New signing Per Mertesacker insists things will not be getting any easier for Arsenal when they travel to Germany this week for their opening round match in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund.
The current Bundesliga champions are widely considered Arsenal’s toughest opponents in Group F and the tie will prove to be a tough test for the newly formed Arsenal team.
On the upcoming tie with the current German champions Mertesacker said:
Dortmund were the best team in Germany last year, they do a good job passing the ball and have great players.
It will be difficult for us but I know we have very good players and I’m confident we can get a result.
Dortmund are the toughest opponent in our group, so we will be very happy if we can take something from this match.
With a victory finally under our belt, I am hoping that Arsenal come out and perform with the confidence they have been lacking in recent matches. There is no doubt the match will be a tough test but hopefully the lads will be able to come away with the win!
