Arsenal will be competing in the Champions League for the first time since the 2016-17 season this term. The Gunners have managed to make it through the group stage in each of their last 17 appearances, with their most recent exit at this stage of the competition coming back in 1999-2000. They will be the clear favorites to top Group B this season.
Arsenal have made a solid start to the new season, and they will be looking to transfer their domestic performances to the European competition on Wednesday. This will be the first time that the two sides have clashed in the competition since 2006-07, when the Gunners landed a 2-1 aggregate win.
However, PSV have fond recent memories against the Gunners, as they recorded a 2-0 win in the Netherlands against their rivals in the Europa League last term. But, the Dutch side are winless in their previous four visits to North London, losing on two occasions. However, the clashes between the sides in London have been low-scoring affairs, with just four goals being scored in total.
PSV will make their return to the competition on Wednesday, as they previously competed in the Champions League in 2018-19. They have played 110 games in the tournament, which is the second-most for a Dutch side behind Ajax. But, they will need to get off to a perfect start to enhance their chances of reaching the knockout round.
