Two of the best teams in Europe will have another round after the thrilling encounter they played two weeks ago.

Borussia Dortmund stunned the world as they defeated Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, and the current Champions League runner-up will look to conquer another positive but this time in front of their fans at the Signal Iduna Park.

Both sides have six points in three matches so far as they sit at the top of the table so this game looks like a decisive game as both teams will look to take another step towards a possible qualification into the next round.

Borussia Dortmund have several dominant players in Ilkay Gündogan, Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, but their most deadly weapon is Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker scored the winning goal against The Gunners on the last minutes of the match, and he’s been on an absolute tear this year, cementing his place as one of the best strikers in the world.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have been one of the most pleasant surprises in the Premier League due to the start of their campaign, and they are looking to replicate their success at the European Stage. Aaron Ramsey has been the heart and soul of the team this year, and he’s the one managing the tempo and the offense for Arsenal. He will need to be at their best if Arsenal want to get a positive result out of Germany.

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 2-2 Arsenal

The two teams are very well matched against each other and this one could go down as a draw. No team should dominate the other and this game should end being a thrilling encounter that will be up for grabs until the final whistle.
