Arsenal slip at Bate Borisov with Lacazette denied goal and sent off

Friday 08:05 GMT

Bate Borisov still managed to more than nullify the best this current flawed Arsenal incarnation could offer and inflict a defeat that was as worrying for its style as for the result.

Bate Borisov 1-0 Arsenal, Galatasaray 1-2 Benfica, Krasnodar 0-0 Leverkusen, Lazio 0-1 Sevilla, Olympiacos 2-2 Dynamo Kyiv, Rapid Vienna 0-1 Inter, Rennes 3 Real Betis 3, Slavia Prague 0-0 Genk. Bate were not content just to hold what they had as Cech made two vital second half saves and attention now sharpens for next week’s second leg.

Bate Borisov 1-0 Arsenal: Gunners suffer defeat in Belarus

Friday 15:26 GMT

Arsenal meet Bate again for the second leg at Emirates Stadium next Thursday (17:55 GMT) before returning to Premier League duty at home to Southampton on Sunday, 24 February (14:05 GMT).

It was no more than Bate deserved as Arsenal faded quickly after a bright start on a bumpy pitch and sub-zero conditions in Belarus. Aliaksei Baga's side were playing their first competitive match since December and doggedly held on to their lead in the second half.
