Arsenal’s history against German opposition reads very favourably heading into their Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, and here are a few stats to prove it.
Arsenal have an excellent track record against German teams in Europe, but just how good is it?
Arsenal Liverpool Pedro: Arsenal and Liverpool are eyeing a January swoop for unsettled Barcelona winger.
Arsenal v Chelsea Wonderkid: Arsenal and Chelsea are in a race to sign West Ham wonderkid.
Arsenal Still In Talks Over Carvalho: Sporting Lisbon President flies to London over Carvalho talks.
Arsene Wenger’s side is unbeaten in their last six away games in Germany, winning three and drawing three. The North London side are also yet to lose this season despite facing Premier League champions Manchester City twice and Everton away.
Jurgen Klopp’s Dortmund will certainly be a difficult hurdle, but the German side have already lost at home once this season against Bayer Leverkusen
Dortmund have never managed to keep a clean sheet against Arsenal in all six games they’ve played, the Gunners running out 1-0 winners at the Westfalenstadion last year.
Dortmund are arguably the toughest opposition in the group for the Premier League side this year, so a win tomorrow night could be vital to clinching top spot.
Arsenal’s best chance of winning will be to keep ten men on the pitch, which they have failed to do in four of their last five matches in European competition.
Both teams will be looking to kick start their Champions League campaign with a win, so we could see plenty of goals tomorrow night; with the victor most probably being stamped heavy favourites to top the group.
