Confirmed: Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb line-ups: Flamini starts

Emirates Sunshine

Arsenal host Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League this evening.

Arsenal are looking for revenge this evening as they take on Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

The Gunners suffered a surprise defeat in their opening group game to Zagreb back in early September, and it set the tone for a disappointing Champions League campaign so far.

Their one highlight was beating Bayern Munich at home, but the feel good factor from this victory was undone by a 5-1 hammering at the Allianz Arena.

Olivier Giroud will be particularly keen to make an impact, after it was his red card which set the tone for Arsenal's defeat in Zagreb.

The Gunners have lost three of their four games in the competition this season, but qualification is still possible.

As well as a win, they will need Bayern to beat Olympiakos this evening, and then they will need to win in Greece.

All eyes will be on Arsenal's midfield to see how they cope without Francis Coquelin, who was injured against West Brom and will not return until 2016.
