Arsenal vs BATE Borisov: Gunners expected to get back on track
Odds: Arsenal 2/5, Draw 17/4, BATE Borisov 23/5

Arsenal have already clinched top spot in their Europa League group but are still fancied to have too much class for BATE Borisov at Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners prevailed 4-2 when these teams met in Belarus in September and another open contest is on the cards as the visitors must win to have any chance of advancing in second place.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal suffered a first defeat in this pool when beaten by a 62nd-minute penalty in Cologne last time out, but they did dominate that game, enjoying 66 per cent of the possession.
Among their 16 goal attempts, Francis Coquelin hit a post, while Danny Welbeck, Reiss Nelson and Jack Wilshere all went close.
The Gunners did enough to qualify when starting with three straight wins, before drawing 0-0 with Red Star here and then losing in Germany.
However, boss Arsene Wenger will be keen to gain some momentum back before the knockout rounds, especially after losing in the Premier League to Manchester United last weekend, and an up-tempo performance is expected.
A Look At BATE Borisov’s Betting Odds
BATE Borisov still have an outside chance of getting through, but they must upset the odds by winning in London and hope that Red Star draw with Cologne in Belgrade.
Aleksandr Yermakovich’s side have acquitted themselves quite well, drawing twice with Red Star and beating Cologne in Belarus.
However, a 5-2 loss to the Bundesliga outfit in Germany and that previous clash with Arsenal have exposed their limitations.
