Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Arsene Wenger could field a fringe side when BATE Borisov vist them on Thursday for the final group game of the 2017/18 Europa League.
With 10 points from five game, the Gunners sit at the top of their group with a 4 point cushion over Red Star and Koln. A defeat on Thursday will can’t make any remove them from the spot.
Arsenal’s defeat against Koln on matchday 5 put and end to their unbeaten streak in the competition. They won the first three games before a goal-less stalemate at home against Red Star Belgrade.
It was a goal-bonanza when these two met on matchday 2 of the competition. The final score read 4-2 in favor of the Premier League side, but they should have won it by a further margin.
Bate sit at the foot of the table with 5 points. They can still qualify if they could better the result of Red
Star versus Koln. This simply means that they must win here hoping the other game ends in a draw.
Bate’s lone win in the group phase came at home against Koln. They drew Red Star twice while losing to both Arsenal and Koln by heavy margins (2-5).
