One week ago, Arsenal FC suffered the lowest moment of first-year Coach Unai Emery's tenure at the club so far, traveling to face FC BATE Borisov, little-known champions of the Belarussian Premier League in a UEFA Europa League Round of 32 first-leg match, only to lose a dismal 1-0 decision, as the BBC reported, to a team they had thrashed with 10 goals over the two games of the Europa League group stage competition in 2017. Adding salt to the wound, the Gunners lost star striker Alexandre Lacazette (12 goals in all competitions) to a sending-off, meaning that the World Cup-winning French international will also be on the sidelines for the return leg, which will live stream from the Emirates.

While BATE has dominated their domestic league, winning the title in Belarus in every one of the last 13 seasons, they would have been considered no match for the storied English side — and in addition to the obvious talent difference, the Belarusian league plays an earlier season than most of Europe, meaning that BATE had not played in a competitive match for two months, as Fansided reported.
On Thursday, Arsenal must score at least two to be sure that their European season remains alive. But BATE comes in on a three-match, Europa League winning streak, as the BBC noted, putting Arsenal in a nerve-wracking position they would not have anticipated just a week earlier.
