While it has been a very good week for Arsenal with three good performances, although a better result in the first against Manchester United would have been nice, it has been the exact opposite for the team we beat in the second of our games, Borussia Dortmund.
It is almost unbelievable to think that the team that Jurgen Klopp took to the Champions League final last summer and that gave us a footballing lesson in Germany this season, are languishing at rock bottom of the German Bundesliga.
Fresh from the beating we gave them at the Emirates on Wednesday, which followed a disappointing draw with Paderborn, they travelled to Frankfurt yesterday for a crucial match and they lost 2-0. To make matters worse, Dortmund’s already long injury list was added to by their Polish full back Piszczek.
They have now lost five and drawn one of their last seven league games and face 7th place Hoffenheim before Anderlecht head to Germany next week. With injuries and form hammering Dortmund, the chances of the Belgians doing Arsenal a big favour in that game have gone up massively.
So if Dortmund again fail to win and stay rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga this weekend, I think Wenger will have to assume the best and go full strength to beat Galatasaray in Turkey. Could it be?
