- Story Text: Arsenal's players trained on Tuesday (September 27) as they prepare to face dark horses FC Basel in their Champions League clash.
The Swiss champions, who drew 1-1 against Ludogorets in their opening group fixture, have tasted defeat just once in 10 Champions League matches against English teams, and are unbeaten in 12 games this season.
However, Arsenal have triumphed in all four previous encounters against Swiss opponents, conceding just one goal, and will look to carry forward the momentum from their 3-0 win against Premier League rivals Chelsea when they host Basel on Wednesday (September 28) -- the first time the sides have met in a competitive fixture.
Arsenal, who are attempting to reach the round of 16 for the 17th time in a row, began their group-stage campaign with a 1-1 draw against French champions Paris St. Germain.
