Giroud buries the penalty on the first try, however he is then made to retake it. He goes the identical approach - to  Scherbitski's left - on the second try, and although the keeper will get a hand to it, the ball nonetheless finally ends up behind the web

63 min 

Penalty Arsenal. Walcott is taken out by Milunovic, and it is a deserved pen. 

61 min

Poor from Giroud. He is so determined to attain that he overlooks the better-placed Wilshere and tries to leather-based one at purpose from the sting of the field. The trouble flies excessive and extensive

Giroud seems to be determined to get on the scoresheet, however he would not fairly pay money for a sighter from vary, and it skews extensive by way of a deflection.

GOAL! Arsenal four BATE Borisov Zero (Polyakov OG 51')

51 min

Fewer than 30,000 spectators have truly turned up tonight so that is, by a distance, the smallest ever Emirates crowd. The earlier low was 44,000 for the Carabao Cup match in opposition to Doncaster in September.

46 min

We're again underneath approach on the Emirates. John Hartson believes something lower than a 7-Zero win could be a disappointment for Arsenal. 

First-half abstract

It's been painfully one-sided up to now, with Wilshere and Walcott particularly trying far too good for his or her extraordinarily restricted opponents (most likely as a result of they're). These two have reduce the BATE defenders to ribbons, and if this sport was a boxing match it might have been stopped a very long time in the past.
As it's, Arsenal ought to have some enjoyable toying with the Belarusians within the second half. 


Sweet reduction for BATE, who're being completely battered right here

45 min

One minute of added on time to be performed

GOAL! Arsenal three BATE Borisov Zero (Wilshere 43')

A nicely deserved purpose for Wilshere - his first for Arsenal since Could 2015. The midfielder exchanges passes with Walcott, after which drops the shoulder earlier than smashing a end that is far too highly effective for Scherbitski. Arsenal are rampant right here; BATE are terrible

40 min

How on earth has that stayed out?! Walcott thinks he is bought his second as he swivels his physique to slip house Wilshere's pull-back, however Polyakov makes a determined lunge to make a goal-line clearance. Good piece of defending, however BATE are getting completely torn to shreds right here

GOAL! Arsenal 2 BATE Borisov Zero (Walcott 37')

It's been coming, and it is the Arsenal skipper for the night time who will get the purpose. Elneny wins the ball across the half-way line, and he and Coquelin work the ball extensive to Welbeck. Regardless of getting himself right into a tangle, a determined BATE sort out solely succeeds in sending the ball to Walcott, who steadies himself and buries a end into the underside nook from about eight yards out.  

35 min

Arsenal have accomplished 258 passes to BATE's 61 up to now tonight. It actually has been an entire mis-match up to now
