Team news

Borussia Dortmund will be without the key duo of Nuri Sahin and Marco Reus, with the latter in particular a real blow for the Germans.

Reus will be out for around a month and their chances of going far in the competition are significantly increased with the winger in the side.

Both Ciro Immobile and Adrian Ramos could feature, with the latter likely to be used from a wide position.

Mathieu Debuchy is suspended, although would have missed the match through injury even if he wasn’t dismissed against Besiktas.

Arsenal have just four fit defenders available to them, meaning Calum Chambers will come in at right back for the Frenchman.

Danny Welbeck looks set to keep his place up front, with Mesut Ozil likely to be named among the substitutes.

Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Durm; Kehl, Groskreutz; Mkhitaryan, Kagawa, Ramos; Immobile

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny; Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Arteta, Wilshere; Sanchez, Ramsey, Cazorla; Welbeck
