Arsenal vs Borrussia Dortmund *champions league*   Leave a comment


Arsenal are turning the
toughest looking Champions League
group into a walk in the park so far
and they would take a huge stride
towards their customary place in the
last 16 with victory over Borussia
Dortmund on Tuesday.
“We have two very difficult games
coming up against Dortmund,” Arteta
told Arsenal`s website
(www.arsenal.com).
These two sides also
met twice in the group stages of the
Champions League in 2011 when a
Robin van Persie brace secured a
home win for the Gunners while a
stunning late equalizer from Ivan
Perisic secured one point for Dortmund in the return fixture.News on the injury front for Dortmund is not very encouraging though as the likes of Lukas Piszczek and Ilkay Gundogan will miss out with long term injury worries while the likes of Marcel Schmelzer and Sebastien Kehl are also doubtful having not fully recovered from their injuries.
Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen
Klopp tips Arsenal as the favourites for the Premier League title ahead of the Champions League meeting between the two sides although this may be seen as the manager playing a mind game and setting his site on piling us pressure on the north london team.
Arsene wenger is a happy man at the moment with all things working for him. The return of last season best performer in the form of santi Carzola is a welcome development while the duo of Jack and Ramsey are doing wonderfully well with jack grabbing what has been dubbed goal of the century on saturday against Norwich.
