Bate Borisov vs Arsenal – Europa League: Arsenal goes to Belarus to face Bate Borisov on a Europa League match.
We all know very well that the English teams aren’t very interested in the Europa League, although we did see United winning the competition last year, since they focused on this competition.
And the Europa League can be a very nice consolation prize for Arsenal, who are a team in need of an important title, in order to return to the Champions League and give their fans some joy.
Their Europa League start was nice, winning at home over Koln 3-1. On the Premier League, things aren’t going so well for them.
Arsenal sit in only 7th place on the league table. For this match, there are some players being rested probably, before their match against West Bromwich.

Bate Borisov vs Arsenal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a 6-match unbeaten streak, BATE hosts Arsenal at home. The Belarusian team failed to reach the Champions’ League group stage by being eliminated by Slavia Prague on the qualifying stage.
On the Europa League, they started off with a draw against Crvena Zvezda away from home so they have 1 point so far in this group. On the league, they are fighting for the title.
They sit in 3rd place with 51 points and they are fighting for the trophy. Of course I recognise Arsenal’s heavy favouritism. But Bate is generally a tough opponent when playing at home, even on the European stage.
Therefore, I believe they can at least score, especially due to the defensive problems Arsenal has been showing lately.
