Arsenal reached this stage of the competition by recording 16 points from their six group games, as well as keeping five clean sheets.
Emery has a number of selection dilemmas ahead of Thursday's match, and here Sports Mole looks at how the North London outfit could line up against the Belarusian champions.
Out: Hector Bellerin (knee), Rob Holding (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (ankle)
Doubtful: Granit Xhaka (groin), Aaron Ramsey (knee), Mesut Ozil (illness), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (illness)
Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have both been suffering with illness, but the pair are expected to recover in time to feature against BATE.
Aubameyang is a likely starter with Arsenal not playing at the weekend, while Ozil could also feature from the opening whistle with Denis Suarez lining up alongside him.
The rest of the team could remain the same from the weekend, with Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey unlikely to be risked while they deal with groin and knee problems respectively.
