Arsenal, on Tuesday night, will be going into another Champions League game against Ludogorets.

This has seen the Arsene Wenger’s men train ahead of their game on Monday morning.

Arsenal would be heading to Bulgaria in their aim to earn an early qualification into the last 16 teams for the Champions League competition. The Gunners are in Group A and have come away with seven points so far in their first three opening games. They currently top the League side by side with Paris Saint-Germain. The two teams could however be able to qualify for the first knockout stage.

Arsenal would have to beat Ludogorets whilst PSG must endeavor to win their game against Basle this week as well before they can advance to the next stage. In their first leg played at the Emirates Stadium in the early periods of October, the Gunners were in top form as they came off with a six goal thrashing of the visiting Bulgarian Champions.

A hat-trick scored in the second half by Mesut Ozil, goals from Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott ensured that Ludogorets were completely routed.

This result ensured that Arsenal advanced above PSG on the league table with goal differences. By November 23, Wenger would be hosting PSG in what could represent a play-off.

Also, at the last weekend, Arsenal showed off top form as they thumped over Sunderland, coming off with four goals in a 4-1 win at the Stadium of Light.

The first half had seen Sanchez give the Gunners a lead before a penalty by Jermain Defoe ensured that the two teams remained on the same level at the end of the first half.

However, the tempo of the game changed when substitute, Oliver Giroud came in, scoring a brace and Sanchez, completed his own brace as well.

The likely starting XI for Arsenal on Tuesday night is yet unknown but we could be seeing a pair of Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud if we are to go by Wenger’s pronouncements.
