The Gunners must be wary of free-scoring Olympiakos as they go in search for goals in Greece.
Arsenal travel to Greece on Wednesday night knowing that they have to win by two clear goals if they are to progress to the knockout stages of this years Champions League.
Olympiakos currently sit second in Group F and know that if they avoid defeat against Arsenal they are guaranteed to qualify.
Marco Silva’s team have won all three of their previous Champions league encounters with the Premier League side on home turf and have not drawn a home game in this competition since a goalless stalemate against Chelsea in 2008.
The Greek champions have no real injury concerns ahead of the fixture and Silva’s only decision to make is whether to bring back fit-again Argentinian midfielder, Esteban Cambiasso back into the fold.
Arsenal’s recent form has been indifferent to say the least. Wenger’s men endured a terrible November which saw the team fail to win a league game (2 draws 1 defeat) as well as being hammered by Bayern 5-1.
The Gunners did beat Sunderland 3-1 at the Emirates on Saturday but were not convincing in doing so. The injuries are also piling up for Arsenal with Santi Cazorla being ruled out for up to four months with a knee injury.
He joins Chile forward Alexis Sanchez and Francis Coquelin on the injury list along with long term absentees; Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky.
Both teams to score
Arsenal have failed to keep a clean sheet in 11 of their last 12 away games in the group stage of this competition, and with them striving for goals against an potent Greek side, expect goals at both ends. Back both teams to score at 8/13 at bet 365.
Olympiakos to score two or more
Olympiakos have scored 2 goals or more in 17 out of their 20 competitive games this season. They have also achieved the feat in their last two home matches against Arsenal as well as putting three past the Gunners in September. Back Olympiakos to score 2 or more at 6/4 on Paddy Power.
