Arsenal face Jurgen Klopp's Dortmund Borussia on Wednesday night knowing they need just one point from their final two matches to qualify for the knockout stages.

Unfortunately, Arsenal will be without Olivier Giroud against Dortmund because the club did not register him on their Champions League squad list.

Arsenal are also without Wojciech Szczesny, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott for the game, though their defensive options have been boosted with Laurent Koscielny back.

Arsene Wenger confirmed that Wilshere would be "out for a while" after coming off during the 2-1 defeat by Manchester United on Saturday after feeling some discomfort.

Dortmund top the group despite their poor form in the Bundesliga; they are currently in the relegation zone. Klopp's team have won just two of 12 matches so far in the German top flight this season.
