Early team news ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League opener reveals that Tomas Rosicky will miss the return to his former club.
The Czech international missed Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Swansea with a knee injury picked up during the game against Scotland last weekend. Rosicky played for Dortmund the last time the two sides met in Europe, scoring twice in a 2-1 win for the German side.
Also not traveling to Germany is Aaron Ramsey who suffered an ankle knock against Swansea. However, Arsene Wenger will welcome back Alex Song and Gervinho who have now both completed their domestic suspensions.
