They scored early with Sanchez producing a moment of magic while Theo Walcott scored yet another goal for Arsenal to make it 2-0 for the gunners.

Arsenal is the most inform team from England at the moment and they have already accumulated 4 points in the opening two games which include a respectable 1-1 draw against Paris Saint Germain on the opening matchday of this year’s champions League. Arsene Wenger is likely to go with a strong lineup for Tuesday’s game where three points will put Arsenal to 7 points while PSG are expected to beat Basel which means Arsenal will need just one more win in the last three games to qualify for knockouts.
Team News & Possible Lineups: Wenger is likely to stick with his trusted 4-2-3-1 system where Sanchez is set to start upfront while Ozil, Iwobi and Walcott to play in attacking roles ahead of Granit Xhaka and Santi Cazorla. There are rumours Coquelin might start in place of Cazorla but its remain to be seen which the final lineups are announced. Nacho Monreal and Bellerin should keep their places as full backs while Mustafi and Koschielny to play in heart of defense.
Ludogorets are heavy under dogs going into the game but in Jonathan Cafu they have a quality striker upfront who can cause problems for Arsenal defense.
This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Tuesday night.
Predictions: Looking at the form of Arsenal they should ease past Ludogorets specially since they are playing at home in London. I am going with another comfortable win for Arsenal in this one.
