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. And with 13 goals scored in this year's group stage, Borussia have the 2nd-best goal-tally. Meanwhile, the Gunners have kept just 2 clean sheets in their last 11 fixtures - against the mighty Burnley and Sunderland - and they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 7 matches of the Champions League.

Arsenal have a 5 point advantage over 3rd placed Anderlecht and are sitting comfortable enough. But they really should have had qualification sewn up by now after throwing a 3-0 lead away against the Belgians only to capitulate in the last half an hour and draw 3-3 in the last Champions League outing. Wenger is a man under pressure after the weekend's 2-1 defeat at home to an injury-depleted Man United team, which leaves his side sitting in 8th place in the Premier League table after back-to-back defeats.
Borussia Dortmund have already qualified through to the knockout stages sitting 5 points clear of Arsenal, but they will want to go through as group winners. They comfortably beat the Gunners 2-0 earlier in the group in Germany and have won all their Champions League matches so far scoring 13 goals in the opening 4 games. Staggeringly they are lying in the relegation zone in the Bundesliga with just 2 wins from their last 10 matches and at the weekend they threw away a 2-0 lead against Paderborn to draw 2-2.
Star man Marco Reus is ruled out for Dortmund but the player who tormented the Gunners all evening in Germany – Ciro Immobile, will start.
