The trouble with home and away ties against teams that we don’t know too much about is that one tends to use up all the information available in the first leg. When it comes to the second leg there then isn’t too much to say.
But rather than offer you a blank page, here’s what I have been able to rustle up
As the table shows, we’ve already won the Europa group stage league and so go through as a seeded club
|Red Star Belgrade||5||1||3||1||2||2||0||6|
As for BATE, when we looked at them ahead of the first game they were winning every match they played in and then (as Paul Merson’s script writer might say) some games they weren’t even involved in. But of late they have not had it all their own way. Indeed them most certainly didn’t have it their way in an extraordinary Euorpa game against Cologne.
However given it is all over and we have won the group maybe some of those youngsters who really want a bit of game time might come in. It depends in part who Mr Wenger wants to keep happy and how he sees the balance of the team. He after all, does have the advantage of seeing them in practice.
