First off, apologies for a lack of preview and the brevity of this here intro. Work sucks sometimes, and right now it's sucking for everyone simultaneously.
So here we are, two weeks later. Dortmund took three points from Arsenal last week at the Emirates in what Wenger called a "naive" performance; Arsenal want those points back. Well, OK, that's not how points work, but you know what I mean. Arsenal have a good enough team that they can win against Dortmund; the question is did they learn enough from the loss at the Emirates to not make the mistakes they made then? Arsenal played a good game in spells that day; if they can cut back on the mental lapses, they should be able to take at least a point from their visit to Germany today.
