Following a convincing away win over Sunderland at the weekend, Arsenal travel to Bulgarian champions in search of three more points that would take the North London side a step closer to reaching the next stage.
Arsenal have an impressive record in all competitions, having not lost since the opening day of the Premier League season, so they’ll be looking to continue their unbeaten run, against a side hoping to avenge their 6-0 defeat at Emirates Stadium.
With Arsenal finishing second in the group stage in the last six season, Arsene Wenger has said it’s a priority to finish top ahead of main rivals Paris Saint Germain this time round.
November has arguably been Arsenal’s worst month in recent seasons, and in order to change that, a win tonight will breathe some hope into the month that Arsenal usually falter in, especially ahead of this weekend’s North London derby at home. You could as well dub this period as “Nervous November”, as it’s a time when games come thick and fast.
