BATE Borisov Vs Arsenal ( 1st leg )
Stadium: Borisov Arena
Date: Thursday, February 14, 2019
Arsenal Vs BATE Borisov
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Date: week commencing Monday, February 18.
The gunners faced BATE Borisov last season in the UEFA Europa League group stage matches and Arsenal won home and away, so they will be hoping to have similar performances so that they can qualify for the round of 16. Arsenal will this season be hoping to revenge their last season’s semi final loss to Atletico Madrid by winning it in May next year.
Most of the Arsenal fans have reacted happily about the UEFA Europa League round of 16 draw and most of them are saying that it’s going to be an easy match for them since the Belarus side is average if compared with the North Londoners.
