Roy Keane's brutal response when asked about Arsenal's Champions League hopes

Roy Keane believes Arsenal will fail to beat Olympiakos.

Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane does not believe Arsenal will qualify from their Champions League group.

The Gunners need a 2-0 win away to Olympiakos in their final game to qualify, or if they can score three or more, then a difference of one goal would suffice.

Speaking to ITV's Champions League highlights show, Keane was asked whether he felt Arsenal would make the last 16.

He responded: "No, not for me no."

"I just don't fancy them, not away from home.

"At home they are not bad, they are comfortable, away from home - different game."

There was the perfect evidence of this in the two matches against Bayern Munich in which the Gunner won the home fixture, before being hammered away from home 5-1.

Yet it was being too comfortable at home against Olympiakos which got them into this mess in the first place, losing 3-2 in a shock result at the start of last month.

With all the motivation they need to pull off a result, there can be no excuses for Arsenal in a fortnight's time, and failure will only fuel their doubters - of which Keane is certainly one.
