General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 Almost a great opportunity for Nketiah to score on his debut! The youngster plays a nice one-two with Giroud before bursting through the BATE back line, but his run forward is slightly mistimed and the linesman's flag is quickly raised.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be two minutes of added time.
89' E. Nketiah enters the game and replaces J. Willock.
Arsenal have made another late switch, with Edward Nketiah coming on to take the place of Willock.
88' More good play by Stasevich over on the left wing sets him up to whip in a cross from just outside of the Arsenal box, but the ball into the penalty area is overhit and sails behind for a goal-kick before it can pick out a team-mate.
87' M. Ivanić gets yellow.
Arsenal are easily able to deal with the resulting corner and then quickly counter-attack through Giroud. The Frenchman is only able to reach the halfway line, however, as Ivanic cynically trips the Frenchman to the ground with a mistimed challenge.
86' Stasevich twists and turns over on the left-hand side of the Arsenal penalty area before eventually managing to fizz a pass across the face of goal. It's well hit by the attacking midfielder, but Mustafi is there to deal with the danger at the near post.
85' D. Baga enters the game and replaces A. Volodko.
Dmitri Baga has come on to replace Alyaksandr Volodko in BATE's third and final alteration of the game.
83' Almost a chance for Arsenal to make it 5-2! Maitland-Niles cuts inside from the left flank before picking out McGuane with a clever pass over to the right wing. The youngster quickly knocks the ball into the path of Walcott and sets up the forward to shoot, but his cross-cum-shot is poor and flies well wide of the goal.
81' Giroud spots the goalkeeper slightly off his line and tries to beat him with a cheeky lob from 20 yards out. It's well hit by the striker but can't quite find the back of the net, flying just a yard or so over the top of the crossbar instead.
79' M. McGuane enters the game and replaces R. Nelson.
Arsenal have made their first change of the night, with Nelson making way for 18-year-old Marcus McGuane.
