With an unusual 5.55pm kick off time expected to affect attendance, Unai Emery says we will need everyone to be together if we are to beat BATE Borisov.
"For us tomorrow is a very important match, after the first result we must manage the 90 minutes and also know if we need more minutes after the 90 minutes it can be in our mind with the preparation to do that," our head coach said.
"It is also very important to play in our stadium with our supporters, and we need their support for this match and I hope there is a big atmosphere for us. Together, with their support, I know our players can play and give their all.
"I don’t know [if the kick-off time will affect the atmosphere], but we want and we need the supporters. If we can create a big atmosphere tomorrow, then it is very important.
"The supporters want to watch our team play with the best performance possible. For this reason, I think we need good feedback between the supporters and us.
"We need to listen to them supporting us and the players must give them the best performance in our stadium."
