Arsenal will go on the road to Germany to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday night in a huge clash for Group F. At the moment the group is tied three ways, with the Gunners, Dortmund and Napoli all locked on six points from their three games so far. Today's result will go a long way to deciding who will win the group, and even who will qualify for the knock out stages. The game will kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Gunners will have a stiff challenge tonight against last year's losing finalists. Dortmund are not a side to messed with as Arsenal found out recently when the German team caused an upset in their first meeting at the Emirates Stadium in north London.
If they are to win today's game they will be without Jack Wilshere, who is recovering from an ankle injury.
The Gunners lost 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago and if they lose tonight it could see them drop to third in the table and on the brink with two games to go. A defeat today would probably mean the Gunners have to win their final two games to have a chance of qualifying for the knock out stages.
A draw would keep the Gunners in contention but thing would still be on a knife edge. Most pundits expect Napoli to win against basement team Marseille tonight, which would move them to nine points.
In other injury news, Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs is available after a hip problem, but Mathieu Flamini has not travelled because of a groin injury. Speedy Theo Walcott also remains out following minor abdominal surgery.
Arsenal had the perfect preparation for today's game at the weekend, defeating Liverpool 2-0 to see them move five points clear at the top of the English Premier League. Some say it's too early for talk of the Gunners being title contender this year, but if they can get to Christmas and still be top of the table then that talk will be warranted.
Meanwhile, to give an idea of the challenge awaiting Arsenal tonight, Dortmund have won all eight of their home games this season.
"We are a positive side, Dortmund are a positive side," Wenger added. "So you have a guarantee both sides will try and win the game.
"I am not a music specialist but Dortmund is a very good team so we should see a good symphony tomorrow." he said.
