Arsenal will be hoping to continue their fine form in the UEFA Champions League as they prepare to face Lens at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners currently sit at the top of Group B with nine points from four matches, while Lens in third place have accumulated five points.

Arsenal will be looking to secure their first-ever victory against Lens in the Champions League, having failed to win in their previous three encounters. The Gunners will be eager to break this streak and maintain their position at the top of the group.

Lens, on the other hand, have had success against English teams in European competitions, with two wins, one draw, and two defeats in their five previous encounters. Their last away game against Arsenal was in April 2000, where they suffered a 1-0 defeat.

Mikel Arteta’s side will take confidence from their strong home record in European competitions under his management. Since losing his first European home game in charge of Arsenal in February 2020, Arteta has only suffered one defeat in his last 12 home matches. The Gunners have won five of their last six home games in the Champions League.

Lens will be aware of the historical dominance of English sides over French teams in England. In the last nine Champions League games between French and English sides played in England, the visitors have suffered eight defeats and managed only one victory.

Arsenal’s attacking prowess has been evident in this season’s Champions League campaign, with all nine of their goals coming from open play. Only Atlético Madrid and Bayern Munich have scored as many goals from open play in the competition’s group stage.

The return of defender Ben White will provide Arteta with more options in defense and bolster Arsenal’s chances of securing a positive result. White’s availability will strengthen Arsenal’s defensive line and provide additional depth and flexibility in squad selection.

As Arsenal continue their pursuit of silverware on multiple fronts, they will be hoping to extend their impressive form in the Champions League. A victory against Lens would not only solidify their position at the top of the group but also boost their confidence for the remainder of the campaign.
