Shinji Kagawa happy for Borussia Dortmund to "win ugly" at Arsenal

Shinji Kagawa says Borussia Dortmund will be happy to win "ugly" tonight at Arsenal.

The Germans put themselves back in the Group F running by beating Olympiakos but need another win tonight to stay in the hunt.

Kagawa said: "That last result has lifted us. This is like a final for us and we must avoid defeat if we are to progress.

"We drew 1-1 with Arsenal in Dortmund and it was a fair result.

"Now I am looking for us to win an ugly match - I'd rather that than we play well but lose."

But the Japanese star, 22, warned: "Robin Van Persie is a sensational striker and one of the best in Europe.

"I just hope he fails again against us."
