Arsenal have a great recent record in this fixture, having won the exact same fixture last season.

The Gunners played well against Manchester City in the Premier League last weekend and they will be hoping to get their Champions League campaign off to a winning start.

However, Dortmund is one of the most difficult places to go in Germany and Jurgen Klopp’s team have recovered well after a shaky opening Bundesliga performance. ‘The Wall’ will make the match an intimidating one for the Gunners.

BVB have several players who can hurt Arsenal, including some who were linked with moves to the North London club during the summer transfer window.

The problem for Arsene Wenger in the build up to this game has been how he’d cope at right-back following an injury to Mathieu Debuchy and hardly ideal preparation for Calum Chambers who has been ill.
