Arsenal players take part in a training sessionReuters

Arsenal will still be buzzing a little from that unbelievable come-from-behind victory over Anderlecht in the Champions League a couple of weeks ago. Having produced that stirring comeback to shock the Belgian side, Arsenal will look for a more straightforward victory when the two teams meet in the reverse Group D fixture of the Champions League at the Emirates on Tuesday.

The English Premier League side can seal their spot in the last 16 of the Champions League with a win over Anderlecht and if Galatasaray do not manage to pick up three points at Borussia Dortmund.

Even if they do not mathematically seal their spot in the knockout rounds with a victory, Arsene Wenger and Arsenal will know three points against Anderlecht in London, and they can pretty much take their foot off the gas in the final two group matches.

Yes, qualifying in first place, particularly if you want to avoid the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid, is important, but the primary objective, especially after that scathing loss to Borussia Dortmund on Matchday One, will be qualification into the round of 16, which will be quite close to being confirmed with victory against Anderlecht.

"Sometimes just to do your job in our game is important," said the always philosophical Wenger. "Let's see if we can do that here. It is far from done because Anderlecht are a team who are certainly more dangerous away from home because they are good on the break.

"I think if we win we have a good chance to qualify. We want to take this opportunity - we are on a good run and we want to take advantage of that."

In the reverse fixture at Anderlecht, Arsenal showed great spirit and belief – two of Wenger's favourite words – to come away with a 2-1 win, scoring both goals right at the end.

Arsenal, in a manner, were lucky to come away with three points from that game, as it was probably one of the poorest performances from the side in a while. However, winning when you are not at your best is a good habit to have, but Wenger will hope to finish off the match early this time around, much like they did in their last Champions League home game against Galatasaray.

"We had a bit of a miraculous win because we needed to go until the last minute, but that also showed our quality," added Wenger. "We have been warned and we have learned a lot from that game.

"We will try to win the game when it is possible. If we can win it at the start, we will do it at the start, if we have to wait until the last minute then we will do it again. But it is difficult to predict.

"Let's first do the job and then we will see. I believe every win makes you stronger and every defeat makes you weaker, so no matter what happens against Anderlecht we will play until the end."

Anderlecht, who would have been heartbroken at seeing not just a point but all three taken away from them at the death, will take heart from the performance against Arsenal two weeks ago, knowing full well if they can use their counter-attacking abilities and pace up front to the maximum they will cause problems to the home team's defence.

"We're going to give it a go," said Anderlecht manager Besnik Hasi, whose side lie five points behind Arsenal having only picked up one point in their opening three Champions League matches. "We've had some bad luck but we've also had some average games in terms of performances.

"The last two or three minutes of the first leg were draining. We were satisfied with the first half, keeping it 0-0. We knew they had a lot of quality and they were going to push hard. We thought if we were organised and kept them out in the first half then we would get more spaces and we could use them. We failed to make it 2-0 or 3-0, though, and some youthful mistakes allowed Arsenal the comeback.

"It's one thing conceding a goal and getting one point, it's another thing to lose the game entirely – nobody saw that coming and it had a hugely negative impact on my young squad. If Arsenal are better than us then I have no problem congratulating them, but in the first game I don't think we got what we deserved."
