Arsenal v B Dortmund

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Arsenal have kept two clean sheets in their last 11 fixtures
Expert verdict
Two teams who are close to a crisis domestically meet in the Champions League and backing goals looks to be the best bet. Arsenal’s defence continues to leak far too many goals, including 2-0 in Dortmund on matchday one, but the Germans have been shocking in the Bundesliga and will struggle to keep a clean sheet.
