Since beating Arsenal 2-1 in the Emirates Stadium , Borussia Dortmund have been on a ridiculously good run of form beating Schalke 3-1 and Stuttgart 6-1. It was a very impressive performance last Friday night as Robert lewandowski netted a second half hat trick and the strange thing was that Dortmund went behind in the game as well. With three teams sitting on six points in this group and Napoli at home to whipping boys Marseille ,Dortmund will want to secure a win at home to put themselves in a driving position for qualification. Jurgen Klopp I'm sure will go for it from the start and Dortmund just dont look capable of playing a holding game as their best defence seems to be a good offence.
A great win on Saturday evening for the Gunners left Arsenal top of the Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 win over second placed Liverpool. Ramsey, Giroud, cazorla were all very impressive in that top of the table clash. Arsene wenger will have to be happy with the way his team has bounced back from the defeat to Dortmund with two wins on the bounce int he Premier League. Olivier Giroud, though appears to be the key for Arsenal with Ozil and Cazorla pulling the strings on the wings and Ramsey supporting the front runners from midfield it is up to the frenchman Giroud to take the chances when they come.
We had the over in this game when the two sides met in London and I'm taking the same bet here, no way I see these two teams not scoring goals. Borussia Dortmund have been so impressive going forward in recent weeks that I think Arsenal's rearguard could be in for a rough time of it but equally I think Arsenal are well capable of hitting Dortmund on the counter attack. I'm taking the overs here and after going 3 for 4 yesterday I think this will be an easy winner for us. Follow me on twitter @antonpippo
