Arsenal host Greek side Olympiacos tonight in the second leg of the Europa League last-32 tie.

The Gunners come into the game with a healthy 1-0 lead from last week’s first leg in Piraeus, courtesy of Alexander Lacazette’s late winner.

After gaining an important away goal, Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking for a positive result to get them over the line and ensure that they are in the draw for the last 16.
