Arsenal v Borussia Dortmund Preview, Champions League, Tuesday 22nd October 2013

Arsenal have had an excellent start to their new season and not only are the currently top of the English Premiership, they also top Group F having won both of their opening two games played. Manager Arsene Wenger was not the fans favourite person after their opening day defeat at home to Aston Villa, but it seems all has now been forgiven after the signing of Ozil from Real Madrid and with the way Arsenal are playing at the moment they look real contenders to win this tournament.

Borussia Dortmund have also had a very good start to their new campaign and currently occupy 2nd position in the German Bundesliga table and are just 1 point behind league leaders and arch rivals Bayern Munich. Jürgen Klopp’s side are in second place of the Group F table, but will be fully aware that this will be a very difficult game come tuesday night in north london.

Arsenal have been in exceptional form since the aquistition of Mesut Ozil and with home advantage and a packed out Emirates Stadium fully behind them, they do look the more likely to win this game and the bookmakers seem to agree as they currently have the hosts priced up as the clear favourites at best odds of 11/8 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) to keep their excellent run going.

A game that many people will expect Arsenal to win as they have been in excellent form recently and with a resounding 4-1 victory over the weekend against Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium confidence of the players is obviously going to be extremely high.

Borussia Dortmund to rate a threat though and with them also being in pretty decent form of late they certainly have the players in their side to cause what would be a bit of an upset on tuesday night, as it seems that striker Robert Lewandowski does save his best performances for this competition.

The goal stats suggest the game to see at least a couple of goals and with the amount of world class indvidual’s on show in both sides it would take a brave person to bet against it, so betting markets such as Anytime Goalscorer, Total Match Goals and Both Teams to Score are also possible options to look at when looking for a betting opportunity on this match.
