Arsenal will be confident of once again making it through the Champions League group stage, despite having drawn Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in what is a tricky draw for the Gunners.

A trip to Istanbul to face one of the big Turkish clubs is always a tough proposition – but Arsenal will have been served well by the fact that they have already traveled to face Besiktas during qualifying for the group stage of the competition. The Gunners earned a 0-0 draw on their trip to Besiktas and would view that as a good result on their next posting to Istanbul.
