Arsene Wenger will be looking to Mezut Ozil, Podolski and Danny Wellbeck to inspire the home team to a win against a tough Galatasaray. Arsenal have been going through a real rough patch with only one win in their last five to go with two losses and two draws. The team looks unbalanced and defensively inept at times but still possess lightning fast counter attacking forwards and players with real quality like Ozil. On his day there might not be anyone better in the Arsenal side than the enigmatic German, with Aaron Ramsey out through injury Wenger will look to Ozil to be the inspiration. Can Wellbeck and him provide the spark needed to get Arsenal's season going?
On the other side Galatasaray come into this off the back of a win at the weeekend. The key men for the Turkish side will be Yilmaz upfront and Sneijder in the middle. If Galatasaray are to get anything from this game both will have to be at the top of their game. Cesar Prandelli's time in charge has been up and down and Galatasary were poor in the opening game of the Champions League against Anderlecht. Arsenal are a step up and one has to think the turks are going to struggle at the Emirates.
I am going to take the overs here, I think Arsenal will bust this one open and score three themselves, with Arsenals defensive frailities its hard not to see Galatasaray netting one themselves so the overs looks a really solid better here. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
