0 التعليقات

In undoubtedly the best match of this Champions League round, an in form Arsenal side will look to extend their lead at the top of group F against a Dortmund side that will hope to exploit their pace on the counter.
Arsenal started this year’s Champions League with two victories, at home over Napoli and away over Olympique Marseille. With six points they are currently leading the group F. In the English Premier League they are also doing well. Last weekend Arsenal won 4:1 against Norwich with Özil, Wilshere and super Ramsey getting onto the scoresheet. Without a doubt, the new Gunner, the German Mesut Özil has improved the style of Arsenal. His speed and technical skills together with great passes trigger to the fact that Wenger’s team is thought to be one of the favourites for winning both the Premiership and Champions League. Worth mentioning is also the fact that the Spanish midfielder, Santi Cazorla, is back to the first team. 
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Arteta, Ramsey; Ozil, Cazorla, Wilshere; Giroud.

Borussia Dortmund began this season of German Bundesliga magnificiently. Dortmund lost for the first time only during the 8. game, away against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The goalscorer, Robert Lewandowski, displays a great form already having scored six goals. Not much worse is his teammate, Marco Reuss who has already been recorded as the scorer five times this season. In the Champions League the Jürgen Klopp’s players are now second in their group. In the first round they lost to Napoli, conceding in Italy two goals while scoring only one. They improved in the second round when they won 3:0 against Olympique Marseille. The goalkeeper, Weidenfeller, returns to the first squad after one-match suspension caused by his red card against Napoli.  
Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Großkreutz, Subotic, Hummels, Durm; S Bender, Sahin; Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan, Reus; Lewandowski.
