- Galatasaray is already out of every European competition at this point. They cannot even get the Europa spot.
- A goal for the Turkish side will be their 100th goal in the Champions League.
- The Gunners have lost two games out of their last five games in all competitions.
- Aaron Ramsey has netted four goals in five games against the Turkish clubs.
A win for the home side will not secure their spot for the next round, even they cannot get the third spot. While Arsenal's win might take them to top depending on the other game between Borussia Dortmund and Anderlecht.
