Confirmed: Olympiakos and Arsenal line-ups

Here is how Olympiakos and Arsenal will line up for this evening’s match:

Arsenal take on Olympiakos tonight in their final Champions League group match of the campaign, and the Gunners know a victory is vital if they are to stand any chance of reaching the knockout stages.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently third in Group F, three points behind tonight’s opponents who need only avoid defeat to join Bayern Munich in the next stage of the competition.

However, if Arsenal win by two clear goals, or by a score-line of 3-2 or more, they will do what looked almost impossible just a few weeks ago and continue in the competition rather than dropping into the Europa League.

That said Arsenal have a host of first-team regulars on the side-lines right now so it will be up to those who are available to step up and make this a night to remember for all the right reasons.

Arsenal lost the reverse fixture 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium back in September when Alfred Finnbogason scored what proved to be the winner.
