Olympiacos vs Arsenal Prediction
The Gunners traded goals in both legs of their double-header against Benfica in the Last 32, indeed, both teams have scored in five of Arsenal’s last six fixtures in the competitions.
Their fans have several positive signs to look ahead, namely the form of the team’s skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabonese forward has completed a hat-trick in a 4-2 home win over Leeds United before netting two goals in the 3-2 victory over Benfica in the previous round of the Europa League.
Olympiakos eliminated Arsenal in the knockout rounds of last season’s Europa League, and the familiar foes meet again in the competition’s latter stages this year.
