With league form as good as Arsenal have produced in recent weeks, the Gunners must avoid a slip up in a match that would previously have been a typical banana skin. Ludogorets are yet to really get to grips with Champions League football, having been victorious in only one of their eight outings in the competition.
The Bulgarian champions will sit back against Arsenal and aim to sap any life out of the game. Arsene Wenger has decided to rotate for this fixture, with several players due a rest after challenging international fixtures during the recent break.
Although the Gunners were fortunate to claim a draw in their opening group stage fixture against Paris Saint Germain, a victory against Ludogorets will put them in a commanding position in Group A. PSG and Basel also face-off tonight, so wins for the two favourites could well see the group as good as done and dusted.
Seeing as kick-off is getting near, we should probably take a look at the line-ups for this one…
