BATE will take on Arsenal in a 1/16 final battle on Thursday in Belarus. The teams have history in the competition with the advantage on Arsenal’ side and another minus for BATE might be that their domestic league have been in winter break for more than two months now. BATE met another London side in the group stages this season and lost twice to Chelsea.
