Confirmed teams: BATE vs Arsenal: Aubameyang & Torreira on the bench

By on February 14, 2019

Arsenal will hope to bring home a healthy lead from the first leg of our Europa League last-32 tie with BATE Borisov this evening [5.55pm kick off].

Unai Emery has left Pierre-Emerick Auabmeyang on the bench with Alexandre Lacazette starting up front with the support of Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. It means January signing Denis Suarez must make do with a place on the bench again.

Petr Cech starts in goal while we stick with the same back three that started against Huddersfield. Lucas Torreira drops out as Granit Xhaka is recalled in the middle of the park.

These are the line-ups:


Scherbitski, Volkov, Filipenko, Filipovic, Milic, Baga, Dragun, Skavysh, Hleb, Ríos, Stasevich.

Subs:  Chichkan, Yablonski, Berezkin, Dubajic, Simovic, Moukam, Bessmertney


Cech; Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Kolasinac; Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette.

Subs: Leno, Elneny, Torreira, Lichsteiner, Aubameyang, Suarez, Nketiah
