Europa League: Arsenal captain on overturning deficit

Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny says his teammates are focused as they target to advance when they take on BATE Borisov in the Europa League round of 32 second leg tie. 

The Gunners suffered a 1-0 shock defeat in the first leg as Alexandre Lacazette saw red during the away loss. However, Unai Emery's men have a chance of making things right when they play hosts to the Belarus side. Koscielny has revealed his teammates are focused on the game and is positive they will register a win and advance to the round of 16. 

"The first game was difficult because we went to BATE with ambition and wanted to win. During the game, you never know what can happen. The pitch was difficult as well," said the captain.

"Now the reality is we are 1-0 down and we know the game we want to play tomorrow, we have the quality to qualify and go to the next round. Each player is focused and it is a very important game because it is a chance to get to a final and get into the Champions League. Everyone is together and that’s the most important thing for tomorrow," he added.
