Arsenal will play their second Champions League group game against Lens at the Bollaert-Delelis Stadium on Tuesday. While Lens played out a draw against Sevilla in their group stage opener, Arsenal convincingly beat PSV 4-0 to claim an early lead.
The Gunners are unbeaten across all competitions this season and they will be confident about keeping that run intact with a win against Lens. They dropped points in the Premier League North London derby against Tottenham two weeks ago but have since won against Brentford and Bournemouth.
Lens, on the other hand, got off to a poor start this season, after they went winless in six matches across all competitions. They broke the curse and have won their last two matches and will hope to cause an upset against the Premier League side at their home ground.
