Arsenal v BATE Borisov: Match preview

Arsenal have already sewn up top spot in Group H, and with it their passage into the round of 32, and on Thursday they welcome a Bate Borisov side desperate to join them in the knockout rounds.

For the Belarussians to do so, they will have to win in North London and also hope that Red Star Belgrade and FC Koln – who sit above Borisov in the standings – play out a draw in their clash in Serbia.

Arsene Wenger is sure to shuffle his deck, as he has done in every game of their European campaign so far, which should mean starts for the likes of Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck.

The England duo are desperate to prove their form and fitness with the carrot of a World Cup in Russia dangling in front of them this summer.

Both were included in round five when top spot was secured but they needed Bate to do them a favour by holding Red Star at home to a goalless draw. The Gunners meanwhile fell to their first defeat of the European campaign, going down 1-0 in Cologne.

But having beaten Bate 4-2 back in September - in a thrilling game that saw four goals inside the first half an hour - Wenger will be in relaxed mood – as he was after their defeat last time out in Europe.

“You feel you have done the job to finish top of the group. We now play our final game at home against BATE Borisov without much at stake, other than the fact that we want to win the game.

“What does it really mean? I don't know. It's what we wanted.”

Arsenal v BATE Borisov: Team news

Arsene Wenger has said he will play "quite an experienced team" because some members of his squad need competitive game time ahead of a busy December for the Gunners.

The likes of Olivier Giroud, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott have featured heavily in the Europa League, despite not starting a Premier League game between them this season.

With the Belarusians still in contention of qualifying as runners-up to Arsenal, Wenger is keen to guard against any complacency within his squad.

The North London side have used largely the same players throughout the European campaign and with none in danger of missing the first leg of the last 32 through suspension, there may not be many changes.
