The mighty Gunners are back in action in the Champions League this evening as we attempt to secure qualification to the knockout stages for the 373rd year running.

Borrusia Dortmund are tonight`s visitors to Ashburton Grove, and after narrowly avoiding defeat in Germany, the Bundesliga Giants will have their work cut out tonight to avoid elimination.

That`s not to say it`s going to be an easy game, far from it, but Arsenal are very strong at home in Europe, especially against Non-English teams. Indeed a solitary point would see us through and Leave Dortmund with a nigh on impossible task.

Arsene Wenger`s side remains unchanged from the team that beat Norwich last Saturday with Laurent Koscielny still occupying the right back position in place of injured Carl Jenkinson and Bacary Sagna.

Abou Diaby makes a long awaited return and is on the bench.
