Borussia Dortmund vs Arsenal: live stream, start time, TV info and more

Three teams are tied for the lead in Group F in UEFA Champions League play. Two of those teams are squaring off on Wednesday, Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal. A fortnight ago Dortmund beat Arsenal in London, and even though they have home field advantage beating the English Premier League leaders won’t be easy.

“Dortmund are a very good football team and so are Arsenal – so we should see a good symphony,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said, via “We play to win everywhere. We have a positive attitude in our approach to the game.”

“Dortmund are a very positive side, we are a very positive side, so at least you have the guarantee that two teams will try to win the game. I don’t know if this will be a decisive match – it also depends what happens between Marseille and Napoli – but it is a very important match for us now, because we lost at home and now have to win the away games.”

“We try to win every away game, which gives us strength and motivation. We had a few problems at home, but I hope those are over given we won the Liverpool match. [Robert] Lewandowski is quite dangerous at home, but it is down to us to control the ball, that’s the best way to keep them quiet. We try to control the game and have the ball.”

“We want to do well in all competitions. The fact that we have five points’ edge in the Premier League does not mean we don’t want to be successful in the Champions League as well.”

“We maybe lost the first game because we wanted to absolutely win it at all costs and we exposed ourselves. It was a midfield battle and we got caught on the counterattack because we were all up front and were not happy with the draw. It will strengthen the resolve of my team to come out and show a different level.”
