The upcoming game should be considered an important game for the gunners if they want to secure top spot in their group, where finishing second has had a history of being Arsenal’s undoing in the knock-out phase.
Arsene said on the selection of Van Persie:
Robin van Persie started last time on the bench because we had medical concerns.
Tomorrow we have no medical concerns at all so that means he will start.
The Dutchman has maintained a long-run of great form, most recently by bagging a brace against Norwich at the weekend and in turn secured the victory and all three points for the gunners.
Many fans will want his goal-scoring run to continue and hopefully the Dutchman can bag a few against Dortmund and secure our progression to the group stages of the Champions League.
