The 2017/18 UEFA Europa League has reached the final group game and in Group H, BATE Borisov will travel to London to take on Arsenal knowing they still have chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.
Arsenal have sealed their place in the next round as group winners, despite falling to a 1-0 defeat in Koln on match day five. With 10 points from their 5 games played, Arsene Wenger knows his team are guaranteed to finish top of the group and progress.
BATE Borisov come into this match sitting bottom of the group and will have one eye on the other match between Red Star Belgrade and Koln.

Arsenal are regarded as the front-runners to win the Europa League this season priced at 7.00 with Bet365.

BATE Borisov have not travelled well in this competition and their previous away match saw them thrashed 5-2 by Koln. They did pick up a point in a 0-0 draw at Red Star Belgrade on the opening match day but it is unlikely they will repeat that feat in this match.
BATE Borisov are 7.00 with to win the game and 5.25 to take a point back with them to Belarus.
