Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists his men will be looking for three points against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday despite the German side’s superb home record.

The Gunners are set to take on the Bundesliga giants sitting at the top of Group F, having taken six points from their first three games.

But it is tight at the top, with both Dortmund and Italian side Napoli also on six points and the group is very much up for grabs at the halfway stage.

Having taken care of Marseille and Napoli, the Emirates outfit were confident of downing Dortmund last time out at home but suffered a 2-1 loss with a late goal from Robert Lewandowski.

And the Poland international striker is clearly still in top form as he netted a hat-trick in a 6-1 victory over Stuttgart at the weekend.

BVB have made their Westfalenstadion ground a fortress in Europe and have won their last seven European games on home soil, while never losing to an English team on their own patch.

But Arsenal were good enough to beat the mighty Bayern Munich away from home in last season’s competition, and Wenger has made it clear that his charges will go into the match with the same mentality as they always do.

“We take belief from Bayern. We play everywhere to win and that will not change of course, we will have a positive attitude in our approach to the game,” he said.

“We have played everywhere in Europe and always had the same approach and will be again like that on Wednesday.”
