The Champions League group stage is here and Arsenal face a tough trip to Germany to play Borussia Dortmund. Read on for the latest live odds comparison, our betting tips and predictions on what we think will transpire.

The home side are firm favourites in the odds, priced at around evens whilst those betting on the Gunners can get odds of closer to 3/1 on Betfair. The draw, which might not be a bad prediction at all, can be backed at 11/4 with Bet365 and others and in what could be a close game that would have to be our main betting tip here at attractive odds.

The Champions League group opening game is, in some ways, about avoiding defeat, especially for the away side and Arsene Wenger would surely settle for a point against a side as strong as Dortmund.

That said, the German team have hardly made a flying start to their campaign and it is possible they too would accept a point in what will probably be their hardest home game. Dortmund are worthy favourites and whilst the betting odds look about right our tip here is for Arsenal to pinch a draw, with 1-1 our prediction.
