Dortmund come into the midweek European fixture after their 6-1 crushing victory over VfB Stuttgart in the last Bundesliga fixture. Robert Lewandowski was the star of the match after be bagged a second half hat-trick.

In the previous Champions League fixture, Jurgen Kloop's side defeated Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates. Summer signing Henrik Mkhitaryan opened the scoring for last season's finalists before Olivier Giroud equalised for the Gunners before the break.

However, Lewandowski 's strike in the final quarter of the game gave Dortmund their second victory of the group stage.

Meanwhile, Arsenal enter this game after defeating Liverpool 2-0 at the Emirates in the Premier League. Santi Cazorla opened the scoring for the north London side before Aaron Ramsey doubled the lead in the second half.

The victory over Liverpool has seen Arsenal increase their lead at the top as they sit at the top of the table with 25 points from 10 games. However, Group F table in the Champions League could go till the final fixture as three clubs, Arsenal, Dortmund and Napoli are fighting for the two spots.

All three clubs share six points after three games and a victory for the Gunners over Dortmund could give them the much needed victory in Germany.

What Managers Say

Jurgen Klopp: "When I watch Arsenal in the last 10 years, it is nearly perfect football, but we all know they didn't win a title. In Britain they say that they like Arsenal but they have to win something. Who wins the title? Chelsea, but with different football, I would say."

"This is the philosophy of Arsène Wenger. I love this but I cannot coach this because I am a different guy. You think many things are similar? I hope so in some moments, but there are big differences, too."

Arsene Wenger: "Maybe we had not the same belief at home [Arsenal lost 2-1 to Dortmund a fortnight ago] because we failed in a few big home games and you could feel there was a bit more scepticism and less belief maybe at home. Hopefully we got that behind us now with the Liverpool game."
