They need another 3 points to guarantee qualification to the knock-out round and will have their eyes set on a win on Tuesday night. Arsenal will enter this game from a 1-4 away win over Sunderland last Saturday.
Meanwhile, Ludogorets will be preparing for a revenge of Arsenal’s 6-0 brutality on them at London two weeks ago.

They are a side in desperate need of a win, at least to keep their hopes up for a place in the knock-out round of one of the European competitions.

Ludogorets vs Arsenal: Prediction
There is no doubt that Arsenal are once again huge favourites in this Champions League game. Their form has been good and a key players are stepping up whenever required. Ludogorets were not yet able to extend their good domestic form to Champions League. And they are side that will struggle against elite European sides
However, Arsenal’s away form in Europe is a thing to worry. They have lost 3 of their last 5 away games. The game is expected to feature a lot of goals like the first leg, both teams are good in the attacking front. So this match could see at least 3 goals.
