Borussia Dortmund host Arsenal London once again for the Champions League group stage in a match with different variables, but the same stake. Dortmund want to avenge the home defeat from last year, and Arsenal need to prove that the result against Man City was just an oversight. However, the bookmakers favor the hosts to win with Unibet giving them 2.00 odds for an outright win as opposed to Arsenal’s 3.70.
Jack Wilshere stated that his team is becoming more resilient, and sees the Gunners having a stronger mentality that will allow them to control the match and come from behind if needed to win a match. Against Manchester City Arsenal started rather strong, were able to keep the ball and enjoy several good chances to open the score, but Danny Welbeck wasted a very good chance to put his new team ahead. The visitors have also injury news as Debuchy was sidelined with an injury that will keep him off the field for a long period of time.
Borussia Dortmund won against an uninspired Freiburg during the weekend where fans favorite Shinji Kagawa scored a great goal on his first match back. “Shinji is very good for us, very good indeed,” said midfielder Sebastian Kehl. “Especially given the current situation with injuries we are faced with. He still needs a bit more to catch up with us but he`ll get there.” Speaking about Dortmund’s injuries, their never-ending list sees Gundogan back in training, but still unable to play, which makes Kagawa being fit of much more importance. Ciro Immobile is still doubtful as no definite diagnosis has been given for the Italian striker, while Mats Hummels was set for a fitness test today.
These two teams are the biggest ones from group D, and while the Gunners might have more Champions League experience, the Yellow Wall will still stand behind their team and push them for a win. Unibet has Dortmund leading at half time at 2.55, Arsenal at 3.90 and both teams to score goes for 1.59. Adrian Ramos to score is at 2.60, Aubameyang at 2.95 and Mkhitaryan at 3.20, while for Arsenal we get Danny Welbeck at 3.55, Alexis at 3.65 and Yaya Sanogo at 3.80. We are going to bet 7 units on both teams to score in the second half at 3.05 with Unibet.
