Arsenal-Mesut-Ozil-2018

Arsenal will be looking to turn the tie around when we welcome BATE Borisov to the Emirates for the second leg of our Europa League last-32 clash this evening.

Mesut Ozil is back in the starting eleven as Unai Emery makes plenty of changes from the side that lost 1-0 in the first leg last week. Stephan Lichtsteiner also comes in to a back four in place of Ainsley Maitland-Niles – who’s suffering from a virus – while Nacho Monreal looks to be starting at left-back with Sead Kolasinac on the bench.

Sokratis must also make-do with a substitutes role as Shkodran Mustafi keeps his place along with Laurent Koscielny while Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka are preferred to Lucas Torreira in midfield.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starts up front on his own with Alexandre Lacazette suspended while Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan join Ozil in the attack. That means Aaron Ramsey and Denis Suarez must make do with places among the subs. Youngster Eddie Nketiah  is also in the squad so will offer an attacking option from the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Cech; Lichtsteiner, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Guendouzi, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Iwobi; Aubameyang

Subs: Leno, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Torreira, Ramsey, Suarez, Nketiah.

BATE

Scherbitski; Rios, Volkov, Filipenko, Filipovic; Baga, Dragun, Simovic; Milic, Skavysh, Stasevich.

Subs: Chichkan, Yablonski, Berezkin, Dubajic, Hleb, Nemirko, Moukam
