Worth mentioning: In the previous meeting in Borisov, BATE managed to upset their visitors by staying mainly in their own half and waiting to exploit Arsenal’s weaknesses at the back on the counter attack. The Londoners had over 70% possession of the ball but had no idea what to do, besides endless crossing into the penalty area. In the only meeting in England the Gunners managed to put six past BATE goalkeeper, but expect them to start getting nervous if the score is still 0:0 around the half-hour mark.

Worth mentioning: Both of the teams did not have any games to play in between their Europa League two legged encounter. Expect Arsenal coach Unai Emery to field a strong squad for the upcoming clash, as his team have no other cup involvements and winning this competition might be their last chance of ensuring Champions League football for next season. The league in Belarus is still on winter break and BATE’s only competitive meeting for 2019 was last week’s game.
