The Gunners defeated Basel in their last Champions League game and currently top the group with 4 points from their 2 matches so far.

Ludogorets succumbed to a 3-1 defeat in their last Champions League game against French giants PSG. However, they have been in a great form in their domestic league this season. They are currently 2nd in the league with 22nd points, 2 points below the leaders with one game at hand.
The PSG defeat was the only dent on them in their last 12 games, and the London trip won’t be easy either. They will have to go extra miles in this game if they need to avoid a second successive Champions League defeat.
