(Sporting Alert) — Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has decided to keep faith in the same starting side that beat Liverpool in EPL on Saturday for Wednesday night’s Champions League game with Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park in Group F.
That mean Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta all start for the Premier League club, with Olivier Giroud leading the attack.
Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny start in the heart of the defense as the Gunners look to reverse the result from Matchday 3 when they were beaten at home.
Robert Lewandowski, who scored the winning goal for Borussia Dortmund in the last clash is again expected to be a handful for Arsenal’s back line, while Marco Reus, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jakub Błaszczykowski and Nuri Şahin all have starting places.
