Borussia Dortmund won the 2010-11 edition of the Bundesliga in dominating fashion finishing seven points clear of second-place Bayer Leverkusen.
It was the first time the western German side would win the title since 2001-02 marking a comeback from mid-table obscurity through much of the previous decade.
Dortmund made their last appearance in the European competition in 2002-03 where they were placed in the same group as Arsenal. Both would move forward to the next stage, but Arsenal eventually made it further advancing into the knockout phase of the tournament.
Borussia Dortmund is managed by Jurgen Klöpp. The Stuttgart-born former footballer managed FC Mainz for seven years before moving to Dortmund prior to the 2008 season.
Their home games are played at the Signal Iduna Park outside of downtown Dortmund; a stadium which affords a home team advantage due to the loud nature of the 65,000-plus that will be inside for European matches.
Dortmund is currently off to a slow start in this year’s Bundesliga compiling only seven points in five games to this point. Their latest contest saw them drop a 2-1 result to Hertha Berlin; a shock result given that it was Dortmund’s home opener at the Signal Iduna.
The yellow and black will look to get their campaign back on track as they take on the North London club in the first round of the UEFA Champions League Group Stage.
