After an emphatic 6-1 win over Southampton in the fourth game of the Premier League, Arsenal look to start strong in the Champions League, as well.

In their first game, they take on Montpellier HSC away from home at the Stade de la Mosson in France. This is by no means an easy match considering Montpellier are the defending champions, though they are struggling at the moment with just four points in five games.

It certainly doesn't help that Rene Girard's side lost their top scorer and Golden Boot winner Olivier Giroud, who of course moved to the Emirates this summer.
