that all have what it takes to progress from the group stage.

'I've never been to Napoli but am really looking forward to the atmosphere. It's going to be very exciting.'

Klopp and Dortmund will also be looking to exact revenge on Marseille, as the Ligue 1 representatives defeated the German team by a 3-2 scoreline two years ago.
