Our prediction: Olympiakos v Arsenal

Arsenal have endured a rollercoaster season to date and their 1-1 draw at Burnley at the weekend exposed a team that sometimes simply runs out of ideas.

Defensively they must be strong in Greece on Thursday to prevent Olympiakos from taking a victory into the second leg.

Both teams should score here and, like in the previous round against Benfica, it may be down to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka to haul the Gunners out of a hole.

Our prediction: Olympiakos 1-1 Arsenal (11/2 at bet365)
