Arsenal are in tremendous form domestically, having opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League following the 2-0 triumph against Liverpool on Saturday but their last Champions League assignment saw them edged out at home to last year’s runners-up Borussia Dortmund and a similar outcome could be on the cards as the pair renew hostilities in Germany.
Stan James go 8/11 about a home victory in the Westfalenstadion, where the Gunners are 4/1 shots via bet365 and it’s 16/5 courtesy of BetVictor to finish all square.
Dortmund though, are on a high having hammered Stuttgart 6-1 on Friday and their attacking prowess is set to cause Arsene Wenger’s men plenty of headaches, just as it did at the Emirates Stadium.
Subsequently, Ladbrokes’s 2/1 for the hosts to prevail in a contest that sees both teams find the net is worth considering, BetVictor chalk Jurgen Klopp’s charges up at 17/2 to register another 2-1 victory and Robert Lewandowski, who has three in his last two European outings – including the winner in North London, is 7/2 (William Hill) to open the scoring.
Borussia Dortmund to win and both teams to score – 2/1 (Ladbrokes)
