Paris, Oct 18: Arsenal travels to Marseille looking to put aside its domestic struggles and take control of Group F in the Champions League.
Marseille leads with six points ahead of Wednesday's game at the Stade Velodrome. Arsenal has four points, Borussia Dortmund is third with one point and winless Olympiakos is last.
Arsenal has never lost in seven trips to France and is keen to avoid a similar drop-off to last season when it won its first three matches before fading to finish second in its group. That condemned it to a knockout stage matchup with eventual champion Barcelona.
While Arsenal is finally recovering from its poor start in the domestic league, Marseille hasn't as it sits just above the relegation zone in Ligue 1.
