Latest Arsenal v Dortmund odds in the betting, free bets on Liverpool as Winner offer £10 at 11/2 on ARSENAL beating BORUSSIA DORTMUND tonight (was 13/10). Thats a profit of £55 if the Gunners win!
Borussia Dortmund are certainly playing well below their best at the moment, and with the news that inspirational midfielder Marco Reus is out until the new year with ankle ligament damage, this is definitely a chance for the Arsenal to get their season back into the groove!
Arsenal can book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League and boost confidence levels when they host Borussia Dortmund at the Emirates tonight (Ko 19:45).
Its a game that Arsene Wenger will surely be targetting, and it would take a foolish punter to turn down the 11/2 on offer on the home win. The Gunners should have already secured their place in the knock out rounds, however somehow blew a big lead against Anderlecht in their last Champions League match.
Cruising with a 3-0 advantage, Arsenal conceded three late goals to allow the visitors to earn the unlikeliest of points.
Domestically Arsenal have been poor this season, sitting down in eighth position, following consecutive league defeats to both Swansea and Manchester Utd, and there is speculation (once again) over Arsene Wenger’s future at the club.
If Arsenal fans think they have it bad at the moment, spare a thought for their German opponents. Borussia Dortmund have endured a nightmare league campaign and sit in 16th spot after their weekend draw with Paderborn, and unbelievably find themselves in the relegation zone in Bundesliga.
In the Champions League they have been excellent however, winning all four games and are already secure of a place in the next round, however pressure is mounting on manager Jurgen Klopp, and with star midfielder Marco Reus a massive injury blow to them, things will not get any easier.
Both sides have won two of the five meetings, with the first fixture back in 2011 ending all square.
The pair have been drawn together in three of the last four Champions League group stages, with Dortmund winning at home earlier this year.
Elsewhere in the group, Galatasaray desperately need a result away to Anderlecht who sit above the Turkish side.
Jack Wilshere’s injury in the weekend loss at Manchester United has ruled the midfielder out of the clash, while Aaron Ramsey is likely to drop into a deeper role alongside Mikel Arteta in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Santi Cazorla operating behind Danny Welbeck.
Arsenal have been over reliant on Alexis Sanchez since his summer move and the former Barcelona man will start again. The man from Chile has been in blistering form this season, and should be well backed to find the net once more tonight.
As mentioned, Borussia Dortmund will be without Marco Reus, who is unlikely to feature again in 2014, after he went off against Paderborn, and there are also big injury concerns over the fitness of Sven Bender, Mats Hummels, Oliver Kirch & Nuri Sahin, who are all struggling.
Shinji Kagawa will start on his return to England, after two years with Manchester United, whilst Erik Durm will operate from full-back.
Arsenal: Szczesny; Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs; Ramsey, Arteta; Chamberlain, Cazorla, Sanchez; Welbeck
Dortmund: Weidenfeller; Piszczek, Subotic, Ginter, Durm; Gundogan, Kehl; Mkhitaryan, Kagawa, Jojic; Aubameyang
It should be another memorable night at the Emirates, and at a price of 11/2 to win at home, bringing home a significant return of £55 for a £10 bet its one which cannot be ignored.
