Borussia Dortmund v Arsenal tips – back both teams to score

Perhaps Ozil can steer Arsenal to a victory on Tuesday night

A lively Gunners side can find the net at least once at Signal Iduna Park

Arsenal managed to score home and away against Borussia Dortmund last season and the two teams have been drawn in the Champions League group stage once again.

Marco Reus won’t be available for the German side after sustaining injury in a recent Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland, with Arsene Wenger hoping to see the best from his own star German after some recent criticism leveled at Mesut Ozil.

Ozil has so far struggled to attain the heights of his Real Madrid playing days where the midfielder was something of an assist machine and continues to look underwhelming for Arsenal despite the recent World Cup triumph with the Germans.

“People always have this kind of attitude about him,” Wenger said. “He worked hard against City and he played quite well.

“You see a good Ozil when you watch the game again. Then you realise his timing, his quality of the pass and something you can be frustrated during the game but you must not overreact.

“When you watch the game in a cool manner, you see what a good player he is. I have so many offensive players. I give him freedom to play outside and inside and he likes that.

“It is not easy but Ozil is a team player and he takes it very well.”

Perhaps Ozil can steer Arsenal to a victory on Tuesday night and odds of 3/1 with Coral look ripe about an away win considering that Borussia Dortmund have their own leaky defence this season.

Jurgen Klopp has done some excellent things with the German side including reaching the final of the Champions League two seasons ago, although odds of 23/20 are too short about a home win against an Arsenal team who are unbeaten so far this season.

There was a 2-2 draw between Arsenal and Manchester City on Saturday and it would be no surprise to witness a similar scoreline on Tuesday night.
