Arsenal vs BATE Prediction & Betting tips
Many teams still have the chance to jump into the second round on the last group match day of the Europa League. A club that still has the chance to make it into the top 32 teams, but whose chances are probably the smallest, is BATE Borisov from Belarus. The currently last of Group H needs not only a sensational victory at Arsenal FC, but also a draw in the parallel match between Red Star Belgrade and 1. FC Cologne. The odds are based on the odds of under 5%. However, hope always dies last and in football we have often experienced one or the other small miracle. Either way, the guests are going to get a full blow, as even without any sporting significance, a gig at the Emirates Stadium is something very special. While Borisov is thus preparing for the game on Thursday with great anticipation, the enthusiasm of the Gunners is limited. At the weekend, the Premier League lost to Manchester United 1-3 at home and in the Europa League is already secured 1st place anyway. Arsene Wenger will certainly not send his first team on the pitch. In this situation, we think a surprise, or at least a fairly tight game for not unlikely and betting on a few goals appear to be very profitable. The kick-off is on Thursday evening at 20:05.
Arsene Wenger is no longer undisputed at Arsenal FC. Just when the Gunners played in a good rhythm and found in the table the connection to the top group, there was the weekend the big setback. In the top match, the Londoners conceded despite pleasing performance a 1: 3 home defeat against Jose Mourinho and Manchester United. Thus, the Gunners dropped back to fifth place and the gap to front-runner City is already 15 points.
After all, there is positive news in the Europa League. The group victory is safe already after the fifth game day and the final meeting against BATE Borisov has thus no more sporting significance. This calendar year is still going strong. After the appearance against the Belorussians are still six league games and a cup game on the program until 31.12. It therefore seems certain that coach Wenger will send a B-Elf on the pitch on Thursday.
BATE Borisov is in the national Vysshaya league the measure of all things and has secured the championship title two weeks ago with a 3: 3 draw at FK Gorodeja. Behind them followed Dinamo Minsk and Schachzjor Salihorsk in 2nd and 3rd place. In the Europa League, the underdog in Group H has done very well and has already accumulated five points. Nevertheless, it will not be enough to enter the second round. The game against Arsenal is the last in calendar year 2017 and the players are no longer really in the game rhythm.
Nevertheless, you will put everything back in the balance to sell as dearly as possible in London. Although the hosts will spare some stars, the Belarusians lack the offensive quality to be really dangerous to the English. We trust Borisov to keep the game open for a long time and with luck we might even get a point win (0: 0 or 1: 1). In order to really make the leap into the KO phase, but from the guests’ point of view, Easter and Christmas would have to fall on one day.
