Arsenal will finally take to the field in Europe’s second best competition in this game.

It shows how far down the Gunners have come after they finished a disappointing 5th in the Premiership last season.

The uncertainty surrounding Arsene Wenger’s future did not help and that had a major impact on their summer business with many players intent on leaving and new players choosing to sign for their opponents.

The Gunners finally got their season back on track with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend and Wenger will be eager for his players to build a winning run.

This game gives them a huge opportunity as their opponents have been dismal so far this season.

Despite finishing an impressive 5th in the Bundesliga last season, FC Koln have started this season in a very disappointing manner.

They have scored just one goal and conceded 7 in their opening three league games so far and they have not even played a top four side yet.

They lost their top striker Anthony Modeste to the Chinese league and they are yet to fill the huge void his departure has created.

They are early season favourites to be relegated and if they don’t start winning games, they could find themselves struggling at the bottom of the Bundesliga and out of Europe.
