What Trueform says for BATE Borisov vs Arsenal
Arsenal look worthy favourites to brush aside BATE Borisov in the Europa League, judged on what we have seen over the past couple of years.
The Belarus outfit were beaten 6-0 and 4-2 by the Gunners last term and went down 3-1 and 1-0 against Chelsea during this season’s group stage.
On that evidence, Evens for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game is a percentage pick for our first BATE Borisov vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At BATE Borisov’s Betting Odds
As well as securing a 13th straight domestic title, BATE did well to get past HJK Helsinki and Qarabag in Champions League qualifiers last autumn.
However, they had their limitations exposed when beaten 6-2 on aggregate by PSV Eindhoven before dropping into this competition.
Two wins over Vidi and a closing 3-1 victory at PAOK Salonika helped Aliaksei Baha’s men finish as runners-up behind Chelsea in Group L, with nine goals scored and the same number conceded.
Igor Stasevich provided assists for six of those strikes, while fellow veteran midfielder Alexander Hleb, 37, spent three seasons at Arsenal between 2005 and 2008.
The hosts look out of their depth at this level but could make an impact going forward if prepared to give it a go on home turf, as when only beaten 3-2 here by PSV.
Looking at the BATE Borisov vs Arsenal odds, we like 37/20 for an away win and both teams to score.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal were pretty clinical en route to finishing top of Group E in front of Sporting Lisbon, dropping just two points and not letting in a single goal after an opening 4-2 defeat of Vorskla Poltava.
If the Gunners don’t concede here, it will set a new Europa League record for six successive clean sheets in the competition.
However, Unai Emery’s side have not managed to nil their opponents in any of 13 Premier League away matches this season, so we’re hoping BATE will have chances to bag a consolation strike.
Emery picked up this trophy three times as Sevilla boss, though, and clearly knows what it takes to keep progressing.
He used more players than any of the other 47 managers during the group stage, with several teenagers given a chance to shine among the 28 to feature.
An early FA Cup exit should allow Emery to be fully focused on this trip and field a strong team this time, though.
Let’s finish off our BATE Borisov vs Arsenal betting tips by taking 15/2 for the Gunners to prevail 2-1 in Belarus and then ease through in London.
